Deviled egg chef’s station

Take eggs to the next level and offer a Deviled Egg Chef’s Station. The Chef can garnish the eggs as they are arranged on platters for the guests. An efficient and skillful chef can even pipe and finish deviled eggs in front of the guest.

Tips for success with deviled eggs

Here are some culinary options:

  • Filling flavors: Use foods that pipe smoothly for a luscious presentation. Try avocado, garbanzo beans (hummus), black bean, or miso.
  • Surprise: Add a surprise component under the filling, such as tapenade, pesto, bean paste, or chopped herbs.
  • Appearance of a deviled egg is the first impression. Make it count with consistent, even piping as you fill the eggs.
  • Color: You can lend a little color to the outside of a deviled egg by first steeping the whole egg in brewed tea, pickling in beets, or spinach puree.
  • Garnish: Top with smoked salmon, bacon, barbeque pulled meat, crab, lobster, fish roe, sun-dried tomato, a sprig of herbs, ham-n-cheese, or whatever your imagination invents.
