This whimsically name dish is a great way to use hard-cooked eggs. It's a favorite at our house at Easter and all year-round.—Amy Church, Coatesville, Indiana

"This was a really good recipe, however the family is not big on broccoli so I replaced it with asparagus and that did the trick for us. It was really good, will make again!"

"I love this recipe, my husband likes it, but my kids are not crazy about it (because of the broccoli). Since I'm the only one who is wild about it, I only make it once a year - on Dr. Seuss's birthday."

"We enjoyed this dish very much - tho I would use just 1 tbsp. of dijon mustard next time - I also used a four cheese mix instead of cheddar, which was very tasty. As well, I used far less broccoli, more like 1 to 1 1/2 cups, but a bit more ham. Very nice dish."
