Recipe for Pickled Eggs?

We have a small flock of urban chickens and have lots and lots of great eggs. I've made the picked egg recipe that Cressant Dragonwagon has in "The Passionate Vegetarian." It's good, but I'd like to try another. Any favorite pickeled egg recipes?

  1. I don't have a recipe but I love those eggs that are in the same jar with the pickled beets. I guess you just throw the hard cooked eggs in with the beets. I love the pink color of those eggs!

    1. This is my family's PA Dutch Pickled Red Beet Eggs recipe:

      Take a 15 oz can of beets (I like the baby beets, but you can use sliced too). Drain the juice into a saucepan. Add 1/4 c sugar and 1/2 cup white vinegar to beet juice and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes.
      Place the drained beets and a dozen shelled, hard-boiled eggs into a large container that seals up air tight.
      Pour the hot juice mixture over the eggs and beets, making sure they are all covered. Seal up jar or container and refrigerate. Let marinate for 1 day before serving.

      1. Here ya go...Jim's Recipe:
        • 4 cups cider vinegar
        • 1 cup water
        • 3 bay leaves
        • 1 tsp minced garlic
        • 1/2 tsp pickling spice
        • 2 tsp black pepper
        • 1/2 tsp parsley flakes
        • 1/2 tsp paprika
        • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
        • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
        • 1 tbs salt
        • 4 tbs hot pepper sauce*
        • 1 dozen hard boiled eggs, peeled
        Bring vinegar and water to boil in saucepan. Cool
        Add remaining ingredients, cover and refrigerate 24 to 36 hours. Keeps up to 3 weeks refrigerated. Makes 1 dozen eggs.
        * Any kind of hot pepper sauce can be used, depending on taste. Additional eggs can be aded to brine.

        1. I have been making this recipe for 20+ years and it is always a hit with those who loved pickled eggs. Makes my mouth water just to think of them!

            Thanks everyone. This is a HUGE help.

            1. re: Kaisgraham

              Kaisgraham, yours has got to be one of the best recipes I've ever seen for pickled eggs. It beats my recipe all to hell. Here's mine:
              Buy a large jar of bread-and-butter pickles. Eat the pickles over a period of about a week. : ) Boil a dozen eggs and toss into the pickle brine and let sit at least two days. I do the same thing with a jar of pickled beets, too.

            2. 1 Can of whole beets,
              Juice from the beets
              1 Cup cider vinegar
              1 Cup water
              1T sugar
              1T pickling spices wraped in cheese cloth
              2 medium sized bay leaves
              2 whole jalapenos sliced if you want spicy 5 whole
              2 large cloves of garlic sliced into 4s
              1 whole large white onion sliced thin into half rings
              2 tsp juice from the jalapeno jar
              12 eggs boiled - for 10 minutes and then iced. then peeled

              boil all the liquids with the bay leaves and the pickling spices for 5 mintues
              then to a steril jar - 1 gallon glass if you can find it. (Target has perfect cracker jars)
              Add the eggs and pour the hot liquid and the spices into the jar, along with the beets.
              Store overnight. They should be ready the next day.
