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.
