Egg Fast Recipe - Munavoi (Egg Butter)

If you've ever been on an Egg Fast before, you've probably had some version of this Finnish dish.  It's called Munavoi, and it's translated to "Egg Butter."  Traditionally, this is spread on toast, but since we can't have toast on an Egg Fast, we just eat it as-is.  If you've never had it, it might sound a bit odd, but believe me, it really IS delicious!  And best of all, it really can't get any easier!  To mix-up the flavor a little bit, try it with a sprinkling of seasoned salt or garlic salt.

  • 2 eggs, hard-boiled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Salt, as desired (may omit if butter is salted)
  • Pepper, as desired


1. Mash hard-boiled egg and butter together with a fork.  If the mixture is staying too dry, microwave for 10-15 seconds to melt the butter, and mix that way.
2.  Add seasonings to taste.

Yields: 1 serving

  1. Oh my goodness! I had two hard boiled eggs in my lunch today, and I just couldn't face eating them plain. I found this recipe and gave it a shot (so glad I stashed a stick of butter in the office fridge). I wasn't sure what to expect, but I am so glad I tried it. It's delicious!

    1. Yes, when people first hear about Munavoi, they're often put-off by the sound of it. But I'm with you. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I tried it, too. ;)
