I love the added flavor of white truffle oil, but these are also good without it. Prep: 25 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes; Stand: 10 minutes.
Yield: Makes 18 deviled egg halves
- 12 large eggs
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
- Salt, to taste
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 2 teaspoons white truffle oil (optional)
- Extra-virgin olive oil (optional)
- Garnishes: fresh chives, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
- 1. Place eggs and water to cover in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and let stand, covered, 10 minutes. Drain eggs, and rinse with cold water for several minutes. Peel eggs, and cut in half lengthwise.
- 2. Place 6 egg halves (including whites) and all additional egg yolks in a food processor. Add mayonnaise, mustard, and 1/4 cup grated cheese; blend well. Add salt, pepper, and, if desired, truffle oil. If too thick, add olive oil (or more truffle oil if you want a stronger flavor), 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to desired consistency.
- 3. Place mixture in a pastry bag with a plain or star-shaped tip (or a small zip-top plastic bag with a corner cut out), and pipe mixture into remaining egg halves. Garnish, if desired.
