19 Boiled Egg Recipes To Use Up The Dyed Dozen Sitting In Your Fridge

You’ll have colorful meals all week.

There’s always so much ham left over after an Easter dinner, and a fair amount of side dishes, too. But chances are the feast you served isn’t the only thing clogging up your fridge come Monday. If you’re wondering how to use up Easter eggs you dyed this week, here are a bunch of delicious boiled egg recipes to get the job done (without feeling like egg overkill).

Of course, you can always scarf down all the Easter eggs by just peeling them and adding some salt and pepper, but that can get old quickly. Hard-boiled eggs are a surprisingly versatile ingredient, so why not use them as inspiration to plan your other meals this week? Besides, after spending so much time dyeing and marbling them to perfection, you should enjoy your colorful Easter eggs in lots of different meals this week. Ramen is good, but ramen with a rainbow egg on top? Or deviled eggs that look tie-dyed? Amazing.
