Who knew deviled eggs could get even more devilish? These fried deviled eggs are a treat!
I am so excited to be hosting a new blog event that is low-pressure and much like one I participated in way back when I was first blogging (Crazy Cooking Challenge) and it is called Fantastical Food Fight. It is open to any bloggers that would like to join in. We have an ingredient or specific dish theme for each month and will all make recipes to fit the theme! You can read up on the details and sign up for the mailing list here. Our first post theme is DEVILED EGGS -- just in time for Thanksgiving!
I thought that I had a ton of deviled egg recipes on my pin boards...and then it turns out that I really didn't. I made Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs last Thanksgiving and they were SUCH a hit. So I felt like I wasn't going to really find anything to top those....and then I found Fried Deviled Eggs.
Oh yes, fried. I figured why not. So I wanted to do a test run before committing to making a ton for Thanksgiving. In my opinion, these are best for small crowds and served fairly fresh out of the fryer. This recipe comes from Pat and Gina Neely and can be found on the Food Network website. I personally think they taste like a fried egg sandwich :) I did a half batch, but will share the full recipe. Be sure to stop by my fellow Food Fighters' blogs linked at the bottom of the page. I'm so excited to see what variations of deviled eggs they have in store for today!
And stay tuned...next month our theme is Shortbread Cookies!
