What do you do with leftover Easter Eggs?
Stephanie has some great Sugar Cookies that use leftover eggs and a few other great ideas that we will share on Showcase Minnesota on Monday April 5 at 9am on Kare 11. Join us. For a sneak preview check this out
1 c. unsalted butter
4 hard boiled egg yolks, mashed
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. lemon zest
½ tsp. salt
2 c. flour
Mix butter, eggs, and sugar until well combined. Beat in vanilla, zest, and salt. Fold in flour. Drop cookies from teaspoon onto sheets, bake at 350 until golden, about 10 minutes.
Potato and Egg Salad:
Boil Yukon gold potatoes in their jackets until tender. Drain; peel while still warm, cut into thick slices and toss with a little vinegar (I like sherry or rice vinegar, but it's really your choice). Let sit 30 minutes then toss with hard-boiled egg slices, finely chopped red onion, a little mayo, and a little mustard. If you like, jazz it up with some ham, shrimp or cooked chicken.
Rich and Creamy Salad Dressing:
Halve hard-boiled eggs and separate yolks and whites. Push yolks through a fine-meshed strainer. Whisk in olive oil, mustard, a touch of lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss with a hearty lettuce, such as romaine, and garnish with chopped egg whites. Variation: Combine sour cream, mustard, yolks, and mayonnaise for a creamy thick dressing.
Meatloaf with Eggs:
Put together your favorite meatloaf mixture. Pat half of it into a loaf pan, then make a trench lengthwise down the center and place a row of hard-boiled eggs in the trench. Top with remaining meatloaf mixture, patting it down to enclose the eggs and bake.
