Crawfish Deviled Eggs

I need some more party food recipes on this thing. Deviled eggs came to mind. Classic and always a win. Adding crawfish though? Yeah…check this out.


First things first…boil the egg properly. NO GREENISH, GRAY rings around the yolks. I’m going to walk you through the steps on getting perfect, hard-boiled eggs every time.  

How to boil eggs:

  1. Make sure the water covers the eggs by 1 inch over.
  2. As soon as the water comes to a rapid, rolling boil, remove the pot from the heat and cover it with a lid. Keep the eggs in the water for 15 mins.
  3. Pour off the hot water and add the eggs to a bowl of ice water.
  4. Allow the eggs to soak in the ice bath for 8-10 mins.

See. Easy, right? And it works like a charm.

I used a food processor to blend my filling. If you don’t have one, no worries. Just be sure to finely dice the ingredients and mix well.

I highly suggest that you make these at least 8 hours before serving. A day before is recommended. The flavor gets better with time.

Happy Cooking,
