Egyptian Twice-Cooked Eggs
- 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 the pan often, until the seeds are golden, about 5 minutes. Empty into a bowl and cool. Add the cumin, nutmeg, coriander, salt and pepper, set aside.
Melt the 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, 5-6 minutes.
Turn the eggs and cook until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes more. While the 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.
