“My deviled eggs recipe is fairly standard, except I like to add a little cream cheese. Unlike mayonnaise, cream cheese firms up when chilled, and provides a little more luxurious texture.”

Original recipe yields 24 servings

Directions

  1. Place eggs in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a simmer over high heat. Remove from heat, cover the pot and let sit for 17 minutes.
  2. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour the warm sugar syrup over the pepper rings in a small bowl. Stir and set aside.
  3. Drain eggs and fill the pan with very cold water. Let eggs sit in cold water until they are cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes.
  4. Peel eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Remove yolks to a bowl and cover the egg white halves with a damp towel while you prepare the filling.
  5. Mash together egg yolks, cream cheese, mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce, and Dijon mustard with a spoon or spatula until just combined. Stir in rice vinegar until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Pipe filling into the egg shells.
  7. Top each egg with a ring of candied pepper and chopped chives. Chill for at least 20 minutes before serving.

I had green jalapeno instead of red and had to go hunting for Sriracha. It was worth it my husband proclaimed them the best I ever made and I liked them as well.

Basic recipe is pretty good. It does give a different twist on the classic deviled egg. I gave up Jalapenos (and other favorites) for Lent, but will add them for our Easter dinner or soon after on this recipe, but they will NOT be candied. Lose the sugar. Otherwise, very nice.

These were very good! I used more Siracha than called for...We really enjoyed the spice in these, and the creaminess of the filling from the cream cheese. A nice change from the norm...will make again! Thanks for sharing. :)
