6 Fun Ways to Satisfy Your Salted Egg Craving

6 Fun Ways to Satisfy Your Salted Egg Craving

It's been a couple of years since the salted egg trend burst onto the food scene, but it seems like this is a craze that's here to stay.
From savory snacks to indulgent desserts, the creamy, rich, salty-sweet, umami-filled flavors of salted egg has surely won hearts around the world.


But this fairly new trend has been around for a quite a while.

In Filipino cuisine, salted egg (itlog na maalat) is a staple breakfast side dish, usually served with cut-up tomatoes, cured meats (like tapa and tocino) and seafood like sun-dried milkfish (daing na bangus).
