In my (seemingly) never-ending quest for the best deviled egg recipe, I came across this one from a show on the Food Network that I will admit I have never seen.  I also found the video that goes along with it.  I have never heard of fried develed eggs before, but it is definitely a southern twist to throw anything into the fryer!

Deviled Egg Ingredients:
1 dozen eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1 tablespoon chopped chives
Dash hot sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup all-purposeflour
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup panko crumbs
Parsley, for garnish
Peanut oil, for frying

Deviled Egg Directions:

Add the eggs to a large saucepan filled with cold water. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let sit in the water for 14 minutes.
Peel the eggs and slice lengthwise. Remove the yolks to a bowl. Add the mayonnaise, Dijon, lemon zest, chives, hot sauce and salt and pepper. Mash the yolks together with a wooden spoon. Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed. Fill the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites.

Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, add 1 cup of flour and season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat the eggs, in a third bowl, add 1 cup of panko.

Dip the eggs into the flour, then the egg and finally into the panko. Gently put the eggs into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with parsley.

I am often asked by visitors “What’s a po-boy?” so I thought this short video clip would be a great addition to this site dedicated to New Orleans food.  The video traces the history of the po-boy to the strike by the streetcar motormen and conductors in 1929.
