How to Use Your Eggs

With your rejuvenated eggs you can make delicious recipes, add them to salads, or just enjoy them on their own.

Egg salad is a respectable choice but just make sure not to freeze it.  Because of consistency and its ingredients, freezing egg salad isn’t the best idea.  

Adding your eggs to a green salad is a wonderful way to add protein to your already healthy veggies.  Chop up a carrot, a cucumber and toss with lettuce greens and your chopped eggs (and even to make it a cobb!) and there you have it!  

It’s Worth It

Your eggs are worth saving.  They are packed with nutrients and some might consider them the perfect food.  There are so many other ways to use your refreshed hard-boiled eggs.
