My husband LOVVVVES Deviled Eggs. I love them too but personally I think they are a pain in the arse to make. The only reason why I make them is I lovvve my husband. I’ve never made a really good d-egg which is another discouraging factor. This morning I pleaded and begged him to pick up the task. Compared to me, he is a gentler cook, which is what deviled eggs need. Somehow I got him to agree.
THE best deviled eggs I’ve ever had. When you’re trying to pass a little love through food – try this:
Joe’s BEST damn Deviled Eggs 8 Hard Boiled Eggs 1 scallion finely chopped 2 tbsp red onion finely chopped 2 strips bacon finely chopped 1 ½ tsp grey poupon Dijon mustard Heaping ¼ c. Mayonnaise ½ tsp celery salt Coarse ground black pepper
Cut eggs in half and remove yolk. Mash yolk and add ½ of the scallion, ½ red onion, and bacon. Mix. Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth. Normally, you would fill a plastic bag and pipe the filling in the eggs but Joe spooned the mixture in. Top with the reserved red and green onions. I'm impressed with the beauty of his eggs.
Food is so intriguing. I’ve always loved to cook whether it’s casual and simple or complicated and elegant. After living in the Midwestern United States all my life I find myself jumping between All-American foods and foods from other cultures. There is definitely a sense of comfort with cooking and enjoying food that I’ve grown up with.
I have a voracious curiosity to learn about all cultures, especially the Middle East/Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai foods. I’ve learned that a simple curry dish or an Asian dumpling can transform your mood and be just as much of a comfort food as the foods you’ve known you’re whole life.
It is fascinating to me how each culture has such a diversity of ingredients, and when used with different combinations and cooking techniques you can easily transform the same few ingredients into a multitude of dishes. The unfamiliar, the diverse ingredients and techniques, can be intimidating to many people. I’ve created this blog to chronicle and share my explorations in the kitchen so that hopefully you will want to start experimenting in your kitchen.
