Green Onion and Oil Devilled Eggs

I am not quite sure how I even cam across this recipe online, but I am glad that I did. I have always had one job when it comes to holidays at my house, and that is making the Devilled Eggs. I have no personal recipe… I just kinda go with what feels right. Plus my family is very basic. They are not up for fancy changes, so I keep it simple with mayo and a little mustard. However, since I have moved away from home, I think it is time to get a little creative with the typical Devilled Egg.

I got this recipe from momofukufor2.com. It seems to be a blog of a self-proclaimed noodle lover, who has cooked and ate everything in the Momofuku Cookbook. This got me wondering what Momofuku is… It appears Momofuku means lucky peach, and that it is an upscale asian restaurant group, that “try their best to serve delicious food.” Seems right up my alley.

Ingredients

  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled, chilled and cut in half
  • ½ bunch of green onions, thinly sliced (about ¾ to 1 cup)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 small knob of ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sriracha (optional)

Directions

Make the green onion oil by heating up the canola oil in a small pot over high heat. When the oil is shimmery and hot, add the green onions, garlic, shallot, and ginger. Be careful, the water content will cause the oil to bubble. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the sesame oil. Salt to taste.

Remove the yolks from the eggs and place in a bowl. Mash with a fork until the yolks are crumbly. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the green onion oil. Stir and taste. If you need more green onion oil in there, by all means, add it! Fill your egg halves and top with freshly ground pepper and a squirt of sriracha, if using. Enjoy!

Notes: This recipe will make much more green onion oil than you’ll need for the eggs, but I’m sure you won’t find it hard to come up with ways to eat it. Looking for a more basic Devilled Egg? No problem… Check it out!
