Top Ten Hard Boiled Egg Toppings

When it comes to healthy, portable, quick snacks, the ineffable boiled egg remains a classic for good reason. They might not be the sexiest snack, but these compact and endlessly customizable high protein foods are favorite, clean-eating bites. To make sure your tastebuds stay tantalized, we’ve pulled together our top 10 boiled egg toppings to spice up your life. Whether you need a tasty healthy snack on the go or a crowd-friendly appetizer, these toppings are sure to elevate your egg game. 

To start off, we recommend mastering the art of the hard-boiled egg. We like this recipe for perfect hard-boiled eggs from Jar of Lemons. Or try an egg steamer that reportedly makes the eggs easier to peel. If you really want to get into the weeds, Food 52 covers 47 ways to cook the perfect hard-boiled egg. And while not truly a “hard” boiled egg, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include the lusciousness of a soft-boiled egg as well. Find the perfect way to prepare decadent delicacy with this recipe by Love and Lemons. 

Without further ado, here are the top 10 hard-boiled egg toppings we couldn’t live without:  

  1. Everything Bagel Spice – you know the one (looking at you Trader Joe’s). 
  2. wildbrine Kimchi Sriracha – packing a punch of probiotics, this fermented hot sauce is the spicy boiled egg topping you’ve been missing. 
  3. Fresh Herbs – diced chives, chopped dill, basil, or parsley adds bright freshness.
  4. Olive Oil– drizzled with some quality olive oil and sprinkled with a bit of salt and pepper, this classic topping is hard to beat. 
  5. Aioli – with flavors ranging from Latino-inspired to classic French, aioli is a recipe that can be customized endlessly and tastes delicious dolloped onto your eggs. Find a variety of recipes from Brit & Co. here. 
  6. Pickles – the briny punch of pickles adds complexity to the basic hard-boiled egg that has us going back for more. We love pickled jalapenos, onions, or okra. 
  7. Pesto – an elevated take on simple fresh herbs, spooning pesto over hard-boiled eggs lends a sweet Italian flavor that’s hard to resist. 
  8. Bacon – like a breakfast sandwich to go, adding salty, savory, crumbled bacon bits up the protein and deliciousness factor. 
  9. Salsa – personally, we love wildbrine’s Fermented Salsas, but your favorite salsa will do just fine. 
  10. Condiments – mustard, soy sauce, hot sauce, or salad dressing add easy flavor to eggs. 

For a meal with a bit more weight, and to flip things around, here are a few things to put hard boiled eggs in or on: 

  1. Avocado Toast – a classic for a reason. 
  2. Salad – throw a chopped hard-boiled egg into any salad for easy additional protein. 
  3. Potato Salad – adding hard-boiled eggs to a potato salad is a distinctly southern trend and one you should try at least once.
  4. Egg Salad – with so many styles and iterations, this age-old sandwich is easy to throw together, endlessly customizable, and most importantly, delicious. 
  5. Ramen – what soft-boiled eggs were made for. 

And finally, we couldn’t write an article about boiled eggs without including at least one recipe for deviled eggs. Make them on a Sunday and have a plate to snack on all week long. If they last that long. Which, let’s be honest, they never do. We’re partial to our Kimchi Deviled Eggs recipe which is excellent with our wildbrine Korean Style Kimchi. Additionally, these Bacon and Sauerkraut Deviled Egg Sliders from the Sophisticated Cave Man are not only adorable but would be delicious, especially with our sauerkrauts.
