Deviled eggs with cayenne

Easter egg hunts and summer picnic potlucks. I have been known to devour a dozen Bacon Bleu Littl’ Devils in one sitting. Deviled eggs are easy to make and are always a hit at gatherings. What’s so “deviled” about deviled eggs? Just the little bit of spice from the paprika and either cayenne or Tabasco that you add to the filling.

Boiled and grilled eggs

You’ll need hard-cooked wicked smokey bacon deviled eggs that are easy to peel when making deviled eggs! We’ve discovered that steaming, rather than boiling, is the perfect way to make easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs.

The hot steam penetrates the porous shells of the eggs, separating the shells from the eggs just enough to make them easy to remove.

You can steam eggs in the same pan that you would boil them in; the difference is that you use much less water and cook them for a few minutes longer. You may use or not use a steaming rack. In a pressure cooker, you can quickly steam eggs.

The eggs yolk easy recipes

Simply pipe the egg yolk mayonnaise filling into the egg whites with a star-tipped piping bag to make deviled eggs extra attractive (or cut off the corner of a plastic sandwich bag). Enjoy it with honey jalapeno baked chicken.

Fill a resealable plastic bag with the filling and pipe it into the egg whites (just snip the corner of the bag to pipe the filling into the eggs). These deviled eggs can be made up to a day ahead of time.

It’s better to eat the eggs the day after they’ve been assembled and served. This recipe can easily be multiplied.

Delicious deviled eggs

I give traditional deviled eggs a kick of horseradish to give them a Passover makeover with pineapple ham jalapeno casserole—an ingredient that represents the bitterness of Egyptian slavery and is a traditional Seder plate staple. Minced shallots aren’t especially representative of anything, but they do give the creamy filling a lot of flavors and a little crunch!

We didn’t serve appetizers before reading the Haggadah at our Seder dinners when I was a child. We used to get antsy at the dinner table when we listened to the tale of how the slaves fled Egypt. I would have been one happy kid if these deviled eggs had been passed around beforehand!
