deviled eggs

I love a good party, and I’m so happy to have been invited to a virtual bridal shower for Jessica from My Baking Heart!  I’ve gotten to know Jessica through TWD.  She’s an amazing baker (and cook, too)…clearly C knows that he’s a lucky guy.

Nikki from Pennies on a Platter organized this big celebration, and we are going to have a fabulous table of drinks, snacks and sweets prepared by a list of incredible ladies.  I decided to bring along deviled eggs.  They are one of my favorite cocktail snacks, and I just love how retro they are.  The recipe below is for deviled eggs at their most basic, but you can jazz them up an infinite number of ways with spices and fresh herbs.  I used a French curry mayo that I bought at the fancy mayonnaise shop here in Brooklyn (I was just too intrigued by the strangeness of a mayonnaise shop not to stop in and buy something), and sprinkled over smoked paprika and chives.  Of course I piped my filling in with a star tip because it’s a special occasion.

Please visit Jessica to say congratulations and head over to Nikki’s to see the whole party spread.  Cheers to Jessica and Chris!

Deviled Eggs– makes 12 halves

6 large eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sour cream
1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar or squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

-Place eggs in medium saucepan, cover with 1 inch of water, and bring to boil over high heat.  Turn off the heat, cover and let stand 10-12 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a medium bowl with water and ice cubes. Transfer eggs to ice water with slotted spoon and let cool 5 minutes.

-Peel eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Put the yolks in a fine-mesh sieve and use a spatula to press them through sieve and into bowl. Add remaining ingredients, and stir vigorously until smooth.

-Arrange whites on serving platter and mound with the yolk mixture, either using a spoon or a pastry bag and tip.  Serve immediately.

  1. Your deviled eggs are beautiful! Thanks for participating!

  2. These really are a classic shower appetizer!! I don’t know anyone that can say no to a delicious deviled egg, especially fancied up with a star tip. 🙂

  3. These look delicious. I’m seriously impressed with a photo that makes deviled eggs look so divine!

  4. I love deviled eggs too, and sadly they’re never at any of the parties I attend. Too bad this party is only virtual 🙂

  5. Hi Steph!

    It’s been too long! How are you? I didn’t realize we were both attending the same party (too bad it’s not in real life!) How are you? I’d love to catch up… email me whenever you get a chance and let me know all you’ve been up to.

    Your deviled eggs are beautiful (of course, you’d break out your star tip for festivity purposes :)) And I love the nod to Jess, who is, after all, a classy, retro lady at heart! I’m curious what other selections were sold at a shop completely specializing in mayonnaise. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at the homemade version, but usually fall back on good ole Hellmans… haha! I guess I’m not as made-from-scratch obsessed as I am with all my baking. I have to confess, I’ve never had a deviled egg, but yours sound simply delightful. Maybe I’ll break them out the next time I entertain. Or I’ll go with cake. That works too.

    Hope you’re doing well, and look forward to hearing from you soon! Come grab a Biscoff Sandwich Cookie over at my “end of the table,” aka my blog.

  9. Fantastic addition to Jessica’s shower! I’m curious how different the french curry mayo tasted?

  10. Looks soooooo good!

  11. Ooh, that mayo does sound really good. The eggs look perfect! So fun to “be at” Jessica’s shower together. 😉

  12. Hey there! I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award:

  13. I LOVE deviled eggs and have to have them at every big family dinner, but yours are the most beautiful I have seen. The piped filling is just beautiful.

  14. I never make deviled eggs and I don’t know why- they’re so delicious. Yours are beautiful!
