Here’s a neat twist on the typical deviled egg appetizer. Once you’ve tried these you’ll never look at deviled eggs the same way again.

In fact, they’re not just for guests… make them any time you want a nice bite of comfort.

They are simple to make. As a matter of fact, you can boil the eggs the day before, and then assemble them the next day.

So, you ready… let’s get into the kitchen.

4Chef’s Note: Ah the mystery of hard-boiling an egg. I won’t go into that here. Let’s just say that if you talk to a dozen chefs they will give you a dozen different ways to achieve the perfect hard-boiled egg. Suffice to say that I experimented until I came up with a method that works every single time… for me.

5Chef’s Tip: Since the white portion of the egg will be used in the presentation, be as careful as possible when removing the shell.

6Slice the eggs in half, and separate the yolks from the whites.

7Add the garlic and parsley and truffle oil into the bowl of a food processor, fitted with an S-blade.

Step 8 Direction Photo

8Chef’s Note: The black truffle oil is optional (and rather expensive), but it does add a wonderful twist to an American tradition.

Step 9 Direction Photo

9Give the mixture a few 1-second pulses until thoroughly combined.

Step 10 Direction Photo

10Add the egg yolks, and some salt and pepper, to taste, and pulse to combine.

Step 11 Direction Photo

11Finally, add a bit of cream, a little at a time until the mixture is creamy, but still holds together.

Step 12 Direction Photo

12Chef’s Note: You want the mixture nice and thick, so watch how much cream you add. You can always add more, but you can’t add less.

Step 13 Direction Photo

13Add the egg mixture to the egg whites.

Step 14 Direction Photo

14Chef’s Tip: You don’t want to dome the egg mixture. You want it to be flat with the cut of the egg white.

Step 15 Direction Photo

15Add the grapeseed oil to a sauté pan over medium to medium-high heat.

Step 16 Direction Photo

16When the oil begins to shimmer, add the eggs, cut side down, and allow them to cook, undisturbed, until brown, about 3-5 minutes.

Step 17 Direction Photo

17Remove from the sauté pan, and reserve.

Step 19 Direction Photo

19Take the leftover egg yolk mixture (you will have some left), and place it into a food processor fitted with an S-blade, or you could use a blender.

Step 20 Direction Photo

20Add the sauce ingredients, except the water, and puree until smooth.

Step 21 Direction Photo

21Add the water a little bit at a time until you have a nice consistency.

Step 22 Direction Photo

22Chef’s Note: It should be thick, but it should flow like nice gravy.

Step 23 Direction Photo

23Add some of the sauce to a presentation dish.

Step 24 Direction Photo

24Chef’s Note: Add just enough sauce to compliment the one egg, don’t over do it.

Step 25 Direction Photo

25Top with one of the eggs.

Step 26 Direction Photo

26Add a bit of chopped parsley.

Step 27 Direction Photo

27Serve warm, or cool. Enjoy.
