Deviled Egg Salad
If you enjoy egg salad sandwiches or deviled eggs, you're going to love this recipe for deviled egg salad. This recipe takes two favourite recipes and combines them to create a delicious filling for sandwiches, lettuce bites and wraps. Usually, when you make deviled eggs, you separate the yolk from the white after the egg has been hard boiled. To do this, you'll have to slice the egg perfectly in half and then remove the yolks and put them in a bowl to be mashed up with other ingredients to make a filling that gets added back into the egg whites. It's kind of a lot of work to make these deviled eggs which is why it's so great that Melissa from Chin Deep came up with this recipe that takes all the flavours and ingredients of deviled eggs and mixes them up more like an egg salad, so the recipe is easier to make.
Hard boiled eggs are used in some of the best recipes, plus they taste great on their own with just a little salt and pepper on them. To hard boil an egg, the best way to do it is to put the eggs in some water in a small pot and bring the water to a boil. Once the water has begun to boil, you start a timer for 12 minutes to let the eggs boil. When the timer goes off, you dump out all of the hot water into your sink and then run the coldest water over the eggs until the pot cools down. Then you can peel them and eat them warm, or let them to sit in the cold water or in the fridge for a while longer until they are cooled down completely. The eggs used in this salad should be chilled before you use them for the recipe. If you're cooking a bunch of eggs to make a big recipe like this one, you might like to learn a cool trick. You can cook many eggs and you don't even need the boiling water to do it. All you need to do is place your required amount of eggs on a baking sheet and put in the oven at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. When they come out of the oven, you just do the same as you would with the boiled eggs; run them under water until they're cooled down completely, or peel and eat them warm. For this recipe, you'll need 12 eggs to make one batch of egg salad, so you can test this simple life hack out to make things easier on yourself.
To make your recipe even better, be sure you're buying the best eggs. The best eggs to buy are organic free range eggs. These organic free range eggs come from chickens who have been raised in a humane environment. In order to be healthy, chickens need to roam around and be free instead of being too close to one another that they start pecking at each other which can cause disease. The organic free range eggs are the best eggs to buy also because they have little to no hormones or antibiotics given to them meaning we won't ingest them either. You may also wonder about egg yolk colour. The reason an egg yolk is light or dark is based on what a chicken eats. Chickens who eat a diet of grass and grains will tend to have that vibrant yellow yolk.
