Polish stuffed eggs (Jajka faszerowane)

Easter is one of the most important holidays  in Poland.  Similarly to Christmas, food plays a big role on the way Polish people celebrate this festivity. Families all over the country get together and share traditional Easter dishes. As in many other countries, many of the Easter recipes involve eggs. But there are many other dishes and desserts prepared for this occasion. If you want to learn more about how Polish people celebrate Easter, check the post of my friend David from Chido-Fajny.

Since I couldn’t decide which dish I should share with you, I asked our Babcia (Polish Grandma) to tell me what is her favourite Easter dish and I was surprised to hear about stuffed egg shells. I had never tried this dish before. So I decided to go for it.

As usual, I chose an easy recipe. But I have to admit that there is one difficult step: Cutting the egg shells is really hard. Out of 4 eggs I actually managed to get only 4 halves that were not completely destroyed. If you know a trick on how to cut the eggs (with shells), please share this with me in the comments below.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs (hard boiled)
  • 2 mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp chives
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp butter (+ few more for frying)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Method

Dice the mushrooms and fry them with one or two spoons of butter.

Cut the hard boiled eggs in half (don’t peel the shells) and remove all the eggs from the shells very gently and add them to a bowl. Set the shells aside.

Chop the chives. Then add the butter, mustard, mushrooms and chives to the eggs.

Mix all ingredients well with a fork. Is important to mix the ingredients enough so the butter and mustard are evenly distributed among the eggs.

Fill the egg shells with the egg mixture. Then pass all the eggs through breadcrumbs. Be very careful not to brake the egg shells.

Then fry the egg shells either with butter or oil.

And that’s it. Serve immediately :).

This recipe became one of my favourites now! It has such a different taste than any other hard boiled eggs recipes I’ve tried. I hope you enjoy this one.

Happy Easter to all of you and your loved ones <3!
