Hard-Boiled Eggs with Dukkah

A bowl of hard-boiled eggs with dukkah in a bowl next to it.

Dukkah is an Egyptian dry spice blend that has a multitude of uses—as a salad sprinkle, a seasoning on lamb chops, or a dip with bread and olive oil. We serve it as a pre-dinner bar snack with hard-boiled eggs.–Shelagh Ryan
