1 recipe will fill 1⁄2 a Large tray


  1. Hard boil your eggs (about 9 minutes in boiling water) When done, replace hot water with cold water and let sit. Once cool enough to handle, peel and dice the eggs.
  2. In a mixing bowl add greek yogurt, dijon mustard, diced celery, peas, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, turmeric, diced pickle spears, and diced eggs. Mix well.
  3. Spread evenly on a lined tray, add dividers made into 10 portioned servings.
  4. Pre-freeze
  5. Freeze Dry
  6. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)


I did not use dividers, but wish I would have used dividers configured for 10 to help me portion this out.

Cycle Time:

I did not Pre-Freeze my cycle time was just over 60 hours for 5 full trays in a Large Freeze Dryer with Premier Pump.


I used about 1⁄3 Cup of Cold Water for about 1/10th of a large tray amount. Let sit for about 5 minutes.

* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray

Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.

  • Can diced apples be added?
    Freeze Drying Cookbook replied:
    Apples freeze dry fine, so I don’t see why you couldn’t add diced apples.
