Piri Piri Deviled Eggs Recipe – Ovos Recheados
You’ll love this easy recipe for deviled eggs with a kick! I was pleasantly surprised how quickly they disappeared so I’ll be making them more often.
The word “devil” originally referred to the combination of spices, including mustard, with which the eggs are seasoned.
You may serve these as an appetizer, or a main dish. Serve them cold. Enjoy!
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Piri Piri or any hot sauce (optional) or (1/4 teaspoon piri piri powder)
Paprika for garnish
Place the eggs in a medium sauce pan and cover them with water. Boil for 7 minutes and let them sit in pan for 7 minutes.
Drain and add enough cold water to cover them. Let sit for about 5 minutes to cool.
Gently tap the eggs cracking the shell all around the egg. This will make it easy to peel.
Slice the eggs length wise and place on a serving dish.
Remove the yolks and place them in a small bowl. Mix in all the ingredients except hot sauce and paprika until incorporated. Taste and add more seasoning if desired.
Scoop about a half tablespoon of the yolk mixture into the sliced egg whites.
Garnish with more hot sauce and paprika. Enjoy!
