I love doing deviled eggs this time of the year. I made these and brought them to a friendsgiving a few weeks back and they were a big hit. Just like most of my mash-ups, I realized that deviled eggs and street corn share one main ingredient – mayo – and took things from there. Adding the corn into the deviled mixture gave these a nice texture that usually isn’t present in deviled eggs, and garnishing them with extra corn, cheese, and cilantro really drove home the street corn flavor.
Everyone likes to ask for tips on peeling eggs. Sorry to tell you but there arent really any true tips. I do know that the older an egg is the easier it is to peel.
Since corn isn’t in season right now, I used frozen corn and charred it on a sheet pan.
Blend it all up smooth so you can pipe it on to the eggs.
Make sure to taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
I highly recommend using a piping bag for deviled eggs. It makes them look so much better!
These were so tasty! A perfect merging of street corn and deviled egg flavors.
These will definitely be in my deviled egg permanent rotation.
