Featherbed Eggs

Lindsey McCue


I found a version of this recipe in a Minnesota cookbook and my husband has requested it often!

It's super easy to put together and the texture of the eggs really do turn out fluffy and feathered!!

Hope you enjoy!

*Note: I changed the spices.. The chives worked better for us.
