Deviled Eggs

It's Monday morning, the day after Easter, coffee is brewing and breakfast is in progress, so you open the refrigerator and find -- a (few) dozen hard boiled eggs, dyed a rainbow of colors, and consuming too much space for their own good. What do you do? You don't want to waste them, but how many hard boiled eggs can a single household consume? Question no more, here are five great recipes for those leftover Easter eggs!

Deviled Eggs, one of the easiest and most traditional uses for hard boiled eggs. With tons of variations (smokey, spicy, retro, Mexican-style) there's something for everyone!

If you have already skipped past deviled eggs, the next logical choice would be an Egg Salad sandwich! Just as with deviled eggs, you can add just about anything (leftover ham, cheese, onions, Tabasco/Cholula, etc.) and have an instant high-protein meal!

Eggs Jeanette is a unique recipe by Jacques Pepin and takes Deviled Eggs one step further -- into the pan!

A gourmet take on Eggs Benedict, Hard Boiled Eggs with a Tarragon Brie Sauce calls for hard boiled rather than poached eggs.

For a fun appetizer, try Scotch Eggs, a traditional UK appetizer - pairs best with a dark beer. Vegetarian? No worries - we've got you covered.
