A Recipe for Easter Egg Salad Cups … Made with Easter Leftovers

The beauty of working at Janice’s house — which we do most Tuesdays — is that we get to cook as we work … and work as we cook. Today, we took advantage of Janice’s Easter leftovers by creating this better-for-you egg salad recipe. We used two classic Easter ingredients: spiral cut ham and hard-cooked eggs. (Check out our How To Hard Cook Eggs tutorial.)

A few simple ingredients come together quickly for this family-pleasing Easter leftover lunch.

The presentation possibilities for our Easter egg salad are endless. You can serve in Bibb lettuce cups if you don’t have Romaine, place in a whole grain pita pocket or inside slider buns, or as the topping for a Cobb-style salad.
