I love hard boiled eggs. I love them plain, with just a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I love them topped with a variety of toppings – mayonnaise, mustard, sour cream, salsa, or hot sauce. Obviously, I love them deviled (who doesn’t?).
I make a dozen hard boiled eggs at least once a week, so we can always have one or two if we’re hungry between meals.
My latest egg discovery: hard boiled eggs halved and fried in butter until golden-brown. They come out so delightful: warm and buttery, soft yet crispy. Fried hard boiled eggs make a perfect snack, a great breakfast, and they are also very good for lunch or dinner, as a salad topping.
- 2 hard-boiled eggs, halved lengthwise
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Pinch salt and pepper
- Place the butter in a small nonstick skillet. Heat over medium-high heat until melted.
- Add the egg halves. Fry until golden-brown, about 2 minutes per side. If the butter browns too much, reduce heat to medium.
- Season with salt and pepper and serve.
