Seasoned Smoked Eggs Recipe

Looking for a unique twist on deviled eggs? Try this smoked egg recipe, perfect for appetizers or snacks. These quail or chicken eggs are boiled, coated with a blend of salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then cold-smoked for 40 minutes, adding a delicious smoky flavour to the traditional deviled egg recipe.

Ingredients

4 Oz granulated salt (non iodized) or kosher salt

2 Tsp ground black pepper

2 Tsp garlic powder

4 Doz quail eggs (or 6-10 large chicken eggs), hard boiled and peeled

Preparation

In a saucepan, cover the eggs with 1 inch cold water, and boil until the eggs are cooked.

Remove eggs from the heat, drain and plunge into ice cold water to cool. Peel eggs when they are cool enough to handle.

While the eggs are cooking, place the first three ingredients in a ziploc bag (1 gallon size), and shake to mix all ingredients.

Next, add the eggs that have been cooked and peeled, and shake until all eggs are coated evenly. Leaving the eggs in the bag, place them in the refrigerator for at least two hours.

Remove eggs from the refrigerator, take them out of the ziploc bag, and cold smoke eggs for 40 minutes, using your favorite wood.
