Global Recipes for Easter Eggs

Whether you have hard-boiled Easter eggs to use up or not, spring is the perfect time to look at how different cultures around the world enjoy hard-boiled eggs.

In Ethiopia, hard-boiled eggs are a traditional part of the meal. Dishes such as doro wat call for a hard-boiled egg for each person. Most Ethiopians are live in rural areas and can raise their own chickens and collect their own eggs. In fact, livestock such as chickens are an important investment for most Ethiopian families.

Many Swedish children love eating a sandwich that combines hard-boiled eggs with cod roe caviar (kalles kaviar) for a salty and delicious snack. Other variations include shrimp and creme fraiche. KidCulture has already answered the question, “Can you feed a kid caviar?” in this blog post.

Scotch eggs are hard-boiled eggs, wrapped in sausage, rolled in bread crumbs and then deep-fried. I’m not sure how likely your children are to eat it so try it out on some willing grown-ups first! Here’s a Scotch egg recipe from Epicurious.com and a YouTube video that shows you how to do it.

In the Philippines, egg sarciado is a boiled egg recipe in a tomato and onion sauce. Here’s an egg sarciado recipe you can try.

  1. Interesting egg dishes in different parts of the world. I did not even know we have an egg sarciado dish in the Philippines until this post all I know is the fish sarciado which uses eggs as the sauce. And thanks for plugging my Blog, I am flattered!
