Pretty Pink Pickled Eggs with Beets and Onions

      My first time eating pickled eggs was at McGuires Irish Pub in Pensacola, FL as a little girl. They serve them on their combo snack plate and I, being the girlie girl I am, just loved their bright fuchsia color! Alas, McGuires doesn't serve them anymore {dang it}! So I decided to recreate my own version of Pretty Pink Pickled Eggs (say that 3 times fast!) at home using pickled beets and onions. Hope you enjoy!

 Ingredients:


  • 1 dozen hard boiled peeled eggs
  • 2 16 oz jars of pickled sliced beets
  • 1 Vidalia onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt

Directions:

    1. Drain beet juice from both jars into a pot. It should be about 2 cups.
    2.  Mix in sugar, salt, and apple cider vinegar and bring to a boil. 
    3. Turn down to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. 
    4.  Mix peeled eggs, sliced drained beets, and onions in a bowl or jar.
    5.  Pour hot juice mixture on top of eggs.
    6.  Seal in a jar or in a bowl with a lid. Place in the refrigerator for at least a day.

    My husband's trick for boiling eggs perfectly: Place eggs in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes. Remove to the sink into an ice water bath to stop cooking and cool down.
     Crack the shell and it should just slide off!

    You may have to open a window because the smell is strong!~
     Slice onion in half, then slice thinly.

     Beautiful pink eggs!
     These make delicious snacks, appetizers, or sides.

     I like to serve in a small bowl with one egg and some beets and onions! Yum!
     Now I can make my favorite snack at home.
    I love making a big batch in a mason jar just like this and
    serving them to my egg lovin' family for snacks!
