What to do with your Hard-boiled Easter Eggs - Deviled Eggs!

2 years ago

Hey Luuuxers,

Are you wondering what to do with all those leftover hard-boiled eggs from easter? Since we always end up with a ton of leftovers, I decided to make deviled eggs, to switch things up a bit.

It`s actually quite easy and quick.

For this recipe I used 8 hardboiled eggs.

You crack and peel all the eggs and slice in half lengthwise. With a spoon, carefully remove the yolk into a bowl, while taking care not to break the whites.

Once you have removed all the yolks, you can start to liven it up. I used mayonnaise, which is the traditional additive, but I figure you can also experiment with things like sour cream, creme fraiche, marscapone cheese or cream cheese. I was boring this time and just added a few tablespoons of mayo, but I`m considering trying this again soon with softened cream cheese.
I also added some spicy mustard (about a tablespoon) as well as some seasoning including salt, garlic powder, white pepper (black pepper makes the filling look unappealing with the dark flecks) and tumeric (which also helps make the yolks look yellow-er).

Once you are done, combine everything and whisk until it is very smooth.

Now you need to fill the whites again, and the easiest way to do this is to pipe the yolk mixture back in. You don`t need any fancy tools for this, you can use a regular sandwich bag, fill it up with the mixture and simply snip a corner away and squeeze the filling from the whole. Make sure to fill the white generously :)

I also topped mine with a little bit of traditional paprika as well as some cayenne for some extra heat (though you don`t have to). I was hoping to also add some chopped chives, but we didn`t have any, so I just added a small sprig of fresh parsley to each for some brightness and freshness.

I don`t know why deviled eggs have this `70s` or `retro` sort of stigma attached to them but I happen to enjoy them. And I think they are the perfect Easter leftover solution!

Do you have any go-to recipes for leftover eggs?
