12 Days of Christmas - Day 2 Spiced Eggs
Welcome to Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Bonanza! Not all Christmas recipes have to be indulgent (and usually in my case sweet!) Sometimes you're in need of a healthier snack or light lunch. In my case, I usually need something with a bit of nutritional value after eating lots of batter and offcuts.
These spiced eggs are perfect around this time of year, as you can make a bunch of them and keep them in your fridge, ready to use on some crackers with avocado, on toast or in a salad. I used my favourite spices, in particular smoked paprika, but you can easily adapt this recipe for the flavours you love or what you have on hand.
4 eggs at room temperature
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
Pinch Salt & Grind pepper
Fill a small saucepan with water and add a pinch of baking soda, then place the eggs in the water. Bring to the boil and boil for 6 minutes.
Remove the eggs from the heat and place into cold water. Once cooled, remove the shell, I like this method.
Mix the smoked paprika, sesame seeds, cumin seeds, salt & pepper and place on a flat plate. Roll the eggs in the spice mixture until well coated.
Store in the fridge until ready to use.
