Polish Stuffed Eggs in Shells (Alternative Deviled Eggs)

Jajka faszerowane is a well-known dishes – it’s stuffed eggs. But, it can be done in many different ways, but everyone automatically assumes it’s deviled eggs.

You know, those eggs you cut in half and make a mush out of yolk, just to mix it with something and put it back in, preferably in a decorative way.

I never liked typical deviled eggs, as it was too much plain white. Jajka w skorupkach – eggs in shells are definitely my favorite.

In Poland you’d normally see them in brown shells, but unfortunately my local store in the US doesn’t sell brown eggs.

Similar to egg cutlers, stuffed eggs were popular during interwar period. These days, it’s a typical Easter breakfast dish.

You can change the recipe up and try some with bacon pieces, others with mushrooms and onions, some people like it without anything extra – just eggs.


Stuffed Eggs in Shells Recipe Pointers

  • Keep in mind that getting eggs out of shells without breaking it is a tricky part of this recipe. I usually lose one egg, but then I make egg cutlets out of it instead.
  • I recommend cutting the eggshell in your hand, not on a chopping board. That way you have more control over it.
