Ginger Crackle Eggs

picture1123Hard cooked eggs make for a quick and easy, high protein breakfast.  Ginger Crackle Eggs are hard cooked, then infused with subtle flavor and caramel colored, fernlike patterns from ginger flavored rooibos tea.  These eggs are delicious on their own, and make a fun addition to summer salads.  Enjoy!

picture1116Ingredients (makes 2 eggs; double as needed)

2 eggs

1 tablespoon loose rooibos tea

2 thin slices fresh ginger

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/2 cups water


Step 1) Bake eggs in 325 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Setting eggs in mini muffin tins and placing the tins in the oven works well.

Step 2) After 30 minutes, remove eggs from oven and place in a bowl of ice water for 10 minutes.

Step 3) Meanwhile, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil, and steep tea with ginger and sugar for 5 minutes.

Step 4) After eggs have cooled, gently roll them on a flat surface to “crackle” the shells.

Step 5) Place hard cooked eggs with crackled shells in the steeped tea.  Let soak for 10 minutes.

Step 6) Remove eggs from tea, peel carefully, and enjoy!
