11 Perfect Uses for Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard boiled eggs are a staple in my house. I make a large batch at the beginning of every week because they are a great grab for a snack or make the perfect meal protein option when I’m too busy to cook.

The nutrition in a single egg is amazing. An egg contains approximately 6g of protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, phosphorus and riboflavin. In addition to that the fats in eggs are actually quite good for you despite contrary beliefs that are extremely outdated.

So, let’s dive in for some delicious ways to prepare a hard boiled egg.

#1 Eggs and Hot Sauce

I love hot sauce. I put it on anything I can. For an easy snack you can pack a hardboiled egg, some sliced carrots and celery, and of course a bit of hot sauce. Dip the egg in the hot sauce and enjoy. The veggies can go in the hot sauce too. Yum.

#2 Smoothie with Egg

I cannot do raw egg in a smoothie. Try as I might the mental thought of eating a raw egg gags me. Yuck. (We all have our thing.) This is a great option to add protein in without having to use a raw egg. Add berries, egg, almond milk, and if you like, maca to the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Breakfast is served!

#3 Egg Casserole

You don’t need raw eggs to make an egg casserole. Combine sliced hard boiled eggs with all the veggies and spices you like and heat covered until the hardest veggies are tender. This is a great premade meal that the family can throw in the oven when you have to work late.

 #4 Tuna, Egg, and Avocado Salad

Combine seared tuna, diced avocado, and crushed egg with a bit of lime juice and sea salt. It’s a delicious snack or lunch option. If you want to get really fancy you can make ceviche the night before with the tuna and use that instead of seared tuna.

#5 Oatmeal with Egg

Stay with me here, I know this is the craziest one yet. Oatmeal is a easy breakfast food and we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but where’s the protein. Easily remedy the problem by slicing an egg on top. Not only is it delicious and pairs well with a bit of cinnamon and honey, but you’ll have the protein you need to stay satiated all morning.

#6 Avocado Deviled Egg

These take a bit of time but it’s well worth it. Instead of making deviled eggs as you normally would with mayo, sub avocado. Not only does it add the delicious avocado flavor, but it has the healthy fats that combined with the egg are a brain boosting power house.

#7 Egg Salad

Ok, this is a basic stand-by and everyone likes egg salad. You can make it healthier by using olive oil instead of mayo. Add a few chopped veggies and you have the perfect topping for a salad or dip for snacks. I love double duty recipes.

 #8 Sweet Potato with Egg

Sweet potatoes are an easy meal option, but where’s the protein? Well a hard boiled egg sliced on top, of course. A drizzle of olive oil and spices and your set to go.

#9 Egg Dip

Add a couple of hard boiled eggs to the food processor. Add about 1/4 cup of pre-cooked beans a teaspoon of olive oil and any spices you like. Puree it until smooth. You can use this as a spread on sandwiches, a dip for veggies or even a salad dressing if you thin it out with a bit of lemon juice.

#10 Egg Burger

This one’s a fun surprise to make for breakfast. Mix a crushed heard boiled egg in with some turkey. Add some italian seasoning and form into a pattie. Cook as you would a regular turkey burger. You can make it extra delicious by serving it over greens with hot sauce.

#11 Egg on Egg

It’s a texture thing. If you normally make fried eggs in the morning try making only one fried. After the egg is cooked and you are about to serve it sprinkle a crushed hard boiled egg that’s been mixed with chopped cilantro and peppers on top. It’s a great way to shake up boring old eggs.

No matter how you take your eggs the hard boiled is a must have on hand. The perfect hard boiled egg is key. If you don’t already know how to make a perfect hard boiled egg check out Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs.
