Deviled Eggs w/ Pickled Green Tomatoes
Everybody loves a deviled egg or two. Below is a basic recipe. Top it with a little “chow-chow” (pickled veggies, relish, -or in my case- sweet homemade pickled green tomatoes from a friend) and a sprinkle of paprika for color.
- Prep Time: 20 Minutes
- Cook Time: 20 Minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: 4 (3 eggs each)
- Category: Appetizer
- Method: Stovetop
- Cuisine: American
- 6 eggs
- 1 teaspoon yellow or dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise + more to taste
- pinch salt
- pinch pepper
- 1/3 cup store bought relish (pickles or vegetable), chopped – as garnish
- pinch paprika – as garnish
- Add eggs in a single layer to a pot, add cold water to cover by ~ 1 1/2 inches and put on the stovetop. Start a timer for 17 minutes. Turn burner to high and bring to a boil, covered. Reduce heat to low, uncover, and simmer for the remainder of the time.
- Rinse them in cool water or blanch them in an ice bath (preferred so they stop cooking) and place in the refrigerator until cool enough to peel.
- Peel the eggs, cut in half, and scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Set the whites aside. Mash up all the yolks with a fork and add all ingredients. I like to use a Potato ricer to make faster and smoother work of mashing the eggs. Add more mayo if you want it creamier. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Spoon the mixture into a ziploc bag. Squeeze the air out and seal. Cut out a little corner of the ziploc bag and use it like a pastry bag to fill up the egg whites. Garnish with relish or chow-chow of your choice and dust with paprika. Happy Eating! Beckie
- Older eggs are generally easier to peel, so use your older eggs first.
- Eggs aren’t peeling and playing nice? Bummer… Take a breathe and do the best you can. The best advice for the most consistency I can give is to plunge the cooked eggs in ice water and let sit at least 20 minutes. Gently try to crack the whole egg with a lot of gentle pushes on the shell. When it’s all cracked, find your opening and peel away.
Things In My Kitchen:
- Potato ricer – this makes the creamiest / smoothest mashed deviled eggs & mashed potatoes.
