Pickled eggs are my new go-to snack, and I hope to convince you why they should be yours too. They are high in protein, easy to make, and delicious. The best part is that you can get creative with pickled eggs while still ensuring they’re healthy and easy to make!

Pickled Eggs Are the New “It” Snack

I’ve been seeing pickled eggs on the menu at our favorite restaurants, and they’re everywhere on Instagram. We figured it was time to get in on the trend, especially because we have so many eggs from our spring hens. So I went back through some old recipes and settled on my favorite adaptation!

Pickled eggs are a cross between pickles and hard-boiled eggs! Think of a salt and vinegar potato chip! I love them for snacking or adding to my salads for an extra pack of protein. I also find the texture of the pickled egg to be much more appealing than a plain hard-boiled egg as well!

Luckily for us non-chefs out there looking to make our versions of this trendy treat, making them is pretty simple. You just need some hard-boiled eggs (you can boil them yourself or buy them pre-cooked), some white vinegar and salt water; then let them sit overnight before eating! This is the perfect project for leftover Easter eggs!

They Are High in Protein

  • Eggs, in general, are a good source of protein and can help you feel fuller for longer. Protein is the building block of muscle, which means it’s great for maintaining a healthy weight and also keeping you feeling full longer.
  • Packed with nutrients like iron (which boosts energy levels), vitamin B12 (for healthy brain function), calcium (to strengthen bones), and zinc (a natural anti-inflammatory agent), these tasty treats will give your body exactly what it needs without weighing you down with excess calories.

They’re Delicious

  • They’re easy to make.
  • They’re delicious.
  • They’re good for you! Eggs are high in protein and low in calories, which makes them an ideal snack food for anyone looking to lose weight or get fit. Plus, they taste great!

You Can Get Creative with Pickled Eggs While Still Ensuring They’re Healthy and Easy to Make

Pickled eggs are easy to make, and you can get creative with them while still ensuring they’re healthy. The necessities are vinegar, sugar and salt. However, the possibilities are endless from there. I have added ginger, turmeric, garlic, herbs to my pickled egg recipes to come up with some variety.

My Favorite Way to Pickle Eggs

Here is my favorite way to pickle eggs. I add beet juice. I love beets and all they have to offer with flavor and nutrition. But they also make the eggs a pretty pink color! Because of their natural sweetness, I also cut the sugar that I add to the recipe. You can used canned or jarred beet juice to keep it simple.

Pink Pickled Eggs

Preserved Pink Pickled Eggs in a Jar


  • 10-12 hardboiled eggs
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup beet juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • onions or shallots
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spice

Boil the eggs and let fully cool. Add the vinegar, beet juice, water, sugar and salt in a pan to bring to a boil. Let sugar and salt dissolve and then cool. Put eggs in a 2 liter jar, poor vinegar mixture over the eggs. Add the shallots, garlic and pickling spice. Cover tightly and then refrigerate. The eggs will be best if left to sit for 5-7 days, but they will still be tasty after one day.


I hope you’re ready to dive into the world of pickled eggs. They’re a delicious and healthy snack that can be used in a variety of ways. The best part about them is that they are easy to make and require very little time or effort on your part!
