Jorge is always posting photos of local San Diego restaurants with unfamilar food. A common one is spiced up deviled eggs. From a restaurant. Yes, that's right. Apparently some cool restaurants are serving up deviled eggs, who knew?
While I have a complete aversion to eggs in the morning I love me a boiled egg later in the day. So in the very uncool, but totally local restaurant known as My Kitchen I like to whip up a spicy deviled egg that is Belly Good on the Belly Fat Cure. I make these up and keep them in refrigerator for a quick snack mid afternoon. Depending on the condiments you use, the recipe should be a true 0/0. They are also great for a party!
So here is my spicy deviled egg:
6 eggs, boiled
6 slices of jalapeno (these are from a jar)
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
3 Tbs Pickle Juice
1 Tbs Mustard (I like spicy mustard like grey poupon)
Cayenne pepper, paprika or chili powder
Let the eggs cool and peel. Fresher eggs are more difficult to peel. Rinse the peeled eggs to get off any little pieces of shell. Cut eggs in half lengthwise and pop out the yolks into a bowl. Add the mustard, mayo and pickle juice and mix well. Neatly scoop the yolk mixture back into the egg halves. Cut the jalapeno slices in half and place on top of the deviled eggs. Sprinkle with the cayenne just before serving.
I've read that adding a tbs of vinegar to the pot after they are done boiling and are cooling, it will help with peeling. Haven't tried that yet though! Also if you want to get all fancy pants with your deviled eggs (and really, who doesn't), put the yolk mixture in your cake icing bag with a nice tip and pipe them back into the egg halves. Several friends are raising chickens and I'm really looking forward to buying eggs from them as soon as the hens are laying. They are well loved, truly free range chickens!
