Blue Smoke Deviled Eggs

READY IN: 19mins
Recipe by echo echo

From the Blue Smoke restaurant on E. 27th Street in New York City. When I make them I actually just cut them in half lengthwise rather than the way described here.

I found this recipe years ago from a different site, and I am asked all the time to make deviled eggs for parties and gatherings. I used to be able to find the "tarragon infused champagne" vinegar, and it was really excellent. Now I cannot, and it is such a shame. The recipe is still really good, but I haven't settled on a replacement vinegar yet. I may try infusing some of my own vinegar one day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Reduce the heat, and simmer for exactly 9 minutes.
  3. Pour off most of the water and immediately run cold water over the eggs.
  4. Crack the eggshells, roll each egg between your palms and peel under running water.
  5. Cut a small sliver off both ends of each egg (so they'll sit without wobbling) and halve them crosswise, forming round cups.
  6. Remove the yolks, and mix with the mayonnaise through curry powder with a rubber spatula until smooth.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Mound the yolk mixture into the egg whites.
  9. (For fancier eggs, spoon the yolk mixture into a pastry bag with a star tip, and pipe the mixture into the egg whites to form rosettes).
  10. Refrigerate until served.
