I know that most Easter egg hunts have moved to the "plastic egg" variety instead of using real eggs.  But it seems like real eggs make it into the mix one way or another... Especially if you have little kids that still like to color eggs.

In either case, you're probably going to find that you'll be left with upwards of 4 dozen eggs and you don't want to waste them.

We asked you how to make use of hard boiled eggs and I think it's safe to say, we gathered enough ideas to plow through a good portion of your extras.

  • Deviled Eggs - They really aren't hard to make.  Slice the eggs in half, leaving the whites intact.  Pull the yolks and mash them with some mayo, mustard, sweet pickles and salt & pepper to taste.  Put the spread back into the white and you're good to go.
  • Egg Salad - Probably the easiest thing to make.  Mash em up with mayo, pickles and maybe some celery.  Season to taste and you've got egg salad that goes great between slices of bread or toast.
  • Potato Salad - This is probably the most labor intensive things I've found.  Mostly because you have to peel, boil and chop the potatoes.  If you're not lazy, like me, go for it.
  • Pickled Eggs - This awesome idea was from Brenda.  Just put the eggs in a used up pickle jar that still contains the pickle juice.  Plop the eggs in and wait a couple weeks for it to soak in.
  • Target Practice?  It's Idaho.  Have at it.
