Cajun Style Deviled Eggs #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper our mission is to make something that can be served on a tray. First thing that came to mind was deviled eggs. I LOVE deviled eggs. There are so many ways you can prepare them and serve them. Last week as you may know I was in Baton Rouge Louisiana, the capital of Cajun food and I can not get enough of it. My trip inspired me for today’s recipe which is Cajun Style Deviled Eggs.

These eggs are delish! They have a slight kick of heat from the Cajun seasoning, but not over baring, and to boot they are topped with a piece of shrimp. I love shrimp and Cajun flavors together. These deviled eggs are perfect for serving at your next party. I think it’s a great change-up from the traditional deviled eggs.

Let me give you a little tutorial on how to make the perfect hard-boiled egg. You know the one that comes out with yellow yolks and not green. Just add your eggs to a pot, make sure the eggs are not touching and just fill the pot with water to cover the eggs. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Run the pot with the eggs under cold water to stop the eggs from cooking. Let the eggs cool and peel. A friend of mine told me to prevent the shell from sticking to the eggs use older eggs. Don’t buy fresh from the market, but of course don’t use expired eggs. 🙂 It worked like a charm.

To make the filling I used the cooked egg yolks, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, white vinegar, cajun seasoning and smoked paprika. Mix it together with a fork until smooth. I placed my filling in a lunch baggie, cut the corner and squeezed the filling into the center of the egg. Perfect! No need for salt and pepper. These eggs are seasoned perfectly.
