#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.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
