If you like deviled eggs, you’ll love these Deviled Eggs with Lemon Zest, Capers and Chives. Flavorful, pretty and super easy especially if you have an Instant Pot!
I know, I know…there are a million deviled eggs recipes to be had; why on earth did I think another was needed. I guess because I’ve never really loved most of those I’ve tried. Especially if one main ingredient is pickle relish. I don’t like it in tuna salad, egg salad or deviled eggs, preferring to come up with a combination of ingredients that I find more appealing and these Deviled Eggs with Lemon Zest, Capers and Chives fit the bill.
Perfect timing too; although I always love hard boiled eggs over the winter holidays, with Easter is coming they are a great way to use up a lot of hard boiled eggs.
So, I have had a week of a LOT of hard boiled eggs. I had a new toy I still had in the box and decided to test my Instant Pot pressure cooker and hard boiled eggs were the first thing I tried…and then tried again…and again. I hard boiled so many eggs that I found myself in the middle of a blizzard yesterday without an egg in the house.
I couldn’t quite take in that each and every time there were so perfect. So yellow. The peels almost fell off. If I never do another thing with this magic appliance, I will love it forever for this one reason alone.
If you have a pressure cooker and want to try the method I used I’ve included it in the notes for this recipe. I have to tell you after my experience I would urge you to get an electric pressure cooker if you don’t already have one just for the hard boiled egg making alone. I have never had such perfectly cooked, beautiful and easy to peel eggs ever. I mean NEVER EVER!
While testing my new appliance I noticed several posts from other people with their version of the perfect recipe for hard boiled eggs…wow; there are a million! My friend Jane shares her recipe for the perfect egg boiled in water on the stovetop and Alton Brown has a recipe for using your oven and a muffin tin.
So boil yourself some eggs and try something new; this recipe has a lot of flavor and is brightened with a touch of lemon. I had so many egg things in the fridge I asked my neighbor Amy over to help me ‘test’ them. She tried one of these eggs and I only wish I had a video or at least an audio of that moment. ‘Wow; these are great; I’ve never had a deviled egg taste like this!’
I do believe I gave her that sideways glance, you know, sort of a ‘what did you expect’ look? There would be no point if it was going to taste like all the others, right?
