Last Monday was National TV Dinner Day. The week before that there was National Bacon Day. That was particularly exciting because our Butt Bacon myth picked up steam again. But of all of the foods deserving of their own day, there doesn’t seem to be any concensus about when to celebrate the pickled egg.
At first I was like you, skeptical of why anyone would ever want to eat such a thing. But after the first bite I was hooked. There are already a lot of great pickled egg recipe videos on Youtube – from DeepFriedKing’sÂ re-used Clausin brine recipe, to Rudomundo’s re-used Mt. Olive brine recipe,Â all the way up to more complicated recipes likeÂ MegaDiddly’s masterpiece “My World Famous Pickled Eggs.”
Seriously. Just searching “pickled eggs” on Youtube is a dangerous, productivity-killingÂ rabbit-hole. I mean, just now I discovered this gem:
This is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. The image that BigHouseDaddyÂ conjuresÂ up of Easter coming to an end with his father taking away the eggs and pickling them… it’s… It’s just the greatest thing ever to be put to words. You know what? Watch my video if you want. BigHouseDaddy’s video is the real star of this post.
