Hard-boiled eggs always seem to go to waste in my house.
It’s my own fault. When I think to make them, it somehow strikes me as silly to go to the trouble for just two or three eggs. And since it requires no more time or effort to boil up a dozen, I usually go that route, assuming the extra will make convenient snacks and meals for the next few days.
Except I quickly lose interest in them or forget about them, and they get relegated to the back of the refrigerator until they smell.
When I recently found myself with an abundance of hard-boiled eggs, I decided to be proactive and come up with a delicious way to use them right away. The result was a delicious egg salad that I spread on slabs of toasted baguette, then topped with thin slices of smoked salmon. I used it as an appetizer, but it was delicious enough to convert into a main meal.
The trick is to make the egg salad a bit in advance, even up to a day ahead. This allows the flavors in the dressing to really develop. And if you’re not a fan of smoked salmon, smoked trout, smoked shrimp or even just plain cooked shrimp would be a delicious substitute.
