So you colored the eggs all the beautiful colors of the rainbow for Easter. Your kids had so much fun finding them…so, now what do you do with all these eggs? I don’t know about your family, but we usually have at least 12 hard-boiled eggs along with 30+ plastic eggs that my kids want to leave out for the Easter Bunny! They love the looking for the eggs on Easter morning. While we can just put the plastic eggs away for next time, there are a lot of hard boiled eggs that need to be eaten. Sometimes we just eat them plain or add them to a green salad, but one of my favorite recipes to use up the eggs is Egg Salad Sandwiches.
This recipe is pretty easy to make. Just peel and slice the eggs into small pieces. Finely chop the onion and celery. Mix all the ingredients together. We like to serve it on bread (sometimes toasted bread), with a “healthy dose” of dark salad greens and sliced tomato. (My healthy dose is what I call a generous serving!) This makes for a great dinner when you don’t have much time or also on a hot summer day when it is just too hot to cook! Being that it is early spring here in Western NY and the temperature is in the 40’s, I am looking forward to those days! :o)
