Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs http://twocooksonepot.comThese are not the deviled eggs you are accustomed to. The texture and flavor in this recipe has got me thinking that we need to make this more often.

This was a fun and delicious twist on regular deviled eggs. We used our beet juice pickled eggs as the main ingredient, and they had just the right amount of tartness to balance everything out. One of the complaints that some people have with pickled eggs is that the texture can be a little rubbery, but that actually helped to make them the perfect vessel for deviling (is that a word)? I’ve had quite a few deviled eggs in the past where the whites of the egg tore because they were just too delicate, but the pickled eggs held up just fine.

Granted, ours were more pink than red, but still closer to being devilish than the pure white eggs we are all used to. As an added DIY bonus, we also used our homemade mayonnaise for this recipe.

You don’t have to use pickled eggs, but if you do it’s completely worth it. And not to beat anyone over the head with our philosophy, but we used and always recommend that you use organic ingredients as much as you can in all of the recipes we share with you. Granted, it’s a little more expensive to shop organic, but in our own case we’ve found that an extra dollar spent buying organic food translates into multiple dollars saved on medical bills.
