Fermented Pickled Egg Sandwich (Cool Hand Luke Sandwich)

My husband gets these weird ideas, some time they work out and some time they are quite gross. I have never heard of pickled eggs before, so I was quite skeptical at first when he wanted to make a fermented pickled egg. I thought our house was going to smell horrible, It didn’t and while pickled eggs are a little salty for my tastes, making an egg salad sandwich with them is quite fantastic. They add a little twang to this classic.

Now he suggested that I should make an inspired post for this and mention how “No man can eat 50 Eggs.” A line from a movie called cool hand luke. A movie I have also never seen but was told to include it because his dad would get a kick out of it. Well, here the reference. For all those who are like me and never seen it, I embedded a few links at the bottom of the page to the egg clips.
