When it comes to deviled eggs, simpler is better. Their creamy goodness stands on it’s own and doesn’t require a lot of unnecessary fuss. Then you can gussy them up with an array of different garnishes.
Tips for making deviled eggs
- Don’t overcook the eggs.
- Place eggs in a pan and fill with cold water to cover. Always start with cold water. Bring to a boil the turn down the heat to a low simmer and cook 10-12 minutes.
- Once the eggs are cooked, immediately drain off the hot water and cool the eggs down with cold running water. I crack the eggs a little bit at this point. It helps release the membrane from the egg.
- Let them sit in the cold water until cooled
- To peel the eggs, start at the large end and work your way around. The shell tends to release better that way
- I mix my deviled egg filling in the food processor. This makes them nice and creamy. Just don’t over-mix or your emulsion will break. Just a few pulses and scrape the sides and pulse again.
- Pipe the filling into each egg white half using a pastry bag with a star tip
- Garnish with your favorite toppings. I used a sprinkle of smoked paprika, fine diced red pepper and chopped parsley. But you can use whatever you like. The possibilities are endless.
- Smoked salmon
- Chopped black olives
- Chopped fresh herbs such as dill, parsley, tarragon
- Pickled red onion
- Gherkins or cornichons
- Pinot Grigio
- German Riesling
- Sauvignon Blanc
