If youâ€™re anything like us, you had way too many eggs over the Easter holiday. I suppose we do not really think about the days following the holiday â€“ what are we going to do with all those eggs? Some are simply wasteful and throw them away. At this point in time, though, wastefulness is something that we shouldnâ€™t even consider. So, what to do with all those Easter eggs?
The answer is simple: be as creative as you can and come up with new recipes to make use of those leftover eggs. I found some really mouthwatering recipes over at iVillage; here are my favorites, which I shall make use of!
Deviled Bacon and Eggs
All you need are the hardboiled eggs (of which you have plenty, I assume), some bacon, salt, mayo, and pepper. Get the yolk and mash it with the seasonings and mayo. Put the mashed yolk back into the egg whites and top with crispy bacon. Simple, isnâ€™t it? I think Iâ€™m going to add some cayenne pepper for more kick.
Garlic Pickled Hard Cooked Eggs
Doesnâ€™t the name make your mouth water? For this, youâ€™ll need hardboiled eggs (without the shells, of course), pickle juice (just get the juice from a can or bottle of pickles), peppercorns, red pepper flakes, garlic cloves, bay leaves, and juniper berries. Combine all the ingredients in a jar huge enough to contain the eggs plus liquid. Keep in the fridge for at least 3 days. Dig in! According to the recipe, this can be kept in the fridge for 2 weeks before you need to throw it out. I think it 2 weeks wonâ€™t pass by before you eat it all up!
