Deviled eggs for Thanksgiving, ya or nay?

It’s a must-have appetizer for some, and a big NO for others. When I asked my husband, his answer was “Oh, yeah!” His grandma used to serve deviled eggs for Thanksgiving. So I decided to add it to my holiday menu this year. As much as I love classic deviled eggs, I wanted to add a little twist. I had some jarred (convenient!) roasted red peppers, so I threw it in for flavor, sprinkled some cayenne pepper and chili powder for an extra kick, and oh boy, did I get bold flavors!

My favorite part of deviled eggs is creamy smooth filling. It doesn’t have to have fancy flavors, though it’s a nice touch, but the single most important thing for me is texture. I love that rich creaminess of deviled eggs, do you?

I have yet to find another alternative that adds that rich creamy texture like mayo does. Mayo is an absolute must-have ingredient for potato salads, mashed potatoes, and deviled eggs, my favorite comfort food. Hence, you will always find a jar of mayo in my fridge. It’s a staple. I especially love Kraft Mayo, and when I came across an opportunity to work with Kraft Foods using one of their products to create a recipe, it was a no-brainer. I reached for my favorite Kraft Mayo.

Let’s talk about eggs now. You probably heard that farm fresh eggs are a big no-no for deviled eggs. I have to say I disagree. My sweet MIL provides me with farm fresh eggs. Love those farm eggs, so rich and fresh, nothing compares. I have a little secret to share with you on how I cook my farm fresh eggs for perfect deviled eggs. Ready? I steam them! Yep, steaming works wonders. No secret ingredient, no magic script that you need to repeat 100 times over boiling eggs :), just simple steaming over boiling water for 15 minutes does the trick. Be sure to immediately transfer the steamed eggs into the cold water to cool. No rubbery tough whites or greyish ring around the egg yolk, which is the result of overcooking. To peel the eggs, gently roll the cooled eggs on the counter to crack the shell all over, and carefully peel it to reveal flawless hard-boiled (hard-steamed, perhaps?) eggs.

To make the creamy smooth filling, first we need to blend the mayo with roasted red pepper in a blender until smooth. Be sure to dry the excess brine/water from the jarred red pepper, so that the filling doesn’t get too runny. Then we will mash in the egg yolks, sprinkle some ground red cayenne pepper and chili powder for a nice kick and add slash of Worcestershire sauce to brighten up the flavors. And to create that ultra-smooth filling, I push the filling through the mesh sieve.
