remember when lorelai & rory gilmore devil egged jess' car (refresh memory here)?! THAT was the inspiration for today's blog post!
jess: someone egged my car
luke: these eggs are cooked. they're not raw eggs, they look like deviled eggs."
jess: someone devil egged my car?
luke: that IS paprika!
jess: someone prepared deviled eggs to throw at my car?!
luke: wow they must really hate you.
okay, sorry! before i go all gilmore girl crazy & start reciting all my favourite scenes, let's get back to the eggs. so happy march! with easter approaching i wanted to create a tasty brunch or appetizer recipe. i decided to go with a sweet & spicy combination, because i personally cannot handle straight up spice on it's own. plus, i didn't want just any old deviled egg. these turned out really delicious. these are the deviled eggs that made me actually like deviled eggs. i wasn't sure about how everyone felt about deviled eggs... do you love them, do you hate them? if you hate them, try these & ask yourself that question again! if you aren't a spice baby like me, serve with a drizzle of sriratcha sauce for an extra kick (dad, i'm looking at you). now brb while i go binge watch gilmore girls on netflix until i recieve the "are you still watching" screen & feel judged by my television.
- 6 large eggs, boiled & cooled
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon sriratcha
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 pinch paprika, plus more for sprinkling
- 1 small shallot, pureed*
- salt & pepper, to taste
- peel & slice hard boiled eggs in half, length wise. scoop out the yolks & place in a bowl.
- add mayo, sriratcha, honey, paprika, shallot, salt & pepper. whip until fluffy.
- pipe or spoonful mixture back into the egg white. refrigerate & serve!
note: it is important to puree the shallot if you plan on piping the filling, otherwise the piping bag may get clogged (i speak from experience!). if simply spooning mixture back into the egg white, skip this step.
