History of the TikTok Egg Boil:

The TikTok Egg Boil recipe has rapidly gained popularity on social media platforms, especially on TikTok, where it originated. The recipe is inspired by the traditional seafood boil recipe, which is a popular dish in the Southern United States. However, instead of seafood, eggs are used in this recipe, and the sauce is loaded with a combination of hot sauce, seafood seasoning, chicken broth, and fresh lemon juice.

Tips and Tricks for TikTok Egg Boil Recipe:

To get the perfect jammy eggs, make sure the eggs are at room temperature before boiling. Also, it's important to use a timer to ensure you achieve the desired level of doneness. Once the eggs are cooked, it's crucial to transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

To make the sauce, you can add more hot sauce or Old Bay seasoning if you prefer a spicier dish. You can also substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth or water, depending on your preference.

Tips for presenting the dish:

To present the dish, you can serve the eggs in a bowl or small plate and pour the sauce over them. You can garnish the dish with some fresh parsley, which not only adds flavor but also adds a pop of color to the dish. This recipe makes a delicious and visually appealing appetizer or snack that is perfect for any occasion.
