How to use Leftover Easter Eggs
After dying eggs for Easter, we’re always left with a bunch of extra hardboiled eggs. And you can only eat so many eggs with salt and pepper or turned into deviled eggs… Family Fresh Meals shared some great ideas on how to use leftover eggs that we’re excited to try this year.

There’s nothing worse than trying to peel an egg and having it get all torn up, or peeling it just to find out the center is under or over cooked. This method results in the perfect hardboiled egg every time!
Perfect Hardboiled Eggs
- 6 eggs
- Place the eggs in a pan and cover with water.
- Bring the water to a boil and then turn the heat to low. Allow to simmer for 13 minutes.
- Carefully pour the eggs into ice water and allow to cool slightly before peeling.
