#49 Hungary's töltött tojás

Hungary's  töltött tojás is stuffed eggs. It is known as deviled eggs in many parts of the world. In Hungary, there are many variations, but this recipe appealed to me the most because of it's healthy ingredients, simple preparation and very delicious taste! If you don't like mayonnaise, which is a common ingredient in many deviled eggs recipes, this is a great alternative.

Töltött Tojás 


5 ounces spinach
Olive oil
4 eggs

  1. Boil eggs. 
  2. Wash spinach, remove excess water and chop very finely.
  3. Drain water from hard boiled eggs and peel off the shells.
  4. Cut all 4 eggs in half length-wise, and remove the cooked yolk (yellow part), set in a bowl. Set the cooked egg whites aside.
  5. Using a fork or a spatula, break the cooked egg yolks into small pieces,
  6. Add finely chopped spinach and olive oil (as little or more as you like)
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste, mix well.
  8. Scoop a tablespoonful of the mixture (or more if you like) and place in each egg white.
  9. Store covered in a refrigerator. Serve cold.

 It's great. Try it!
