15 Creative Uses For Hard-Boiled Eggs
Pickle Them
Pickle hard-boiled eggs — whether it be in beet juice, allspice berries, herbs, or something else — to lend them a unique tang for your salads.
Just remember that whichever main ingredient you choose
for your pickling, you also need to include vinegar and sugar,
as these are the additions that
do the pickling.
Fry Them
A fried boiled egg is an egg that has already been hard-boiled and is then fried in searing hot oil. You can even deep-fry them.
To deep-fry hard-boiled eggs, dab them until dry and dredge them in flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs, in that order. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before deep-frying.
Shape Them
A tool available on Amazon allows you to hard-boil eggs while the yolk takes on shapes, like hearts or stars. This trick can do a lot for presentation.
Those who don't have the device but still want something cute can make their hard-boiled eggs the old-fashioned way and cut out fun shapes with a cookie cutter.
Stuff Them
A Kenyan dish named mayai pasua calls for hard-boiled eggs stuffed with kachumbari,
a salad combining fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro,
and lemon juice.
To make the salad, be sure to chop everything finely, as the center of an egg is a pretty small space. You can top this with hot sauce for a good kick.
Put Them On Pizza
A pizza à Portuguesa from Brazil calls for slices of hard-boiled eggs, fresh tomatoes, sausage chunks, ham, onions, peppers, and olives.
When making it at home, be sure to put the hard-boiled egg slices on the pizza only after it comes out of the oven, or they might end up overcooked.
