Ingredients

  • 6 Hard Boiled Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1/8 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • a dash of ground Black Pepper

Garnishes:

  • Paprika
  • 1 slice of Prosciutto
  • 1 Green Onion

Equipment:

  • 1 Piping Bag

Instructions

  1. If you want to use crispy prosciutto as a garnish, prepare this first. Head your oven to 375 degrees, and place a slice of prosciutto on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes, until it is crispy.
  2. While the prosciutto is in the oven, prepare the deviled eggs. Slice the eggs in half, and use a spoon to remove the yolks and place them in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, sriracha, salt, and pepper.
  3. Mix the ingredients together using an electric mixer on a medium speed. Once throughly mixed, pour the egg yolk filling into a piping bag.
  4. Slice the tip off the piping bag. Pipe the egg yolk filling into the egg whites.
  5. Thinly slice the green onion and crumble the prosciutto. Sprinkle the paprika over the eggs and garnish each deviled egg with some sliced green onion and crumbled prosciutto. **If you are making these a few hours ahead of time, wait to add the crispy prosciutto - you want to add it just before serving the deviled eggs. (Putting the crispy prosciutto on the eggs and into the fridge will make it loose its crispness).

Recipe Notes

The crispy prosciutto garnish is a really nice touch, but it is optional. Baking the prosciutto until it becomes crispy does add 10 minutes on to the preparation time for this recipe, and you can skip it if you are in a rush or want to make vegetarian deviled eggs.
