Place all the ingredients except the hard-boiled eggs in a covered pot and
boil for 15 minutes. Place the hard-boiled eggs in a glass jar and cover
them with hot pickling mixture until the eggs are completely covered. If
there is not enough vinegar, you may add some hot water to the vinegar
solution. Marinate the eggs in this solution, in the refrigerator, for 7
days before serving. The longer they marinate, the more robust the flavor!October 20, 2007 at 12:38 pm #53044

3 Dozen Hard Boiled Eggs
1 Large Onion
1 Large Bottle (12 oz.) Hot Sauce (Franks, Louisiana, etc)
1 Small Bottle (5 oz.) Tabasco
Various Hot Peppers – Sliced *
Boil and peel eggs. While eggs are boiling, pour Tabasco and Hot sauce into container large enough to hold eggs, onion and peppers. Cut onion and hot peppers into slices. Add eggs, and cover with vinegar. Let eggs soak a minimum of 1 week for best results. The longer they soak the hotter they get.
I usually make 2 batches throughout the football season, one at the beginning and one when they run out. I have had them soaking for a whole season before, but the egg loses its texture over time
