These are no ordinary devilled eggs. These devilled eggs are filled with a mixture of homemade mayonnaise, shallots and salmon. Delicious as a tray passed hor d'oeuvre.
The mayonnaise recipe is delicious!! I added a tablespoon of lemon juice though. The key to is to let the oil drip VERY, VERY slowly in order for the emulsification process to take place. I pour it into the "pusher" attachtment (it has a small hole at the bottom)of my food processor. Unlike vinaigrette, homemade mayo should not separate if made correctly. It "sets up" nicely if you use this process (SEE MY PHOTO). Thank you for the recipe! UPDATE: For those of you who do not have a hole in your pusher, simply poke a small hole on the bottom of paper cup. Place the cup, hole facing the feeder, and pour the oil into the paper cup. This way the oil will dribble which is an essential step in ensuring homemade mayo to "set up". - 08 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Just a note from the "author". My original recipe did not call for mixing the "homemade mayonnaise" with the eggs, but to use as a side to top the eggs. We have always made the egg mixture with regular Hellmanns mayo and dolloped the homemade mayonnaise on top. This is the way my mother served it to us in France. It is excellent. - 29 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
8 IN THE MORNING, FORGOT TO BUY MAYO, MADE FROM THIS RECIPE. EXCELLENT. I KNOW VINEGAR KEEPS THE WHITE COLOR AND LEMON JUICE DOESN'T. EITHER WILL MAKE EGG CHANGE CHEMISTRY SO IT ABSORBS MORE OIL. I USE TABASCO INSTEAD OF BLACK PEPPER, AND THE MIXER RUINS MAYO, HAND WHISK IS SLOWER AND WON'T BREAK THE EGGS. MY ARMS ARE USED TO THE WHISK...DIDN'T REMEMBER THE EGG/OIL RATIO, THAT'S WHY I SEARCHED FOR THIS RECIPE. I JUST LIKE HOMEADE STUFF BETTER THAN SPENDING MORE AND BUYING STOREBOUGHT. FRESHER. YOU SHOULDN'T REFRIGERATE THE MAYO FOR 8 HOURS TOO, HAS TO FINISH SETTING UP BEFORE REFRIGERATING IT. HOPE THESE TIPS ARE USEFUL. THANK-YOU SO MUCH FOR A GREAT RECIPE, IN MY CASE, JUST THE MAYO. - 22 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
