What to do with leftover Easter eggs? Why not make some tasty egg salad sliders? They have two main ingredients – egg salad, and slider buns. I prefer to make my own slider buns, but you could certainly buy them already made. You could also use your own egg salad recipe, but you should try mine – it’s absolutely delicious!
