Recipes Using Hard Boiled Eggs

Here are some creative ideas of what to do with leftover hard boiled eggs that are more unusual than egg salad or deviled eggs.

Rocket Potatoes

Well, this a fattening but scrumptious recipe my Hungarian husband brought with him which we call Rocket Potatoes (because the Hungarian sounds something like that!):


Boil 4 large, peeled potatoes until done, then slice in thin-ish slices (I've also used baked potatoes successfully!). Slice about 8 hardboiled eggs. Slice about 6-8 hot dogs (kosher are best!). Mix paprika into a 16 oz container of sour cream until the sour cream is pink. Cover the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking dish with bacon. Start layering potatoes, then eggs, then hot dogs, and a smear of sour cream until you end with potatoes and enough sour cream to smear on that. Layer another 1/4 pound of bacon on the very top and bake for about an hour at 350 degrees F, uncovered.

This is a "can't go wrong" recipe, artery clogging but delicious!

Use In Potato Salad

I make up a nice potato salad with the leftover hard boiled eggs.

Three Different Uses

Have you ever tried mashing them with boiled potatoes? Another thing that you can do is make some toast, lay sliced tomato on the toast, then put sliced egg on top of that. Put on some basil leaves and cover that with cheese, put under the grill until cheese is melted. Or you could crumble the egg into white sauce with some parsley.

Add To Caesar Salad

When making a Caesar salad, I often throw in sliced mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, croutons, bacon and pieces of hard boiled egg. We really enjoy it that way.

Egg Salad

I make egg salad, like for a sandwich, then put it on celery stalks. I also make hard boiled eggs diced fine, add sweet onion, diced celery and a 6 oz can of tuna drained and Miracle Whip for sandwiches.

Spanish Eggs And Potatoes

This is a Spanish recipe. Not sure the quantity but you can gauge it easily.

  • Boiled Potatoes
  • Tuna (drained) preferably solid or chunk white
  • Boiled eggs
  • Sliced raw onions
  • Salt to taste
  • Olive Oil (a good amount)

Makes a nice lighter lunch. Good for Friday during Lent, too!

Recipes Using Hard Boiled Eggs

I have used this recipe for many, many years. It is simply a white sauce with hard-boiled eggs, but my family can use up 2 dozen eggs very easily. In fact, this is a family favorite year round. We sprinkle on Parmesan cheese for extra added flavor. Makes it really great!


Creamed Eggs On Toast

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/8 tsp. ground white pepper, if desired
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place egg in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.

  2. Melt butter in saucepan, add flour until it forms into a ball. Slowly add the milk and stir until the sauce comes to a boil.

  3. Stir the white pepper, salt, black pepper, and chopped eggs into the sauce; stir until the eggs are heated.

Recipes Using Hard Boiled Eggs

I make sandwiches using a hardboiled egg, mayo, salt pepper, onion powder, and English muffins. I toast the muffin, peel and slice the egg thinly with my egg slicer. Then when the muffin is toasted, I spread it with mayo and sprinkle it with salt, pepper, and onion powder, Yummy! I got the idea from Reading Sue Grafton novels, the heroine Kinsey Milhone makes them for herself. (04/04/2007)

Recipes Using Hard Boiled Eggs

My grown up children and their spouses and children all love pickled eggs. Boil the eggs and peel. mix one cup water, one half cup sugar, one cup white vinegar and a teaspoon pickling spice. boil for 5 min. pour over eggs. cover and keep in refrigerator for week or longer. Ours never last even 2 days for a dozen. (04/29/2007)

Recipes Using Hard Boiled Eggs

I put hard boiled eggs in my Tuna Salad (helps 'dress' it up and makes a good filler to helps make more servings). As well, as in my Potato Salad (a nice touch, adds to flavor, helps 'dress' it up). Make Dressed or Deviled Eggs with them (depends where you're from as to what you call them.) (08/14/2008)
