Easter is all about Chocolate. Chocolate hares, bunnies and of course the beloved chocolate eggs.
But they don’t all have to be chocolate, so today I’m gonna share some of my favorite easter egg dishes.
Rye bread with eggs and cress:
A classic at the danish easter lunch table. All you need is some delicious, dark sourdough rye bread, good butter, cold boiled eggs, mayonnaise and cress. Butter, the bread, slice the eggs and put on top. Add a bit of mayonnaise and sprinkle cress on top. Use salt and pepper to taste.
Boiled eggs and pickled herring:
Another simple egg dish perfect for easter lunch. You need half a cold boiled egg, a few pieces of pickled herring, and some slices of cucumber and tomato. If you’re feeling fancy you can mix a bit of mayonnaise with a bit of curry and a bit of finely chopped pickled cucumber. Add a teaspoon as a sauce.
Perfect for sandwiches for an easter picnic. Chop cold boiled eggs, and mix with mayonnaise, curry, salt, pepper, finely chopped cucumbers and cress. Use them in sandwiches with some fresh salad.
I never use a real recipe for these. It’s more a “what ever I have to use” kind of situation. All you need to make deviled eggs is a bunch of cold, boiled eggs. Half the eggs, remove the egg yolk, and mix it with what ever delicious stuff you have in your fridge. I like to use a bit of mayonnaise as the base, then add stuff like hot sauce, finely chopped pickled cucumbers, bacon pieces, or other nice stuff. One good idea to not spoil the eggs and yolks, is to mix everything with the mayonnaise before adding the yolk. When you got the perfect mixture, you add it back into the egg whites and serve.
Eggs with mustard sauce:
Another classic easter dish. You boil eggs, and peel them. Melt some butter in a pan, add some flour and let it be absorbed in the butter. Stir it and add milk. Bring to a boil and let simmer a bit while you stir until it thickens. Add salt and pepper, and taste it. If it taste like flour it needs to boil a bit more. Then add mustard until it get a nice bite.
Serve the warm eggs cut in half and with a spoonful of mustard sauce on top.
