Soviet Cuisine. Light Appetizers: Stuffed Eggs

Esteemed Readers, I suppose that stuffed eggs is a classical international appetizer popular anywhere. In the Soviet Union they were an essential part of the festive table. Here is the Soviet view how they were made. I provide you with 3 versions of this delicious snack. Nota bene: cod liver paste considered to be a great delicacy in the Soviet times.

Version I  Onion, verdure, cheese Ingredients:

Eggs -5 pcs.,  grated cheese – 30 gr., white bread – 60 gr., onion -1/2 piece, milk for stuffing – 2-4 tbs., oil for frying – 2 tbs., some parsley or dill, salt, pepper.

Preparation:

Boil the eggs, peel them, cut in two pieces. Remove yolks. Put the oil in a pan. Braise the verdure for about 10 minutes (medium-low heat). Chop it well. Chop & braise the onion about about 7 minutes (medium-low heat). Keep the white bread in milk for some time. Smash yolks, add onion, verdure, white bread, 1 tbs. of milk, salt, pepper. Mix well. Fill the egg halves with stuffing. Place them into a pan, cover with cheese & bake for about 10 minutes in the oven (medium heat).

Version II Mushrooms & cheese Ingredients:

Eggs – 8 pcs, mushrooms (better champignons) boiled or fried – 400 gr., garlic – 3 cloves, cheese – 100 gr., mayonnaise – on demand.

Preparation:

Boil the eggs, peel them, cut in two pieces. Remove yolks. Blend mushrooms, chopped garlic, chopped cheese & the yolks. Add some mayonnaise. Fill the egg halves with stuffing. Decorate & serve.

Version III Cod liver paste Ingredients:

Eggs – 6 pcs, cod liver paste – 100 gr., mayonnaise – 1 tbs., some pepper, some sprouts of spring onion, pieces of lemon – on demand.

Preparation:

Boil the eggs, peel them, cut in two pieces. Remove yolks. Blend the cod liver paste, yolks, mayonnaise & pepper. Fill the egg halves with stuffing. Decorate with chopped spring onion. If you desire, add a tiny piece of lemon on the top of any egg half.

Enjoy the meal!🍲🥧

    As a child did not like eggs, I guess due to my mother, that worried I was very lean, and the doctor prescribed eggs to fatten me, and of course got fed up with them, not until I was a teenager started to enjoy eggs again.🤦‍♂️😒🤷‍♂️

        I like huevos ahogados and huevos rancheros, (Drowned eggs and eggs ranch Ssyle) but do not eat them frequently I should, but here eggs it’s a breakfast dish, and hardly do breakfast, usually I only have one meal a day, and because in the US you have the main meal as dinner I got used to eat somewhere between 5PM to 8PM so I forget to do eggs.🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️😉

        How interesting, dear Mr. Brigido. Italians also omit breakfast, but the Russians never. 🙂
