How many Easter eggs will your family decorate this year? A dozen? More? By the time the last Easter basket is emptied on Sunday, and the official haul is counted, you could be looking at a fridge full of rainbow-colored hard-boiled eggs. How will you eat them all?

The easiest option is to peel and eat them with a sprinkle of salt or a few drops of balsamic vinegar or Tabasco. But there are only so many times you can snack on a plain egg before you get tired of them (and, again, you’ll have how many dozens?). Try these recipes to dress up hard-boiled eggs so your taste buds don’t get bored. And, if you haven’t yet dyed them, here’s a primer on exactly how to cook hard boiled eggs so they peel easily and taste great.
