Hard-Boiled Egg Recipes?

I’ve searched various web sites for good recipes involving hard-boiled eggs but have had relatively little luck finding anything interesting. How do you guys eat your hard-boiled eggs? I recently figured out that tomatoes and avocados go pretty well with them. I’m particularly interested in ideas that don’t use milk or cheese, but feel free to post whatever you happen to enjoy. Thanks!

Sautee some tomatoes, onions and eggplant. That’s tasty with eggs.

hard boiled eggs are good in mixed with tuna

mixed with avocado to make egg salad

mixed with olive tapenade for an egg salad

sliced with lemon, basil on top of sardines

why hard boiled though? eggs are so versatile

is this due to a storage issue?

now that is something I have never tried before. I will have to give that a shot.

Egg Curry

Ingredients:

6 hard boiled eggs
5 tbsps coconut oil
2 medium sized onion cut into quarters
3 medium sized tomatoes cut into quarters
2 green chilis
2 tsps garlic paste
2 tsps ginger paste
2 tsps coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chili powder
Salt to taste

Preparation:
Heat 2 tbsps of the cooking oil in a deep pan and when hot, add the onions. Fry till slightly golden. Turn off the fire. Use a slotted spoon to remove the onions from the pan and put them in a food processor. Grind the onions, tomatoes, green chillies into a smooth paste. Try not to add water while grinding, if possible.

Heat the remaining oil in the same pan and add the paste you just made to it when it is hot. Fry for 2-3 minutes.
Add the ginger and garlic pastes, all the dry spices, mix and fry till the oil begins to separate from the masala (onion-tomato-spice mix).
Now add 2 cups of warm water to this masala and bring to a boil on a medium flame.

If adding potatoes to the curry, add them now and cook till half done.
Half slit the boiled eggs vertically and add them gently to the gravy. Simmer the flame and cook for 10 minutes or till the gravy is thickened/ reduced to about 3/4 of the original quantity (when you added the water). If you have added potatoes they should ideally be cooked by now.
Turn off the fire and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

Serve hot with rice and a vegetable side dish.

Um, deviled eggs?

Cut eggs in half long ways and take the yoke out. Mix the yoke with mustard, mayo, and possibly relish and maybe some seasoning. Put the mix back in the egg white half. I’m sure there are better recipes but that is basically what it is.

I already have some reliable options for scrambled eggs, but not so much for hard-boiled. However, the ideas in all the posts above look pretty good- thanks!

I like to cut them in half grind some black pepper and throw a little hot sauce and garlic powder on the hardboiled’s.

A bunch of hardboiled eggs
A lot of water

Bite, drink, swish, swallow… Repeat

Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half, and put some hot sauce (Frank’s Redhot is my favorite) on each. Makes them taste a lot better, with no added sugars or fats.
