Grilled Egg and Cheese Sandwich Recipe to Use Leftover Easter Eggs

Easter is a great time to teach kids one of those hands-on, life long cooking skills; how-to hard-boil an egg.

Every year at Easter we hard-boil eggs for decorating.  The question always remains, what do we do with a dozen to two dozen of leftover Easter eggs after we’ve decorated our hearts out with a gazillion different egg decorating options? 

Over the year’s we’ve simply peeled and eaten, we’ve made many different flavors of deviled eggs and thankfully, two out of my three kids love egg salad sandwiches. 

Now, we’ve added a little twist into our post Easter hard-boiled egg eating activities that the whole family loves.  It’s the Grilled Egg and Cheese Sandwich, which is great for a quick breakfast grab and go or for lunch.  Either way, we are glad to have one more recipe to use as we eat up all of our leftover Easter eggs.

Here is a printable version of the recipe version for your convenience;

This recipe yields one sandwich.


  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • 3 tablespoons Cabot sharp cheese, shredded
  • 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • PICS black pepper
  • PICS butter


    Peel the hard-boiled egg and slice it.

    Stir the dry mustard, paprika, a pinch of black pepper and the shredded cheese together.

    Lay the slices of egg on one slice of bread. Top the egg with the shredded cheese and spices.

    Add the other slice of bread on top to create a sandwich.

    Toast the sandwich in a grilled cheese fashion on a frying pan with a very thin coating of butter.

    Cook the sandwich over low heat on one side until it’s toasted, flip and cook the other side until it is also toasted.

    Be certain the cheese is fully melted before serving.
