Helgrid's Eggs with Mustard Sauce ❤️

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

❤️ German Eggs with mustard sauce. Usually served with boiled potatoes & creamed spinach.

Eggs with mustard sauce recipe, aka Eier in Senfsosse!  WUNDERBAR! It's one of those easy and quick lunch recipes that's very common in Germany, especially in Bavaria.

Perhaps you've never thought of using eggs for your protein in place of meat? In fact, that's what I used to think. That is, until my sister, Helgrid, invited me for lunch and this German food was on the menu!

What's so great about it is that it's so easy. And, it can be easily made in under 30 minutes. It's a really nice change from the usual meat, potatoes, and vegetables. 

Above, I've served the eggs with mustard sauce with creamed spinach and boiled potatoes as quick sides. Lecker Schmecker!

This is just one of several recipes using eggs that have a different sauce than usual. Want to try another one that's really different?

Serve the hard-boiled eggs with green sauce that's a regional specialty of Hessen, Germany, so you'll find the recipe on that page. (Somehow whenever I here of it, I think of Dr. Seuss's "Green Eggs and Ham.") It's a regional specialty of Hessen, Germany. 

Serve this with rice or boiled potatoes. A salad on the side. Lunch or supper's done! Need help in hard boiling eggs? Check out the link: How to hard boil eggs.

Eggs?

Eggs are a perfect food ... satisfying ... delicious ... versatile. Low in calories, they are a great protein alternative for meat, and also boast iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids. 

Need that “all’s good with the world” feeling? Comfort food will do that. Grab my German Comfort Foods e-Cookbook written in English just for you.

Sharing traditional German foods, made using easily available ingredients, ... that's such a delicious way to feel a 'hug' anytime of the year.
