Egg Fast Recipe - Honey Mustard Pickled Eggs


These pickled eggs have a rather deceiving name.  There is actually no honey in this recipe at all, but make no mistake - these eggs have the distinct flavor of honey-mustard!  The hubby was actually surprised that there was no honey at all; it made me feel like quite the sneaky, little chef!  Heehee.  These pickled eggs are on the sweeter side, compared to other pickled eggs I've made.  I'm a serious honey-mustard lover, so of course, this is one of my favorite Egg Fast recipes to date!  If you want to add your "fats" to this one, a couple tablespoons of mayo would easily do the trick - use the mayo to dip the eggs in, or mash it up with the eggs to make a kind of "honey-mustard" egg salad.  YUM!

This recipe makes exactly 2 pickled eggs using the handy little 8-ounce jelly jars I bought. These jars are the perfect size for 2 eggs, but you could easily make a larger batch and throw it in a larger jar.  The food coloring is completely optional, but if you want that "mustard" color, you will need the food coloring.

Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
  • 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Splenda Granulated
  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard (or 2 tablespoons prepared mustard)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 drops yellow food coloring (optional)
Directions:
1.  Place your hard-boiled eggs into an 8-ounce jelly jar.
2.  In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, Splenda, ground mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and food coloring.
3.  Pour vinegar mixture over eggs, filling jelly jar completely.
4.  Seal jelly jar and place in the fridge.  Let eggs rest for about 5-7 days in the fridge, flipping jar over every day or so (ingredients will settle).
