To further your meal planning, read on to learn what we enjoy eating with hard-boiled eggs (and how long they last).
A hard-boiled egg is a great addition to a bowl of greens whether you're creating your own salad or trying to avoid paying by the pound at the salad bar. You only need to split the egg in half and mash the yolk with a fork to be ready to go. Consider preparing a prepared or chopped salad, such as a Niçoise or a Cobb, to let your egg shine.
Although eggs and toast go together naturally, don't worry if you don't have time to fry up a fresh egg for your toast. Sliced hard-boiled eggs can be added to avocado toast, toast that has been buttered, or, if you're feeling daring, toast that has been spread with almond butter. For added crunch, top with flax seeds or everything bagel seasoning.
In a rush? Add a hard-boiled egg to some ramen noodles to dress it up. If you don't feel like cutting it even the slightest bit, don't. The egg can also be cooked in the water used to boil the noodles if you don't have any hard-boiled eggs on hand; just place it in an ice bath before peeling.
To fit a hard-boiled egg in a sandwich, you don't always need to go full-on egg salad. In fact, a sliced hard-boiled egg offers a pleasant texture to any sandwich made between a baguette or pita, whether it is warm or cold. Slice the hard-boiled egg thinly and place it on top of the meat, cheese, grilled vegetables, or whatever else you like to sandwich between two slices of bread.
Oats Bowl Topping
A hard-boiled egg can be easily added to a bowl of oats or porridge to create a lunch that resembles leftovers. Cook half a cup of brown rice, barley, farro, quinoa, or whatever you want, top with any vegetables of your choice, and crack one or two hard-boiled eggs on top if you don't have any leftover foundation. Add tahini, spicy sauce, or any other dressing you choose. For a healthy dinner that travels well, this recipe is ideal.
If you prepare a large batch of hard-boiled eggs over the weekend, you can use them in salads, bowls of ramen, and a variety of other meals throughout the week. Hard-boiled eggs keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. A word of advice: To avoid accidentally cracking open a raw egg when you least expect it, label the hard-boiled eggs in your refrigerator (and add the date) with a sticker or a tiny dot from a non-toxic marker so you can easily distinguish between the two.
