Red, White, and Bleu Deviled Eggs Recipe
Making decked-out deviled eggs is easier than you think…we start with the basic egg base, add a few ingredients, and garnish. You can never go wrong with traditional eggs, but these have the perfect kick with savory mix-ins. I promise, not one will be left.
There are a variety of methods out there used to create the perfect hard-boiled egg. Believe you me, I have tried them all, from adding baking soda or vinegar to the water with the traditional boiling to oven-baking. The no-fail, easy-peeling method that works for me every time is steaming! Some of the air from the hot steam permeates the egg shell, making it easier to peel.
How to Steam Hard-Boiled Eggs
Add a single layer of eggs to the basket of a steamer pot and add about three inches of water to the pot. If you are using a steamer basket, bring about an inch of water to boil, then place the steamer basket and eggs in. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and allow to steam for 13 minutes. Move the eggs into an ice bath (a large bowl of ice and water) and chill for 15 minutes.
Now that the eggs are ready, the fun part begins! This recipe create 12 deviled eggs.
- 6 hard-boiled eggs
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese
- 1 teaspoon horseradish
- hot sauce
- salt and pepper
- Slice eggs in half lengthwise.
- Carefully scoop out the yolk into a bowl.
- Add the mayonnaise and a little salt and pepper to taste and stir.
- Mix in the bleu cheese and horseradish.
- Use a small measuring spoon to scoop the mix up and back into the egg whites.
- If desired, sprinkle a little more crumbled bleu cheese on top, then garnish with hot sauce.
Home Chef Tip: If you don't have a deviled egg platter for plating your creations, lay them on a bed of lettuce or kale leaves to keep them from sliding.
I absolutely love this recipe; it is the right mix of tangy and spicy in one delicious bite.
