Well, Easter is upon us again, as well as the ever present question that goes along with it – what do I do with all these eggs? My answers are always pretty simple – egg salad, sliced up and put on top of a salad, or of course everyone’s favorite remedy: deviled eggs.
My friend Jen makes the best deviled eggs, they’re smooth and creamy – with a good amount of tang from Dijon mustard. It’s usually my go-to version for cookouts. But, it’s Easter – so it’s nice to do something a little more special. And,what better to do that with than white truffle oil? It’s expensive, but the stuff is magical. I purchased a bottle a couple of years ago, and I’m still working through it. It’s insanely delicious just drizzled over roasted potatoes or some greens. Such a great ingredient, and worth every penny in my opinion!
Truffled Deviled Eggs
12 eggs; cooked, cooled, and peeled
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp white truffle oil
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
ground paprika, for garnish
Halve the peeled eggs length-wise. Remove the yolks and place in a medium bowl, set the egg whites aside. Using a pastry blender, two forks, or a potato masher – break apart the egg yolks. Add the mayo, Dijon, truffle oil, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Continue to mash until completely smooth, and season to taste with salt and pepper. A food processor works well for this application too!
Using a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip, or a resealable bag with the corner cut off – pipe the yolk mixture into the egg white halves. Garnish with paprika or fresh dill, if desired.
