#10DaysofTailgate: Herbed Deviled Eggs

The quinessential finger food? Deviled eggs! Last year, when I hosted a virtual potluck Eggstravaganza, bloggers shared over half a dozen deviled eggs recipes and many more delicious bites. I decided that I needed to bring some to #10DaysofTailgate. One of the event sponsors Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices had sent me a cooler full for prepped herbs for participating, so I whipped up some basil eggs, parsley eggs, oregano eggs...you get the idea. The only ones that made it to the photo shoot were the basil eggs. Whoops. I guess I should have photographed them before telling the boys that the eggs were done!



Ingredients
  • 6 large organic eggs
  • 1/4 C organic mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t ground mustard
  • 1 t crushed garlic
  • 1-2 T fresh herbs (I used some prepped herbs from Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices*)
  • fresh herbs, whole leaves, for garnish

Procedure
Hardboil your eggs. Cover eggs completely with cold water by 1 to 2" in a heavy saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer eggs, covered with a lid for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and let stand - covered - 15 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice to stop cooking. Let stand 5 minutes.

Peel eggs and halve. I typically halve them lengthwise, but did it widthwise this time to fit in my ceramic egg crate for the photos! Note to self, when you slice them widthwise, to maximize fill space, you're really only chopping off the top. I needed to cook 12 to get 12. 

Remove yolks as carefully as you can and mash in a bowl with a fork. Add mayonnaise, ground mustard, garlic, and herbs. Stir with fork until smooth. Fill egg whites with deviled egg mixture and garnish with fresh herbs.
