Easter is full of tradition, celebration, and festivities. A custom that has come to be associated with Easter is dying Easter eggs to not only symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus, but also the rebirth associated with springtime. Dying Easter eggs is fun for children and adults alike and the egg hunt is an exciting part of the celebration. But what do you do with all the leftover eggs?
After you have spent time cooking perfectly boiled eggs and decorating them, there are a variety of recipes to use the leftover eggs. Egg salad is always a favorite, but the best way to use leftover hard-boiled eggs is to make deviled eggs. Served cold as a side dish or appetizer, these are the perfect party food for your evening Easter dinner.
Coined “deviled” because of the spicy mustard ingredient that is often incorporated into the mayonnaise and yolks, deviled eggs have become a staple on Easter menus. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite recipes from the classic version to new takes on the traditional deviled egg.
