Deviled eggs have alway been a big favorite for me. My friends and I laugh at the fact that whenever it’s offered as an appetizer on a menu anywhere we just can’t not order them. They’re just so creamy, briny and delicious and I have yet to have a really terrible deviled egg (‘knock on wood’).
This year I’m taking a little bit of a lazy man’s approach to deviled eggs and am calling them the Undeviled Eggs. All the components of classic deviled eggs are there, but everything is a little deconstructed and layered instead. The deviled eggs are boiled to medium doneness to maximize the rich and creamy texture, while still being easy to top with yummy goodies.
The quick pickled red onions are simple and so so good. They go so well with these eggs, but they also go so well with SO many other things like simple charcuterie and cheese, in tacos, on an omelette, even in a blood mary, and so much more! You can also top these eggs with other toppings of your choice like crispy bacon or prosciutto, a drizzle of pesto, some sweet relish to name a few options. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

3/4 c mayo seems like a lot for a dab on 12 eggs. Am I just jet lagged?!
Lol, it’s a rough estimate of about 1-1 1/2 teaspoons of mayo ‘dab’ per 1/2 egg….customize to your preference!
Hi, is there a liquid component missing from the red onion recipe? So excited to make this. Thank you!
Lol, whoops! There should be 1 1/4 cups of white vinegar listed! Will add soon, thanks! :)
