Angel Eggs… Classic deviled eggs recipe just like grandma used to make.
The first time I heard of angel eggs was from a delightfully quirky friend who enjoys cooking as much as I do. She says her family has always called deviled eggs, “Angel Eggs.”
I guess they just didn’t like the idea of naming anything after the devil. Who knows!
What I do know, is that name has stuck. Last year as we were turning all our beautifully dyed Easter eggs into classic deviled eggs, I mentioned to the kids that my friend likes to call them angel eggs.
My sweet daughter agreed that only angels could make yucky yolks taste this good. My kids have been calling deviled eggs Angel Eggs ever since.
So here you go, turn those yucky yolks from your egg hunt into creamy Angel Eggs this year. Your family might grant you a pair of wings and a halo for the day!
How to Make Angel Eggs (Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe)
Place 1 dozen large eggs in a large pot. Fill the pot with cold water until it covers the eggs by about an inch. Bring the water to a boil; then reduce to a low simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the pot from the stove and place it in the sink. Run cold water into the pot for several minutes until the pot is full of cold water.
Remove the eggs. Roll each egg to crack the shell and gently peel. (Find more tips for boiling and peeling eggs here.)
With a sharp knife, cut each egg in half length-wise. Remove the yolks and place them in the food processor. Add the mayo, mustard, dill, shallots, paprika, salt and pepper to the egg yolks. Puree until extremely smooth.
Using a pastry bag and tip, or a zip-bag with one corner snipped off, pipe the yolk mixture into the hole of each egg. Sprinkle a few capers and extra chopped dill on each egg. Cover and refrigerate until ready to eat!
