Cobb Salad

For a lighter take on cobb salad, try this fresh recipe [6]. Craving something a bit heartier? Go classic [7].

Asparagus With Grated Egg and Vinaigrette

Nope, that's not cheese on top of the asparagus. Grated egg lends richness to asparagus vinaigrette [8], a springy side.

Miso Soup With Vermicelli, Mushrooms, and Tofu

Halved or quartered hard-boiled eggs are pretty much always a welcome topper for Asian noodle soups [9].

Hard-Boiled Egg Toast With Cornichons

Get all the flavor of egg salad toast in an even speedier fashion with toast topped with hard-boiled eggs and cornichons [10].

Spinach Salad

Bacon appears not once but twice in this filling egg-topped spinach salad [11]: as a topping and in the warm bacon dressing.

Cobb Salad Wrap

Looking for a hard-boiled-egg-filled brown bag lunch? Look no further than this cobb salad wrap recipe [14].

Leeks Vinaigrette

While soft-boiled quail eggs are used in this oh-so-French recipe [15], leftover Easter eggs can be chopped and swapped in, no problem.

Cobb Pasta Salad

Make cobb pasta salad [17] for the next potluck you attend.

Hard-Boiled Eggs on Toast With Bagna Cauda
