While i’m making devilled eggs for Refuge Ministries in Mexico, MO, this is a great opportunity to not only share my recipe, but also talk about food. Like most real food, there is little NO waste when preparing eggs.
For the meal today, I’ve hardcooked 5 dozen eggs – that’s a total of 60 eggs and of those 17 ‘failed’ which is to say there is some reason they don’t qualify for use as a devilled egg – might be the shell split, the yolk busted free, or it’s just misshapen. Whatever the reason, even when the eggs are sufficiently aged (eggs peel better when they are at least a week old), sometimes they just don’t serve this purpose. But don’t throw them away!
Heat milk to 160 degrees (about steaming)over medium heat. Add one cup hot milk to egg yolks, then blend into the remaining milk. Remain vigilant and/or whisk often to keep it from sticking and burning to the bottom of the pot. Add sugar (or honey) and spices, then reheat. This is great warm or cold.
As always, use organic, fresh, local whenever possible.
Jerry really likes this and it’s packed with calories and fat, which is important for him right now. He warms up a cup of eggnog if he has trouble falling asleep or for brekkie in the morning with his softened cereal.
