The Ultimate Devilled Eggs

Devilled Eggs

Call it Deviled ,devilled, or Angel, once a raging success that adorned mighty banquet tables is so-totally making a comeback this Christmas season! These canapes are so incredibly easy to whip up and it’s just the perfect choice to get the party going on an epic note! Read on for our pimped-up version of  Devilled Eggs!

The Ultimate Devilled Eggs
serves 6

1/2 dozen eggs
½ tsp of Dijon Mustard
1/3 cup of Mayonnaise
100gms of Bacon
100gms of Capsicum(Kept it festive with Red ones)
1 tsp of paprika ( or you can use slightly lesser quantity ,if you want to keep it less spicy)
Salt  and pepper to taste
100gms of Cheese for the tuiles, Cheddar/Parmesan should work and this is optional
Fresh springs of Dill for garnish

Boil the eggs in a large sauce pan, Once done cover it with some cold water and let it rest for a bit before you remove the shell. 

 Peel the shell once its cooled down and scoop the egg yolks into a bowl.
In a pan you can fry up the bacon till its crispy and golden. I kept the capsicum raw to add some freshness to the dish and to cut through the richness of the creamy eggs.

Blend the egg yolks,mayo,paprika in a mixing bowl,tip in the capsicum and the prepped bacon into this. Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper if need be. Once done you can transfer the creamy mix to a piping bag.

It’s Christmas and it’s only fair to adorn the delicious eggs with some ornate tuiles! Grate some chees into a large baking tray lined with baking parchment. 

I went for bangle sized circles you can absolutely go for smaller proportions. About 8 mins of oven time and they will turn into a beautiful-golden-mesh. 

I would recommend keeping an eye on these, as even an extra min can cause it to burn! Once its out of the oven, leave it to cool for a few mins before garnishing.

Now, pipe the creamy mix ,gently into the white egg shells.


Place the golden tuiles and some fresh springs of dill to garnish it –and hey Presto, that’s job done!
