Dyeing Easter eggs is a fun way to celebrate the holiday, whether you're going with simple solid colors or you're testing out an elaborate idea you found on Pinterest. The colorful eggs can make a great centerpiece for your Easter celebration, but there's just one problem with all that egg-dyeing fun — figuring out what to do with them afterward. Luckily, there are tons of ways to use leftover Easter eggs.

The simplest thing to do would probably be to just eat them as is for breakfast, but you can only eat so many plain hard-boiled eggs before you never want to lay eyes on them again. Fortunately, eggs are super versatile. They make a great topping or add-in to so many different dishes, which means even if you went a little overboard with how many eggs you colored, you can get through them pretty easily. Waste not, want not, right?

One thing you should remember, however, is that eggs won't stay good forever. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, eggs should be eaten within one week of cooking. You also shouldn't eat them if they've been out of the fridge for more than two hours.

If your eggs are good to go, here are 11 delicious ways to use them up.
