Pickled Eggs Recipe

Posted on

Pickled Eggs are not on my list of favorite foods but they are for my husband and son.  I love pickles and I love eggs but why anyone would want to eat a picked egg is beyond me.  With that said, I’ll share the recipe that me and my man used, in which, him and Tyler devoured each and every single egg as soon as 8 days hit!  Enjoy!

P.S. I’d double next time and make a lot more.


Recipe: Pickled Eggs Recipe


  • 12 extra large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups distilled white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 bay leaf (we removed the bay leaf after about 6 days because it has such a strong flavor and didn’t want it to overpower the other ingredients)


  1. Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool and peel.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix together the vinegar, water and pickling spice. Bring to a boil and mix in the garlic and bay leaf. Remove from heat.
  3. Transfer the eggs to mason jar of some sort. Fill the container with the hot vinegar mixture, seal and refrigerate 8 to 10 days before serving.

Quick notes

The pickling spice was found in the mason jar/canning section of our store, not in the spices area.

    I have never tried these, I have heard of them though. I like fried pickles!

    I have put boiled eggs into a jar of dill pickle juice (after the pickles were all eaten) and left them there for several days then used them when I made tuna.

    Hmm, I’ve never pickled my eggs like this! My Gramma taught me to make Red pickled eggs with vinegar and a can of beets w/ juice! They are delicious, I may have to try this version though!

    I found this site when I searched “I love pickled eggs”
    I just ate one!
    It has to be a guy thing. My girlfriend thinks they are gross
    I make mine similar to yours, except I don’t use pickling spices.
    I use 1/3 vinegar to water, about 1/4 cup pickling salt . Fresh Dill weed sprigs, garlic. skip the bay leaf.
    I let them sit for about 4 weeks. If I can wait.
    They are just like New England Salt Water pickles. Only eggs. Salty but Good.
