Fried Deviled Eggs??….A New Twist on an Old Favorite!

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.

The Quarantine 15!! Time for Salad!

Yep…the quarantine 15 is a thing… I think I’ve been on that ‘SEE FOOD DIET’…you know the one where you see food and eat it….all of it…

So here’s a little poem for fun as I deal with my newly gained weight…

This pandemic has taken a toll!

I’m beginning to feel like a big old tootsie roll.

We been so long stuck inside,

I’m shocked that my leggings stretch so wide!

With so much comfort food around,

I can’t believe I am so round!

So here’s a way to make us thinner,

Try this delicious salad for dinner!

So, once again, Steve and I decided to start eating more salads…I sense this has been a recurring theme for my blog as I revisit some past posts!

This one from Cuisine at Home is a keeper! The dressing is amazing! Remember to toss the cooked shrimp with the vinaigrette for at least an hour for great flavor! This would be a great addition to your Memorial Day cookout (with under 10 people staying 6 feet apart of course)!

Dear Friends,

Thanks for swinging by!

I know that the upcoming months will be the ultimate test of my willpower!  But, the harsh reality of this is knowing that so many are without food and the ability to remain socially distant from one another to avoid the spread of this monster. I try to make light of our trivial ‘problems’ as we tread down this path. In a small way, we are donating non perishables and clothing to try to help. 

So, until next time….

 Cheers, stay safe and help others when you can….
