Oh how I love this deviled eggs recipe. It is inspired by our experience at The Spotted Pig. Their deviled eggs are truly melt in your mouth perfection. The two key elements to these deviled eggs are the creme fraiche and topping of good olive oil. Yes, it makes them sound very hoity toity, but I'm fine with that as long as I have some delicious deviled eggs to devour.
Snack or Party Food
These deviled eggs are a great healthy snack too. I just make a batch and keep covered in the fridge, so when I'm hungry I can eat 1 or 2 for a mid-day snack. If Ian and I are going to a party and need to bring some food, these transport well and are always a hit. Honestly, it's hard to beat something that's creamy, salty, tangy, and portable. Making my homemade ranch and veggies is also a great party food, is you're needing ideas!
These deviled eggs are the perfect combination of creamy, salty and tangy. They are a great appetizer for any party or a healthy snack on the run.
- 8 eggs
- 1 1/2 tablespoons creme fraiche
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon champagne vinegar optional: white wine vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt Start with 1/4 and taste the mixture to see if you want it saltier
- 2 teaspoon chives minced, sprinkled on top
- Sea salt sprinkled on top
- Drizzle of good olive oil on top
Boil water in a medium sized pot. Once the water gets to a low boil, carefully place eggs in pot. Cook the eggs for 9 minutes. P
lace the cooked eggs in a bowl that has ice water in it. This cools the eggs down quickly and makes for easier peeling. Once the eggs are cool enough to handle, peel them. Cut the eggs in half, scoop out the yolk and place the yolks in a bowl. Place the whites on a plate.
In the bowl of yolks, combine the creme fraiche, mayonnaise, vinegar, dijon, and salt. I suggest using an electric mixer so the ingredients fully incorporate and become smooth. Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill each egg white center with a tablespoon or two of the yolk mixture.
Top the mixture with a few pieces of chives.Cover the eggs and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. When ready to serve, top with a drizzle of good olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt.
You can also crisp us some prosciutto in a pan and sprinkle that on top for a meaty, crispy component.
