Spice up your boring hard-boiled eggs for a tasty treat, dress them up for your taste buds and create a not-so-boring snack or addition to your morning breakfast by adding condiments. From mild to hot, or savory to sweet, there's a condiment you can use to make your eggs more tasty. Combine spices and herbs to complete a brand new, mouthwatering boiled egg that is sure to please any foodie and may be the next big thing added to you dinner-party appetizer menu.
Spread creamy mayonnaise onto a hard-boiled egg, then salt and pepper to taste. Or hollow out the hard, yellow yolk and mix in a bowl with 3 tsp. of mayonnaise, then fill the center back in with the mix and top it with paprika for a devilish-style snack.
Spice up eggs for a tangy treat by spreading yellow or granary mustard onto a halved, hard-boiled egg. Use just a small squeeze, or if you love mustard, spread it on heavily with a knife. Add a dash of black pepper for extra spice.
Give your hard-boiled eggs an English twist with the combined flavors of anchovies, shallots, garlic, soy sauce, tamarind, salt and vinegar by dipping them in the dark-brown fermented favorite Worcestershire sauce. Or add a dash of plain soy sauce to hard-boiled eggs for a taste of Asia. Top the egg with sesame seeds for extra Asian fusion.
Spice up hard boiled eggs with hot sauce. Try habenero, green chili or even salsa verde for an authentic Southwestern-style flare. Sprinkle red pepper flakes or jalapeno slices for extra-hot eggs.
Drizzle hard-boiled eggs with truffle oil for a mild, savory flavor of mushrooms for a protein power snack. Truffle oil is a high-quality olive oil infused with either white or black truffle mushrooms that presents an earthy mushroom flavor; it is meant to be drizzled on food and not used to cook.
Pickle your hard-boiled eggs with a dash or spoonful of apple-cider vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste for a quick-and-easy pickled egg.
Whip up a sour cream treat by topping hard-boiled eggs with sour cream. Then, dash with cracked black pepper and chives to taste.
