Egg Salad Deviled Eggs for Easter/Passover Feast #SundaySupper

It is Easter again, what an amazing time of the year. My mind goes to lemon and eggs right away. I love lemony desserts and I adore eggs but they are something that I rarely make. I am not sure why as my family loves egg salad sandwiches and my goodness what can be easier!! Or is it??

We moved back in September and just recently redid all of our appliances in the kitchen. We purchased an induction cooktop and it has taken some getting used to. Hmmm, how to boil and egg?? Before on my gas stove I would put the eggs in a pot, cover with water, bring to a boil, turn off and then let sit for 10 min. Remove the eggs from the pot and plunge into a ice bath, when cool, refrigerate until ready to use. Okay I tried that with the induction but was worried as it is instant heat on and instant heat off. So I let them simmer for 1 min. and then shut them off. In the end I got gorgeous medium boiled eggs. Fine for egg salad but not for deviled eggs. Back to the drawing board!!

I thought since the water really does stay hot with gas for so much longer, I needed to keep that heat with the induction. So in the eggs went again, up to a boil and gently cooked for 1 min. then down to just below a simmer for 10 min. I plunged them in an ice bath until cool and refrigerated. When ready to make the egg salad I cracked the larger end, it should have an air pocket there and then the peeling is easy. I cut the first one in half anxiously and viola the perfect hard boiled egg stared back at me. I was so excited.

I wanted to make simple deviled eggs, ones that kids and adults will all love. So I made an easy egg salad sandwich mixture and put that back into the eggs. They were all gobbled  down, loved them!!

How do you tell if you have over cooked your eggs? They will have a grey hue all around the yolk, very unappealing. So sometimes it is just a simple thing to master but it takes trial and error and that is what the kitchen is all about. Now I know how to boil a medium egg and a hard boil egg on my new induction cooktop. I hope this helps you out if you have a new induction also.

I wish all of you a very Happy Easter/Passover weekend!!

    I’ve had deviled eggs before but never egg salad deviled eggs! These sound perfect. I am imagining induction cooking to be somewhat like learning a foreign language. :) Your deviled eggs are so beautiful!

    Sounds like a perfect deviled egg to me! My family loves them also and they are always devoured in a matter of minutes! I love to place a green olive on top of the egg. Something about the saltiness of the olive with the egg is just satisfying to me!

    Hello! I was sure that I left a comment this morning when I updated your link. I’ll leave another one: your eggs look so amazing, and I love that they’re called Egg Salad Deviled Eggs. It’s the best of both worlds! Just beautiful! I will be making these for my next function at work. I can hear the “oohs” and “ahs” now!

    Great idea for the deviled egg stuffing. Though I’m not a huge fan of eggs, these look beautiful and would make a perfect appetizer for Easter or Passover!

    The only thing in our kitchen that hasn’t been replaced it the stovetop, and I so want a new one. It’s funny, my mom always cooks hard boiled eggs by placing the eggs in cold water, bringing them to a boil, and cooking for ten minutes, before running cold water over them. And they’re perfect every time!

      I think it really depends on the stove and what heat source you have, well, that is what I am finding with with the induction. The way your mom makes them is how I did with an electric stove. Cheers Laura, thanks for coming over.

    I love your twist on deviled eggs, Tara. Genius. I rented a portable induction plate to teach some classes a few years ago, and you’re absolutely right – they’re a little bit of a learning curve :-)
