In my last post I wrote about some food ideas for a 60s themed party. And I presented you the deviled eggs. Now, I want to show you how you can make those delicious nibbles. Well, the amount of eggs you will make is completely up to you – but be aware that they are yummy!
– 6 hard boiled eggs
– yellow mustard
– red bell pepper
– spring onion
– salt & pepper
Start by boiling your eggs until they are fully cooked. I like to put them in a pot of cold water and add a teaspoon of salt into the water. This makes the water boil faster. After 5-8 minutes you can take them away from the stove and let cold water rinse over them. Now, you can peel and cut them in half (length wise).
Afterwards, remove the yolks carefully with a tablespoon. Place the yolks in a small mixing bowl – you will need them to make the egg filling.
Now, you can prepare the filling: Add mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper and stir until well combined. Add some small cubes of pickles and (if you like) also some small cubes of cheese to the mixture. Stir again until everything is smooth.
Then, mash the yolks with a fork and add some spoons from the mixture. Stir again until everything looks creamy. Once you arrive at a creamy texture, taste the egg filling to see if you would like more salt or pepper or anything else.
(By the way, there are many more possibilities for the basic filling. You can add cubes of bacon or ham, olives, onions or other vegetables…)
After that, you can carefully fill the egg whites with the egg filling by using a spoon. (Or, if you want them to look more special use a piping bag.)
In the end you can garnish each egg with a slice of bell pepper and some cubes of spring onion. Sprinkle some spices over each eagg. (I used Hungarian paprika.)
Place your deviled eggs on a pretty plate. I arranged them on some leaves of lettuce. Don’t forget to wrap them loosely with plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator until they are ready to serve.
