Creamy deviled eggs are one of the easiest recipes to make when you need to serve many people. From exquisite occasions to the casual trip to the beach, deviled eggs are a favorite menu item.
Did you know there is an interesting history behind deviled eggs? According to History.com, ‘Although they weren’t prepared the same way, the roots of modern-day deviled eggs can be traced back to ancient Rome …’ Huh… who knew? Now I can admit I am not that into the deviled egg’s history, but I am definitely into devouring them.
Generally speaking, my favorite topping to put on them is bacon. After all, bacon and eggs are a natural combination. Deviled eggs can be garnished with almost anything and taste amazing. However, some of the oddest ingredients I have seen them garnished with include potato chips and lemon. With that said, fancier versions, caviar, prosciutto, and smoked salmon are elegant ideas.
Classic deviled eggs are quick and straightforward to make and generally include only a few essential ingredients. Inspired by the traditional recipe, my creamy deviled eggs incorporate just a few more things to take the taste to the next level.
Making these tasty eggs ahead of time is a must. The longer you give the flavors time to mingle, the better the eggs will taste. My secret to making my eggs creamy is adding in a bit of sour cream and dijon mustard. Additionally, adding cumin just get it a little some extra. However, if you don’t have any sour cream, plain unflavored yogurt works just as well. I suggest using the full-fat type for better consistency.
