When I was a child, my siblings, our cousins and friends had lots of fun with leftover boiled Easter eggs. We would have egg hunts for the entire week after Easter Sunday. There were times we would find eggs in the grass several weeks later. By then they were rotten.
I recall early in our marriage, how my husband was eating several boiled eggs a day, until two weeks after the Sunday we celebrate the resurrection of Christ. My grandmother always said he would die of acute indigestion. I am glad he did not. Acute indigestion was believed to caused death in decades past.
If you have leftover boiled Easter eggs, there are ways to utilize them before they are rotten or cause illness. This year after Easter, my husband and I had more than 2 dozen eggs that had been dyed. The grandchildren did not come over, so we had to dispose of them ourselves.
We made use of the eggs by eating them for breakfast, and or lunch. This saved me time and energy, because I was not having to fry, poach, or scramble the eggs for breakfast. All I had to do was grab a few from the Easter basket.
I also put the eggs in tuna salad, garden salad, and deviled ham salad. I was going to devil some of the eggs, but we had finished them off before I thought of that idea. Here are some more options for left over hard boiled eggs.
You can cook the with asparagus, or make egg salad. Hard boiled eggs may also be added to potato salad, meatloaf, and rice. I have also,, at other ties of the year garnished spinach, mustard and turnip greens with slices of boiled egg. You ca be creative, and come up with your own ideas of how to use these holiday eggs. it will be fun.
