I call this a summer soup because it’s served cold. It’s very refreshing to have chilled soup on a hot summer day. I can eat three bowls of this on a hungry stomach. (A mom who chases after a 1-year-old gets hungry ok?!) It’s relatively guilt free; no butter or oils required. Easy, cheap and healthy; that’s my kinda meal.
The addition of mushrooms and a flavorful dressing takes this egg salad over the top. It’s a great lunch option since it doesn’t require re-heating. We enjoyed this served as open-faced sandwiches with a pickle on the side.
This is an easy and tasty version of canapes with egg and chives – little tea sandwiches. If you have leftover eggs from Easter, whip 'em out and make these canapes. The laughing cow cheese works beautifully as an easy spread.
These leftover hard boiled egg recipes probably have you craving eggs ;). Here is a quick recipe on how to hard boil eggs. It’s our standard method and it works every time! Just be sure you use store-bought eggs. Eggs that are super fresh from the farm (or my Mom’s chicken coup), tend to peel with great difficulty unless you can let them stay refrigerated for a couple of weeks before using them, or try Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs for easier peeling.

I was told a short while ago that hard boiled eggs particularly very fresh ones as I have chickens that placing them in a jar and shake them the shells come off quite easily. That was told to me by my sister and I find it works a treat.
Thanks for sharing!
“Eggs are recommended in Federal dietary guidelines as a way to raise good (healthy) cholesterol levels.” That’s not what it says. (Eggs don’t raise your HDLs.) They just said replacing saturated fats with carbs wasn’t making you better off.
Hi Stacey, there are other reputable sources online that speak to eggs raising HDL’s. You might do a google search if you are curious to learn more.
I have always been disappointed with asymetrical eggs when making deviled eggs. I have discovered that if you stir the pot gently until the water comes to a boil, the yoke will stay basically centered in the egg.
Thanks for sharing that info with us!

My husband makes an amazing bread spread or dip that’s super easy with leftover eggs that I can’t get enough of.
In a blender he adds precisely:
4 cans of tuna (with water)
One large onion (chopped up at least in fourths)
1 cup mayo (or half of mayo half of sour cream)
6-8 eggs depending on thickness
So good! Makes a large serving though so maybe divide that by half 😉
I love the idea of making a tuna-salad-like spread. That is genius! Thank you for sharing!! 🙂 It sounds like it would hang out nicely in the fridge for a few days for work lunches 🙂
I have serious problems eating & this sounds like an answer to what to have for dinner, thank you so much for sharing. Need to go make some 🥚🥚🥚 lol!
My pleasure Fay!
