Introduction: What to Do With an Expired Easter (real) Egg, Seriously?
Throw away into the dumpster?
give it back to Easter Bunny?

Real eggs contain minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and zinc.
So, I gave it a good burial.

Step 1: The Site
I chose a good burial site, e.g. next to a tree.
I dig a hole near the base of the tree. The depth of the hole is at least 6 inches, and the width is enough to fit am egg. Then, I put the egg a the base of the hole, and cover up with earth.
The egg will rot away in the ground, and acts as a organic fertilizer for the plant (e.g. calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc etc)
Step 2: The Other Site
I also buried the egg in a planting pot, or...
Step 3: The Grand Burial
If I have a batch of eggs, I buried a few in a large pot, and plant some tree in it.
It has solved my problem. You should give it a try too.
