With Easter around the corner and the abundance of hard-boiled eggs we all get stuck with, having unique egg recipes at your disposal may just be what we all need to spice up an otherwise ordinary Easter celebration. But first you may ask, “What’s the secret to having a perfect batch of Easter eggs?” Well, the key to perfect-looking Easter eggs is to master the art of boiling them. An impeccably dyed Easter egg may look good on the outside but peeling its outer shell may reveal an ugly truth: Gray-green yolks that no one would dare eat—meh!
To avoid this, let a standard-sized egg stand in a boiling pot for an average of 10 to 12 minutes. Small-sized eggs only require 8 to 10 minutes, while large and extra-large eggs average between 12 to 15 minutes. That green ring around the yolk forms when the eggs cook for too long, so make sure to properly set the alarm on your timer. With all that being said, having quality nitrile disposable gloves within reach does come in handy. Whether boiling or dyeing your Easter eggs, be sure to wear a pair of quality 1st Choice 5-mil or 1st Choice 6-mil black nitrile disposable industrial gloves, so you can give yourself and your hands their much-needed protection. Without further ado, here are several unique egg recipes to try with your leftover Easter eggs. Enjoy!
The term “deviled egg” comes from a centuries-old culinary term that was used to describe a highly seasoned dish that was either boiled or fried. Eventually, the term also included spicy, condiment-filled dishes that were made with eggs. In modern times, deviled eggs can be described as hard-boiled eggs that have been shelled, halved, and infused with a paste made of egg yolks and savory fillings like mayonnaise or mustard. They’re served cold as a side dish or appetizer during gatherings, parties, and other social events. Pro-tip: serving these eggs in social gatherings with a pair of quality black nitrile disposable industrial gloves from the 1st Choice glove line will not only protect your guests from unexpected food hazards but will also leave them with a better impression than serving them these delectable treats barehanded.
Chinese Tea Eggs
A cooking technique that originates from the east coast of China, traditionally made to preserve food, features eggs steeped in black tea- a popular Chinese snack among locals and Asian communities around the world. They’re also known as “marbled eggs” because the cracks in their shells create darkened lines with marble-like patterns. To make these eggs, first boil them until fully cooked inside, then remove their shells and proceed to steep them in a spiced tea mixture at low heat. The longer they’re allowed to steep, the richer the flavor will be. Just make sure to protect your hands from accidental cuts and bruises while peeling by having a box of 1st Choice nitrile disposable industrial gloves nearby.
Named after the establishment that invented them, William J. Scott & Sons is a well-known eatery that sold the “Scotties,” a type of hard-boiled egg wrapped in creamy fish paste with a coat of breadcrumbs for texture. In recent times, sausage meat is used instead of fish paste. They’re common “picnic food,” and are served hot with dipping sauces such as ranch dressing, hot sauce, or even mustard sauce. Additionally, aside from being a common finger food in outdoor events, they’re also sometimes served on a stick, like the Scotch eggs found at the annual Minnesota state fair. In a similar fashion, you may also come across these eggs in most Renaissance fairs and festivals across the US. Avoid making a mess or getting sticky fingers by wearing a pair of quality 5-mil or premium 6-mil black nitrile disposable industrial gloves from 1st Choice.
Egg avial or mutta avial is a popular Kerala delicacy from South India made with hard-boiled eggs, ground coconut, select aromatic spices, and cooked Indian drumsticks (also known as moringa tree pods). To prepare, boil several potatoes with a few spoons of tamarind paste until the concoction is soft, sweet, and slightly tangy. Next, grind some coconut, garlic, cumin seeds, green chili, and turmeric, then sauté afterwards. Create a silky gravy using the potato and tamarind stock, add in your eggs, and top it all off with dal tadka (lentils). As a tip, adding raw cashews will elevate your egg avial’s flavor to new heights, so go ahead and add them for a full-on Indian culinary experience. Don’t forget to stock up on 1st Choice nitrile disposable industrial gloves to keep your hands clean and your loved ones safe from food-borne illnesses.
Also known as “anda biryani” in India, this dish is a wholesome one-pot meal made by cooking together fragrant long-grain basmati rice, spiced hard-boiled eggs, pureed tomatoes, caramelized onions, and select aromatic spices that leave a distinct punch in every bite. Those obsessed with eggs would sometimes add fried scrambled eggs on top of its core ingredient, the zesty hard-boiled egg. For anybody who would risk setting their tongues on fire, adding pulao masala and a squeeze of lemon juice to an egg biryani will provide that extra kick you’re looking for.
