CAVIAR DEVILED EGGS WITH DILL:

  • 4 T mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. roasted red pepper, minced
  • 2 tsp. fresh dill, minced
  • few drops of lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Black Caviar for garnish
Remove the egg yolks to a small bowl and mash with a fork.  Add mayonnaise, dijon, red pepper, dill, salt and pepper and mix well.  Place mixture in a plastic bag and snip one corner.  Pipe the filling into the empty egg white shells.  Garnish the tops with a small bit of caviar on a tiny coffee spoon.   Chill until ready to serve (cover with plastic wrap if possible).
HOW TO BOIL EGGS:

Here’s How

  1. PLACE eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. ADD cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. HEAT over high heat just to a rapid boil. REMOVE from burner. COVER pan.
  2. LET EGGS STAND in hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra large).
  3. DRAIN immediately,then place them in a bowl of ice water, peel immediately.  It is recommended to use older eggs like those that are set to expire.

Note:  to peel; Crack the egg and find the air pocket, then find the very thin film that surrounds the egg, start peeling!  It helps for peel under water.   Refrigerate until ready to use.

How about this for the display!

My Daughter-in-Law, Michelle had this at her brunch.  I loved it and ordered it at Williams-Sonoma. (You can also use it to display colored Easter Eggs!)
