Onion Eggs

Have you ever heard of onion eggs? Of course you have not. I hadn't either until my mother-in-law introduced them to me several years. Making these egg creations each Easter is something I look forward to every year. They turn out beautifully! Let me tell you how....
Step One-Buy a dozen eggs...or so.


Step Two - Wrap onion peels all around the eggs. What you'll need is some old rags or an old t-shirt you can tear into squares. Place the egg in the square and start layering onion peels. Just grab a bunch and "hide" the egg inside all the onion peels. Yellow onion peels make golden eggs and red onion peels a pinkish egg.


Step Three-Fold the white rag around the egg peels and make it into a ball. Wrap rubber bands around to secure.


Step Four- Boil your eggs. ***My husband taught me years ago how to make the perfect boiled egg. Place your eggs in cold water and bring to a boil. As soon as the water starts boiling, turn off the heat. Leave the pan on that eye for exactly 20 minutes. After that time, your eggs will be perfect in the middle and will look like this....
