Deviled Eggs Four Ways 3.06 Take the Deviled Eggs...


“We egg Jess’ car. It’s perfect.” “Are you serious?” “No one’s around, and it’s just sitting there.” “Rory, if rearranging Sherry’s medicine cabinet is immature, what’s this?” “Off the chart.”

“We can’t egg his car.” “Sure we can.” “Doose’s is closed and we don’t have any eggs at home.”

“You want to deviled egg Jess’s car? And how is that gonna make me feel better about Sherry?”


Ingredients:

  • 12 hard-boiled eggs

For the jalapeño popper eggs:

  • ½ tsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp breadcrumbs

  • 1 oz cream cheese, softened

  • 1 ½ tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 jalapeño

  • ½ tsp salt

For the bacon barbeque eggs:

  • 1 ½ tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 tbsp barbeque sauce

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ¼ tsp pepper

  • 2 slices of cooked bacon, finely diced

For the sriracha eggs:

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise

  • ½ tsp wholegrain mustard

  • ½ tsp sriracha

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ¼ tsp pepper

  • 2 tsp finely minced chives

For the pesto eggs:

Directions:

  1. Remove the shells of the eggs and slice in half. Carefully remove the yolks. Divide the yolks into 4 small bowls (that will be the yolks from 3 eggs per bowl).

For the jalapeño popper eggs:

  1. Place a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add ½ tsp olive oil and allow to become hot. Add the breadcrumbs and evenly spread out across the skillet. Allow to toast for about 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown. Be sure to monitor the breadcrumbs to avoid burning.

  2. Meanwhile, add the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and salt to one of the bowls of yolks. Using a fork, mash the yolks up and stir together to create a smooth filling.

  3. Remove the seeds from the jalapeño. Mince ¾ of the jalapeño and add to the yolk mixture. Stir to combine.

  4. Thinly slice the remaining ¼ of the jalapeño. Then cut the slices in half and set aside.

  5. Fill a piping bag with the yolk mixture and pipe into 6 of the egg white halves. Alternatively, you can scoop the mixture into the eggs with a spoon.

  6. Sprinkle the eggs with the toasted breadcrumbs and top with a slice of jalapeño.

For the bacon barbeque eggs:

  1. Add the mayonnaise, barbeque sauce, 1 tbsp of the diced bacon, salt, and pepper to one of the bowls of yolks. Using a fork, mash the yolks up and stir together to create a smooth filling.

  2. Fill a piping bag with the yolk mixture and pipe into 6 of the egg white halves. Alternatively, you can scoop the mixture into the eggs with a spoon.

  3. Top the eggs with the remaining diced bacon.

For the sriracha eggs:

  1. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, sriracha, salt, and pepper to one of the bowls of yolks. Using a fork, mash the yolks up and stir together to create a smooth filling.

  2. Fill a piping bag with the yolk mixture and pipe into 6 of the egg white halves. Alternatively, you can scoop the mixture into the eggs with a spoon.

  3. Top the eggs with the minced chives.

For the pesto eggs:

  1. Add the mayonnaise, pesto, salt, and pepper to the remaining bowls of yolks. Using a fork, mash the yolks up and stir together to create a smooth filling.

  2. Fill a piping bag with the yolk mixture and pipe into the remaining 6 egg white halves. Alternatively, you can scoop the mixture into the eggs with a spoon.

I like making hard-boiled eggs in my instant pot, but it's okay if you don't have one!

Well obviously, I had to make deviled eggs for this episode! This is the first time food is specifically mentioned in the episode title, so it was a given that I made deviled eggs. However, I didn’t want to make just regular deviled eggs. That’s been done a million times! I wanted to think of something fun. Oddly enough, the pesto-deviled eggs came to me first. I mentioned in my post for the pilot how much I love pesto and I made four different kinds of pesto for Sookie’s bid-a-basket. I’ve never known anyone to make pesto-deviled eggs, but that wasn’t going to stop me from trying them!

The pesto eggs work especially well for this episode since green is the new pink.

The sriracha eggs came to me next. Plenty of people have added sriracha to deviled eggs before, but I’ve never tried it before. I only added a small amount because I’m not keen on spicy food, despite being from Texas. I wanted to do a deviled egg with bacon, but again, I wanted to do something a little different from the norm. I think barbeque sauce pairs so well with bacon, so I was willing to try them together for a deviled egg. While the color of this filling isn’t the prettiest, it was my favorite. Just a reminder to not judge an egg by its cover...or whatever you want the saying to be. Lastly, I decided on a jalapeño popper egg. Jalapeño poppers are a great snack, and I figured I could take the key elements: cream cheese, breading, and, of course, jalapeños and add them to a deviled egg.

The jalapeño popper eggs were probably the most fun to think of.

The ratio of ingredients works if you’re going to make all four types of deviled eggs from a standard carton of eggs. If you only want to make one type of egg, you can simply multiply the ratio of each ingredient by four. Now I don’t recommend that you use these deviled eggs to egg someone’s car. They really should be for your enjoyment. That being said, if you really must use them to egg someone’s car, don’t rope me into it! What do you think of the deviled egg prank? While I do think it’s pretty immature, especially of Lorelai, I do really enjoy the scene of them pelting deviled eggs and fleeing from the scene of the crime. And when Jess wakes up the next morning to find his car covered in prepared eggs. What’s interesting to me about this prank being in this episode is that it’s one of the first times where Jess doesn’t do anything to be a little punk. Maybe he deserved deviled eggs on his car in past episodes, but I’m not sure he does in this one.

The sriracha eggs definitely had a little kick to them.

Lorelai and Rory get these deviled eggs from Sherry’s baby shower, which is sort of controversial. It makes sense for Rory to attend (sort of). I know she’s trying to have a better relationship with her father, and subsequently with his girlfriend, but I’m not sure why she feels like she needs to attend the baby shower. I really don’t understand why Lorelai agrees to attend when she absolutely hates Sherry. I get that Sherry is pretty demanding that Lorelai attends (which why?), but I still don’t get why Lorelai gives in. If it were me, I’d pass so that I could go shopping as I had planned.

I think the bacon BBQ eggs were my favorite!

As to be expected, Lorelai has a miserable time while she’s at the shower. And Sherry really rubs salt into the wound by telling Lorelai that she’s the reason that Chris has become a better partner. Sherry doesn’t know about what went down between Lorelai and Chris during the weekend of Sookie’s wedding, but surely this would still be a hard conversation for Lorelai to have regardless. Even if they hadn’t gotten together that weekend, Chris is still her ex and the father of her child. I think this is a callous move on Sherry’s part.


Let me know which type of deviled egg you'd most like to try!


Happy Cooking in the Hollow!
