When You Have Eleventy-seven Hardboiled Eggs and Don't Know What To Do With Them

Deviled Eggs
My kids love these for an afterschool snack.  They like to take them to school, too, but I haven't found a way to do this without mess.  Quick, easy, and yummy. Here's how I do it:

  1. Carefully slice the eggs in half lenthwise.
  2. Put the yolk into a small mixing bowl or food processor.
  3. Add 1 T Miracle Whip and 2 tsps mustard for 6 egg yolks. 
  4. Add 1 tsp pickle relish.
  5. If doing this by hand, mash well with a fork.  If using a food processor, pulse until blended and creamy.
  6. Fill each egg half's hollow with the mixture.  
  7. Sprinkle with paprika.  (The more adventurous might like cayenne. Young kids who didn't get weaned on Tabasco sauce will not.)

Egg Salad
Use for sandwiches within three days.
  1. Dice your eggs, yolk and all.
  2. Add diced celery (I use one rib for 5-6 eggs)
  3. Add diced onion (I don't like onion much, so I add about 1/8 cup)
  4. Add pickle relish (a tablespoon)
  5. Add mustard (2 teaspoons)
  6. Add Miracle Whip (1 Tablespoon to start, may need 2)
  7. Mix.  Voila.  Egg salad.


Quick Pickled Eggs
You can quickly pickle eggs by using the liquid from canned/jarred beets.  Just cover the eggs with the beet juice from canned beets, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or several hours.  There you go, quickly pickled eggs.



A couple other options:

  • Dice the white and use as a salad topping.
  • My daughter, who is vegetarian, adds hard boiled eggs to vegetable soups.  
  • You can freeze hard boiled eggs to use another day.  Simply thaw them in the refrigerator and then use them.

I love deviled eggs! yum!
I have a couple of giveaways going on at my blog, Frugal Shopper doesn't like to post these, so I thought I would let you know in case you were interested

I also use the devil eggs, and egg sandwich filler as dip for crackers and veggies

About Me

I am a happily married woman with four children and various cats and kittens (fosters). I love to read and my favourite authors are George RR Martin, Thomas Hardy, Raymond Carver, PD James, Kurt Vonnegut, J. K. Rowling, and Margaret Atwood. I know there are only three women in that list (and none of them American), so if you'd like to suggest some I'm willing to give them a shot! And yes, I am an American living in Canada. (Hence the nick -- CannedAm.) I like it here. There are things about the states that I miss, but my love is here and this country has things to offer that my own does not. Things that make my quality of life much better than it ever was in Ohio. Guess I'm stuck here. Though there's a nice spot in the Appalachian hills where I'd love to spend my retirement.
