Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) about Spicy Bar Pickled Eggs Recipe

How Do You Use Pickled Eggs? 

You can eat the eggs like a snack, right out of the jar! Makes a great keto snack if you are doing low carb diet (just leave the sugar out of the recipe). 

Enjoy the eggs with….

  • A green salad – really accents a vinaigrette dressing! 
  • Incorporate into an egg salad for a little extra bite! 
  • Use as a garnish with a lighter meal
  • Serve on a pickle tray for a party! 
  • These pickled eggs make excellent deviled eggs! They add all kinds of flavor!
  • Spicy Pickled Bar Eggs make a great side for foil grilled salmon

How Long Will Pickled Eggs Last? 

Pickled eggs like this that are simply refrigerated should be used within 3-4 months after the first 2 weeks pickling time (total of 3 ½ – 4 ½ months). 

How Do I Store These Pickled Eggs? 

These pickled eggs need to be refrigerated because they are not sealed by canning. 

How Can I Cook Easy Peel Hard Boiled Eggs? 

That’s an easy one! I have the perfect recipe, right HERE

Basically, 

  1. Bring water to a boil.
  2. Add cold eggs (yes a one or two might break, cook 2-3 more than you actually need). 
  3. Time for EXACTLY 11 minutes. 
  4. When timer goes off, turn the heat off and allow eggs to sit for 1-2 minutes more in the hot water while you prepare an ice bath. 
  5. Put ice in a bowl, cover with water. 
  6. Use a large slotted spoon or kitchen spider to remove the eggs from the hot pan into the iced water. 
  7. Allow eggs to sit in the ice bath for at least 10-20 minutes. 
  8. Peel eggs by cracking on the LARGE end first, then run under cool water, allowing the water to help separate the egg from the inner membrane. 

Are Pickled Eggs Good For Your Health? 

That is entirely up to the type of diet you are working on and what you plan to achieve. In general, vinegar is considered a typical diet ingredient. 

The herbs and spices added to this recipe, unless not right for you, are edible and part of a balanced diet. 

There is a small amount of white sugar in this recipe, and that has to be your personal decision. Some folks avoid that ingredient. 

Eggs are a terrific inexpensive source for protein and several vitamins! 

Why Are Pickled Eggs Rubbery? 

The pickling process “cooks” the egg white further and does give it a slightly rubbery feel. Consuming the eggs earlier, is one way to mostly avoid this texture if you do not like it. 

Do Pickled Eggs Go Bad? 

Yes, they can go bad. According to The National Center for Home Preserving, pickled eggs are good for about 3-4 months if kept refrigerated.

Tips and Tricks for Spicy Bar Pickled Eggs Recipe

  • Select eggs that are all basically the same size. I used large eggs and 8 fills a quart sized container. 
  • It’s always good to boil a few extra eggs in case that one should break during boiling or doesn’t peel right. In this case, you might find that you need an extra egg to fill the jar. 
  • Feel free to use a jar you have saved from typical food uses for this recipe. No need to go buy an entire case of jars. An old spaghetti jar or old pickle jars will work. 
  • You do not have to make this in a quart sized jar, the point is that you boil the eggs, add the spices and then cover with the vinegar mix. The container doesn’t matter as long as it is glass and clean with a lid that you can keep in the refrigerator. 
  • Dill can be hard to find (although it is beautiful in the jar). Feel free to use dill pickle juice instead of the vinegar to help with the dill flavor if that is what you are after. 
  • If you don’t like the taste of dill, simply leave it out of your mix. 
  • Add more garlic if you prefer that flavor with your pickled eggs. 
  • If you are looking for the red eggs, those are pickled with a few slices of pickled beets added in. Feel free to do so. Personally, I like the look of the white eggs. 
  • You’ll want to add most of the spices to the jar first, it can be a challenge to get them in there if the eggs are already in the jar. I typically add ¾ of the spices first, add half the eggs, layer in the other ¼ of the spices and then the remainder of the eggs then pour the solution over the top. 

PRO TIP: Adjust the flavor of your eggs by thinking through other flavors you might prefer with your eggs. Add a few baby pickles to your jar? Pickled Okra? How about a few slices of carrots? All great tastes!

Ingredients

  • 9 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 ½ cups white vinegar
  • ¾ cups water
  • 1 tbs white sugar
  • 1 tbs kosher salt
  • ½ jalapeno sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh dill
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ white onion sliced thin
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp pickling spice

Instructions

  • Boil the eggs and peel. Allow to cool. (see notes for egg boiling tips and link to my article on how to boil perfect peeling eggs).
  • In a medium saucepan on the stove, heat over medium heat vinegar, water, sugar and salt. Stir until the sugar and salt are dissolved, then remove immediately from the heat to cool.
  • In a clean quart sized (or two half pint sized jars) place ¾ of your other ingredients (jalapeno, dill, bay, onion, garlic and spices). Once the eggs have cooled, add half of the eggs. Then, add the remainder of the spices and herbs followed by the remainder of the eggs until the jar is full.
  • Once the solution has cooled, pour it over the top of the eggs very gently. Secure with a jar lid and place into the fridge for 5-7 days until cured.
  • PRO TIP: Consider other ingredients for your spice mix. What if you went with asian flavor or southwest flavors? The possibilities are endless. Get creative!

This recipe looks easy to make and looks so delicious! I have extra eggs and I am going to make it! I do not have any glass jars, so I hope that a Pyrex container will work.
