Easter is coming up this weekend, which means eggs, eggs, and more eggs!

Cadbury Eggs, Twix Eggs (can’t wait to try these!), Reese’s Eggs…did you know they made Reese’s Eggs into ice cream bars?  Holy moly, they’re fantastic!

Oh yeah.  There are also actual eggs. Which I won’t have time to dye this year, because, well, I’ll be going to Disneyland.

Fair trade.

How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs

I used to boil them on the stovetop like my mom always did growing up, but if you have an Instant Pot, USE IT!

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs are super easy to peel, fast, easy, delicious, and the perfect high protein breakfast or snack for your weekly meal prep. 

This is how I make my Instant Pot hard boiled eggs.

You can make a ton at once (I’ve done 2 dozen at once and I could still fit more in) and it’s easy (as all hard boiled egg recipes are), but the best part about eggs made in the Instant Pot is how easy they are to peel!

How To Make Egg Salad

Egg salad is about as easy as it gets! Chop up your hard boiled eggs and mix them up with the flavors you love.

That’s all there is to it!

It’s my favorite time of year to make egg salad.  As a matter of fact, I rarely make egg salad the rest of the year.  I love the stuff, but for some reason it’s a Jesus-is-risen, spring-is-finally-here kind of food for me.

I use honey mustard in this egg salad because I’m not a huge fan of regular mustard and that little bit of added sweetness just puts this over the top for me.

I also added cheese…because almost everything is better with cheddar. 😉

And feel free to sub mayo for the Miracle Whip, but my mom is a Miracle Whip addict, so it’s just what tastes right to me in egg salad!

Eating the salad plain on a piece of lettuce was fantastic, but then I toasted a piece of Cheddar Herb Bread and added a sprinkle of paprika.

Win.
