Devilled Eggs


Devilled Eggs aren’t seen so much anymore in the UK, from what I gather they’re popular in the states. When planning your buffet for Christmas this year make sure you do some of these. They’re delicious and versatile. A really good vegetarian option at the buffet.

Step 1

Devilled Eggs - Step 1

Place the eggs into boiling water and simmer for 10 minutes. They are best cooked from room temperature, if taking them from the fridge cook for 12 minutes. Run them under cold running water for at least 5 minutes. This stops them cooking and prevents the yolks going black.

Peel and cut in half.

This is how the yolk should look. It shouldn’t be dull or yellow and powdery. It should be vibrant orange and just hold its shape, that’s why you cool the eggs completely before you use them.

Step 2

Scoop out the yolk, you should just be able to push it out with your finger. Be careful not to damage the white as you will be loading the yolk back in.

Now mash the yolk with a fork and mix with all the other ingredients. Taste and adjust to your preference.
