Fried Hard-Boiled Eggs

I love hard boiled eggs. I love them plain, with just a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I love them topped with a variety of toppings – mayonnaise, mustard, sour cream, salsa, or hot sauce. Obviously, I love them deviled (who doesn’t?).

I make a dozen hard boiled eggs at least once a week, so we can always have one or two if we’re hungry between meals.

My latest egg discovery: hard boiled eggs halved and fried in butter until golden-brown. They come out so delightful: warm and buttery, soft yet crispy. Fried hard boiled eggs make a perfect snack, a great breakfast, and they are also very good for lunch or dinner, as a salad topping.
