More and more you see recipes for deviled eggs. It may seem like déjà vu but these appetizers draw massive applause. For her cooking school, Cooking by the Book, Suzi has to have appetizers for 20 or 30 people ready to go 5 nights a week. She’s discovered that people simply love to gobble deviled eggs down.
But eggs for 20 or 30? That’s a big pot of boiling water. And boiling eggs to make them hard can be tricky: the water running low, some eggs cracking, some overcooking and turning green …
Lucky for Suzi, she has the ideal appliance for cooking eggs [and more]: the Jenn-Air® Steam and Convection Oven. It’s a “smart” appliance, a very smart one. The oven comes with a touch screen. It says “10:15” in the photo here but that screen can do so much more. Press “Most Used” and just navigate to “eggs,” select “hard cooked” and press “OK.” No water worries. No watching. The oven knows those eggs need sixteen minutes.
Let the eggs cool then devil away. Need some good deviled eggs recipes? You want Deviled Eggs by Debbie Moose. That’s where we found this recipe with chipotle and orange zest. It’s hot and, no, the orange zest does not put the fire out. But you will enjoy every bite.
