Episode 1: You have just about managed to drag yourself home after an unimaginably long day at work, and all you want to do is put your feet up, a glass of wine in one hand and a book in the other. Just as you're about to uncork the bottle, your phone rings. You let the answering machine get it, only to hear that you've got a bunch of people coming over and all you've got in your refrigerator are eggs!
Episode 2: You had a strong mug of coffee at around 5 in the evening that's keeping you awake much longer than you would have liked, and you're craving something with just the right amount of bite and sourness to it.
Episode 3: You are as tired as a one-armed paper hanger. All you want is to be able to throw whatever ingredients you have, in your refrigerator, together and whip up the quickest meal possible.
Clueless? Well, here are 5 simple ways to create a sumptuous, delightful meal using hard boiled eggs:
1. Deviled eggs
Slice the eggs lengthwise, placing the yolks in a bowl and the whites on a serving platter. Using a fork, mash the yolks to form a fine crumble, adding in mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and black pepper. Add this mixture into each egg white and you've got yourself a bite sized, mouthful of wonder.
2. Egg on English Muffin
Looking for a simple alternative to the sinful pizza? Look no further. English muffin-egg pizzas have got you covered. Over halved muffins, place sliced tomatoes and hard boiled eggs, topping them with grated cheese and broiling until they are toasted and oozing with the gooey flow of cheese.
3. Egg Chaat
For just the right balance of sweet, sour and spice to satisfy those midnight cravings, mix tomato sauce, chilli sauce, tamarind extract, lemon juice, roasted cumin, green chilli and salt, together. Slather this over your halved eggs, garnish it with coriander and you're good to go.
4. Egg with Shrimp salad
Looking for a way to cool down on a hot summer day? This should do the trick!
In a large bowl, combine shrimp, celery, onion, radish and quartered eggs; in another bowl mix together mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper, forming a smooth paste. Throw it all together with your cooked pasta, refrigerate it for 2 hours, and dive straight in.
5. Egg salad
For a quick fix on a lazy Sunday afternoon, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, chopped onions, salt and pepper, with cut boiled eggs and celery. Cover and refrigerate for some indulgent, taste bud tingling goodness.
