Egg butter (Finnish: munavoi, Estonian: munavõi) is a mixture of butter and chopped hard boiled eggs. It is a well known spread in Finnish cuisine and Estonian cuisine.

In Finland, egg butter is typically spread over hot Karelian pasties.[1][2] In Estonia, egg butter and leib (dark rye bread) are traditionally included in the Easter Sunday meal.[3]
