Coming up with new lunch recipes can be challenging at times. It is easy to get into a rut of just making a quick turkey or ham sandwich for lunch.

It is such a welcome change from a simple salad or meat sandwich.
Plus, we just made it through Easter. If you are anything like me, you are still a bit overwhelmed with all the left over boiled eggs! Here is a nice change that I bet you will enjoy!
If you don’t have time to make lunch the day of, make it the night before so it’s all ready to go!

More Leftover Eggs Recipes:
- 5 good quality eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of your favorite curry powder
- 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt
- 2 big pinches of salt
- 1/2 small onion finely chopped
- 1 small bunch of chives minced
- *optional: 1/2 medium apple chopped
- *optional: 1/4 cup of pecans toasted & chopped
Put the eggs into the empty pot and run enough cold water to cover the eggs by 1/2 inch.
Bring the eggs to a gentle boil.
Turn off the heat, cover the pot and allow the eggs to sit for exactly 7 minutes.
Grab a large bowl, add ice and cold water and have it ready.
After exactly 7 minutes, carefully pour the water out of the pot and place the eggs into the ice bath for about 3 minutes.
While you are waiting for the eggs to cook and cool, get a small bowl and add the yogurt, curry powder and salt. Mix it together.
Next, crack and peel each egg then place it in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the yogurt mixture, onions, and chives (add the optional ingredients during this step as well).
Mash the ingredients together with a fork, but not too much. You do want the egg salad to have texture.
If you need more moisture in your egg salad, add a little bit more yogurt, a little at a time, until it is the right consistency. Taste it and then adjust the flavor with a bit more salt if necessary.
