These are a great snack or appetizer. They are brownish in color, so if you serve them to guests they are sure to be a conversation starter! You can vary the vinegar to suit your taste or color preference!

I really enjoyed this recipe. I was looking for a different pickled egg recipe and this was it. I was surprised by the strong garlic after taste. I think the quality of balsamic vinegar makes a difference in the overall taste. I will definitely make this again. Read More

Sorry I hate to do this but these were not good. I grew up on pickled eggs (jar of beets apple cider vinegar and sugar) but this time I decided to do something different and use this recipe. I used 18 eggs since I love pickled eggs. There is a bitter coffee aftertaste to these. I will stick to pickled beet eggs. Read More

I think the completely brown-colored egg is a bit overpowering (visually)for an otherwise nice way to make pickled hard-boiled eggs. A thought: Keep the shell on but crackle the shell then place the shell-on egg into the liquid. Leave it for a day or maybe two then peel it. You should have a wonderfully marble-effect egg.

I loved the flavor of these eggs! I think the key is you have to really like balsamic vinegar. These eggs do not taste like traditional pickled eggs. The egg prep really depends on the eggs you use.... We use nest fresh eggs and the trick is to place eggs in cold water with1/8 cup salt per qt. Of water.... Bring to full boil...remove from heat... Cover and let set for 17 minutes....place eggs in to ice cold water until chilled. This way the eggs are cooked through and pop right out of the shell. Yummy thank for sharing the recipe! Read More

These pickled eggs are not bad but not quite what I was looking for. My son loves pickled eggs but he did not like the little sweetness in these I would probable leave the sugar out. The color is also very intimidating; if you can get past that it s not a bad egg. Read More

This is our favorite pickled egg recipe. Just sweet enough and different than your standard pickled egg. We don't use the onion just a preference and they come out great. Read More

honestly i loved the flavor! It's the egg preping that did not work. These eggs were only half cooked. I advise to fully boil the egg before aging. I questioned it before I made them but wanted to follow the recipe exactly. If you like a sunny side up pickled egg..more power to ya! 3stars for flavor!!!! Read More
