Appetizer idea: Deviled eggs 3 ways

These three variations on a classic are sure to please! All three pair well with Excelsior Bitteschlappe Brown Ale. Timesaving tip: Hard boil your eggs ahead of time, then assemble the yolk fillings just before serving.

Makes 24 halves
Preparation time: 1 hour (or 30 minutes if eggs are already boiled and peeled)

Ingredients

  • 12 large eggs
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 teaspoons minced cornichons
  • 3 teaspoons minced capers
  • 1 heaping tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon wasabi sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds

Directions

  1. Arrange eggs in single layer in large saucepan.
  2. Add enough water to cover eggs by about 1 inch.
  3. Cover and quickly bring to a full rolling boil; turn off heat. Remove pan from burner to prevent further boiling.
  4. Let eggs stand covered in hot water for 15 minutes.
  5. Drain; immediately place in ice water until cooled (about 10 minutes).
  6. Crack eggs by tapping them gently all over. Roll eggs between hands to loosen shell; peel starting at large end. Hold under cold running water to help remove shell.
  7. Cut eggs in half lengthwise; scoop yolks into a medium bowl.
  8. Mash yolks with a fork or pastry blender until fine.
  9. Stir in mayonnaise and salt.
  10. Divide yolk mixture into 3 equal parts.
  11. Proceed using the following three variations:

French Style: To one part of yolk mixture, add Dijon mustard, cornichons and capers. Spoon or pipe mixture into 8 egg halves.
Garnish with minced chives.

Bacon & Eggs: To one part of yolk mixture, add grainy mustard and some bacon pieces. Spoon or pipe mixture into 8 egg halves. Garnish with bacon crumbles.

Lemon Wasabi: To one part of yolk mixture, add wasabi sauce and lemon juice. Spoon or pipe mixture into 8 egg halves. Garnish with black sesame seeds.
