Many Uses of Hard Boiled Eggs

Eggs are a great source of protein and are good to have in your diet. One of the way you can enjoy eggs is by hard boiling them.

Hard boiled eggs are usually eaten for breakfast. They can be enjoyed by themselves topped with mayo, dressing or your favorite sauce. There are many other ways to enjoy hard boiled eggs though.

Hard boiled eggs can be used in soups (such as Asian soups or the cold Borscht), salads, and even sandwiches but they can also be stuffed with your favorite ingredients, topped with caviar, or topped with tuna salad.

Eggs with Sandwiches

We are used to eating a sandwich with a pickle on the side. Another ingredient that will go great along with a sandwich is a hard boiled egg. I love eating the egg with a salami and melted cheese sandwich, along with slices of avocado on the side. It's very delicious... Any sandwich will do though.

When you hard boil an egg to go along with your sandwich you can do it two ways - have the yolk be completely firm or have parts of the yolk be slightly liquid. I like the second way the best. To achieve the consistency of the egg where part of the yolk is slightly liquid be sure to not cook the egg in boiling water for very long. I'd say no more than 5 minutes.

Eggs Stuffed with Mushrooms

I love to stuff the eggs with mushrooms.

To do this, first hard boil some eggs, and when done, cut them in half (vertically). Then carefully scoop out the yolk so as not to break the eggs and set aside on a plate. Next you will create the mushroom stuffing for the eggs.

Take a medium onion, peel of the skin, and cut into small pieces. Fry in a skillet over medium heat until golden brown. Remove onto a bowl when done. Then thoroughly wash the Portobello or Crimini mushrooms under running water and cut into small pieces. Heat a skillet over medium heat and fry the mushrooms for about ten minutes. Then add the fried onion, mix, and cook everything for five more minutes. When done place the mushrooms and onions, along with the yolk you scooped out from the boiled eggs, into a food processor for about a minute or so (using the knife setting). When done remove onto a bowl and mix with a tablespoon of mayonnaise. Once everything is mixed take a teaspoon of the contents from the bowl and place onto the egg halves. You are now ready to enjoy eggs stuffed with mushrooms.

This dish makes for a great, tasty appetizer. It can be eaten for breakfast too.

Eggs Topped with Caviar

To make eggs topped with caviar simply hard boil some eggs, soak in cold water for a few minutes, remove the shell, cut in half (vertically), and place some caviar on top of each half of the egg. Red caviar is usually used but you can also use black caviar or even caviar spread like the Greek Style caviar spread.

Eggs Topped with Tuna Salad

Hard boil some eggs and slice them in half (vertically) and set aside. Then prepare the tuna salad and place some of it on top of each egg halves.

When I make tuna salad I use a can of chunk light tuna (in water), a celery stalk, some onion, roasted sesame seeds, a dash of salt, dried parsley flakes, a teaspoon of oil, and a teaspoon of mayonnaise. If you like you can add other ingredients to the tuna salad as well.

Other Toppings for Hard Boiled Eggs

There are other toppings you can use with hard boiled eggs. Here is a list of some of these:

  • Mayonnaise
  • Hummus
  • Babaganush
  • Dips
  • Salad Dressings like Ranch, Blue Cheese...
  • Tiny bacon bits
  • Sautéed veggies
  • Grilled Portobello mushrooms
