Things to do With Leftover Hard Boiled Eggs

Things to do with hard boiled eggs - Family Fresh Meals


Growing up, Easter was one of my favorite holidays. I loved getting all dressed up, painting eggs, spending time with family and of course getting an Easter basket filled with goodies. As an adult, it’s one of my least favorite and it’s all because of the eggs.

Making them is no big deal. I actually make hard boiled eggs in the oven and Big D and Little D love painting eggs so we make a ton. But I loathe dealing with them after the are painted.  I always end up making egg salad sandwiches or just eating them with a bit of mayo. But that can get boring FAST!  This year I am planning ahead. I am deciding now what I want to do with all those leftover hard boiled eggs and coming up with a plan of attack! Here’s a few on the plan 🙂
