Deviled Eggs With Hot Sauce Recipe

Deviled Eggs With Hot Sauce

Recipe History:
Deviled eggs have a long and interesting history, with evidence of their existence dating back to ancient Roman times. The term "deviled" refers to the spiciness and zesty flavor added to the eggs. Originally, the yolks were mixed with mustard and vinegar, then stuffed back into the egg whites. Over time, variations of the recipe emerged, and today, deviled eggs can be found in countless forms and flavors, including this delicious version with hot sauce.

Fun Fact: Deviled eggs are a popular appetizer at parties, potlucks, and picnics, and they are also a common dish during Easter celebrations. In fact, the White House hosts an annual Easter Egg Roll event, where deviled eggs are a traditional addition to the menu.

- 6 hard-boiled eggs
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- Cayenne pepper (to taste)
- Salt (to taste)
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

For the Sauce:
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- A pinch of Cayenne pepper
- Salt (to taste)
- 1 pint milk
- 1 egg yolk
- Chopped parsley (for garnish)
- Sherry wine (optional)

1. Start by preparing the hard-boiled eggs. Place six eggs in a saucepan and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and let the eggs simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove the eggs from the heat and let them cool completely before peeling.

2. Once the eggs are cooled, carefully cut them in half lengthwise. Gently remove the yolks and transfer them to a mixing bowl.

3. To the bowl with the yolks, add one dessertspoon of melted butter, a pinch of Cayenne pepper, salt, and the chopped parsley. Mash the mixture very finely until it forms a smooth consistency.

4. Refill the egg whites with the mashed yolk mixture, evenly distributing it among all the egg halves. Once filled, place the eggs halves on a serving platter.

5. Now, let's prepare the hot sauce. In a saucepan, melt one tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add one tablespoon of flour, a pinch of Cayenne pepper, and salt to taste. Stir the mixture continuously until it forms a smooth paste.

6. Slowly pour in the milk while stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Continue to cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently, until it thickens and reaches a gravy-like consistency.

7. In a separate bowl, beat the yolk of one egg. Slowly pour the hot gravy mixture over the beaten yolk, stirring continuously to combine the ingredients.

8. As a final touch, dress the deviled eggs with the prepared hot sauce. Drizzle the sauce over the filled egg whites, allowing the excess to drip onto the platter. Sprinkle some chopped parsley on top to add a fresh and vibrant touch.

9. Serve the deviled eggs with hot sauce immediately. For an extra kick, you can add a splash of sherry wine to the hot sauce if desired.

Fun Fact: Deviled eggs are incredibly versatile, and you can experiment with different ingredients to customize the taste. For a tangy twist, try adding a squeeze of lemon juice or a dollop of Dijon mustard to the filling mixture. You can also top the deviled eggs with crispy bacon bits, diced pickles, or a sprinkle of paprika for added flavor and visual appeal.
