Beets pickled eggs stuffed with mascarpone are beautifully presentable and interesting-tasting stuffed eggs. Start preparing beets pickled eggs by making a vinegar solution. I make it with water, vinegar, sugar, salt and juicy red beet, putting all these ingredients on the heat and simmer it for a minute, then cool it down, pour it into a jar and add the boiled eggs.
I pickle the eggs for about 8 hours, but of course you can pickle them longer. Do it carefully though, because if they are pickled for too long, most of the egg surface will turn red. For a visual effect, I like when the egg white has only a bright pink border and a white center, so I do not pickle them over the above-mentioned time. Once the eggs are pickled, I stuff them with cream made from mascarpone, boiled egg yolks and fresh basil leaves. I believe that a simple stuffing works best.
Pickled eggs prepared in this way are perfect when served as a cold snack at gatherings with family and friends. This year, I will also make them for Easter, because in my home everyone likes their taste. I recommend you the following recipe for beets pickled eggs and I hope you will like them.

- 2 tablespoons of crystal sugar

How to make beets pickled eggs.
Pour water and vinegar into a pot, add salt and sugar. Peel the beetroot, cut into thin slices and place it in the same pot. Transfer the pot on the heat, bring the vinegar solution to a boil and simmer it for a minute from the moment it starts boiling. Next, remove it from the heat and let it cool down.
Place some of the beetroot slices on the bottom of a tall jar, then add the hard-boiled eggs, cover them with the remaining beetroot slices and pour in the pickling juice over the whole thing. Put the jar in the refrigerator for 8 to 10 hours. After that, remove the eggs from the pickling, dry them gently with a paper towel and cut each one in half. Remove the yolk from each half of the egg with a teaspoon, place it in a cup, and put the egg whites on a plate.
Add the mascarpone cheese, a pinch of salt and finely chopped basil leaves to the egg yolks in the cup. Using a blender, mix the ingredients into a cream with a uniform consistency. Put the cream into a confectionery sleeve with a nozzle at it’s end and fill in the egg whites with the cream.
Good to know when making beets pickled eggs.
I boiled the eggs for 9 minutes in water with a little salt. After boiling the eggs, I let them cool down, and once they are cold, I transferred them into a picking solution.
You can replace the mascarpone cheese with cream cheese.
If you don’t have fresh basil at home, you can use fresh parsley instead.
