If your house is like mine was as a kid....there are hard boiled colored eggs everywhere come the evening of Easter Sunday. There is that special time of dying the eggs with your kids, then there are all the egg hunts where more are collected (they used real eggs when I was a kid, do they still do that?). So you could end up with more eggs than you bargained for.
You hate to throw them away but you can only eat so many hard boiled eggs. So what else can you do?
Egg Salad sandwiches are a given but I love this recipe that takes it a step further. The recipe is from Whole Foods (so I'm sure it's healthy, ha). Curry powder is fabulous enough but then add in the crunch from the pistachios and a slight peppery flavor from the arugula and you have a variation of a classic.
Stuff it into a Pita instead of ordinary bread and YUM!
Here's what you need to know:
Curried Egg Salad with Arugula & Pistachios
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
- 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios
- salt and black pepper
- 2 cups baby arugula
- 1 pita
Mix together the mayonnaise, curry powder, and pistachios in large bowl. Peel eggs and chop. Combine with mayonnaise mixture. Toss well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Split the pita in half. Stuff some arugula inside each half, then spoon in egg salad.
Okay....I really have to try this next recipe. I love Egg McMuffins from that fast food establishment with the arches but I know they are so bad for you. These look better and much healthier.
English-Muffin Egg Pizzas
- 4 English muffins
- olive oil
- tomato slices
- 2 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
- grated mozzarella
- kosher salt
- Toast 8 English-muffin halves and place on a cookie sheet.
- Drizzle each with olive oil, then layer on tomato slices, hard-cooked egg slices (½ an egg each), and a little grated mozzarella. Sprinkle with oregano and kosher salt.
- Broil 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
SUPER EASY and it's a pizza for breakfast. Or lunch or dinner.
I hope that gives you some new ideas for all those easter eggs or that it inspires you to make your own variations. Have a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter!
