So Easter is coming up, so what will you do with all that leftover booty? You know – the eggs, the candies, the marshmallowy Peeps?
Of course there will be egg salad sandwiches for days BUT let’s get creative with it! How about adding in chopped bacon or some sassy curry. Try mixing salsa in your favorite egg salad recipe then rolling it up with some avocados in tortillas for a quick breakfast on the go.
For a beautiful spring presentation, you can do a quick beet pickle. Soak shelled-hard cooked eggs in a sweet & tart beet juice marinade. Then cut and fill. Beautiful and d’lish!
Beet’ing Heart Deviled Eggs!Now, what do you do with that candy after the hunt? Well I’ve got you covered with my recipe for Peep & Jelly-Bean Rice Crispy Tweeps – a fun and festive twist on the beloved rice crispy treats. And yes you can garnish with the peep heads…
Save the Peep Heads for GarnishSo hop to it and have a Happy Easter! –Kathy
