Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
Total time: 35 mins
4 large eggs
1 red bell pepper, sliced in half with seeds removed
¼ cup Happy Days Soft Unripened Okanagan Goat Cheese
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon paprika
1 slice red bell pepper cut into small triangles
1 small knob of cucumber, skin removed and cut into long strands and triangles
To hard boil the eggs, bring a medium-sized pot of water to a boil. Place one egg on the end of a spoon and gently place in the pot. Repeat until all eggs are swimming in the pot. Cook for 10 minutes. Make sure it’s a gentle boil and not rapid. Once complete, remove from pot and place in ice water. Allow to sit for 5 minutes then crack on the counter and remove the shell.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to a low broil setting. Place halved bell pepper on a cooking sheet cut-side down. Place in oven for 20-25 minutes or until top is charred. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cooled, remove skin.
Slice hard boiled eggs lengthwise. Remove the yolk and place in the bowl of your food processor or blender. Process until smooth.
Place egg white sections on a clean plate and fill with red pepper filling.
Top with bell pepper triangles and cucumber skin pieces.
Place in the fridge to cool for a couple of hours before serving.
You could use store-bought roasted red peppers if you wanted to, but roasting them at home is pretty darn simple. Just broil for 25 minutes or so, peel and you’re good to go. I wish I’d made more because they make a fabulous edition to salads.
I learned that you have to be patient when scooping out the yolks from the egg whites. I broke a whole bunch of eggs and had to restart the processes more than once.
Yes, more than once.
I had ogre hands in the kitchen yesterday, obviously!
Blend all of the ingredients together, scoop out into the egg whites…
and top with pieces of red pepper and cucumber.
Now remember – put the mustache pieces on facing down, not up like whiskers!
Now that I’ve been introduced to the world of deviled eggs I’m curious, what’s your favorite deviled egg recipe?
