Author Notes

My husband loves "angry eggs" on the golf course; hard boiled eggs soaked in a combo of vinegar and hot sauce for several hours. It's a healthy and tasty snack (and he says they're good luck - hmmmm) Chopping them up for egg salad adds tart and spicy flavors, to the rich egg and mayonnaise ingredients. Adjust your hot sauce to make the eggs even "angrier". —secretsofahomecook

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 pint apple cider vinegar (2 cups)
