I made some Deviled Eggs, but not just any kind of egg. I added Sriracha Sauce and some Sambal Oelek to them. And they were good.
Boil or cook your eggs, just til they're hard cooked. I did 18 eggs, and got really perturbed with how fresh the eggs were, cause they were hard to peel. Don't do what I did, buy fresh eggs and then expect them to peel easily. My local store usually has very fresh eggs. I keep forgetting that fact when I decide to make hard cooked eggs, sigh. And I always, always use my Eggsact Egg Timer. I'm just too good and not remembering to turn on the timer or... This way, I can look in the pot and tell when the eggs are done. Doesn't hurt to set a timer as well.
Peel and cool the eggs down, pop out the yolks and place them in a bowl and mash them with a fork.
Mix about 1/3 Sriracha Sauce to 2/3 thirds Mayonnaise, add a couple of squirts mustard, a little lime juice and mix together. Taste, add more Sriracha Sauce and taste again.
Here's the proportions if you need them, or at least how I started out.
3 tablespoons Sriracha Sauce
5 tablespoons Mayo
1 teaspoon mustard (although, I really question whether it needed the mustard, next time I'll add my Chinese Hot Mustard, I think it would have worked well here)
1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek or more, to taste. I needed more, so I added it.
1 dozen yolks from the hard cooked eggs
Mix together and add to the mashed yolks. Taste. This should have a nice kick, but, if you're not sure of hot sauces, don't add as much to begin with, you can always add more. Taking it out, that's the hard part.
I used a pastry bag to pipe the egg filling into the egg whites, but you can use a ziploc bag and just cut the corner off.
I'm not that coordinated, so I place my pastry bag in a tall glass and then put the egg filling into it, before I pipe the eggs.
Cut off the tip of the bag and proceed to piping.
And here they are, I had some leftover egg filling so I decided to stuff the olives with that, and since it was a Halloween kind of night, I sliced some olives and made some "eyes" out of some of the eggs. I used some Sriracha Sauce for the blood vessels.
A girl's just gotta have fun, sometimes.
I did say these were Tate's Hell Eggs. Go ahead and try some, you won't be sorry.
Hope you all have a great weekend, I'm heading out of here shortly to get me some seafood, at the Seafood Festival.
