Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce Recipe

Looks damned good this. Love the colours.

I think the inspiration came from Devilled Eggs. This was a snack for yours truly only – but if you want to cook for two, simply double up, if for 3 treble up, etc.

Stick 2 eggs in a pan of cold water. Bash on the heat. Set the clock for 15 minutes and there are your boiled eggs on the go. As they are bubbling away make the sauce. In a bowl add;

  • 3 Tbsp tomato sauce,
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise – I used Japanese to get the vinegar kick,
  • 2 Tbsp of lime juice,
  • 1 Tsp of very finely chopped garlic,
  • 1 Tsp of smoked paprika, and
  • A pinch of sea salt and cracked black pepper.

Mix all together with a fork and there is your sauce. The eggs are likely done by now too, so pop them out of their shell, and slice them up. On your serving plate place a big dollop of the sauce and then with the back of your spoon sort of drag the sauce away from you. Looks nice. Lay the eggs (excuse the pun, again) atop that and serve away.

Come on anyone could make this right. A lovely little breakfast dish, that would make anyone receiving it happy. It looks good, it tastes fantastic. My Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce. Give them a go. I am extremely confident that you will – ENJOY!!!

The top questions and answers from the people also ask section for the best boiled eggs with paprika sauce recipe:

Q: How do I make sure my hard-boiled eggs are cooked through?

A: To make sure your hard-boiled eggs are cooked through, place them in a pot of cold water and bring the water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, turn off the heat and cover the pot. Let the eggs sit in the covered pot for 10 minutes. Then, drain the water and immediately run the eggs under cold water for 5 minutes. This will help to stop the cooking process and make the eggs easier to peel.

Q: Can I use any type of mayonnaise in this recipe?

A: You can use any type of mayonnaise in this recipe, but I recommend using a Japanese mayonnaise that has a strong flavour with that zing of vinegar. This will help to balance out the sweetness of the paprika.

Q: Can I add any other ingredients to the paprika sauce?

A: Sure, you can add any other ingredients to the paprika sauce that you like. Some popular additions include chopped fresh herbs, grated Parmesan cheese, or a splash of Worcestershire sauce.

Q: How do I store these eggs?

A: These eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To prevent the eggs from drying out, cover them tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

What is the origin of Paprika?

The Americas are the birthplace of the spice known as Paprika, which is produced by grinding up and drying red peppers. It is believed that it originated in South America, where it was initially cultivated by the indigenous peoples. It was later brought to Europe in the 16th century by Spanish and Portuguese explorers.

Once it arrived in Europe, Paprika quickly rose to prominence in Hungary, where it was perfected through time and eventually became an indispensable component of many traditional Hungarian recipes, such as goulash. The Paprika that is produced in Hungary is widely regarded as being of exceptionally excellent quality since not only does it have a flavor that is subtle but also a vibrant red color. Today, Paprika is used extensively as a seasoning in a wide variety of cuisines all over the world, ranging from meals prepared in Europe and Latin America to those prepared in Africa and the Middle East.

How to boil the perfect boiled egg?

Even though boiling an egg is a very straightforward operation, there are a few pointers that may be followed to ensure that the egg is cooked to perfection every time:

Begin with eggs that have been chilled by placing them in a single layer in a saucepan and covering them with cold water. If you start the eggs off in cold water, the cooking process will be more equal.

Put the saucepan on the stove over high heat, and bring the water to a rolling boil. 

Once the water has reached a boil, remove the saucepan from the heat, cover it with a lid, and allow it to set for the amount of time specified in the recipe to complete the cooking process. The following are the times that are advised for cooking:

  1. Soft-boiled egg (runny yolk): 4 to 5 minutes
  2. Medium-boiled egg (semi-solid yolk); 6 to 7 minutes
  3. 9–12 minutes for a hard-boiled egg (one with a completely set yolk).

Eggs should be cooled: When the eggs are done boiling, use a slotted spoon to carefully take them from the hot water, and then immediately transfer them to a bowl containing ice water so that they can cool. This will prevent the eggs from continuing to cook and will also make it much simpler to peel them.

After the eggs have cooled down, you may peel them and eat them as a snack, in a salad, or in a variety of other recipes. You can enjoy these eggs in a variety of ways.

If you follow these instructions to the letter, you should be able to boil eggs to perfection every time.
