A Devil of a Good Time

Hi everyone! As we mentioned in our last post we were preparing for some fun. Well, this week we are off to our neighbor to the North to meet some new friends and enjoy some family time. Yep, it’s another road trip; although not quite as epic as the one a few years ago that took us to many of the same places. little devils

So while we are away, you’ll forgive us for not checking in on many of your wonderful blogs. We’re going to unplug for a short time and recharge. We’ll be back next week with another French recipe and hopefully some great vacation stories to share. Lobster Devils

Until then, we thought we’d share this little non-recipe of a recipe with you. It was a HUGE hit in our house and it just happens to involve lobster which is reminiscent of that trip a few years back. Just search “lobster” on our site and you’ll see what we mean. deviled eggs

We took a basic deviled egg recipe – hard-boiled eggs, add the yolks to a bowl, and mix them with Dijon and mayo. This time we then added a bit of dill, some Champagne vinegar, diced shallots, and of course some chopped up lobster. (We had claws on-hand after a tasty special at Costco.) The measurements on today’s recipes are approximates. You can easily adapt this to your own taste preferences. lobster deviled eggs

Once the mixture was added back into the egg whites, we topped them with a pinch of truffle salt, some chives and a sprinkling of paprika (regular, not smoked, as we didn’t want to diminish the taste of the lobster). Now you can see why these were such a hit. Lobster Deviled Eggs with Truffle Salt

Mike and I both gave them 4 spoons. Hands-down. No questions. Miss A gave them 100 spoons. I have never seen her eat so much of a non-dessert food in my life. I’m not kidding. She put these little devils (pun intended) away! But Mr. N, he insists on saying they were 3-1/2 spoons….despite also devouring them and fighting with his sister over the last one. Hmmm. I’ve determined his vote is due to either not wanting to appear as a conformist, or that it wasn’t dessert and therefore doesn’t deserve a 4 spoon vote. IMG_7151

What I’m trying to say, is that you may as well consider this one of the rare 4-spoon all-a-rounders. Now do you think I should add it to our index page for four spoon dishes. Hmm…

I’ll ponder that while we’re away. Enjoy your week everyone! Print this recipe: Lobster Deviled Eggs

    Hi Kristy! Sorry I’ve been MIA. Hope you are enjoying the summer with your beautiful children. :) I have never had deviled eggs until I came to the US but ever since I tried my first bite, I fell in love. I bought a special plate for it too, but haven’t really made one myself (but I’m the one who eats at least 3 pieces at potluck or any party when this dish is served). Yours look fancy and beautiful. I gotta try your recipe!!!!!

    What a great take in an old favourite Kristy, I love the lobster addition. Did you use a cake decorating tip to add it back? Thanks for reminding me of this old favourite, I’ve got a cocktail party coming up and these would be a beautiful addition.

    Devilled Eggs are awesome, but don’t try to take them on a picnic! They don’t hold up well to being bounced around in a tupperware box in the back of a car :p.

    Yours look lovely Kristy, and I love the addition of lobster (you know I almost never eat lobster… it’s not as popular (or common) in Europe as in the US I think…?). I hope you’re all having a nice trip… hope you’ll share some photos on your return!

      LOL! These definitely don’t travel well. That’s okay – we would never have any left to travel with. The kids are fiends with these. (As are the adults!) Pics of the trip coming soon. :)

    Yay for northern friends! (sorry, just had to work that in there ;-)). These devilish eggs look delish and I tell you, you and your hubby have me dreaming of lobsta’ all of a sudden! “I have never seen her eat so much of a non-dessert food in my life” heehee, love it. (Champagne vinegar curls my toes).

    These do sound good, Kristy. I can see why they were so spoon-worthy. Are you sure Mr N isn’t from East Germany? He’s one hard judge to please. :)
    I hope you all have a wonderful time away.

    I love the look of these eggs and I think the Champagne vinegar would give them a beautiful flavour. Amazing how Miss A could eat so many of these. 100 Spoons! Is that the record? Enjoy your time away – sounds like it will be amazing xx

      I don’t think it’s quite a record, but certainly close. And I do think these would move into her favorite food category. It’s the only way she will eat eggs. :)
