What is TikTok Egg Boil?
As you may have guessed there are several different versions of egg boil recipes on TikTok. Some of the recipes range from a little bit crazy such as creating an omelet in a plastic bag rather than using a sous vide, but there are some good recipes out there like the one we are going to share with you today.
What does the egg boil recipe on TikTok consist of?
The egg boil recipes on TikTok range all over the place. The main ones are made with boiled eggs that have had the shells removed and are served with different types of sauces on them.
In preparation of sharing this recipe with you today, we did some research to find out what all the different recipes are on TikTok. When it comes to egg boil recipes shared on TikTok, many of them are served with a ton of butter. For example, the most popular video has one cup of butter in the sauce and only eight eggs.
This is a little steep on the butter content. We have adapted this recipe, and we believe we have made it better, and we hope that you will like it too!
TikTok Egg Boil and Sauce Ingredients
Eggs. You can use as many eggs as you want, but our recipe is built around six, so if you want to use more or less, make sure you increase or decrease the sauce recipe as well.
These eggs should be boiled using a method of your preference, we will go into more details below, give instruction for getting them cooled, and the shells removed.
Butter. We recommend using salted butter; however, you can use unsalted butter if you prefer. We will be melting the butter in a pan so you can use it directly from the fridge or have the butter at room temperature.
Garlic. Garlic helps to enhance the overall flavors of this recipe. You can use minced garlic, or you can use a fresh garlic clove, and mince it yourself. Either type of garlic works well.
Onion. We recommend finely dicing a small or medium size onion and then sautéing it in a skillet along with the garlic for a little bit before you add the seasonings.
When you mix onion and garlic together it helps to give your egg boil and a nice overall flavor.
Suggested Seasonings. We recommend including red chili flakes, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, garlic salt, salt, and pepper, as the seasonings for your recipe.
However, the fun thing about making your own dish, is that you can add whatever seasonings you enjoy.
Brown sugar. Using brown sugar to sweeten the overall dish and add a slightly caramelized texture to your sauce. If you do not have brown sugar, you can substitute it with granulated sugar, honey, or maple syrup as well.
Lime Juice. You can use either lime juice or lemon juice, but we do recommend using fresh fruit and squeezing your own juice for the best overall flavor.
Chicken Broth. Using chicken broth in the sauce helps to make it much saucier, and gives it an added flavor. If you would like lower sodium content, then feel free to use vegetable stock or low sodium chicken stock.
How to make Jammy Eggs Recipe
Jammy eggs are essentially soft-boiled eggs, meaning they are eggs that are boiled, but I still have a soft center to them. For this recipe, you can either make these soft-boiled eggs or you can follow the steps in the following section to make hard-boiled eggs.
Use a medium size sauce pan filled most of the way with water over medium heat. Bring the water to a rapid boil.
When your water has come to a rapid boil, remove some eggs from your fridge and gently lower them into the boiling water.
When your eggs are added adjust the heat so that it is a gentle boil, typically medium to medium-low heat will do this.
Boil the eggs for 6 ½ minutes.
While the eggs are boiling take a large bowl and fill it with ice cubes and cold water.
When the eggs are done boiling, use a slotted spoon to gently lift them out of the boiling water and some merge them into the ice water. Allow them to chill until they are just slightly warm to the touch.
To remove the shells, start at the wider end of the egg and gently crack it. This is typically where the air bubble can be found, so you will have an easier time starting to peel the eggs from this end. Remove the shell, and rinse the eggs under cold water so that all of the shell residue is gone.
Set the eggs aside while you prepare the sauce.
How to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs
Now, if you prefer hard-boiled eggs rather than Jammy eggs, you can follow any of these different methods below to prepare hard-boiled eggs for your egg boil TikTok recipe.
To air fry eggs so that they turn out hard boiled, remove the eggs from your fridge and place them gently into your air fryer basket.
Close the air fryer and air fry your eggs for approximately 13 minutes at 275°F (135°C). If you would rather cook them slowly you can also air fry eggs at 270°F (132.2°C) for approximately 17 minutes.
Please Note that the air fryer times may vary depending upon your specific air fryer. Some air fryers cook faster than others.
Once your eggs have finished cooking carefully remove them from the air fryer, and place them into a bowl of ice and cold water. Submerge them in this cold water until they are just warm to the touch.
Carefully crack the eggs starting at the wide end where the air bubble resides, and peel back the shell. Rinse the eggs under cold water to remove any remaining shell.
You can also smoke the eggs on a smoker for added flavor if desired. To do this preheat your smoker to 325°F (163°C) and place the eggs directly on the smoker grates once the grill is preheated.
Smoke the eggs at 325°F (163°C) for approximately 30 minutes.
When they are finished smoking, remove the eggs off of your smoker and place them in a bowl of ice-cold water. Allow them to submerge until the eggs are cold, then peel off the shell.
Of course, you can also hard boil the eggs by boiling them in water on your stovetop.
To do this you want to fill a medium sized saucepan with water, enough so that your eggs are covered.
Add your eggs to the pan of water, and place over medium-high heat until the water comes to a rolling boil.
Once the water is boiling, cover the pan with a lid, and continue at a gentle boil for approximately 4 to 12 minutes or until your eggs are done to your liking.
When the eggs have finished boiling, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the water, and place them into a bowl of ice-cold water. Let them chill in the water until they are just warmed the touch.
Gently crack the eggs and peel off the shell. Rinse each egg under cold water then set aside so that you’re ready to add them to your sauce.
