Leftover Hard Boiled Egg Recipe

Using Leftover Hard Boiled Eggs – Chicken Supreme Casserole

It is hard to imagine that, around the turn of the century, chicken was considered more of a luxury meat and was used mostly for special occasions unless you happened to live on a farm and raised your own chickens. Today chicken is considered an inexpensive staple in most homes and now costs even less than hamburger.

Coming up with different ways to use chicken can be a challenge. Here is a casserole that includes a couple of items you don’t always see in a chicken recipe, like the mayonnaise and hard boiled eggs. It does use items that most of us have on hand. Making this recipe is also a good way to use leftover rice, chicken and, of course, those leftover hard boiled eggs.

Hard Boiled Egg Recipe / Chicken Supreme

2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup rice, cooked
1 (4 oz.) can mushrooms
1 cup celery, diced
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. onion, chopped
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup Ritz crackers or corn flakes, crumbled
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Mix everything but the cracker crumbs and butter. Pour into a 2 quart greased baking dish. Mix cracker crumbs and butter and sprinkle on top of casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until heated through and bubbly.

More Tips for using Leftover Hard Boiled Eggs

Chopped up leftover hard boiled eggs can be used in so many ways:

  • Sprinkle them on salads (especially good on spinach salads).
  • Spread them on top of cream soups (like potato soup).
  • Use leftover hard boiled eggs in tuna salad, chicken salad or ham salad.
  • You can add almost anything to meatloaf too and that includes hard boiled eggs.
  • Leftover hard boiled eggs also make great breakfast burritos. I know we usually use scrambled eggs but once the eggs are mixed with everything else, no will know or care that the eggs are not scrambled.
  • Don’t freeze leftover hard boiled eggs. They can become very rubbery and taste nasty.

    This is very similar to a recipe I got from my grandmother. The only difference is that I put potato chips on top (and no butter). It sounds weird, but it is delicious. Definitely worth a try!

    This casserole is also very good using a diced ham and chicken combination, with potato chips on the top! Total comfort food, and was my brother’s FAVORITE food in the world.

      Thanks Beth for letting us know how you like it. I know when I try out new recipes I always like to read the reviews so I really appreciate it when our readers let us know when they like something.

    I see many casserole recipes use cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken soups. I don’t usually buy premade cans of soups. Is there a way to substitute that with something that would be as tasty but cheaper?

      You can make your own. We have a recipe for that in Dining but I didn’t know if that is what you wanted or not. Depending on the casserole you could make a white sauce with a little extra seasoning or flavoring like a bullion cube, cheese or something like that. Also many of them you could make a gravy (which is pretty much the same as the white sauce)to add to it. For example chicken gravy would be good in a chicken casserole, roast gravy would be good in a hamburger or some kind of beef gravy etc.
      Most casseroles you could not add the sauce at all but may need to add a little extra liquid to some. You can also do something like my chicken and noodles. I cook frozen noodles in the chicken broth I cooked the chicken in and usually it cooks down to almost a creamy like texture. Add any veggies you want and you have a stove top casserole.
