And, once again, just like that, it’s #Bunchweek! Maybe not ‘just like that’ it has been a year. I love brunch but we simply don’t indulge as often as I’d like. By that I mean a full on brunch with family and friends. So when I think of a full on brunch I think of a variety of foods that can be served and deviled eggs certainly come to mind. These deviled eggs with capers, cucumber and red onion are creamy and full of flavor.
As you know, I always speak honestly about my cooking endeavors. With that in mind I share that this is the first (yes I know, hard to believe) time I’ve ever made a deviled egg of any kind. I know, I know, they are super easy, one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make but my mother-in-law was the queen of deviled eggs. She brought them to all the family gatherings. I really miss those deviled eggs. So when I got the products for brunch week from Eggland’s Best and the Cento capers, I knew I was making deviled eggs. It was either that or a chicken or grouper piccata.
While deciding how to make this version, I first searched my pantry and fridge. I had a half a red onion and a cucumber, both of which I would include in a salad so I thought, combined with the eggs and capers, would be a great paring. The results are delicious and creamy deviled eggs with capers, cucumbers and red onion.
This is the third year I’ve participated in #Brunchweek. Some of my personal favorites from previous years include Cheddar dinner rolls, which were a hit with the family, apple banana streusel bread and apple cinnamon scones with salted caramel drizzle.
- 5 large eggs, hard boiled (I used Eggland's Best)
- ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoons capers, finely chopped but not rinsed (I used Cento)
- ½ medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely diced
- 2 tablespoons red onion, finely diced (plus more for garnish)
- Pepper to taste
- Peel eggs and cut in half lengthwise. Transfer yolks to a small bowl, reserve whites shell on a plate.
- Stir in with a fork the Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, capers, cucumber and red onion, mixing but breaking up the yolks. Stir until creamy and well combined. Taste and add pepper.
- Spoon, or pipe, filling into egg whites. Sprinkle with a bit of finely diced red onion as garnish. Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes or up to 1 hour.
