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;
- 2 slices PICS whole grain bread (or your favorite)
- 1 PICS hardboiled egg
- ½ cup PICS shredded sharp cheese
- 1/8 teaspoon PICS ground mustard
- 1/8 teaspoon PICS salt
- 1/8 teaspoon PICS paprika
- 1/8 teaspoon PICS black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon PICS onion powder
- PICS butter
Peel the hardboiled egg and slice it.
Stir the ground mustard, salt, paprika, black pepper and onion powder together with the shredded cheese.
Sprinkle half of the cheese onto one slice of bread. Add the sliced egg pieces on top of that cheese and then add the rest of the cheese on top of the egg slices.
Melt a little bit of butter into a pan over medium to low heat. Add the sandwich and toast one side of the sandwich over low heat. Carefully flip the sandwich and toast the other side.
