The Mayo Swap To Try In Your Next Batch Of Deviled Eggs
By KATHERINE BECK
Deviled eggs are little hand-held apps that are ideal for the holidays and always a crowd favorite, and classic recipe usually calls for the yolks to be mixed with mayo or salad dressing, ground mustard, salt, pepper, and optional paprika. While mayo is the standard, if you're not a fan of this condiment, try this alternative for a fun twist.
Try swapping out the mayo in your devilled egg filling for full-fat sour cream. A proper rich sour cream still creates the ideal craveable, creamy texture for your deviled egg filling, but gives it a little tanginess that plays well with plenty of topping options; plain yogurt or crème fraîche can also provide a similar effect.
As for the recommended amount of sour cream to use, Foodal's recipe for deviled eggs calls for ¼ cup of sour cream for 6 extra-large eggs, while Simply Recipes calls for ½ cup sour cream for 12 standard large eggs. If you're not averse to mayo, try a combination of mayonnaise and crème fraîche for an extra-delicious filling.
