Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Place the eggs gently in a pot, and cover them with cold water. The cold water just needs to cover the eggs. Bring to a boil without a lid.
  2. Let the eggs simmer for about 8 minutes. Next, cool the eggs down quickly in cold water.
  3. Peel and chop the eggs finely. Stir in the butter, salt and pepper. Add optional flavoring; see suggestions, below.
  4. Serve as-is or as a topping on seed crackers or as a dip for veggies.

Tip!

Try flavoring your egg butter with chili flakes, fresh herbs, or your favorite seasoning. Try it as a topping on hot or cold dishes such as avocado, salmon, turkey and ham. It even works in soups and stews and on top of veggies and salads!
