  6 servings
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
Ground black pepper
3/4 cup unsalted butter
12 hard cooked eggs, peeled and sliced lengthwise in half
6 small pita breads, warmed and cut horizontally in half or 2 cups cooked white rice (our preference)
Place the sesame seeds in a small skillet over medium heat and toast, stir or shake pan often, until golden, about 5 minutes. Empty into bowl and cool. Add the cumin, nutmeg, coriander, salt and pepper, set aside.

Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat until frothy. Add the eggs, cut side down, and cook until the eggs begin to turn brown, 5 to 6 minutes.

Turn the eggs and cook until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes more. While eggs are cooking, sprinkle them with the spice mixture.

Serve with pita bread or rice. Drizzle the butter remaining in the pan over the eggs.
