It never fails! There are bound to be some Easter eggs that are still in the refrigerator after Easter is over. Next to them might be some leftover ham from Easter dinner. One way to make the leftovers more appealing is to turn them into something else. Here are a few recipes that will help you use up the Easter leftovers before they have to be tossed in the trash.
Simple Egg Salad Sandwich
Food.com has many versions of recipes for an egg salad sandwich. This one is really simple! You will need:
* 6 hard-boiled eggs
* 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
* 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
* 1 tablespoon of relish
* Some pepper (optional)
* Lettuce (optional)
* 6 slices of whole wheat bread (or whatever bread you prefer).
Finely chop the hard-boiled eggs. Put the pieces into a bowl. Mix in the mayonnaise 1 tablespoon at at time. Mix in the mustard, relish, and pepper. Put the egg salad mixture onto bread. It is suggested that you toast the bread first. Top the sandwich with lettuce. The entire process takes about 15 minutes.
Easy Ham and Noodles Recipe
This easy recipe came from Allrecipes.com. It is a nice alternative to adding your leftover ham into a casserole. This recipe makes 4 servings. You will need:
* 2 cups of egg noodles (cooked)
* 1 cup of ham (cubed and cooked)
* 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese (cubed)
* 1 can of condensed cream of mushroom soup (10.75 ounces)
* 1/2 can of milk (10.75 ounces)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Put the noodles, ham, cheese, soup, and milk into a 9×9 inch casserole dish. Mix it well. Bake it at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes. When it is done, put some of it onto plates. It will resemble a fancy pasta dinner like the type you would get at a restaurant. No one will know it came from a casserole dish!
Ways to Use up Leftover Chocolate
At some point, even your children will get tired of the chocolate mini-eggs, the M&Ms, and even the remaining portion of their chocolate bunnies. Cut up the pieces of leftover chocolate. The M&Ms don’t need to be cut up. Use your favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Use the leftover chocolate from Easter instead of a bag of mini chocolate chips. Who can resist homemade chocolate chip cookies?
