Fortunately or unfortunately some good things have come from this very bad thing…the covid virus; newly found hobbies, online classes, home cooking and learning a new kind of entertaining…social distance outdoor cocktail hours.

So, on a search for easy appetizer recipes, I have found this one on Delish.com. Let’s take that old deviled egg recipe, fry it up and serve it…..a new winner!!

FRIED DEVILED EGGS!

INGREDIENTS
  • large eggs, divided
  • 3 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard 
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly grond black pepper
  • 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c. panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp.garlic powder
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • Finely chopped chives, for garnish
  • Smoked paprika, for garnish
DIRECTIONS
  1. Place 6 eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Set pan over medium-high heat and bring water to a boil. Turn off heat, cover pan with a lid, and let sit for 11 minutes. Drain, rinse eggs under cold water, and peel.
  2. Halve eggs lengthwise and scoop out yolks into a medium bowl. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, hot sauce, and Dijon mustard to bowl, then mash yolks with the back of a fork and stir until mixture is smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate while frying eggs.
  3. Place flour, remaining eggs, and panko into 3 separate shallow bowls. Add 1 teaspoon water to eggs and whisk with a fork to combine. Add garlic powder to bowl with flour and stir to combine. Dredge each egg white first in flour, then egg, then panko, and place on a plate.
  4. Add about 3” oil to a large heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Heat oil to 350°, then gently drop breaded egg whites into oil and fry until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove, drain on a paper-towel lined plate and season with salt.
  5. Fill fried egg whites with yolk mixture and garnish with chives and paprika.
