[30 Day Challenge] Something quick and easy 
Nov. 3, 2013 12:36 pm 

Random Observation/Comment #365: The best hard-boiled eggs I had was in Bavaria by Schliersee. It was not only perfectly cooked, but probably laid that morning..

Recipe: Something small and easy – deviled eggs


This was made at 7AM and only took about 10 minutes. I had hard boiled the eggs the night before with the recommended Italian mother method. I placed the 8 eggs in cold water, put it on high heat covered, and then once at a rolling boil, did not lift the lid and directly took it off the water to sit for 13 minutes. This ensures that the eggs are perfectly cooked in texture. I was feeling extra experimental, so i decided to use that same wasabi mayo that I had used for the potato salad.

Lessons Learned:

  • You want to make the egg on the more hard boiled side, so maybe try 13-14 minutes off the stove for a better texture.
  • The other reason behind making the eggs this way is that you don't have the trouble of dropping them into the boiling water. When dropped, you may puncture the egg shell and make the egg boil into a weird rubbery texture.
  •  If you want to get fancy, you can make the filling in a plastic zip-lock bag and cut a hole at the end corner to squeeze the right portions in
  • Use a bit of cayenne pepper sprinkled over everything at the end to make it look cooler and add a bit of spice to it
  • Put it on a pretty plate because pretty plates make everything look better
  • Do not make 4 of these in the morning because it means you'll need to eat them all and that's way too much cholesterol even for me.

Final Thoughts:


Deviled eggs are so easy to make and really delicious as quick hors d'oeuvres if hosting a party. They're also great for picnics and the recipe is easy to tweak for your own desired flavor.

About Me
I love side projects. They keep me engaged in life and all those new things to learn every day. I'm an avid blogger (seelemonslive.com), photographer, traveler, table tennis player, and cook. I learned how to cook from my mom (who is phenomenal), but really did my own trial and error through the typical college years of combining whatever was in the refrigerator. While I was backpacking through Europe, I had to do something similar to make use of my Swiss army knife and whatever little pans they had available. Now, I just like exploring new recipes and cooking to see the smile on my friends' faces.
My favorite things to cook
I love mashed potatoes. It's my favorite food and peeling potatoes is somewhat theraputic to me. I also love making omelets for some reason.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I tend to eat while I cook, so by the time I'm done cooking, I'm pretty much already full.
My cooking triumphs
I once put string cheese in my omelet and it turned out to be the best thing ever. I also made Thanksgiving dinner last year all by myself and even got the timing right so nothing got cold.
My cooking tragedies
I'm terrbile at baking because I don't like to follow recipes and measure exactly. I once made a cake that just looked sad... so sad...
