Natural Easter EggsThere is an old joke that notes that Easter is followed by several days of egg salad sandwiches. Your family might be looking forward to enjoying one or two of these traditional ways to use up Easter eggs. After a while, though, it gets rather uninspiring. Here are several different recipes that include hardboiled eggs. Some will also help you to use up leftover ham.

Egg Salad Sandwiches
This type of sandwich is typically considered to be a treat on Easter and the day after. There is more than one way to make them. Martha Stewart has a recipe for “Martha’s Favorite Egg Salad Sandwich” that you can try. The recipe will make 6 sandwiches. It requires 10 hard-boiled egg whites and 2 hard-boiled egg yolks (to make it a little bit healthier).

Deviled Eggs
My sister-in-law makes awesome deviled eggs! I don’t happen to have her recipe, so I will refer you to Real Simple instead. Their recipe serves 8 people and uses up 12 large eggs. Serve them at Easter dinner, and you won’t end up with any leftovers!

Country Potato Salad
Eating Well has a great recipe for a picnic style potato salad. It will use up 2 large hardboiled eggs, and they suggest you use small, or heirloom, potatoes (if you can find them). The recipe also requires 2 ounces of smoked ham that has been sliced into strips. This is a good way to use up your leftover Easter eggs and some leftover ham from Easter dinner.

Food Network has a recipe called “Ed’s Mother’s Meatloaf” that comes from Nigella Lawson. It will feed a total of 7 to 8 people, and uses up 4 hardboiled eggs. I recommend you check out the photo on the Food Network page. It shows that the eggs are placed in the center of the meatloaf itself, so that each serving contains a nice, thick, slice of hardboiled egg.

Ham and Egg Salad Nests
Woman’s Day has a recipe that will help you to use up some leftover Easter eggs and some leftover ham. The recipe will serve a total of 8 people. You are going to need 8 frozen mini filo-dough shells (thawed). It also requires 4 ounces (or about 1 cup) of finely chopped smoked ham, and 3 large hardboiled (and finely chopped) eggs. Use this recipe when your family has grown tired of egg salad sandwiches.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
