Recipe: Blue Deviled Eggs

The simple, inexpensive egg, coming in just below 50 cents each, must be the best Real Food buy on the planet. So I am always looking for new recipes and found this one for deviled eggs. I haven’t taste-tested it yet — I only have to look at the ingredients to know it will be good.

Blue Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs or 12 halves, hardboiled
  • 1/4th cup blue cheese
  • 2 T. Mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ t. minced parsley
  • 1/4th t. Tabasco
  • 1/4th t. celery salt
  • 1 celery stalk, diced    

Directions:

  1. Mix all but the egg white and celery together, then stuff and sprinkle celery on top. 

Notes: Check your mix first, then add 1/4th t. salt if not salty enough from the cheese. A few things I would add? A bit of minced red onion to add crunch and acid. Maybe a dash of mustard and a few bits of jalapeno for bite. Sweet relish? That might go too far. 

Now consider this: put 1 or 2 eggs with a good mixed salad for dinner. You get your protein and vegetables for an inexpensive and fulfilling dinner. Or chop up the whites with the rest of the ingredients, add to a whole grain bread for an egg salad sandwich. Has to be delicious. I’m going out for the ingredients now. Whoo hoo!
