Avocado eggs

Avocado eggs

My favourite way of eating avocadoes is on a sandwich, with peanut butter and marmite but sometimes one just wants something else...

Prep time 15 min  -  Total time 15 min
Ingredients for 2 servings
6 hard boiled eggs  • 1 ripe avocado  • half an onion  • 2 tablespoons of ketchup  • salt and pepper to taste

1.

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise, remove yolks.


2.

Chop the onion into tiny, tiny bits. I mean - really tiny. The smaller the onion bits, the better your eggs.


3.

Mix yolks, skinless avocado, onion and ketchup into fine paste.


4.

Season with salt and pepper.


5.

Fill each egg half with the stuffing. You can be generous, there's usually some left over anyway.

I always use devilled. (With 2 'l's because I'm a Brit).

Mushroom eggs

Mushroom eggs

This is definitely my favourite variation.

Prep time 30 min  -  Total time 30 min
Ingredients for 2 servings
6 hard boiled eggs  • 10-15 button mushrooms  • 1 onion (optional)  • salt and pepper to taste

1.

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise, remove yolks.


2.

Slice mushrooms very thinly, fry until golden.


3.

If you're using onion, you have two options: you can either chop it roughly and fry with the mushrooms (fry the onion first, add mushroom when it starts 'sweating') or you can chop it really, really finely and fry it separately on low temperature gas. The second technique takes longer (and you have to stir the onion constantly, especially at the end), but you'll get lovely, golden and crispy onion that tastes quite delicious and completely transforms the dish.


4.

Mix yolks, onion and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper.


5.

Fill egg halves with the mixture.


6.

Serve with sauce of your choice.

How to serve devilled eggs?

A really neat way to serve your masterpiece

What you need now is some sauce!

A few ideas for deviled eggs topping:

- A mixture of ketchup and mayonnaise. My absolute favourite. Ready in seconds. Tasty and... well, pink.

- Tartare sauce - brilliant with eggs in any form. Mix some mayonnaise with a spoonful if mustard, add pickled gherkins and capers/pickled mushrooms, salt and pepper

- There's nothing wrong with a splash of ordinary ketchup or mayonnaise!

A trick for advanced cooks

I have learned it from a good friend of mine.

If you want to make your deviled eggs really unusual, don't peel the eggs! Cut them in half lengthwise with the shell and all. There's a knack to it, but you'll quickly get it, just make sure you use a sharp knife. Remove the whole egg, taking care not to damage the shell.

You can use both yolk and chopped white for your stuffing, preferably with some mushrooms, onions and ham.

Fill the shell-halves with the stuffing, cover in breadcrumbs and quickly shallow-fry the flat side. This will give your eggs delicious, crunchy crust.

It is not so important what they are called as long as they are delicious.

Ultimately, it's all about the taste, not fancy names :)
