Bright and smoky alternative to traditional deviled eggs.

This recipe is a rif on the Egg Baked Potato recipe posted at The Daily Spud. The original recipe used the outside portion of a twice baked potato to cook an egg.  Here the author used the white of an egg to present a potato salad.  My modification is to add back in the egg yolk and use an aged New York Cheddar rather than an Irish style cheese.



Break Down

Dice, Shred, and Mash

Serrate, Separate, Scoop

Cut with serrated knife and scoop out yolk

Using a serrated knife keeps the yolk from sticking.  These eggs were less than a week removed from the chicken and had super strong yolks.

Scoop White

Onion and Bacon

Saute onion and bacon until brown


Mix in Egg Yolk, Bacon, Cheese and Mayo

Lesson Learned

Emergency Egg Salad Dinner

This recipe makes WAY too much filling for the 6 little egg white shells.  I would make this again if I had a half cup of left over mashed potatoes or maybe 2 fingerling potatoes?  Certainly not more. We ended up with an emergency dinner of filling with mayo on wheat.  They would have made nice patties breaded and baked, but part of the blogger dilemma is that all of these egg salad recipes were made on the Saturday before Easter… the thought of an extra cup of potato-ish salad sitting around was too much to bear :-)!

A smoked cheese or a heavily smoked bacon would have been nice… not both… but just something that lingered a bit more on the palate.
