FOOD FUN: Guacamole Stuffed Eggs & Uses For Leftover Egg Yolks

Here’s a fun way to present stuffed eggs: as boats filled with guacamole and a tortilla chip or Wheat Thin “sail.”

But what to do with all those leftover cooked egg yolks?

  • Add to tuna salad, potato salad, pasta salads and other salads.
  • Add to a layered salad.
  • Crumble or grate atop green salads (especially spinach salad), or layer with a chef’s salad or Cobb salad.
  • Use as a garnish on cooked vegetables, potatoes, rice and other grains.
  • Use as a soup garnish.

  • Make salad dressing with sieved egg yolks. Here’s one recipe with mayonnaise, sour cream and Dijon mustard, and another recipe that includes chopped nuts and vegetables.
  • Make an “egg yolk salad” with green onions, frozen pea, gherkins, a mix of mayonnaise and Dijon mustard, and salt/pepper.
  • Make this soup “dumplings” recipe.
  • Feed birds. Several people said that their pet birds loved to eat hard-cooked egg yolks. If you don’t have a pet bird, or know someone who does, you can leave them out for the neighborhood birds.

    Stuffed eggs were a popular dish as far back as the Roman Empire. The term “deviled eggs” originated in 18th-century England.

    “Deviled” refers to the use of hot spices or condiments in a recipe—paprika, mustard, hot sauce, horseradish, chiles, etc.—all of which you can add to the guacamole.
