Bite-Sized Pickled Eggs


Post by community member:


Pickled eggs…yum.

A delicious treat, and when the menfolk are having a playdate poker game, it gives the garage the “bar food” ambiance their friends find so impressive.

FYI! If you are going to feed your menfolk copious amounts of spicy pickled eggs, make sure they are immediately leaving the house for camping or will be sleeping outside the following evening.

I like to use the bantam (miniature) chicken eggs for pickled eggs. They are bite-sized and an excellent use of the little eggs I don’t sell to customers.


You can use any brine recipe you want, but I like mine a little spicy.

How to make Spicy Bite-Sized Pickled Eggs:

18 bantam eggs, boiled and peeled
1 1/2 cups vinegar (apple cider vinegar is good, too)
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon cumin
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon dried habanero flakes
1 tablespoon peppercorns
bay leaves

Over medium heat, mix together the vinegar, water, and spices. Bring to a boil and mix in the garlic and bay leaf. Remove from heat.


Transfer boiled, peeled eggs to sterile jar. Fill the containers with the hot vinegar mixture; seal.


Refrigerate at least a week before serving.

    What is that pretty red egg-thing in the pan? With the markings on it?

    LOL! It is an egg-timer. When you boil it with the eggs, it tells you about how well-done they are.

    I’ll take some pictures so you can see.

    Oh, I can’t wait until Jim sees this post.

    He made pickled eggs when we lived in our old house (which was pre-2003), and they are STILL in our garage refrigerator.

    We joke that we will have to take them in when they do the annual collection of household hazardous items each year.

    It does make me wonder really how long pickled eggs are good (i.e., not haz-mats)

    Yes please do! That’s so cool! We love hard-boiled or deviled eggs. I’d love to have one.

  5. 4-27

    Man those look good!
    And, yep I still have them eggs. Found out that haz mat people will not touch them. Since they now glow in the dark.

    At least they have not eaten through the glass jar.I will try to make some more real soon.

    How long DO pickled eggs last?

  7. 4-27

    I read that they store for 3-4 months for best taste…now when do they turn haz-mat? I have no clue I would trash them after the 4 month mark but hey my grandparents had food in their fridge, I was cleaning out, that had an expiration date older than I…

  8. 4-27

    My mom has pickled them for 3-4 months at a time. They sit in a jar with beets in the back of the fridge.

    pm will let you look up ANY food and see roughly how long its good for.

    Tried this recipe. It needs salt? I thought they were flat–good flavor, but flat. I used quail eggs and it worked well. Anybody else think it needed salt?
