West Coast Deviled Eggs

Easter is the beginning of Deviled egg season.  What you've never heard of Deviled egg season?!  Seriously? Well now you have (wink).  As soon as the days get a bit longer, and we start getting more beautiful sunshine, it's time to start hard boiling those eggs and filling them with a dollop of deliciousness!  Here is a recipe for one of my all time favorite Deviled eggs.  I have many I really love, but this one is unusual and very tasty.  The shallots give the eggs a sweet, mild, oniony flavor and they also add a nice crunch. The sun-dried tomatoes add a sweetness and tanginess.  The capers bring a nice mild briney-ness.  The anchovies add a depth of flavor and a bit of salt.  I never tell anyone that these have anchovy paste because some people automatically think they wont like them because they're squeamish about anchovies.  No one I've served these to has ever guessed the anchovy paste was in there.  They really do NOT have any hint of a fish taste   I hope you consider making this recipe for opening day.  Easter!  Of course!!!  If you don't celebrate Easter, no worries!  You can choose any day you like for your opening day.




This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.

  1. Have you been reading my mind? I dislike hard boiled eggs yeah I said it BUT everyone I know and their brother sister cousin LOVES them and I was thinking of learning to make them. These are so different from what they make that I want to see if I like them, I will try to make these soon.

  8. Ha! That's funny I just heard Rachael Ray say the same thing about anchovy paste! "Just don't tell". The thing that worries me is my daughter, she loves Caesar Salads and didn't like the one at Panera Bread because she said they put tuna fish in it. I had to laugh because she didn't know that it was anchovy, but she could taste it.

    Anyway, this recipe sounds great and I have some anchovy paste just waiting to be used!! I have these beautiful shallots that I've been using in everything, and boiled eggs in the sink cooling in cold water. I'm ready to go!

    Your photo is fantastic!

  23. This year will be the first year we dye Easter eggs at our house so I'm sure we'll be making Deviled Eggs. I usually just add some dried mustard powder along with the mayo but all these flavors sound awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  24. These sound different enough to be a hit! I never tell anybody that I've used anchovies in my spaghetti sauce, either ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Deviled egg season - I love it! I love the saltiness of capers. You would probably find me hovering over your egg platter eating them all;D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Deviled eggs season is to Easter as cream cheese season is to Christmas....LOL

    I bookmarked this recipe immediately and can't wait to try it. (I love sneaking anchovies into things just to get peoples' reactions when they find out after eating)

  28. These sound so yum, I love shallots and anchovies so I'm sold. As much as I love eggs, I don't think I've ever made devilled eggs before but I think I might have to do some this Sunday for a picnic lunch. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great timing on the deviled egg recipe for sure! Love that you have shallots and sun dried tomatoes in them too.

  51. Kathleen, thank you for your warm wishes- a blessed holiday to you! I'm off to browse your blog. In an Italian household, dissolved anchovies or paste are used frequently as flavoring- we just don't tell anyone :)

  60. We went to my parents' house for Easter and my mom made us some deviled eggs - yum! I love your ingredients though - never would've thought to put anchovies in the yolk. Very creative.

  65. Deviled egg season? Yes please! Sign me up! ;)

  66. my prediction was incorrect--i thought you might put avocado in the filling mixture because for some reason, i always associate it with the west coast. regardless of my failed assumption, these look and sound great--hooray for sun-dried tomatoes!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I agree with you on the anchovy paste. It adds a certain something, but it's best not to tell anyone before they take a bite.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ohhh, sun-dried tomatoes! That's a great addition. Mmmmm....

  69. I have brought different versions of deviled eggs to a few gatherings lately and I have to say the guests are reaching with one hand and stuffing one in with their other hand at the same time. Such a retro dish but everyone just loves them. 3 dozen isn't enough for most gatherings.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Last night I made these eggs and they were delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
