These eggs are perfect for when you're craving deviled eggs, but don't have the time to boil a whole bunch of eggs, gently remove the yolks, mash up the yolks and then pipe them back into the whites. Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE deviled eggs! Sometimes taking the time to make them is absolutely worth it. But sometimes you just don't have the time. And that's where these devil"ish" eggs with spicy mayo come in.
Boil some eggs (hard or soft, your choice) then top them off with spicy mayo, fresh herbs and, of course, smoked paprika. That's it!! Easy peasy!
And, now, because you probably have some questions......
How do I make hard boiled eggs?
I love this method because it's CRAZY easy! Put your eggs in a medium pot, fill the pot with water until the water just covers the eggs. Cover and bring to a boil. As soon as the water starts boiling, remove from heat and let sit. I love my eggs more on the soft boiled, jammy side, so I let them sit for 6 minutes. If you like your eggs more hard boiled, leave them for 8 minutes.
As soon as time is up, take the pot to your sink, turn on the faucet and fill the pot with cold water. This will cool the eggs off and stop them from cooking. The water should overflow, so turn that cold water on full strength to get the cold water into the pot. You don't want a trickle or your eggs will take longer to cool which means they'll keep cooking.
That's it! Take your eggs out of the water, remove the shells and store them in a sealed container in your fridge.
Let me know if you make these devil"ish" eggs with spicy mayo! I always love hearing from you and seeing what creative and delicious dishes you're making in your kitchen!
How long with hard boiled eggs last?
You can store hard boiled eggs in your fridge for up to 7 days. Which makes this recipe a fabulous make ahead one!
Can I use any mayo for the spicy mayo?
Technically, yes. But I highly recommend using Kewpie mayonnaise. You'll find it in your local Asian grocery store or in the Asian aisle of your grocery store. Kewpie is made with egg yolks, so it has a richer flavor than American mayonnaise.
Can I use yogurt for the sauce?
I haven't tried yogurt for this recipe, so if you use it be sure to comment how it turns out!
