Eggs in Salt Water (For Passover)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This really can't be called a recipe. But it is our traditional first course at Passover Seder, and it is yummy.


  1. Hard boil eggs by your favorite method.
  2. Peel eggs immediately and store them in the refridgerator until chilled.
  3. Chop the peeled eggs and divide into bowls.
  4. Pour salt water over the eggs to taste.
  5. Serve immediately.

This is a staple at my inlaws for Pesach. Shows up on our seder table every other year. We alternate between this and another family favorite, Wet Matzoh.

OK, so it's not Passover, but I had to try it. Very tasty breakfast. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT4.

Well, what can I say other than this is a must every year on the Seder table. I grew up with this and have been making it myself every year. This year too, that is why I decided to rate it during PAC. I boil one egg per person and the salt water I "serve" luke-warm. Some years the water is saltier than other, don't know why. No Passover without it. Reviewed for PAC Spring '08. Thanks for posting.
