Helgrid's Eggs with Mustard Sauce

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

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!

For the full list of ingredients & detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. But before you scroll, there’s important & interesting stuff to know right below.

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

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.

Want a non-dairy or vegan mustard sauce?

My daughter-in-law, Sylvie, has been creating vegan recipes that mimic my German ones, with whole-food plant-based ones. Particularly since she and her family love mustard and sauces, the challenge for 'veganizing' this mustard sauce recipe was well accepted. And she succeeded in creating not only one method but three for German mustard sauce ... that will have your taste buds jumping for joy. 

My vegan version of Oma's German mustard sauce will make everyone's taste buds jump for joy! In fact, I made 3 slightly different versions!

Here she shows the mustard sauce with boiled potatoes and avocado, but if you're just wanting to go non-dairy, then you can serve it with boiled eggs. But, I must say, avocados are a great alternative to the traditional eggs.
