Occasionally, Scott likes to get creative and mess around in the kitchen. Once upon a weekend afternoon, he hard-boiled some eggs and decided to use his friend’s Best Boy brand Sriracha Mustard and Redhead Hot Sauce to make deviled eggs for me. Because I like deviled eggs, and he likes me.
Standing back to let him create, but kind-of-sort-of hovering, my tongue twisted and I called them “hard-deviled” eggs. Checking back later on his progress, I again inadvertently called them “hard-deviled” eggs. Returning a third time to sample the results, I purposely called them “hard-deviled” and that was that – the name stuck. I was impressed with both his flavor and heat layering – the sriracha mustard, the hot sauce, and a spicy sweet pickle – and the pickle added a nice crunch! I’m happy to say the finished result was FANTASTIC, and Scott made it his mission to keep a constant supply in the ‘fridge for any time we need a quick protein boost to stave off hunger pangs. Kudos to Scott and Best Boy!
8 eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and halved (Why 8? He never boils the entire carton of eggs so I will always have eggs for baking – gotta love this guy…)
6 each – Famous Dave’s spicy sweet pickle chips, chopped
5 teaspoons Best Boy Sriracha Mustard*
7 teaspoons Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Best Boy Redhead Hot Sauce*
Cut the eggs in half length-wise and scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Spoon the filling into the egg white halves. Cover and refrigerate.
*Best Boy has an award-winning deli mustard that is quite delicious if you want less heat, and “redhead” is one of a trio of fabulous hot sauces (a super hot, fruity Blonde, a smokey Brunette and the flavorful Redhead).
