In honor of National Egg Day here is an old-time favorite – Deviled Eggs !
I have done them 2 ways both hot but they start with the same base recipe.
10 whole eggs steamed or boiled whatever way you are most comfortable cooking them, but make sure you don’t overcook them.
Cut the eggs in half and scoop out the yolks into another bowl.
Mix into the smashed egg yolks the following: 1/3 cup of good mayonnaise, 1 tsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp yellow mustard, S&P to taste, and since it is supposed to be spicy, a little granulated garlic.
Now it is up to you just how spicy you want to get some of them. I topped with tamed jalapeño pepper slices for my wife and some I topped with a healthy squirt of Sriracha Sauce for me!
Put them in the fridge for a couple of hours so they would be nice and cold.
Sprinkle them with some Cajun seasoning as a new twist on the classic paprika garnish.
And enjoy them by the pool with a few beers.
Happy National Egg Day Everyone 10/11/13!
