Smoky Hard-Boiled Eggs


If you're looking for a fun summertime snack, perfect for taking on a picnic, look no further. These hard-boiled eggs, marinated overnight in a soy sauce/sesame oil mixture, are fun and different and quite yummy -- if I do say so myself. I got the recipe from one of those cute little community cookbooks from about 30 years ago.
Don't those community cookbooks have the best recipes ever?
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 T. sugar
1 t. sesame oil
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. liquid smoke
4-6 hard-boiled eggs
Mix all ingredients but the eggs. (I mix everything right in the measuring cup.) Put the eggs in a small bowl (lidded is good, if you have one) and pour marinade over. Refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.

Ooooh! Very interesting - I'm gonna have to try those. Especially after Easter when you have all those hard boiled eggs.

I love those cookbooks. I've got them from church womens' groups, painting groups, Kansas 4-H clubs and Bible studies - they're fantastic!

I love those old community books too! My mom's got them stock-piled so I always raid them when I'm at her house. :)

Happy International Picnic Day, Lynn!!! Looks like you've come up with the perfect recipe to bring to the Picnic Game. (or you can "smoke" up a new one:)

I love the "real" recipes I discover in community cookbooks. Which reminds me, I must remember the auction tomorrow. There are suppose to be a ton of cookbooks. Yeah!!!

Wanna Play? Drop by my blog to pick a letter. The picnic basket was brimming with goodies last year.

Thanks for sharing...Hope to see you there!

You left a message on my blog about "Queen of the Castle". I did not realize you were the one who wrote the book by that title. I saw it when I checked Amazon for mine. How interesting!
