Who loves deviled eggs in the summer?

I do! I do!

Deviled eggs is one of those thing that once Easter comes around, I feel like I should be eating all the time. Not to mention I just love eggs in general.

Deviled eggs, scrambled eggs, egg salad, omelets….anything really and I am in when it comes to the incredible edible egg (I was not paid to say that 😉 ).

I could literally eat like 12 deviled eggs in one sitting without even blinking. It is one of those comfort foods for me you know?

Do you have foods like that?

Recently I was invited to participate in a Contest that Hellmann’s is hosting and I was so excited to be invited 🙂

Participants are invited to recreate a recipe that Mario Batali has made that includes Hellmann’s in the ingredients. So many delicious looking recipes that Mario has it was hard to pick from.

However, with my love of deviled eggs I couldn’t help but try and recreate Mario’s “Fiery Chipotle Deviled Eggs”.

Here is a link to their contest webpage: Hellmann’s Contest App

The reason I wanted to participate in this, is not only because I was ever so graciously asked to, but also because I truly enjoy making recipes my own.

I think there is something really special and artistic about taking a recipe and immediately thinking, “oh well, I could change that ingredient to this, and I could adjust this just a tiny bit.”

It is almost like a painter who is constantly looking at their work and adding brush strokes to areas, or even those who paint the same exact scene and the art could look completely different.

To me recreating recipes, sharing recipes and making recipes of your own is something of beauty.

OK, did I geek out enough for you? 😉

First off let’s talk about the perfect boiled egg.

Do you all get that nasty green ring around your eggs? OR do you have the center that isn’t quite cooked?

Fear not, fellow foodies. I have a FULL PROOF boiled egg method.

*SIDE NOTE: Please invest in a kitchen timer. Don’t question me. Just do it, I promise you won’t regret it. 😉 *

Boiling the Perfect Egg:

  1. Place your eggs in a pot, (depending on how many eggs will change the size but make sure whatever pot/saucepan you pick the eggs can be completely covered with water), and cover with water
  2. Season with a pinch of salt
  3. Place pot/saucepan over medium heat and bring to boil.
  4. Cook at a boil for 2 minutes (get those kitchen timers!)
  5. Remove from heat and cover with lid and allow eggs to sit for 11 minutes in the water.
  6. Drain and cool the eggs for 2 minutes in ice water.
  7. Drain and peel.

Voila!

This egg recipe seriously works every single time for me. When I say every single time. I mean every.single.time. But please remember to bring your timer.

So many people are afraid to boil eggs. But also, if you are making these for deviled eggs or egg salad…honestly, the little green ring won’t make or break you (shhh….I didn’t say that).

Onto the main event!

I wanted to keep the heat of Mario’s eggs, but I wanted to put a different spin on it. I keep the theme of what he was going for just in a different way.

Mario’s

Pickled Jalapeño Deviled Eggs:

  •  4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise with Olive Oil (the only kind I ever use)
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapeños (I used homemade picked jalapeños, both red and green)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chive
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Boil your eggs with the instructions about for my “perfect boiled egg”.

Slice eggs in half lengthwise and carefully remove the yolks. I find that if you peel back one side so that the yolk starts to break away from the white and then you take the tip of a knife, the yolks tend to come out in one piece. Rinse off the egg whites so they are nice and clean for the filling.

Place yolks in a bowl, add in mayo, jalapeños, mustards, chive, salt and pepper. Mash or smoosh until the mixture is creamy. Add more or less of each ingredient as you see fit for creaminess or lumpiness.

Spoon the yolk mixture into the eggs and garnish with a chive. Now you can use a piping bag to fill your eggs for a more distinguished looking egg, but I am happy with spooning mine in. Totally your call.

Next step?

  1. Mmmmmm! I love me some deviled eggs!! These would fit the bill with the spicy jalapeno. 🙂

  2. These are now on the menu for this weekend’s bbq. Yummy.

  3. Deviled eggs, soooo delicious. These sound quite dangerous because I love jalapeno and honestly could eat a whole dozen deviled eggs haha. Feel free to stop by my link party and share some of your fantastic recipes!

    Happy Blogging!

  4. Me too, me too! These look so delicious!

  5. I’m craving for this kind of kick’in party starter!

  6. Those sound (and look:) wonderful!

  7. I adore your spicy deviled eggs! We always have them on the 4th 🙂

    • RavieNomNoms says:

      We have them a lot during the summer as well. All our BBQs always have deviled eggs 🙂

  8. I love deviled eggs and I don’t enjoy them nearly enough. The pickled jalapeno is a great addition. Can’t wait to try!

  9. The worst thing about deviled eggs is that I have no ability to stop eating, I’ll just pot them like Pez, even when I’m totally full. And with jalapenos?! I would have no control!

    • RavieNomNoms says:

      I know, it was pretty bad. I think I could have eaten about 30 if Patrick didn’t stop me haha

  10. I never ever never liked boiled eggs before I tried the ones my friend Lucy makes. I’m scared to try them for myself since I can never get the eggs to peel cleanly. I end up with most of the white sticking to the shell and I almost have just the yolk left. 🙁 Maybe that’s when the kitchen timer would come in handy?

    • RavieNomNoms says:

      Yes indeed!! Try out the timer, I promise it will help out. Also, just a tip if you used EXTREMELY fresh eggs, it makes them harder to peel. Try using eggs you have had for a least a week.

  11. I love deviled eggs in the summer, too!! Yum!!

  12. I love love deviled eggs! Seriously it’s difficult for me to stop eating them. Your recipe sounds and looks mouthwatering. I’ll have to try it next time, thanks for sharing:)

  13. I could eat a ridiculously amount of deviled eggs as well. It’s kinda scary! I’m loving this kicked up version with pickled jalapenos – sounds so good!!
