Hard-Boiled Egg Casserole

Make sure to include this easy dish on your menu—it’s a great way to use up leftover hard-cooked eggs. My casserole is perfect for fixing up the night before, if you leave off the potato chips. Right before you put it in the oven, sprinkle the chips on top.—Mavis McBride, Mesa, Arizona

    I wish I had made this recipe without baking. I tasted the mix cold (without the cheese and potato chip topping) and it was very nice. A crunchy egg salad that's just a bit different. Salty and tangy, especially after I added a bit more salt to taste and bit of mustard. But then I baked it and it turned dry and nearly flavorless. We're going to eat it because we don't like to waste, but I wish I hadn't baked it. I know I used plenty mayo, so it should have stayed moist.

    hUbby loves this but just with potato chips. We buy a huge bag and by the end there are lots of potato pieces to add to the eggs. I like them the way the recipe is but he doesn't.Instead of salt, I recommend celery salt or seasoning salt.

    I liked a lot. Hubby not so much. Will make it again.... probably for myself. I halved the recipe since it's just for two.

    Made this the day I got the email. Did not measure ingredients I guesstimated and it was still Delicious. Like a warm deviled egg with a little crunch. My only substitution was crispy bacon for the potato chips as we are trying to cut back on white carbs. Will make this many more times. The walnuts were a nice surprise.

    I will make this recipe this coming Sunday. It sounds too tasty (and easy) to wait for Easter before I try it!
