Crispy brown buttered eggs

By • October 27, 2011 • 11 Comments



Author Notes: Here's the deal with this recipe: it so forgiving! With not much in my fridge and not wanting to make a trip to the store, I relied on what was at hand and eggs, to my mind, are just about perfect at anytime of the day. I love their versatility. I was going to make egg salad, when this thought occurred to me: devil them and fry 'em up! Deviled eggs need a new name because these were angelic! Make your own favorite recipe for them, but here's
what I did with mine: Oh, and serve them with a simple green salad and there's dinner!

Serves 22 if you're lucky

  • 12 fresh eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayo
  • 1 pinch cayanne pepper
  • 1 finely chopped shallot
  • optional garlic powder to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • butter for frying
  • a tiny bit of extra virgin olive oil can be added if egg mixture is too dry, or if you don't like mayo
  1. Hard boil the eggs and when cool, shell and slice them in half, placing the yolks into a separate bowl .
  2. Mix the egg yolks with the Dijon, mayo, or a bit of your best olive oil if you're not a mayo lover. Add some garlic powder to taste (your choice) a pinch of cayanne and salt & pepper and what ever you choose! Meanwhile, mince a fresh shallot and sauté it in olive oil until translucent and add to the egg yolk mixture when cooled.
  3. Then, spoon the cooled egg yolk mixture into the cooled egg white halves and heat up a fry pan with butter. When the butter is browning, place the filled egg on the yolk side down and sauté for about a minute, when it should be nicely crisped!
  4. If you have fresh chives add them on top. If not, they're just as good as is!

Thanks mrslarkin!! I ate six (give or take a couple more) and then thought crap, when do I ever eat six or eight eggs? Then remembered that since they were halved, I'd just go with the 3 or 4 egg omelet pretending game.

Hi Lori! I'm trying to upload of photo and I keep getting error messages. Not sure what's up with that! I put the eggs in cool water in a sauce pan to cover them, let them boil for about 6 - 7 minutes, remove from heat and rinse them under cold water to make it easier to peel them. I find that if they're not cold, it's really hard to peel the shell without tearing the white away. Hope this helps and let me know if you try them. They were so good!
