Pickled Eggs Recipe

An easy to do pickled eggs recipe that my family has been making for years. An easy to make and tasty to eat pickled eggs recipe. | chatfieldcourt.comI wanted to share a recipe that our family has been making since I was a little girl, pickled eggs. They were always a staple at our family get togethers, no matter the occasion or season, and they were one of the most popular items on the buffet table. They are great with a little salt and pepper for a tasty snack or you could have them with sandwiches, burgers or a ham dinner (like we do at Christmas), plus they are super easy to make.

You will need is a large glass jar with a lid (or a glass bowl with a lid), a dozen or two of hard-boiled eggs, a jar of pickled beets (sliced or whole, whatever your preference is) and white vinegar. I won’t go into cooking your eggs because there is so much info on the internet already, different things work for different people. You could also add some sliced onion into your jar, there are no hard and fast rules.

Pickled Eggs Recipe

All you need to do is to put your peeled hard-boiled eggs and the pickled beets into the jar, fill it up with vinegar until the eggs are all covered and stick it in the fridge for about a week. The longer you leave them in the pickle juice, the more it will penetrate through and flavor the eggs. Some people say that you should stir them a few times, but I just leave them alone and they come out perfect.

Personally, I like them when the pickle juice has seeped into the egg to make it nice and pink all the way through. That’s it. Slice them in half, sprinkle with some salt and pepper and enjoy! Easy and yummy!!

    I found that funny, because I don’t like looking at hard boiled eggs but I wanted to see how you made it pink! Hehe If it’s pink I like it! This is still a cool idea, even though I don’t care for eating them! 😀

      Hi Heather. Your comment made me smile. I’m not thrilled about looking at them either, that’s why I gave the disclosure. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

    Grew-up with pickled eggs at Easter. Similar recipe but added a dash or two of tabasco to the jar along with a few hot peppers. My Dad had a rule they couldn’t be eaten for at least three days! He also boiled the beet juice with the vinegar and poured it over the eggs hot.
    I have since found a recipe for a quick pickle that just leaves a ring on the outer edge. You then cut the egg in half and devil the insides. Very pretty as well as tasty!

      Hi Randa. Thanks for the tips and ideas on how you’ve made pickled eggs. My husband especially liked the idea of boiling the beet juice and vinegar. I’m sure he will try doing that next time we make them. The idea to leave a quick ring and devil the insides sounds great. I would love to try that. I appreciate your visit.

    I used to love pickled beets when I was a kid, but I haven’t actually ever made them myself. Thanks for the memories. I think I’ll try them for Easter this year!

      Hi Pam. Isn’t it funny how certain things bring back childhood memories? I will be making them for Easter too (we always have them). I would love to hear what you think of them. Thanks for visiting.
