This one is a keeper! I got tired of paying .80/per egg at the deli for these so I thought I'd try to make my own, these are perfect! Though I would recommend letting the eggs soak 2 days instead of 2 hours, that allows the juice to penetrate all the way through, and they get better the longer they sit. Just delicious!

Yum! I've been trying out different pickled egg recipes and this one is one of the best so far. I just love the flavor the beets give the eggs and the onions oh the onions are soooo delicious! After I ate up almost all of the eggs I cut up 3 more red onions and added them to the marinade. I've been eating them on tuna sandwiches. These are also very pretty eggs, violet, white and yellow...so cheerful. I also used 2 cans of beets so added some extra concentrated vinegar because my Hubby said they weren't vinegary enough- probably due to the extra beet juice.

I've been making these for three years now and my mom loves them. Personally, I can do without the beets, but the onions are terrific in a salad. I have my own chickens and use bantam eggs for a nice bite sized snack.

I was craving pickled eggs, and my husband (who doesn't even eat them) made these for me. They were delicious! Thanks for sharing.

This turned out really nice! I did not add the eggs, just the beets and onions. My husband could not stop eating them :) I myself am not a beet eater, but I did taste them and WOW they are not half bad. I loved the onions :) I will make these again. Thank you for posting Manda. Shirl

Fantastic! I brought these to a weekend getaway with my friends (after soaking the eggs 2 weeks) and they were an absolute hit! One friend even said he would pay me if I would make these for him on a regular basis. Hands down the best pickled eggs I ever made! Thank you!

This recipe has become a household name in our home. My b/f loves the eggs and onions and I love the eggs and beets. Better than store bought. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.

This is a recipe I have been using for years! Two hours does not do it justice though, Two weeks really makes it nice! Eat with some Good german sausage for breakfast!

Very, very good. Thanks for the recipe, been looking for a good pickled egg one for ages now. To be honest, I loved the onions and next time will add lots more. The brine didn't quite cover the eggs along with the beets and onions so I topped it off with leftover sweet pickle juice which diluted the strength of the brine a bit but it's really worth making these up. Will be great in the heat of summer just to nibble on.

This was very easy and had a really great taste. I wait at least 2 weeks before tasting. Even the onion slices taste wonderful and the beets are much better than store bought.
