An Egg on the Ritz
- 2hard-boiled eggs
- 3tablespoons tomato ketchup
- 2drops Tabasco sauce (I use 3 drops, but is purely optional, but good!)
- 12Ritz crackers
- 1⁄8teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄8teaspoon pepper (course grind)
- 1dried leaf basil (sliced) (optional)
Slice hard cooked eggs evenly.
Stir together ketchup and Tabasco sauce.
Place slice egg on top of Ritz, add a small dollop of ketchup-Tabasco sauce to top. Garnish with a fresh basil leave, sliced.
Hard-boiled egg method – place the eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by a 1/2-inch. Bring water to a very gentle boil. Turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for exactly (in pot) 12 minutes. After the time has passed place cooked eggs in a bowl of ice, and ice water until ready for use. Peel shell under cold water.
