Butternut Squash & Bacon Deviled Eggs

Butternut Squash & Bacon Deviled Eggs
Yields 12
Write a review
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 small butternut squash (.75 to 1 pound)
  2. 6 large eggs
  3. 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  4. ⅛ teaspoon cayenne, plus more for sprinkling
  5. ⅛ teaspoon salt
  6. ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  7. 2 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
Instructions
  1. Cook the butternut squash. Prick the squash with a fork several times. You can roast the whole pricked squash at 375°F for about 30 minutes, until tender. Alternatively, you can microwave it for 5 minutes, cut it in half lengthwise, and microwave both halves cut-side down for another 5-8 minutes, until tender. When the squash is tender, remove and discard (or save) the seeds and scoop out the filling.
  2. Place the cooked squash in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Measure out 6 tablespoons of squash for the deviled eggs.
  3. Meanwhile, hard-boil the eggs. Place the eggs in a large pot and cover with at least 2 inches of cold water (*see note). Bring the water to a rolling boil over medium-high heat. Remove the pot from the heat and cover for 11 minutes. Remove the eggs from the pot and run them under cold water to stop the cooking. When they're cool enough to handle, peel the eggs, slice them in half lengthwise and scoop out the yolks into a mixing bowl.
  4. Add the 6 tablespoons of butternut squash purée to the bowl with the yolks, and mix. Add the mayonnaise, cayenne, salt, and nutmeg and mix until smooth (you can also return this mixture to the food processor or blender if you want it super smooth).
  5. Divide the filling among the egg halves (either using a spoon or pipe it in using a piping bag).
  6. Top with a few crumbles of cooked bacon and sprinkle cayenne on top. Refrigerate until serving.

Ingredients
  1. 12 Hard-Boiled Eggs
  2. 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
  3. 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
  4. 1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
  5. 1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
  6. 1/4 Tsp. Salt
  7. 1/4 Tsp. Pepper
  8. 2 Tbsp. Finely Chopped Fresh Dill or Chives
  9. Food Dye for Coloring Egg Whites (see below)
TOPPERS
  1. Chives, crabmeat & fresh dill, small cooked shrimp & chives, smoked salmon, capers & chives, diced red bell peppers & Italian parsley, steamed asparagus tips (optional)
Instructions
  1. CUT eggs lengthwise in half. REMOVE yolks to medium bowl. RESERVE 20 white halves. Finely chop remaining 4 white halves.
  2. MASH yolks with fork. ADD finely chopped whites, mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper; mix well. ADD dill; mix well. Cover and refrigerate.
  3. DYING EGG WHITES: ARRANGE egg whites in glass jars or tall glasses. For each color, COMBINE 1 cup hot water, 1 tablespoon white vinegar and desired food coloring.
  4. Maroon: 200 drops (2 tsp.) red + 5 drops yellow + 2 drops black, let sit 5 to 10 minutes. Blue/Dark Blue: 150 drops (1-1/2 tsp.) neon blue + 70 drops (1/2 tsp + 20 drops) neon purple, let sit 2 to 3 minutes for brighter blue and 5 to 6 minutes for darker blue.
  5. POUR color mixture over egg whites to completely cover. Let stand 2 to 10 minutes to achieve desired color.
  6. REMOVE colorful egg whites from dye mixture with slotted spoon, pat dry with paper towels. SPOON 1 heaping Tbsp. yolk mixture into each reserved egg white half. Garnish football eggs with chive laces or other toppers, as desired. REFRIGERATE until serving.
Notes
  1. Deviled eggs can be made up to 12 hours ahead. Refrigerate, covered.
  2. Tailgate tip: Prepare filling in plastic bag, as above. Carry whites and yolk mixture separately in cooler. Fill eggs on the spot, pressing filling out of snipped corner of bag.
  3. Very fresh eggs can be difficult to peel. To ensure easily peeled eggs, buy and refrigerate them a week to 10 days in advance of cooking. This brief “breather” allows the eggs time to take in air, which helps separate the membranes from the shell.
  4. Hard-boiled eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling. Cooling causes the egg to contract slightly in the shell.
  5. To peel a hard-boiled egg: Gently tap egg on countertop until shell is finely crackled all over. Roll egg between hands to loosen shell. Starting peeling at large end, holding egg under cold running water to help ease the shell off.
  6. No-mess method: Combine filling ingredients in 1-quart plastic food-storage bag. Press out air and seal bag. Press and roll bag with hand until mixture is well blended. Push filling toward bottom corner of bag. Snip off about 1/2-inch of corner. Squeeze filling from bag into egg whites.

Bacon Blue Deviled Eggs with Roasted Garlic and Asparagus

Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 heads garlic
  2. 18 large eggs
  3. 10 slices thick-cut bacon
  4. 10 asparagus spears, woody stems removed
  5. 1 pinch each of salt, pepper and garlic powder
  6. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  7. 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt (full fat!)
  8. 1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  9. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  10. 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  11. 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  12. 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  13. 2 tablespoons fresh chives
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Slice the top off the heads of garlic and drizzle them with olive oil. Wrap them tightly in aluminum foil and place it in the oven to roast for 45 to 60 minutes. You want the cloves to be caramely and golden. Remove the garlic and unwrap it, allowing it to cool until you can touch it. You can do this a day or two ahead of time if you'd like!
  2. To boil the perfect egg, place the eggs in a large pot and fill it with cold water. Bring it to a boil and let bubble for 1 minute, then turn off the heat and cover the pot. Let the pot sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, place the pot in the sink and fill it with cold water to cool the eggs down immediately. You want the eggs to sit in cold water for 30 minutes or so, so you will need to dump the water and refill with cold water a few times. You can add some ice cubes too!
  3. While the eggs are cooling, heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and cook the bacon until crisp and all the fat is rendered. Place the bacon on a paper towel to drain the grease. Keep 1 to 2 tablespoons of the grease in the skillet (reserve the rest!) and throw the asparagus in the skillet. Sprinkle it with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cook for 5 minutes, just until slightly softened. Turn off the heat.
  4. After 30 minutes, peel the eggs and place them on a paper towel. Slice off a TINY piece of the fat bottom of the egg so it can "stand up." Slice off the upper 1/2 of the egg to reveal the yolk (occasionally you might have to slice off more or less, it just depends). Gently scoop the yolk out of each egg with a small spoon, fork or knife, trying not to destroy the white in the process. This can be difficult, so do it patiently and gently.
  5. Add the bacon slices to a food processor and pulse until it is in crumbles. It may stick together and be paste-like, which is fine because it will stick to the eggs better! Remove the bacon and place it in a bowl. Do NOT clean out the food processor! Add the egg yolks, mayo, yogurt, mustard, salt, pepper, and roasted garlic cloves (squeeze them out of the bulb) to the food processor. Add in a drizzle of reserved bacon grease if you have it, like 1 to 2 teaspoons. Blend until smooth and creamy and mousse-like. Scoop out the mixture and spoon it (or pipe it with a pastry bag) into the open egg whites. Top the yolk mixture with a sprinkle of the crumbled bacon, pressing it gently to adhere. Add some blue cheese crumbs. Slice the asparagus in half if needed (you'll need to cut it to get 18 pieces and I recommend doing it AFTER cooking) and stick it down in the eggs. Sprinkle on smoked paprika! Sprinkle on chives! Serve it. Eat it. Done.
