Happy Christmas, everyone!
I’m Texas-bound this morning and can’t wait to see my family and our little dachshunds and the house around the corner that we called “The Christmas House” when we were growing up because their lights are always so insane (even though they don’t hold a candle to Dyker Heights in Brooklyn, holy cow).
But while I’m up in the air, somewhere over middle America, you’re probably frantically scouring the Internet for a little something to take to a holiday party. Don’t worry. I got your back. These deviled eggs will be a total hit, I promise. They’re easy, they can be served at room temperature (no mayonnaise, holler), and they feel fancy because they have a lot of things sprinkled on top, but they’re actually super easy. Oh, you’re just looking for something to eat on the couch while you watch the 1964 Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer claymation Christmas special? So weird that you and I make all the same holiday plans every year. But yes, these deviled eggs will be a hit at that too.
Have a wonderful Christmas, and I’ll check ya next week!
- 8 eggs
- 4 T. greek yogurt
- 1 T. dijon mustard
- 1 T. white wine vinegar
- 2 T. capers
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ½ t. poppy seeds
- ½ t. sesame seeds
- ½ t. dill (I used dried, but fresh would be great!)
- Red onion, finely chopped (for garnish)
- 1 slice of bacon, browned and finely chopped (for garnish)
- Hard-boil the eggs. Julia Child did this by putting the eggs in a pot and covering them with cold water, then bringing the water up to a boil. Once the water begins to boil, you should cover the pot and turn off the burner, but leave the pot on the hot burner for 10 minutes.
- Slice the hard-boiled eggs in half long-wise and pop the cooked yolks into a bowl. Add the yogurt, vinegar, capers, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper, and stir until well-combined. Scoop the filling mix into a sandwich baggie and cut off a small corner. Use the sandwich bag to pipe the filling back into the empty yolk-holes.
- Garnish the eggs with a sprinkle of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and dill. Then sprinkle the bacon and red onion over the whole mess.
