Eggs with Herb Sour Cream Sauce

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

This is a very quick and easy vegetarian dish, originated in Frankfurt Germany, that you’ll enjoy with your friends and family. The sauce is usually made of seven different kinds of herbs: borage, chervil, cress, parsley, salad burnet, sorrel and chives. I couldn't find some of them, so I just use a mixture of parsley, chervil and chives. You can also include dill, lemon balm, and tarragon.
Traditionally it's served with cold hard-boiled eggs and boiled (or baked) potatoes during the spring and summer seasons when the many herbs required by the recipe are found in abundance.

Eggs with Herb Sauce - Eier mit grüner Kräutersauce

adapted from Küchen Götter
  • 1 bunch / 25 g Parsley
  • 1 bunch / 20 g Chervil
  • 1 bunch / 15 g Chives
  • 150 g Plain whole milk yoghurt
  • 200 g Schmand (German sour cream)
  • 2/3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 4-6 Medium eggs, hard-boiled
  1. Wash and clean all the herbs. Spread them out on a dry towel or kitchen paper. Gently pat off water. Finely chop all the herbs.
  2. In a large bowl, add in yoghurt, sour cream, and mustard. Stir until combined and smooth. Stir in chopped herbs and season with salt and black pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 more minutes.
  3. Meanwhile bring a saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Using a slotted spoon, carefully lower eggs into water one at a time. Cook 6 minues, maintaining a gentle boil. Immediately transfer eggs with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice water and stir until cool enough to handle. Drain, pat dry, and peel eggs.
  4. Spoon the sauce onto plates. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise and arrange them on the sauce. Garnish with fresh herbs.

The sour cream with herbs must have added an extra punch to the eggs, yummy!!

Easyfoodsmith 22/3/21 06:36

That is interesting coz I have never tried eggs this way. But with those flavours I can imagine this must be delicious.

Yvonne@fiction-books 22/3/21 07:08

At first glance I though 'Oh No!' poached eggs, yuk! But I was so pleased to discover hard-boiled eggs, which strangely, is the only way I like them! This is just my kind of snack dish, although I must admit that I have never thought of having them with potatoes before. I quite like the idea of some buttered herb, baby new potatoes, as a summer choice!

Thanks for sharing :)
