7 Uses for Hard-Boiled Eggs That Don't Involve Egg Salad or Deviling
1. Turn them into a mimosa. No, I'm not talking about topping off your Champagne- and orange juice-filled flute with bits of yolk. Making this kind of mimosa involves pressing the hard-boiled egg through a sieve; then, you can use the tiny pieces to garnish vegetables or a salad.
2. Put them on BLTs. Cut across the egg, so you wind up with about 6 slices. (The rounds also wouldn't be bad on Oprah's Love Sandwich.)
3. Make a superfood sandwich. Nearly every ingredient in this whole grain delight is on O magazine's list of the best foods you can eat.
4. Pickle them. Try submerging the eggs in beet juice, which turns them pink--thus letting the coloring come full circle.
5. Sprinkle them with Provencal Herb Lemon Salt. This combination of sea salt and dried lavender, thyme, rosemary, basil and oregano gets a fresh burst from grated lemon zest.
6. Smoke them. BBQ guru Adam Perry Lang says putting hard-boiled eggs in a smoker for 45 minutes gives them a delicious and deep flavor.
7. Bake them into meatloaf. Start with your favorite recipe (here's Art Smith's). Spread half of the meat mixture into the pan, then lay two peeled hard-boiled eggs on top, end to end. Top with the remaining half of the meat and bake as usual. Each slice of the finished dish will have a perfect circle of egg in the center.
