Before you can think about heating up your fryer with hot oil, you first need to make some hard boiled eggs. The best way to do this is to simply boil a large pot of water, place your eggs in the boiling water and boil for 10-12 minutes. Then, rinse in cold water and remove the shell. A simple trick to remove egg shells quickly — roll the hard boiled egg back and forth on a cutting board using the palm of your hand. This will crack the shell a bit. Then, remove the shell as you normally would. You will be amazed at how easy it comes off!
Here is how to make Fried Deviled Eggs! Below the video is the full recipe!
- 12 hard boiled eggs, peeled
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp pickle relish
- 1 dash hot sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- vegetable oil for frying
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 1/2 cups panko
- paprika for garnish
Cut the eggs in half and remove the yolk from the egg whites and place the egg yolk in a medium bowl along with the dijon mustard, mayonnaise, pickle relish, and hot sauce. Season with salt and black pepper. Mash the yolk mixture with a fork until smooth and place into a piping bag or a plastic bag with the corner snipped off.
Meanwhile, heat about 2 inches of oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Place all-purpose flour in one small mixing bowl, beaten eggs in another small bowl, and panko breadcrumbs in a third.
Dredge the egg whites in the flour, followed by the eggs and finish with the breadcrumbs. Add the eggs to the vegetable oil and fry until golden brown and crispy, draining on paper towels after about 2-3 minutes.
Pipe the yolk mixture onto the fried egg whites and top with paprika as a garnish.
