Dill Pickle Boiled Eggs

Ever tried to soak hard boiled eggs in leftover pickle brine?  If you haven’t hooooo baby are you in for a treat!

What do you do?  Hard boil some eggs….slip them into a pickle jar with brine…wait for at least 24 hours (I know it’s hard) and you have yourself a dill pickle flavour infused egg.

Seriously.  Try it.

My husband actually showed me how to make these simple tasty treats when we were dating.  The make a super good salad topper or meal accompaniment.

How to boil the perfect egg:

1. Place eggs in a pot.  Fill with cold water until they are covered with about 1 inch of water.

2. Heat on the stove to a rolling boil.

3. Turn off heat, put on lid and remove from heat.  Let sit for 20 minutes (set the timer).  When time is up, dump out water and fill with cold water, replacing it every minute until cooled.

4. Peel the eggs and rinse off with cool water.  Place eggs in pickle brine for a couple days or longer depending on your flavour preference.
