Chraime Egg Boil

August 17, 2022 | by Micah Siva

Our Jewish version of the spicy egg boil.

I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the latest and greatest recipes to become Tiktok famous, dreaming up ways to put a unique, Jew-ish twist into the Tiktok universe.

I have to admit I was skeptical about this when I first saw it. Egg? In a buttery Cajun sauce? Trust me, I love an egg in my cholent, but I wasn’t sure about this one. But with over 147 million views on #eggboil… I had to try. Truthfully, I think I might make this weekly from now on.

Why? For one thing, it’s a simple recipe that is made in less than 30 minutes. Beyond the stick of butter, it’s relatively nutritious. Not only that, but it’s versatile – it can be eaten as a snack, spooned over top rice, or used to dip your challah into.

Inspired by the traditional Moroccan fish recipe called Chraime, I adapted the trendy spicy egg boil to make this incredible Jewish variation. Check out more viral tiktok recipes made Jewish here.
