A retro recipe that stands the test of time. These little round beauties are the highlight of any get together. Hard boil the egg, slice in 6 slices, (I use a egg slicer) top with salt & pepper, (I use a course ground pepper) dollop each slice with a zesty bit (about 1/4 tsp or more if you like) ketchup and Tabasco, and slide on to the Ritz. A smooth, but slightly salty and most definitely zesty bit of wonder right onto your taste buds.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice hard cooked eggs evenly.
  2. Stir together ketchup and Tabasco sauce.
  3. Place slice egg on top of Ritz, add a small dollop of ketchup-Tabasco sauce to top. Garnish with a fresh basil leave, sliced.
  4. Hard-boiled egg method - place the eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by a 1/2-inch. Bring water to a very gentle boil. Turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for exactly (in pot) 12 minutes. After the time has passed place cooked eggs in a bowl of ice, and ice water until ready for use. Peel shell under cold water.

Saved this for the New Year's! What a great idea,that replaced the devilled eggs(much higher in calories). To dress it up a little I placed some on cucumber and tomato slices. Another great way to get kids to eat eggs, especially if they get to help. Wonderful and easy recipe. Thanks andi.

What a fun little treat. I made half as written, and the other half I replaced the ketsup/hot sauce mix with red pepper jelly (I don't care for ketsup). My husband tried both and said he liked both equally. Thanks for posting!!

These are fun to make. I eyed all the ingredients into a food baggie and squished around to mix. Then I cut a tip off the bag and pipped it onto the crackers. I used Steamed Eggs (Kai Meung) by Peter J to cook the eggs. Made for Best of 2011 Cookbook Official Game
