I know you all have hard boiled eggs you need to use up. We don’t because we celebrate Eastern Orthodox Easter, Pascha and it doesn’t happen until May 5th year. I think my kids will be hunting eggs in real grass instead of snow. But I DID have eggs I needed to use up and I made this spicy delish version of egg salad for my husband and myself the other day.
Diablo Egg Salad
6 hard boiled eggs, peeled
2 TBSP Sriracha–more or less to taste
1 teaspoon mustard
1 TBSP mayo
2 TBSP pimentos OR diced red pepper
1/2 jalapeño seeded and diced
salt and pepper to taste
in a mixing bowl mash the peeled eggs with a potato masher
mix in the Sriracha, mustard and mayo
stir in the pimentos and peppers
taste and adjust as needed with salt and pepper
add more Sriracha if desired
if it’s too hot add a wee tad more mayo the fat in it will help cut the heat
Use this HOWEVER you want. We ate it on lettuce leaves and on celery sticks. Two big soft slices of white bread would be amazing, crackers, IN deviled eggs would be divine. In fact make this into deviled eggs, just don’t mash up the whites and use a bit less sauce and such to make divine deviled eggs. Apparently I need to go boil MORE eggs. Don’t forget to check out the Sriracha recipe either, it’s really good.
