Deviled Eggs - Remoulade

I am continuing to feature the "side dishes of Shrimp Week - Week" with these gems.

I am a bit of a connoisseur of deviled eggs.  I spent my youth in the trenches of culinary challenges, the basements of church potluck dinners.I have seen the empty plates of truly fabulous deviled eggs, and I witnessed the shame of a plate being taken home with half the eggs still in place. The indignity of it all to be judged by your peers.

These gems would be the talk of the kitchen in any church...

Really!  This is no exaggeration, the best I have eaten...

Start with some of the leftover remoulade sauce I made during Shrimp Week.  I had some left over, and did not want to waste it.  The sauce is that good... really good...

Here's my recipe I use to make my own Remoulade sauce...

3 TBS spicy whole grain Mustard
3 TBS BBQ Sauce (can use ketchup)
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup chopped Green Onions
1/2 cup chopped Yellow Onion
1/2 cup chopped Celery
Juice of 2 Lemons
Zest from 1 Lemon
2 TBS Parsley
2 TBS prepared Horseradish
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

I used a blender, you can use a food processor... Just add everything and process until mostly smooth... about 30 seconds.  You want small chunks of the vegetables in the goo, so do not over process.

Hard boil a half dozen eggs.  Remove the shell and split in half and remove just the yolks, leaving the cooked whites for the base.

Mix the yolks, 
1/4 cup of the remoulade sauce and 
1/4 cup Buttermilk

Fill a small ziplock bag with the mixture and cut one corner of the bag.  You can use this to pipe in the filling.  Easier than using a spoon.

And works like a charm.  the smaller the hole, the fancier you can get with the goo.  I was happy with this wave image.

Top with a bit of fresh cracked pepper.

You can dress up an old classic!



  1. As you knew I grew up at basement Church pot lucks and feel like the deviled egg queen myself. What a great idea to make them with this Remoulade! Impressive! Also love the baggie tip! Why didn't I think of that? I'm making Deviled Eggs on Friday for a client's open house. yum

  2. A delicious twist on an old classic. And might I say, you are very good at refabricating your leftovers. Very inventive.

  3. Mmm remoulade. Good stuff. And can you believe I've never had deviled eggs? What is wrong with me.

  4. Growing up, children had to be last in line during the church potluck. Some of the sweet church ladies knew how much I loved deviled eggs so they would save me some in the fridge. I began calling them church eggs and years later the name has stuck. Yours look divine!

  5. I too would consider myself a connoisseur of deviled eggs. These sound outstanding. I like the very creative use of the remoulade.

  6. I've never met a deviled egg I didn't like. Can't wait to try your recipe.

  7. These look and sound wonderful. Deviled eggs are a favorite of mine and your recipe will be put to good use somewhere down the line. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  8. Definitely a superior deviled egg! Wonderful recipe. The next time I hard boil, I'm making these!

  9. A wonderful twist on an old favorite. I can't wait to try these! Yum-O!

  10. And I thought mine sounded tasty. Now I have to try yours.

    The remoulade recipe alone is worth it! Maybe I'll try that one first...Sigh...I just don't know.

    I need to eat something, I'm just not thinking clearly!!

  11. Hmm, I'm not big on deviled eggs so maybe I need to try something like this!

  12. I've done the bag trick - loving your eggs on the red plate. :)
