I remember when I was growing up – anytime I saw Deviled Eggs served at a party – I thought it meant that I was at a very ‘fancy’ occasion! But deviled eggs are actually quite easy to make!
Deviled eggs are simply hard boiled eggs that have been peeled and sliced in half lengthwise. Then, the yolks are mixed with mayonnaise, mustard and other seasonings and piped back into the sliced white halves of the egg.
While we think that simple is best when it comes to making a classic egg salad, when making deviled eggs we think a little more flavor and seasonings are called for to make this a memorable recipe! But – it can be easy to overpower the flavor of the egg yolks with too much mayonnaise, mustard and other ingredients!
In our opinion, the perfect deviled eggs have just a hint of tartness (our recipe gets that from a mild champagne vinegar), as well as small amounts of the other flavors and seasonings to complement the taste of the egg yolk as well as the egg whites. You also want to make sure that your egg yolk filling isn’t too soft or soggy – otherwise you won’t get that decorative effect when you pipe the filling back into the egg halves.
Served on top of some micro greens and garnished with a little bit of chives or other herbs – your party guests will be quite impressed by this ‘fancy’ but very easy and delicious dish!
