CREAMY DEVILED EGGS     Back to Top

6 hard-cooked large eggs, peeled and halved
2 tablespoons Seafood Cocktail Sauce
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Paprika

Remove egg yolks from whites. Place yolks in medium bowl; mash with fork. Add cocktail sauce, mayonnaise, onion, dill, salt and pepper; mix well. Spoon or pipe mixture into egg white halves. Sprinkle with paprika. Makes 12 deviled eggs

TIPS:
For best results when preparing hard-cooked eggs, make sure there is enough cold water in saucepan to cover the eggs. Bring water to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low so that the water stays just below a boil. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes. If eggs are used straight from the refrigerator, the longer cook time would be best.

Immediately place cooked eggs into ice water to stop the cooking process and prevent the yolks from turning a greenish tint.

To remove shell, crack it by tapping gently all over. Roll egg between hands to loosen shell, then peel, starting at the large end. Hold egg under cold running water to help ease off shell. Fresher eggs may be more difficult to peel.

For ease in spooning filling into egg white halves, place filling into plastic food storage bag; cut about 1/2-inch off corner of bag. Squeeze bag gently to dispense filling.

 ~APPLE PIE BAKED IN AN APPLE~

5-6 Granny Smith apples (make sure they can stand on their own)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
pie crust (homemade or pre-made)

1) Preheat oven to 375F.

2) Cut off the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon or melon baller very carefully, as to not puncture the peel.

If youre a skilled interior apple excavator, salvage as much as you can so you can use it for Step 2. I, on the other hand, am not skilled so I just had to throw my interior apples away and chop up additional apples for filling.

3) Remove skin from remaining apple(s) and slice very thinly. These apple pieces will give you the additional filling needed to fill the four apples you are baking.

Mix sliced apples with sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. If you prefer more or less cinnamon make adjustments as desired. Same goes for the sugar.

Scoop sliced apples into hollow apples.

4) Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips. You can also add a strip of pastry inside the top of the apple almost like a liner to add a little more texture/sweetness to the pie.

Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.

5) Place apples in an 88 pan. Add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan.

Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.

Makes 4 baked apple pies (in the apple).

Spike left this world
June 2008.

We who love her miss her greatly.
