I. Love. Deviled. Eggs.
I always request deviled eggs from my grandmother when we are having a family get together, and while mine will never be as good as hers… (even if I have the recipe, because lets face it we can never duplicate grandma’s cookin’) these come pretty darn close on the delicious scale!!
With the right balance of textures and flavors, these little bites of heaven are on point! Don’t take my word for it, try them out yourself 😉
Casey’s “Egg”cellent Deviled Eggs –
6 Hardboiled eggs (a how-to on the bottom of the page, or buy them already hardboiled!)
4 tablespoons of lite mayo
1 teaspoon of dijon mustard
1 teaspoon of horseradish
1/2 tablespoon of dill pickle, minced (I use the snackems)
1/8 teaspoon of pickle juice
1/4 teaspoon of salt
12 thin slices of english cucumber (aka seedless, the long thin one in the plastic)
paprika to sprinkle
1. Slice your hardboiled eggs in half, scoop out the yolk into the food processor and set the whites aside.
2. Add your mustard, horseradish, mayo, pickle, pickle juice and salt into the food processor along with the yolks. Blend until smooth. (If you do not own a food processor, do not panic!! Simple use a fork and/or whisk!) Place mixture into a ziplock and seal, cut the corner off to create a piping bag. (Awesome tip, do this with any icing or puree you want to pipe neatly!)
3. Arrange your egg white s on the platter, place one thin cucumber slice into each “bowl” of the egg. Next use your “piping bag” to squeeze some of your mixture into each egg.
4. Top with a little sprinkle of paprika, and enjoy!! Refrigerate if you are not serving immediately or any leftovers (which I doubt you will have haha)
The ingredients in this recipe may make you question if I am pregnant, I am not.. They mix well together and will give you just the right amount of heat to create a delicious Deviled Egg! You will not regret trying these out!!
In fact.. I bet you wind up having to make them for every party you go to!! 😉
The cucumber gives these a great texture and is very eye-catching against the white and yellow in the egg.. The paprika helps to bring out the horseradish and also is nice to the eye along with the other colors.
All in all this will be a big hit with the family and friends.. My son LOVES eggs and he would eat just these for dinner.. The amount of protein in them, along with the cucumber for some veggie action makes it a great treat for everyone!
How-To : Hard Boiled Eggs
Place your eggs into a saucepan. Cover with cold water until it goes about 1 inch over the top of your eggs. Turn on high, let it come to a boil and boil for 8 minutes. Turn it off and allow it to sit in the hot water for an additional 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Peel as soon as your hands can tolerate the heat, as the colder they are the harder it is to separate the skin from the egg. If needed you can peel under running water. If they become resistant, let them sit in warm water again to help separate the inside layer.
I hope you try this recipe, and others!
