In an attempt to persuade the deviled egg to choose between it’s inherent devilish nature or become a good egg we have two sides to the argument. To present both sides of the argument Conversations with a Cupcake and Kitchen Scraps have agreed to disagree on the subject of good versus evil in order to lure the Deviled egg to see their point of view. The inherently angelic Brooke from Conversations with a Cupcake will attempt to persuade the egg that it is a good egg. While the irreverently devilish Pierre from Kitchen Scraps will use every rotten-egg trick in the book to get the egg to join the dark side. In the end it will be the reader who decides wether or not the Deviled Egg is good or evil.
The Devil’s Advocate
This is not even a debate, you’re a devilled egg!
Unless you are planning on getting an egg-corcism, you are going to remain a rotten little egg until the day you get fried. So, forget about what’s fair or fowl, eggsercise your rights to be your own egg.
I imagine you’re a little scrambled at the moment, but let’s face it, you’re a bad egg so just try to egg-roll with it or you’ll end up going soft. Toughen up that shell.
You may not be an egg-head, but you’re smart enough to know you’re on an egg-celerated spiral down if you join those other whitey yolkels in their cardboard coffins. You might as well be humpty-dumpty, cause you’ll never be able to put yourself back together again…
It’s not that I’m trying to egg you on, but for the record, the chicken came first… what do you expect, you got no feet? Life can be such a cruel yolk. Speaking of bad yolks… when was the last time you even got laid? Maybe it’s time to meet some older chicks and forget about being such a good egg.
See what Brooke over at Conversations with a Cupcake has to say about being a good egg… and have your say at the reader poll over there.
Plus a very big special thanks from Kitchen Scraps to Conversation with a Cupcake for coming up with this great idea and initiating such a fun, cool collaboration. And now without further ado, here is the recipe courtesy of Conversations with a Cupcake….
CRIMSON SMOKED DEVILED EGGS
Inspired by kokkina avga–the ruby hued eggs exchanged during the Greek Pasha (Easter) celebration–these red-deviled eggs recieve ample amounts of color and flavor from beets, smoked paprika, and a hit of cayenne pepper. Don’t be alarmed by the untraditional mixture of ingredients. You’ll find the taste is both gloriously good and devilishly delicious.
8 1/2 oz. can sliced beets, drained and pureed
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. smoked paprika
1/2 t. salt
2 T. sour cream
1 T. mayonnaise
1 t. onion powder
1/2 t. red icing paste
2 T. microplaned smoked parmesan or romano
2 T. sliced fresh chives
To boil eggs (without that devilish grey ring around the yolk): Fill a large pot with enough water to fully cover eggs. Cover with a lid. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit an additional 5 minutes. Drain water from pot, then cover eggs quickly with ice. Allow to sit five minutes more. Carefully crack eggs, remove peels, cut in half and place cooked yolks in a medium bowl.
To yolks, add beets, red pepper, paprika, salt, sour cream, mayonnaise, onion powder and icing coloring. Mash with a fork until well mixed and smooth. Spoon or pipe mixture into center ofegg whites. Garnish with a sprinkling of cheese and chives.
Big huge thanks to Conversations with a Cupcake for coming up with the recipe and the idea to collaborate on such a fun project.
