Recipes Using Leftover Hard-Boiled Eggs

Leftover boiled eggs aren't something we hear too much about anymore, especially in my family, because, well we eat them up! I know there are more folks who don't even boil real eggs for Easter anymore than there are who do, but for those of us who do still boil eggs, I've pulled together a round-up showing a few ways to use up those leftover boiled eggs!



First out of the gate, of course - Deviled Eggs!

Cold Marinated Asparagus Salad

Cold Marinated Asparagus Salad - Fresh asparagus, cooked to crisp tender, then marinated in an oil and vinegar seasoned dressing with pimentos, and finished with sliced grape tomatoes.

I am so happy to see that spring has arrived, though, much like the rest of the country, we had a bit of a cold snap to usher in the spring season. No snow in the south, but we did get temps down in the mid-30s, even here in south Mississippi. No worries though... won't be long before we'll all be complaining about the heat! My A/C has already been running full time, though truly, I never turned the central heat on one time this winter. The few cold snaps we did have were covered just fine by my little Duraflame fireplace heaters.

Nubby Fried Chicken Planks

Nubby Fried Chicken Planks - a grown up version of chicken tenders, served here with a homemade chicken gravy, quick fix green beans and a garden salad.

Fried Chicken Planks

What are chicken planks you ask? Well, they are simply chicken tenders for adults!

Seriously though, they are chicken tenders that are pounded thinner, which makes them more appropriate for a fancier fried chicken platform, such as those amazing restaurant copycat recipes, and they cook much faster than traditional chicken breasts, which are typically, well... in my humble opinion, otherwise tasteless! Because planks cook faster, they stay tender and delicious, and no brining is necessary. Yay!

Crispy Pan-Fried Catfish

Catfish fillets, breaded with seasoned flour and panko bread crumbs and pan fried - fast and easy and the perfect fish for sandwiches or tacos.

Crispy Pan-Fried Catfish

Fresh catfish is as common around here as ground beef is everywhere else, so we tend to eat a lot of it all year round and especially during Lent. Cut into strips and deep fried is the most popular way of course, though it's also excellent baked and even stewed, but whenever I prepare it as a whole fillet I like to prepare it pan-fried.

Dr. Weil's Steamed Broccoli

Broccoli, lightly steamed in water and olive oil with garlic and red pepper flakes. Toss with a bit of cooked penne or rigatoni for a nice light meal and finish with a sprinkle with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Dr. Weil's Steamed Broccoli

I love fresh broccoli, and the less you mess with it the better, far as I'm concerned, well... unless we're talking about batter-dipped and fried, which is an occasional, fun appetizer, not a side dish, y'all.
