What no deviled eggs thread?Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)

I used eggs that were about a week shy of their "best by" date ... so they were NOT
too fresh ... I let them come to room temperature before adding them to cool water
and bringing it all to a boil ... promptly turned off the fire and let the eggs sit in the
hot water for 25 min. ... dumped out the hot water and replaced with cold ... then
refrigerated ...


I was surprised to read this. Aren't your eggs way over cooked?

I drop cold eggs in cold water, bring to a boil, cover and let sit for 12 minutes and the run cold water over them until the water in the pot is completely chilled. Then pop the eggs in the fridge and peel them later. The only time I have ever had a problem was when I used farm fresh eggs. They were crazy hard to peel.

As for the deviled eggs themselves. I am a purist, Mayo, a little mustard, salt and pepper and paprika on top. Every once in a while for a change, I will add a little curry powder.

Had these at a Halloween party this weekend, and they were quite tasty
(I'm guessing at the ingredient amounts because the hostess was quite drunk and could only tell me what was in them!)

Fiesta Deviled Eggs

Mix yolk with :
2 T Southwestern Ranch Dip
1 T finely chopped green onion
1 T chopped green chilis (she used canned which would add to the moisture content)
1 T minced red bell pepper
1 Tsp finely chopped cilantro

making hard-boiled eggs again today ... followed Ms. Micki's advice and
peeled after they'd been sitting in cool water (AFTER boiling) ... I waited
until they were cooled off but still warm ... they peeled MUCH better
than the ones I did last time ...

maybe my eggs last time were a little too fresh ... I buy brown free-range
eggs and I've always thought they were fresher than the more commercial
eggs ...

I'm not making deviled eggs today ... I had bought a jar of FANTASTIC
pickled beets ... boiled the eggs, peeled 'em, washed 'em then dried the
eggs off with a paper towel and dropped them into the jar of picked beet
juice ... I've been shaking them up occasionally so they'll be a consistent
color ... they're quite beautiful already!

purple pickled eggs will give the kiddles something else to think about on
Thanksgiving!!! I wonder which (if any) of them will TRY grandma's
crazy purple pickled eggs! (we used to sell these in a restaurant we owned
in the '80s) ...

So, wait, let me get this straight: You leave the boiled eggs, which have been shelled, in a jar of leftover beet juice. You'll keep them that way and devil them come Thanksgiving?

you dont know what your missing.red beet eggs are the bomb..........i usually add about half a cup of cider vinegar and a tablespoon or so of "hoagie spread"........ a mix of ground up hot and sweet peppers.......i try to let them sit a week before eating.............notice i said try......

making deviled eggs from red beet eggs is mighty dang good too........they are ALWAYS the first tray emptied

I am going to have to try this with the eggs and pickled beet juice. I make awesome pickled beets if I say so myself. They are always a huge hit wherever I take/serve them. Neat idea to try. Thanks for this one folks!
P.S. - Missing my foodies! xx

With avacado as an alternative healthy fat I've experimented with a couple variations. I don't care for hard yokes so I discard them, make Guacomole with a couple of chopped tomatos added. Fill the eggs, sprinkle with finely diced ham and paprika. I call these Dr. Seuss eggs. While searching the net I found a site that put extra green die in the guacomole. Fill the egg halves and place one slice of black olive to create an eye. Use Sriracha hot sauce and draw squiggly lines to make them appear bloodshot. These were a big hit at my youngest brother's 50th Birthday party.

I sprinkle red chili or cayenne powder over them instead of the traditional paprika!



This isn;t a deviled egg recipe, but is close enough and also uses avocados


Baked Avocado with egg
Ingredients:
6Whole avocados
1 dozen Eggs
Cayenne pepper (or any spice of your choice)
Cheese (optional)

Cut the avocado in half lenghtwise. Remove the stone from the avocado. Scoop out a little more avocado to increase the size of the stone's crater. Lay the 12 avocado halves flat, flesh-up. Crack an egg into the crater. Sprinkle with Cayenne pepper (cheese too if you desire). Bake in the oven at 450 degrees until egg is cooked to the level you like. Makes 12 servings. Enjoy!!

Hey Molly,
I raise hens for eggs to sell, lovely big brown organic fed eggs, to "dye" for, orange orange yolks.....
Can't keep them on the property, sell everything I can produce, so no old eggs to make boiled eggs with.
After years of trail and error have found a sure way to boil and peel fresh eggs.
Put a hand full of salt in the pot, yes, a big handful, I use coarse pickling as it is cheaper, pop in the eggs, boil for 3-5 minutes, dump hot water out and immediately fill pot with cold cold water and break the shells by rolling them hard against the side of the sink or pot. Keep that water cold til the eggs are cold, then those shells will just slip off.
Haven't had a failure yet since I started doing this.
Has anyone had German deviled eggs, my daughter in laws mom makes them with oil and hot mustard, different and I was horrified watching her do this to my lovely eggs, but they were really good......So, not sure I have ever met a deviled egg I didn't like.

I, too, used to have chickens ... we had just moved to a small "farm" of about
20 acres when I went to a swap meet ... saw a darling little hen with five chicks
and bought them all including the cage for $5 ... went home, turned them loose
and they slept in the trees for safety ... (turned out to be South American
"fighting" chickens ... ooops!)

city me then went to the feed store to buy chicken feed cuz I didn't know they
didn't NEED to be fed, being fully capable of taking care of themselves, eating
what they found ... at the feed store, I saw some baby black barred Plymouth
rocks which, as anyone knows, are COMPLETELY irresistable! I had a custom
cage built which included a little dorm room with a light for warmth and a
play yard ... when they were big enough, I let them out ... but ... when I went to
buy more chicken feed, they had Rhode Island red chicks ...

completely out of hand ... I ended up with more custom buildings, more varieties
of chickens, all happily running around free ... and I was selling eggs ... mostly
brown ... at that same swap meet ...

I found innumerable ways of making deviled eggs! but preferred the traditional
hard boiled egg, mayonnaise, mustard, salt variety with a sprinkle of spiced
pepper on top ...

we had 37 almond trees, too ... but that's another story and more recipes!

oh I can relate to all the cool breeds of chickens, it can get out of hand. Now I have my own incubator so look out!

Almond trees, so jealous, most exotic tree I can have here in Canada is a Peach tree, assorted apples, plums.
