Between aunts, uncles, grandmas, grandpas....everyone dyed Easter eggs with the grandchildren. My refrigerator is filled with egg cartons of dyed eggs. Does anyone have good ideas what to do with or make with lots of hard boiled eggs?

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

My family always had Eggs ala Goldenrod for special breakfasts.

Eggs ala Goldenrod

8 slices toasted bread.
8 hard boiled eggs

Make a basic White Sauce (béchamel):
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cup milk

Melt butter and whisk in flour and salt until smooth. Cook the flour/butter mixture over low heat for 2 – 3 minutes to help reduce the flour flavor. Gradually (slowly) stir in cold milk, stirring constantly until sauce boils; reduce heat and continue to stir until sauce becomes smooth and thick.
Add the chopped egg whites to the white sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Place the buttered toast on a plate and evenly distribute the white sauce/egg white mixture on top of the toast. Now crumble the boiled egg yolks and sprinkle.

Some people like Deviled Eggs, which are quick, easy and festive looking.

The verb, to devil, defined as such:

Take off the shells & wash the eggs off, cut them in half lengthwise. Put the yolks in a bowl and the half pieces on a plate or tray, open side up.

Then you smoosh up the yolks along with some mayonnaise, a little mustard, some pickle relish. You could also put other stuff in there, I imagine. Mound the yolks on top of the white-halves and sprinkle the tops with paprika, or chopped chives, or some kind of thing to give it a little color, and a bit of flavor.

At this point you are done with deviling the eggs, and could serve them immediately or cover and refrigerate them for a few hours.

I know this is blasphemy, but I used to just throw them out (starving children, I know).

For some reason, I'm not a fan of hard boiled eggs once they are cold (I do like them just cooked though).

I'd be inclined to make some egg salad and be done with it.

Why revive a six year old thread to give a recipe that most Southerners learned at their Momma's knee and eat at every holiday, church dinner, funeral and picnic?
