Deviled eggs and boiled eggs in general always icked me out as a kid but i’m glad I grew out of that because 1) I love jammy eggs on salads and toast and 2) these deviled eggs freakin rock.
what is a jammy egg? its when the yolk is neither hard nor runny, the perfect in between if you ask me!! but for deviled eggs you need them to be mostly or fully “hard” aka cooked through yolks.
Makes: 12 deviled eggs
Time: 30 minutes
1/4 cup mayo
1 tablespoon sriracha
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons champagne vinegar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Presentation: fresh dill and black pepper
Add your eggs to a pot and cover with cold water, you want an inch of water above the eggs. Bring to a hard rolling boil then turn off the heat, cover and let them sit for 10-12 minutes.
While the eggs are cooking, add ice and cold water to a bowl large enough to fit all of the eggs. Once the eggs are done cooking, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to the ice bath to stop the cooking process. Let them sit in the ice bath for a full five minutes, they’re easier to shell when cooled.
To shell the eggs, I like to tap them on the counter around the center all the way around the egg then run under cool water while peeling off the shell.
Once you’ve shelled all of the eggs, cut them in half length wise and remove the yolks, placing them into a bowl.
Add mayo, sriracha, mustard, vinegar, and spices to the yolks and whisk until smooth.
Add the filling to a piping bag or just a regular ziploc bag and then squeeze a dollop into each egg.
Top with freshly cracked black pepper and fresh dill. Enjoy!
I hate boiling eggs because I always have to google how to do it and don’t trust the process so I bought a Dash express egg cooker. It comes with a little measuring cup that tells you how much water to add for the level of “done-ness” you want, then you plug it in and press a button and it does all the work!
My egg yolks for this were mostly hard but still a little jammy at the very center which is how I prefer them - if you boil eggs often you know how you like them!! they do need to be mostly cooked through for deviled eggs though.
