What to do when the Easter Bunny leaves too many Eggs

Dilemma,  the Easter Bunny left too many colored eggs.

When faced with colored eggs make egg salad.

Just throw a dill spear, celery, 4 eggs, light mayonnaise and mustard in a food processor and process away.

As you can see the dye the Bunny used seeped through the shell, silly rabbit.  It isn’t as noticeable once you run the processor.

Lighter Egg Salad

4 hard boiled eggs, peeled
1/2 stalk celery
1 dill pickle spear
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon spicy mustard
salt and pepper to taste
Chives and paprika to garnish

Put all ingredients but chives and paprika in a food processor and process until celery is small chunks, scrapping the bowl several times. Transfer to a covered container and top with chives and paprika.  Refrigerate until use. Spread on leftover rolls or on a bed of lettuce to serve.

Baked Eggs in Avacodo

image

Hubby was gone for the day and he hates Avacodo.  I love them and had one getting a bit soft.

I also have some cilantro in my herb bed making an appearance.  I don’t know why it is coming back after such a cold winter. Not from seed either because it is in a row. When it comes back from seed it usually comes up in patches.

Anyway on with the eggs.

I saw this idea on another blog and hate to say I don’t remember which one. It seemed so easy I didn’t think to bookmark.

It really wasn’t all that easy.

You need to remember to use very small eggs. You also should scoop a bit of the Avacodo out to make your hole a bit bigger. Don’t forget your salt and pepper.

The pan I baked them in is a mess from egg overflowing.

I baked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

They must have been good because I devoured both halves.
