Matryoshka (Babushka) Eggs

I thought these eggs were awesome, and they are super easy to make!


50 g (=1.7 oz)cooked ham
2red sweet peppers
12black peppercorns
salt, pepper

  1. Hard boil the eggs, cool them using cold water and remove the shells. Cut the flat end off and carefully remove the yolk. Put egg yolks in a bowl and mash with a folk.
  2. Clean onions and mushrooms. Chop finely. Save a couple of longer mushroom pieces to make matryoshka’s hair later.
  3. Clean red pepper, remove seeds and membranes. Save 6 big pieces for matryoshkas’ headscarves and 6 small pieces to make the lips. Chop the rest finely.
  4. Chop cooked ham finely.
  5. Melt butter in a preheated pan. Sauté onions, mushrooms, red pepper and cooked ham until tender.
  6. Add into the bowl with mashed egg yolks and mix well together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Carefully stuff the mixture into the egg whites. Don’t let the “skins” tear!
  8. Place stuffed eggs on a plate and decorate as matryoshkas. Use black peppercorns as eyes, big red pepper pieces as headscarves, small red pepper pieces as lips and mushroom pieces as hair.
