We're guessing you made a lot of hard-boiled eggs this weekend. This week, you'll serve them in various dinners throughout the week (none of which include egg salad, we promise).

And if you ended up throwing all of your eggs out after Sunday's egg hunt, we have a new way to hard-boil a lot of them at once: by steaming them instead. (That’s right, we said steam them—stick with us here!)

Some of those eggs will be served on top of Italian-ish polenta bowls, and others will add extra protein to a quick-and-easy ramen. The rest of the week you'll welcome spring in a big way, with a deconstructed chicken Caesar, crowd-pleasing quesadillas, and a white pizza topped with seasonal vegetables.

What's Going Wrong With Your Hard-Boiled Eggs They're easy, but you can still make mistakes. Here's how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs every time.

  • 8 oz. prosciutto
  • 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

MONDAY: Polenta Bowls with Prosciutto, Avocado, Arugula, and Pesto

You’re only cooking two things tonight: Oven polenta (skip the mushrooms in that recipe) will permanently dispel your fear of constant stirring. Get it going right away, and then move to making a big batch of hard-boiled eggs. Two dozen eggs will give you enough to top this evening’s bowls plus Wednesday’s easy ramen—and still leave plenty for breakfasts, lunches, or snacks. Once both items are under way, slice the avocado and wash the arugula. Finish making the polenta before peeling the eggs, since a little extra time in the shell won’t hurt them. To serve, fill bowls with polenta and set out halved eggs, the avocado and arugula, prosciutto, and pesto. Let everyone top their own. Refrigerate the remaining eggs.

TUESDAY: Deconstructed Chicken Caesar Salad

If you’re dealing with picky eaters, breaking down a Caesar salad into its elements guarantees a happy dinnertime. And since it’s ready in about 20 minutes, you’ll be happy, too. Tonight you’re doubling the chicken—leave the second batch simply seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper—to provide a head-start on Thursday’s meal. Refrigerate it after dinner, along with the rest of the recipe’s lemon, tightly wrapped—you’ll need that for Friday.

WEDNESDAY: Quick Pork Ramen with Carrots, Zucchini, and Bok Choy

Tonight’s dinner is an easy, springy take on a family favorite: ramen. And it uses more of those hard-boiled eggs, in place of the soft-boiled ones called for in the recipe. Got kids who don’t like spicy food? Skip the Sriracha in the broth, and just pass it at the table. And if you like, you can serve this the same way you did Monday’s polenta—give each person a bowl of noodles and soup, and let them add bok choy, carrot, zucchini, egg, basil, scallions, sesame oil, and hot sauce.

THURSDAY: Chicken and Mushroom Quesadillas with Carrot and Mango Slaw

These quesadillas are made with the simply-seasoned chicken you roasted on Tuesday, so you’ll only need to roast the mushrooms and spinach tonight. While they’re cooking, slice the chicken, make the yogurt sauce, and assemble the slaw. Once the vegetables come out of the oven, you’ll be ready to fill the tortillas, brown the quesadillas, and serve.

FRIDAY: White Pizza with Shaved Vegetables and Pesto

A spring vegetable–topped pizza uses more of Monday’s pesto—and zest from Tuesday’s lemon—in its cheesy base. If your kids aren't into any of the varied green toppings, you can easily leave them off a quadrant of the crust, or make individual pizzas and let each family member add their own toppings.
