Three Healthy Hard-Boiled Egg Recipes for Picky Eaters

If holiday hard-boiled eggs fill your fridge, don't despair! We found several ways to turn these protein-packed ovals into three tasty and healthy meals even the pickiest eaters in your family will adore.

Egg Salad

Breakfast time is usually rushed in our home, so we prep egg salad the night before. Into chopped eggs, our kids add:

  • Onion
  • Bell pepper
  • Celery
  • Olives
  • Pickles
  • Chicken, shrimp, ham or bacon
  • Cheese
  • Spices and herbs like chives, curry, ginger or tarragon
  • Hot sauce
  • Low-fat or light mayonnaise, yogurt or salad dressing
  • Mustard
  • Avocado

In the morning, simply spread the customized egg salads on cucumbers, tortillas, crackers or whole grain toast for a healthy and filling breakfast on the go.

Dinner Salad

Big bowls of salad are easy to prepare and eat for lunch. On a bed of spinach greens, we toss a sliced hard-boiled egg and then let our kids pile on their favorite chopped veggies. A spritz of orange juice or light salad dressing finishes off the healthy and tasty appetizer your family will enjoy too.

Egg Pizzas

Before you wrinkle your nose at the idea of eating egg on a pizza, remember that hard-boiled eggs have a mild flavor, and boiling them firms their texture. We suggest you grab your favorite whole grain pizza crust, top it with your sauce, cheese, spices and a few egg slices. Broil your egg pizza and enjoy this fun and healthy dinner entree.
