Russian stuffed eggs
There are as many different Russian stuffed eggs recipes as there are grandmothers, and most families have their own version which is handed down from one generation to the next. Mushrooms are commonly used for stuffing hard boiled eggs, to make a wonderful and tasty appetizer or snack for your party. Other Russian households make devilled eggs with hard boiled eggs stuffed with cheese and vegetables.

Hard boiled eggs in Pirozhki
These are small flaky buns, that are usually stuffed with either meat or fruit. These buns are a popular, traditional, Russian snack. Although most people stuff them, most often, with mince or fruits and vegetables, you can make a mean pirozhki by substituting the filling with hard boiled eggs. In both sweet and savory fillings, a substitution or addition of eggs is possible.
Sweet or savory stuffings
The sweet pirozhki often contain fresh or stewed fruit, like apples, cherries, and apricots, either by themselves or combined with cottage cheese, or jam. Whether these will go well with eggs is your decision. Take a call on what combination of tastes you want, before you incorporate the eggs. The savory version on the other hand lends itself well to eggs, complementing the meat, fish, vegetables, oatmeal, or rice that are the common fillings.
Blini stuffed with hard boiled eggs

Think about all the ways in which you want to dress the dish up, add body, or make the serving a more rounded meal. Diced onions, shredded carrot, shredded cabbage, garlic, chives, and herbs care all good additions to the stuffing.
