Deviled Eggs and the Kitchen Sink

Recipe by Caryn Dalton
READY IN: 15mins




  • To make perfect eggs for deviled eggs, put all eggs in a large pot that has a lid. Cover eggs to one inch above eggs with water. Bring to boil then turn heat off but leave pot on burner for 15 minutes. Set your timer-this step is important for eggs that don't tear when you peel them. While waiting, prepare a large bowl filled 3/4 way with ice and water. When eggs have completed their 15 minutes set, rinse with cool water and place immediately in ice bath until completely cooled. Tap on large end and gently peel and half the long way and place on platter or deviled egg dish. Put yolks in food processor.
  • To small bowl, add very finely chopped sweet onion, celery and water chestnuts. These ingredients are important because they add some texture. I wouldn't ever leave them out as the texture is what most people comment on.
  • Add all the rest of the ingredients to the egg yolks in the food processor EXCEPT CHOPPED PICKLE, WATER CHESTNUTS AND CELERY) and pulse until well combined, scraping down sides if necessary. Add mixed ingredients to the chopped veggies and mix with a scraper or spoon. Spoon into egg whites. Sprinkle with turmeric and parsley flakes.
  • I actually like to serve these immediately because I think some of the flavor is masked by chilling the eggs -- but my husband likes them cold. What do you think?
