Heavenly Eggs

Would you like to make a super easy, delicious and healthy recipe for one of the upcoming Spring Holidays?  If you do, then try this Heavenly Egg recipe.

Eggs are a symbol for Spring renewal, life and new beginnings.  So making this is perfect for Easter or Passover.

First, cover eggs with about an inch of cold water.  Next, boil for 3 minutes.  Then, remove them from the heat, cover and let sit for 6 minutes.

I found a fun little story in a Deborah Madison cookbook about  ”The Egg Timin’ Song”.  The story goes…”Back in the days when cooks sang in the kitchen while they worked, our Thurz always sang ‘Amazing Grace.’  She called it her ‘egg timin’ song’, and she explained, ‘Folks say they want a 3-minute egg, I sing all 4 verses.  They order an egg doner, I sing all four and repeat the first verse.  The don’t want the egg so done, I leaves off the last verse.  Singing is more pleasantsome than watching a clock.”

So, sing while you cook.  Sing, kids, sing!

Plunge the boiled eggs into a bowl of ice water. That stops the cooking process and cools them so you can peel them which is the next step.  Peel the eggs.

Carefully cut each egg in half.  Gently squeeze the yolk into a small mixing bowl.

Using a fork, mash the yolks.

Next add creaminess and flavor.  That means, a little mayo, squirt of mustard, sprinkle of parmesan cheese, and dash of salt and paprika.  Yum!

Mix it all up really good until smooth and creamy.

Then fold down the top of a ziploc baggie.  This helps keep everything clean with less mess

Fill the baggie with the yolk mixture and zip it up.  Snip off one corner of the baggie.

Place the empty eggs close together.  That makes filling them easier and quick.  Then twist the baggie so that the mixture won’t ooze out of the top.  Fill each egg by squeezing the mixture into the center.

Sprinkle a little paprika on top for more flavor and color.

Now it’s time to garnish.  Garnish is like decorating your food.  It means you add a little something to the very top.  Garnishing is the last thing you do before you serve your food. It’s kind of like a period at the end of a sentence.

I used a small piece of fresh parsley for my garnish.  You can use whatever you think looks nice, just make sure it is edible.

Here are two of my Heavenly Eggs on a plate with a Heavenly message.  I love these plates, they were given to me by my dear friend, PD Hankamer who lives in Heaven.

I really hope you make these.

Wishing you many Blessings as you Cook, Learn, and Grow!

Happy Cooking :)

Love,
Chef Lori
