Italian flavored deviled eggs, does that sounds delicious? They’re flavored with pancetta and balsamic cream, and a great snack not only at Easter.
One of my childhood food memories are deviled eggs. My mother often made them for a buffet and I have never learned how much deviled eggs is the max to eat at a buffet. I know at least that I’ve eaten a lot more. These deviled eggs are pimped with balsamic creme and pancetta and the whole was decorated with thin strips of basil. A delicious stuffed egg (she writes while the last egg is put into her mouth (and I have really eaten all the eggs by myself (shame on me)), and they are also very nice for an Easter brunch.
- Use eggs that are about 10 days old. When the eggs that you boil are to fresh, the shell will stick and you can’t peel them very well.
- To get the proper form for deviled eggs, prick the bottom of the egg before cooking by using a pushpin.
- If you want to cook the eggs use these recipe and you’ll always have the perfect hard boiled eggs.
- If you can’t get balsamic cream or you don’t have any in your house right now, take some balsamic vinegar and cook it until you’ve got 1/3 of the volume (and don’t forget to turn on the hood)
- You can substitute pancetta for Parma ham
- Roasted pine nuts. Top your deviled eggs with a bit of Pancetta, some basil and roasted pine nuts.
- Deviled eggs are best eaten right away. Otherwise your egg yolk filling will dry. If you want to make it in the morning use the following tip:
- The two main ingredients (white egg halves and egg yolk filling) are made in the morning. The egg whites are stored wrapped in plastic foil in the refrigerator. The egg yolk filling is stored in a pastry bag in the refrigerator. Just before serving pipe the egg yolk filling in the deviled eggs. This way you do the preparations in the morning
