I swear, I fall more and more in love with Costco's each time I go. Take for instance, our trip this weekend. I found 2 dozen, organic, hard-boiled eggs, already peeled for like $5.00 or something crazy. Since boiling (and peeling eggs) remains the biggest pain in my butt when it comes to cooking, I picked these babies right up. So now I am going to share with you the recipe for my sweet and smoky deviled eggs. The best part is you can double, triple, or even quadruple the amounts below depending on how many you need to make. Here's how I did it:
Sweet & Smoky Deviled Eggs:
6 hard-boiled organic eggs
1 tbsp organic mayonnaise
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp cooked uncured bacon, minced
1 tbsp organic chives, minced
1 tsp organic sweet pickle relish
About 1 tsp of water
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1. Cut the eggs in half, long ways, and scoop out the yolks. Place in a bowl and put the egg whites on a serving platter or plate.
2. Mash the yolks with a fork until smooth.
3. Add the mayonnaise and the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
4. This is my tip for making it easy to fill the egg whites. I create a pastry bag with a plastic sandwich baggie. Once all the mixture is inside, I cut off the tip and pipe the mixture into each egg white half.
Tip: You could obviously go old school and decorate with a little sprinkle of paprika, but I opted to use some chive pieces. Of course, you could just skip that part and go straight to the eating. That's always a great idea.
And FYI, I tend to go a little light on the mayo, which is why I add a little water just to thin out. You could always add a little more mayo instead, if you choose.
