Hard boiled eggs

Having watched COOL HAND LUKE this evening and Boy, was he robbed of the Osocar . Other than egg salad and deviled eggs what else can we do with the versatile egg in its hard boiled form.

    1. Creamed eggs over toast - basic white sauce with a pinch of dry mustard and onion powder added - skip any nutmeg - slice eggs and stir into white sauce - serve over buttered toast.

        Or if you want to get all 1960s fancy, reserve the yolks, spoon the creamed egg whites over toast, then crumble the yolks on top for some color contrast. My mom called it "eggs a la goldenrod."

      2. Halved hard boiled eggs are delicious in crawfish etouffee or gumbo. Float 'em in during the last 10 minutes or so of cooking; the whites will absorb the flavor.

          I've seen them in turtle soup. I assume it absorbs the flavor of the soup as you said Celeste.

          1. Also delicious in ham, tuna, shrimp or chicken salad.

            1. I like them in spinach salads & green salads.
              Cobb Salad, Asparagus salad, etc, etc.

              I do not hard boil them, but medium/hard cook them. I like them still a little pliable.
