Ingredients Needed

Eggs – Use hard-boiled eggs either homemade or buy some from the store for easier prep.

Corned beef – You can use any leftovers you might have or grab some from the deli.

Sauerkraut – I like a crisp kraut or use boiled cabbage if you have some. Keep some juice handy.

Dressing – 1000 Island dressing is perfect or substitute some Dijon mustard.

How long do they last?

Any leftovers will last in the fridge for up to 3 days. Be sure to store them in an airtight container.

Can I make them ahead of time?

You can hard boil the eggs ahead of time. And you can prep the filling up to 2 days in advance. Just be sure to fill the eggs right before serving for best results.

Do not freeze the egg whites. They will get rubbery.
