10 Recipe Ideas for Leftover Hard-Boiled Eggs

We’ve all been there. Maybe you hard boiled a dozen eggs on Sunday night, with a plan to eat two for breakfast each morning that week—and you ran out of steam by Wednesday. Or maybe you’d planned on a few egg-salad sandwiches, but alas, the lunch has lots its luster. We’ve got 10 ideas for how you can put leftover hard-boiled eggs to work, for any meal (or snack, for that matter). Of course there’s the classic deviled egg, but we push beyond that with five different preparation ideas. Then there’s the tastiest Cobb salad you’ve ever encountered, and plenty of genius tricks for disguising or otherwise jazzing up the leftovers: One of our recipes involves grating hard-boiled eggs to use as a filling for delicate tea sandwiches; another involves slicing the eggs and layering them over English muffins for delightful miniature pizzas; and don’t miss our deconstructed Niçoise salad, which requires very little prep but boasts lots of protein, a tangy and easy (ahem, bottled) dressing, and plenty of crunch. Perhaps you’re searching for a little bit of inspiration for an egg salad that’s not bland and boring. Read on for three ideas that use curry powder, fresh herbs, and pickle relish to embellish basic sandwiches. Who knows, after clicking through our ideas for leftover hard-boiled eggs, you might be inspired to boil a pot of water and make another batch. Hard-boiled eggs will last in the refrigerator, in their shells in a baggie or sealed storage container, for at least one week.
