BBQ Deviled Eggs Recipe
- 12 large eggs
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp hot sauce
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
- barbecue sauce
- scallions, chopped
- Place the eggs into a large pot and add just enough water to cover the eggs by at least 1". Set the pot over high heat and bring the water to a boil.
- When the water reaches a full rolling boil (not just a few bubbles rising to the surface), set a timer for 2 minutes—you’ll know when it reaches a full boil because you will be able to hear the bubbles popping and the eggs clattering on the bottom of the pot.
- After the pot has been at a full boil for 2 minutes, remove it from the heat and set it on a cool part of the stove. Reset the timer for 10 minutes.
- When the timer goes off, carefully drain the hot water from the pan then cover the eggs with cold water. Allow the eggs to sit in the cold water until they are cool enough to peel, then crack the shells and peel them away.
- Rinse the peeled eggs under cold water to remove any remaining particles of shell then set aside.
- Cut each hardboiled egg in half lengthwise and remove the yolks to a small bowl. Reserve the egg whites while you prepare the filling.
- Once all of the yolks have been removed, place a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and press the yolks through the sieve with the back of a spoon—this will give you a silky smooth filling for the deviled eggs. Be sure to scrape any remaining yolks from the back of the sieve once you have pressed them all through.
- Add the mayonnaise, butter, mustard and hot sauce to the yolks then stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper and spoon or pipe the filling into the reserved egg white halves.
- Drizzle barbecue sauce over eggs and sprinkle with chopped scallions then watch them disappear. Enjoy!
