Huevos Haminados (Sephardic Eggs)

We eat soft and hard boiled eggs year-round, but only at Passover do we go Sephardic.  The results are so beautiful and delicious, that I always wonder why we don’t bake our eggs in onion skins and coffee grounds on a regular basis, especially since they are so easy to make.  But then I forget until the next year, and so it goes.  I first found the recipe in Mollie Katzen’s “Sundays at the Moosewood Restaurant” and tried them on a whim.  When you peel them, they have a bit of a “brown eggs and ham” look about them, but the whites (now browns) have a rich but subtle flavor.  Add some salt and you are in egg heaven.  With the first seder just days away, I thought I would share the recipe with you.  You start them at night and they are finished by morning:

Huevos Hamidados (Sepharidic Eggs)

Heat oven to 200º

Line a casserole dish with dried onion skins

Place up to 1 dozen eggs in the dish.

Sprinkle 2-3 T. ground coffee over the eggs.

Add 1 T. olive oil and 1 t. kosher salt.

Pour water over the eggs until they are just covered.

Cover the dish, place in the oven for 6-8 hours.

Go to sleep.  Wake up to the delicious smell of eggs, coffee and onions.

Happy Pesach!
