Pickled eggs

Pickled eggs are a classic dish at an Easter lunch celebration in Sønderjylland, although earlier the speciality could also be found on the bar in many pubs. In both cases, pickled eggs are often washed down with beer and schnapps.

The original name in German is Solei – Sole = pickle (or brine), Ei = egg.
