Deviled Eggs

Deviled Egg
Written by ItsMe

Deviled Eggs are one of those dishes that are so simple to make and taste amazing but are rarely made. This recipe is ideal for starters, buffets, appetizers and as a side dish. Adding the gherkins and jalapenos to simple boiled eggs gives a lovely hit to this dish. These are superb when served alongside Shrimp TempuraScallops with Prosciutto and Pea and Potato Samosas – Simple Recipe. The different texture and flavours compliment each other for a plate of the worlds cuisine. Also, this recipe can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. I have also made these for family picnics as they add a variety to the norm.

You can always use a zip-lock sandwich bag if you don’t have a piping bag – seal bag and snip off one corner of the bag.
