Deutsch Country Days Deviled Eggs
One dozen week old fresh eggs, room temp.
1 T+ of Fresh Horseradish
3-4 T Yellow Mustard
3-4 T Mayonnaise
tsp. Seasoned Salt
tsp. Parsley & hot pepper seeds
Very finely chopped B&B pickles or relish you might have on hand
Make certain the eggs are at room temperature prior to making deviled eggs. Put week-old eggs (room temperature) into cool water in a large heavy pan, being certain all are completely covered with water. Bring very gently to a boil. Cover. Let rest off the heat for at least 20-35 minutes. Drain and run under cool, running water. Shake eggs vigorously in the pan w/the lid on to break and crack away the shells. Peel IMMEADIATELY- do not let them sit or they will not peel! (this especially true w/freshly laid eggs) Note- If you use fresh eggs (as I do right from the chicken house) this will work. However, you need to keep them at least a week, or at worst, purchase eggs from your general mercantile, making certain they are at least a week old. (Usually not a problem at today's stores) Following the peeling of the shells, split eggs carefully into halves w/a very sharp knife. Mix the hard-boiled yokes w/mayo (or you can substitute half may/half olive oil) horseradish, mustard and seasonings in a food processor. Pulse till smooth resembling stiff whipped cream, but not too thin that when they are cool, they will run out of the whites! Pipe into whites in a plastic bag w/the corner tip cut into a star. Garnish with a slice of pimento, black olive, green or red pepper, anchovy or paprika.
