I've got so many leftover Easter eggs in my fridge right now, and with the price of eggs you can't let those hardboiled, dyed, bundles of deliciousness go to waste. Thankfully LifeHacker had some suggestions for ways to eat those eggs other than straight up or as egg salad (which I already did for breakfast).
First up, fry them! Yes, you heard me right. Fry those hard boiled eggs in brown butter and watch as they transform into a deep, nutty delight. Perfect for salads, toasts, or just eating on their own. Just halve the egg, sprinkle a little salt, and fry them in a nonstick pan with a tablespoon of butter. Let them cook for a couple of minutes until they're browned and crispy on the edges. And whatever you do, don't flip them too much or you'll have a mini egg explosion on your hands!
If you're feeling a little more adventurous, wrap those hard boiled eggs in miso paste. This trick comes from the culinary genius Samin Nosrat, and I guess it's a game changer. Let the eggs marinate in the paste for a few hours and you'll have a deeply savory and slightly funky twist on the classic hard boiled egg.
Last but not least, make ramen eggs! These are so easy and so delicious. Just marinate your hard boiled eggs in a mixture of mirin, soy sauce, sake, and brown sugar, and let them sit in the fridge overnight. The result is a salty-sweet snack that's perfect for adding some protein to your bowl of ramen.
So there you have it. Some unexpected and exciting ways to consume those hard boiled eggs. Just don't forget to follow the safety rules, and don't eat the plastic kind. Happy Easter egg eating!
