Another month for the Crazy Ingredient Challenge! I’m always so excited to share with you the results of the challenge and each month it gets more and more fun (and creative). Spearheaded by the lovely Dawn at Spatula’s On Parade, this is one group of talented chef’s who come up with these recipes each month. You all ROCK!
I’ll bet you’re on the edge of your seat to see what the ingredients are… so without further suspense, August ingredients were…… Beets & Eggs!!!
Well, well, well… what do I do? I think this combo has lots of opportunity! I actually had two ideas and I’ll post the other one later in the week. I chose this one for the challenge highlight because I think it showcased the egg so much more then the other. When I made these, our landlord was over making a repair so not only was hubby a guinea pig, our landlord was as well. The verdict? They both loved the eggs.
Deviled Eggs with Fresh Beets
- 12 eggs (hard boiled)
- 1 scallion (chopped)
- 1 1/2 tablespoon fat free mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons Beaver Valley Honey Mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 3 heaped tablespoons chopped fresh beets (previously roasted/cooked)
|Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and scoop the yolks out into a medium bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork. Add all the ingredients except the beets and mix until smooth. Fold in the beets and mix until the yolk mix is pink.|
|Using a melon baller, scoop and equal amount of the yolk mix into the hollow egg half. Serve.|
If you have never roasted beets before, it’s actually quite easy. To get a good recipe, check my post on Goat Cheese & Roasted Beet Salad I did after eating at Cat Cora’s Kitchen at the Salt Lake airport. It’s a super simple way to roast fresh beets.
Since I had made Pineapple Deviled Eggs last year, I though the beets this time would be just as good. These creamy eggs were wonderful and the little nuggets of beet were the gem of the appetizer. Don’t let that pretty fuchsia color deter you…these were amazing. Deviled eggs are simple to make yet the possibilities are endless. This combo of beets and eggs was a fun and delicious challenge to do. Don’t you think?
