i love deviled eggs!

i know many people who don’t like them, and i suspect that that’s because they’ve only had simple deviled eggs made purely with mayonnaise. my mother’s recipe is far more delicious and when i make them, i eat one after another after another…

i do not have an exact recipe here, since most of the mixture is based on your own personal thoughts about how much curry or relish you enjoy. simply add the ingredients below to your boiled and crushed egg yolks.

a boiled egg thought: my method for boiling our eggs is to salt and boil water, add all of the eggs, cover and continue to boil for 1 minute. after 1 minute, i cut off the heat and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 10-12 minutes. afterwards, i place them in a bowl of cool water so they don’t continue to cook inside their shell.

once the eggs have cooled, i peel them and slice them in half, popping out the boiled yolks into a separate bowl (same way as most folks).

our orange-yolked aurora eggs. these were just sliced after boiling and ready to be made into deviled eggs!

and then… i add the extra delicious ingredients, adding a little bit of each to start:

the finished product! i admit, this batch turned out messy and a little bit ugly but i was in a rush and it was still yummy!

  • mayonnaise
  • garlic aioli mustard from trader joe’s. such a delicious, flavorful, and also spicy mustard that we love! if you don’t have a favorite or gourmet mustard, any sort will do!
  • relish
  • pickle juice. we use the juice from our very own greenbean pickles that have been pickled with salt, garlic, jalapeƱo, and dill. very delicious and great for intestinal health.
  • black pepper
  • cayenne pepper (certainly a little bit until you’re sure spicy is for you)
  • and the big, awesome ingredient: curry powder!

i always add a dab of this and a pinch of that in the beginning so that i can keep my ratios right. then i add more spice or liquid/sauce once i do a taste test.

enjoy! if you make this recipe, let me know how it turns out for you!
