For Foodie Friday this week, I thought I would show you my kicked up version of an Easter classic. These spicy deviled eggs are always a crowd pleaser here at Opulent Cottage. The amounts listed below will give you a mildly spicy egg. Increase the spicy ingredients for a little more kick! Add some chopped jalapeno to the yolk mixture to really heat things up. In a pinch, you can even use pepperoncini.
8 hard boiled eggs
4 T mayonnaise
2 T olive oil
1 t brown mustard
1 t horseradish
1 t juice from bottled jalapenos
2 T finely chopped fresh cilantro
½ t ground cumin
Several dashes of cayenne
Salt and pepper
Slivers of jalapeno
Peel eggs, slice in half lengthwise. Scoop out yolks. Mash yolks along with next 8 ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings. Fill egg whites with mixture, and garnish with a sprinkle of paprika (or cayenne), cilantro leaves and jalapeno slivers. Serve on your most adorable egg plate!
