I love anything pickled and always have a gallon sized jug of dill pickles in the fridge. When it is empty I make these eggs. It's a real quick fix when you want some pickled eggs. I am not going to pretend to you that these are as good as other recipes where you make your own brine... but these work for me in a pinch. Save the pickled onion slices for hamburgers or use in a potato salad.
