This is the Neely's spin on a great Southern tradition. The sweet, tangy flavor of the barbecue sauce blends surprisingly well with rich, creamy egg yolks. Topped with thinly sliced scallions, these eggs are perfect for a picnic, a party, brunch or dinner, not to mention game nights!

Taste buds were doing a happy dance when I brought these over to a family BBQ; I no sooner had them on the table and whoosh, they were gone. Two requests for the recipe. Didn't have the Neely's BBQ Sauce, just used Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Barbecue Sause and loved what the sauce did to the eggs. For ease of transporting I packed my 2 dozen up in my cupcake carrier. Made for RS#41. Will most certainly do these again and again. TFS!
- 12 eggs
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons neely's barbecue sauce (Neely's Barbeque Sauce)
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 1 pinch kosher salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- hot sauce (a dash or two will do)
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- smoked paprika (or regular paprika, to garnish)
Directions See How It's Made
- Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, then turn down to a simmer.
- Using a slotted spoon, gently lower eggs into water and simmer for 9 minutes. Reduce heat if it simmers too much, you don't want the eggs to crack.
- Drain water from the saucepan and run cold water over the eggs until they are cool enough to handle.
- Peel the eggs and cut in half.
- Remove yolks and place in a bowl.
- Add the mayonnaise, Neely's barbeque sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste; whisk until smooth.
- Use a spoon to scoop the yolk mixture into the whites. (If you like, you can use a pastry bag to pipe the yolk mixture into whites).
- Garnish the tops with thinly sliced scallions and a dash of paprika.
