  1. Place egg in a 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, and cool under cold running water. Once the eggs cool for a bit, roll the eggs back and forth on the counter to crush the shells, then return to the cold water for up to an hour. They will peel very easily then.
  2. Place the peeled eggs in a large bowl or large wide mouthed jar with a lid. Pour in the pickled beets and juice. Add onions if you are using. Let them set in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours - 2 days is best if you can wait that long. Turn jar or stir once or twice to be sure that the eggs are evenly colored. Slice eggs in half and arrange on a tray to serve.

I have been eating these my whole life (68) and they have always had a couple tablespoon of cider vinegar in them. Maybe this is a Pennsylvania Dutch thing

The easiest recipe I know of...to answer Donnadeety's question, no you don't add cider vinegar as the pickeled beet juice contains it already

My family has been making pickled eggs with beets for as long as I can remember, So this was a easy substitute. One down fall it did have was the longer they sat the sweeter they got. I'm sure t...

I have even made pickled deviled eggs for an interesting color twist

Well, it was really difficult to wait 2 days but I did! We thought these were very good, I did add minced garlic. These make such a great 'on the run' snack for me!

Are you serious? Where the heck is the vinegar?

I tasted one after 24 hrs, and decided to add some apple cider vinegar as I like a bit of a twang to my pickled eggs. They were ok. I doubt I'll make them again.
