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.


Brown Sauces

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.


Hot Sauce

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.


Truffle Oil

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.


Apple-Cider Vinegar

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.
