The day after Easter can have you looking at a pile of hardboiled eggs and questions on what to do with them. I'm lucky in a sense, my son has never enjoyed the dying of eggs or the eating of said eggs. When he was very young, he would not touch the dye. He hated getting it on his hands. Not sure why, just one of those quirky things. At six years of age, he asked that we never do it again. Year after year I've asked him if he wanted to dye the eggs and the answer is always the same, no. In fact this year, he didn't want to search for the plastic eggs either. The reason, we still had all the eggs from last year sitting in a cupboard that he had never opened. He is just not a big candy eater. Hershey's milk chocolate bars and tootsie roll pops are about all he really likes. I'm good with that. Though I did make him search for a basket that had the plastic eggs in it. I loved the look he gave me when he found the basket
How's that for a total, what the heck Mom look. He can't stand the plastic eggs. What he doesn't know, they each have a dollar.
So all in all, we don't end up with any hardboiled eggs unless I make them for me, which I did. Here I present to you, optional ways to make egg salad.
Hope you enjoy.
3 large hard boiled Eggs
1 1/2 TBSP Mayo
1 tsp Mustard (yellow, stone, hot, ground, dijon.......your choice)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cherry Tomatoes and Pepper Bacon
Red Onion and Cilantro
Avocado and Sun Dried Tomato
Diced Carrots and Cherry Tomato
Diced Basil and Cherry Tomato
Green Onion and Sun Dried Tomato
Cheddar cheese and Pepper Bacon
Also: Instead of adding mustard, try fresh horseradish and tomatoes
Instead of Salt and Pepper, use Lemon Pepper or Paprika or Chili Powder
Hard boil your eggs
Mash, I just use a large fork
Add the Mayo and Mustard, it averages about 1/2 TBSP of Mayo for each large egg, you can reduce if using smaller eggs
Dice any add ins small, if gluten free serve on cucumber rounds or wrap in lettuce or spinach
Mash up the eggs well so there are no large chunks
