Let’s go Giants, Jets, Patriots, Cowboys, Vikings, Steelers? As you can tell, football is not my sport. However, you put me in front of the television at a bar or with a group of my friends, sipping on a cold cider and eating delicious food and I will root for any team. To be honest, I can watch hours and hours of football and still be confused by all the plays and rules. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to watch it, especially with a group of football loving friends who get so into the game and then there is me pretending to cheer for whoever and stuffing my face with game day snacks. So today’s blog post might not be about my insights on this year’s football season, however, this post includes a delicious game day recipe featuring the best hot sauce in the world…Frank’s RedHot.
Although, my university didn’t have a football team, so tailgating was not a huge thing. However, Sunday’s were always dedicated to football, so in college and now today, I do find myself going over my friends’ apartments to watch the big game and of course you can’t go over empty handed. So when it comes to my favorite game day snacks, cheap, simple, yet tasty is the goal, which is why classic deviled eggs with a spicy spin is the perfect dish.
Ordinary deviled eggs can be boring which is why my not so secret ingredient is Frank’s RedHot sauce because adding the perfect amount of spice to your food makes any dish better and more interesting. Plus, no game day party is complete without Frank’s RedHot sauce, the #1 brand of hot sauce in America.
Ingredients – Makes 12 deviled eggs
6 large hard boiled eggs
2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
Dill for garnishing
Frank’s RedHot sauce for garnishing
Step 1: Hard boiled eggs
- You can easily wait for a pot of water to boil and your eggs to cook, but my favorite hack that saves tons of time is buying eggs that are already hard boiled like the Eggland’s Best Hard Cooked, Already Peeled Eggs. This package of already cooked eggs saves cooking and peeling time and really no clean up necessary.
Step 2: The filling
- After you cut your hard boiled eggs in half, now it’s time to scoop out the yolk and place the yolks in a mixing bowl and mash them together.
- When it comes to the filling it’s super simple. I add a generous amount of mayo and a dollop of yellow mustard, salt, and pepper (exact measurements will be on the bottom). The mayo makes the filling super creamy and the mustard gives it a little tang. However, if your mixture isn’t creamy or smooth enough feel free to add more mayo.
Step 3: Filling the eggs
- Depending on your time and patience level you can either scoop your filling into a plastic bag, squeeze the filling into the corner, and then snip of the corner and pipe the filling or if that is too tricky you can simply spoon out the mixture using a small spoon. I attempted the pipping trick, although it’s not super neat, but at least they are delicious.
Step 4: Garnish
- My favorite part…the garnish. Feel free to add whatever you want to turn your deviled eggs from simple into not so simple. My favorite garnishes to add is a little bit of dill and a whole lot of Frank’s RedHot sauce, which is made from 5 real ingredients and the perfect balance of flavor and heat. I promise that the added touch of spice will make your deviled eggs the talk of the party.
