Deviled eggs are both a simple and a delicious recipe, perfect for any season of the year, served either as an appetizer or as a main meal. One of the best things about this dish is the many creative ways in which you can decorate the deviled eggs.
To make this simple recipe, we will introduce six easy-to-follow steps that will guide you through the world of deviled eggs as well as present the main health benefits of eggs.
Seeing how eggs are the main ingredients in this dish, we have decided first to analyze their main properties and health benefits. Eggs are a type of food rich in a particular macronutrient that boosts the development of our body: protein.
The egg white or albumin, in particular, contains most of the protein in this food. It also has other nutrients such as lipids, minerals, calcium, zinc, choline, magnesium, iron, and vitamins A and B. On the other hand; however, eggs lack vitamin C and are high in cholesterol.
One of the main benefits of eggs is that they're easy to digest and they're incredibly convenient for pregnant women as they contain a high amount of choline, a vitamin-like essential nutrient that is vital in a fetus' central nervous system development.
The classic tuna deviled eggs recipe is straightforward and quick to make. Although this dish can be prepared in many different ways, we will introduce one of the easiest and most delicious methods.
To make tuna stuffed deviled eggs with fried tomato sauce we only need a few ingredients.
We will need the following:
Half a dozen eggs
2 cans of tuna
1 can of diced tomatoes 500g
1 small can of bell peppers
1/2 bag fresh chives
1 small can of stuffed olives
Sugar and salt
The first thing you need to do when you want to prepare fried tomato sauce is to put three spoonfuls of oil into the pan and wait until it gets warm. After this, add the diced tomatoes and cook them, and then add a pinch of salt and sugar that will help balance out the acidity of the tomatoes.
Once all the water has evaporated, and the sauce is fried, pour half of it into a big tray - the eggs will be placed on top of it at the end - and save half in a bowl, ready to mix with the rest of the stuffing ingredients.
While you're frying the sauce, place the six eggs into a bowl and boil them for approximately 10 minutes and leave to cool for a few minutes afterward. Once the eggs have cooled down peel them and cut them in half ready to remove the yolks. Use a spoon to scoop them out, and then place the egg yolks in a separate bowl.
The first thing you need to do is chop the anchovies, chives, and bell pepper into small bits. Add all of these ingredients to the bowl of egg yolks, which you've previously mashed with a fork, and then pour the leftover fried tomato sauce on top, add the cans of tuna and mix well. Add more salt if needed.
Now that the stuffing is ready place the egg halves on the tray filled with fried tomato sauce. Grab a spoon and carefully fill out each egg. Once you have finished, add a dollop of mayonnaise on top of the deviled eggs.
Garnishing the deviled eggs is the final step in our easy homemade recipe. You can use a whole olive or only half to decorate each egg together with a slice of ball pepper placed in between them, on the tray.
To finish off, although this dish can be served at room temperature, you can leave the tray in the fridge for a few minutes and serve them chilled if you prefer.
