Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the eggs in half from top to bottom. Scoop the yolks into a medium mixing bowl and lay the whites aside.
  2. Place all of the peppercorns, except 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of the pink peppercorns, into a spice grinder and process until ground well. Add the ground peppers, caper liquid, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and sugar to the egg yolks and using a fork, stir to thoroughly combine.
  3. Place the mixture into a zip-top plastic bag and cut a small hole at one of the corners. Pipe the mixture into each of the white halves.
  4. Coarsely grind the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of pink peppercorns and use to garnish the top of each egg.
  5. Chill for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.

These are wonderful little gems.......Couldn't get enough of them! The addition of the caper juice was inspired! And the peppercorn medley was just fantastic. Thnx for sharing, Sharon, hon. Made for KcK's Forum Tag Game.

I love deviled eggs and these were so good. I made the recipe as written and the flavors worked out so great. I always use that blend of the peppercorns with red as well because they are just so good. I love the taste of these peppercorn additions. And like another reviewer said the caper juice was just such a great addition. You just can't make enough of these to satisfy because they were so yummy. I made these to go along with Recipe #318373 and it was just perfect. Thanks for sharing Sharon of this wonderful recipe. Made in memory of Sharon's DH.
