Leftovers are the best part of any holiday celebration. For Easter, that means lots and lots of hard-boiled eggs (oh, and we have plenty of delicious ideas for what to with that leftover ham, too!). Coming up with easy, delicious ways to eat leftover hard-boiled eggs feels as much a part of the tradition as dyeing the eggs beforehand — or, at least, that’s how it goes most years.
