15 Things to Make With Hard-Boiled Eggs
1. Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs are creamy, delectable, and easy to make. And they’re so pretty to boot. It’s the perfect appetizer!
Ahh. The classic egg salad sandwich. It may not smell appetizing, but it tastes fantastic! It’s super rich, creamy, and so irresistible.
It’s so easy to make it at home! Mash eggs, mayo, and mustard, until smooth and creamy.
Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy with bread or a croissant!
Nope, that’s no typo. ELT is a fun variation of the BLT, where the bacon is replaced with a humble, hard-boiled egg.
And don’t worry, just because we’re taking out the bacon doesn’t mean your sandwich won’t taste as good. Try it, and it’ll be love at first bite.
You just spread mayo on bread, top it with slices of tomato and hard-boiled egg, lettuce, and close it with another slice of bread.
It’s so good, you won’t even miss the bacon!
For another super healthy and yummy sandwich, slice up some tomatoes and avocados and put them on an English muffin.
Top it with a sliced hard-boiled egg and close the muffin. It’s like an elevated avocado toast!
If you’re not in the mood for bread, you can always opt for a salad.
Hard-boiled eggs make such a great addition to leafy bowls. They taste great, and they’ll supply you with extra protein and nutrition to boot!
For this salad, I like combining mixed greens, cubed avocados, sliced hard-boiled eggs, croutons, and bacon for that yummy crunch. Any vinaigrette dressing is perfect for this!
Breakfast bowls are all the rage nowadays, and it’s not surprising! They’re hearty, tasty, and so good for your body.
My personal favorite is combining quinoa, pesto, avocado slices, and a hard-boiled egg to finish it off. The strong flavor and the vibrant color are just so inviting, I can’t resist.
You’ve probably noticed by now that I keep pairing hard-boiled eggs and avocados. The explanation is simple: they taste so well together!
So, here’s another fantastic breakfast bowl for you. This one is so scrumptious, it’s hard to believe it’s good for you!
To make, combine cubed hard-boiled eggs, chopped red onion, and avocado and bell pepper slices. Season with salt and pepper and voila! You’ll have a fun, fantastic breakfast.
This lip-smacking potato salad is to die for! This recipe calls for edamame and hard-boiled potatoes, so you can just imagine how awesome it is.
It comes together quick and easy, too. You cook all the ingredients – potatoes, eggs, and edamame in a single pot, just at different times.
For the dressing, just mix onion, vinegar, oil, and chopped basil, mint, and dill. Flavor with salt and pepper.
Once all the elements are ready, coat the potatoes and edamame with the dressing, and top with sliced hard-boiled eggs.
This is perfect for when you have a ton of leftover ham!
Ham and egg both make such a delicious sandwich filling, so why not put them together?
Here’s how to make the tastiest, heartiest ham and egg salad:
Finely mince the ham with a knife. If you want to make things easier, there’s always the food processor.
Toss the ham with finely chopped hard-boiled eggs and pickle relish. Coat in mayo until it’s smooth and creamy.
Chill it in the fridge for an hour, and it’s ready for use.
10. Cobb Salad
We can’t talk about salads and not bring up the classic cobb salad. It’s such a colorful, tasty, and healthy dish! It’s even better with some hard-boiled eggs.
For this cobb salad, I suggest a creamy Greek yogurt dressing flavored with dill, buttermilk, garlic and onion powder, and salt and pepper. Yum yum yum.
Ahh. The perfect holiday breakfast. Meats, veggies, cheese, all baked into one delectable dish!
But if you want to take it to another level, add some hard-boiled eggs into the mix. The flavor and texture combination is just perfection.
12. On top of your oatmeal
You might consider oatmeal as a sweet dish, but hey, who says it can’t be savory?
Instead of sugar or honey, flavor your oatmeal with salt and pepper, and top it with a sliced hard-boiled egg. Delish!
Who can say no to a breakfast burrito? While they’re usually filled with scrambled eggs, hard-boiled eggs are just as good!
Chop up some hard-boiled eggs and layer them into your tortilla. Add your favorite ground meat, veggies, salsa, and cheese. Roll the tortilla and enjoy!
14. Soy Sauce Eggs
Do you know those boiled eggs restaurants put in their ramen? Notice how they have a darker color and more flavor than regular ones?
That’s because they marinate the eggs in soy sauce, cinnamon, sugar, and star anise. And yes, you can do it yourself to garnish your homemade ramen.
Soak your hard-boiled eggs in the mixture overnight and you’re done.
This is not a drill, people! Who would’ve thought you can use hard-boiled eggs to make chocolate chip cookies?
This is definitely one more thing kids can look forward to.
To make, just add 2 finely chopped hard-boiled eggs into your ordinary cookie batter, mix, and scoop into a baking dish. Pop them in the oven and they’re done!
