Easter Sunday. It comes and goes super quickly, and it’s the only holiday you’re left with random dyed eggs in your fridge. If you stuck the eggs in the fridge within two hours of hiding and hunting for your eggs, then the good news is you can eat them! Yep. Dyed easter eggs after egg hunt translates to egg-a-palooza for hard-boiled egg lovers.
What to do with your dyed Easter Eggs after Egg Hunt
If you haven’t stored them properly, throw them out. No need to chance it. But if you got them in the fridge quickly after your egg hunt, then check out how you can enjoy them.
Low Effort Options
- Peel, salt & pepper them and chow down any time of the day.
- Peel, salt & pepper, then slice them up to have along with toast and coffee (or tea/juice)
Medium Effort Options (use as an ingredient)
If you’re into salads, you can add a sliced, or chopped hard boiled egg to any salad. My favorite salad, because it combines meat (chicken is my preference), egg, cheese and greens: Cobb Salad. Depending on the dressing, a Cobb Salad will transform your life. One of the best Cobb Salad recipes, which also includes a phenomenal dressing, is a true classic! Since going all-organic, I can make this salad along with the dressing using all my updated organic ingredients, and it tastes even better. Cleaner. Richer.
Give it a go after your Easter celebrations. You can find The Best Classic Cobb Salad recipe on thekitchn.com.
Another favorite, which includes many of the same ingredients as my favorite Cobb Salad, is a BLT Chicken Salad. Find this salad treasure at tasteofhome.com.
Higher Effort Options
Gonna be honest, I’m not a huge deviled eggs girl. However, I know many people adore them and they’re the perfect way to use your dyed Easter Eggs! I’ve been told this Million Dollar Deviled Eggs recipe from SugarSpunRun.com is truly the bomb.

Unlike deviled eggs, I am a huge fan of egg salad. Sometimes I eat it with a fork, but oftentimes I enjoy a nice egg salad sandwich! My recipe isn’t anything exceptionally mind-blowing. However, it’s my own creation and it seems fitting to share it with all of you so you can use up those colored eggs after Easter comes and goes.
