My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Pub-Style Deviled Eggs

Last week my wonderful friend Joyce at October Farm sent me two more boxes of cook books, plus pastas, Russian candies, Amish dishtowels, Easter candy, some of her homemade "crack". You get the picture. It was like Christmas. I have hardly had time to look at the cook books, but I did latch on to one called The Travlin' Gourmet that I liked a lot, and I have this thing about deviled eggs. I've never met one I didn't like, except the ones with pickle relish.

The reason they called deviled eggs "deviled" is because they're supposed to be hot! However, most renditions of the snack are bland beyond belief. Not so with this spicy offering from London's Black Friar Pub. If you want to tone it down a bit, substitute diced green pepper for the jalapeno or hot banana pepper, or reduce the amount. I used 1/2 tablespoon diced jalapeno and 1 tablespoon diced green pepper. Perfect for me!

Pub-Style Deviled Eggs
Serves 8
print recipe

8 hard boiled eggs, shelled
1/4 cup good mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons finely diced onion
1 1/2 tablespoons finely diced jalapeno or hot banana pepper
2 teaspoons vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Cut eggs in half lengthwise, remove the yolk, and reserve the whites. Mash the yolks with the mayonnaise and combine with the onion, pepper, vinegar, mustard, curry powder, parsley and cayenne. Fill the egg halves with the yolk mixture; sprinkle each egg with paprika.


  1. ha! i tested almost all the recipes in that book for the travelin' gourmet and i don't remember this one! and i do i envision eating a couple of these on a toasted hotdog bun? my foodie mind works in weird ways!

  2. I think the addition of curry powder is amazing!I will try this!

  3. I LOVE devilled eggs. Never thought of putting jalapeno peppers in them but this recipe sounds like a winner! YUM!

    I am in the midst of trying to lose 10 lbs so we are all about portion control up here in the snowy Pacific Northwest. But viewing delicious recipes such as this one and others are fat free!! Happy Saturday!

  4. I love deviled eggs, I especially like them with some cooked shrimp added in, or finely minced crispy bacon bits on top. xo
