Deviled eggs recipes have moved beyond grandma’s classic recipe. A few celebrity chefs have created some delicious recipes that highlight bold flavors.
As Easter approaches, deviled egg recipes seem to be filling family tables. According to McCormick, “nearly 61% of Americans plan to make and/or eat deviled eggs” around the Easter holiday. Given that 2.9 billion eggs are eaten around Easter, it makes sense that people are looking for innovative ways to eat all those eggs.
Deviled eggs recipes become more popular around the Easter holiday. Thinking about that recipe, the basic, classic ingredients (beyond the egg, itself) include mayonnaise, mustard and vinegar. But, that classic recipe keeps evolving.
As people are looking for new ways to enjoy the classic deviled egg, a few ingredients seem to top favorite list. According to McCormick, the top ingredients in a deviled egg include, bacon (46%), mustard (33%), paprika (32%) and avocado (28%).
Thinking about those popular flavors, there seems to be a theme, classic flavors. But, those classic flavors can be transformed with a few bolder choices. With a little creativity, the classic deviled egg can be influenced by regional flavors while still incorporating the favorite ingredients.
Recently, McCormick asked several celebrity chefs suggest some of their favorite deviled eggs recipes. While many of the recipes include the most popular ingredients, each celebrity chef recipe includes a nod to his/her cooking style. From Mexican inspired to Southern classics, any of these deviled egg recipes would make a splash on the Easter table.
McCormick has graciously shared these celebrity chef recipes. Which one will you be making this holiday?
