This recipe for Spicy Masala Devilled Eggs was created in partnership with Egg Farmers of Canada. All opinions, as always, are my own. I only write about and recommend products I use and love myself.
Call me crazy but is there anything better than a Devilled Egg to get the party started? Throw in an Indian twist to that with a touch of some spices and you're ready to roll! I was recently challenged by Egg Farmers of Canada to create a Devilled Egg recipe that was out of the ordinary and that's exactly how these Spicy Masala Devilled Eggs came to be!
No matter how low I am on groceries (which is very, very rare – I must admit), you can always find some onions, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes and eggs in my kitchen. This is because I consider these ingredients to be my must-haves and with them in tow, a quick, nutritious and tasty meal is never far behind. Eggs are always a versatile ingredient and can very easily adapt to Indian spices and flavours.
October 9th is World Egg Day, and this year Egg Farmers of Canada is taking a moment to celebrate the heroes and champions in our food industry who work together to deliver the fresh, local, high-quality eggs that Canadians want and enjoy. I'm doing my part by creating and sharing this recipe for Spicy Masala Devilled Eggs. I plan on making this again as an appetiser for our small and simple Thanksgiving meal this year.
Join me and Egg Farmers of Canada in celebrating those working together to keep us Canadians fed by watching (and sharing) this video featuring Chef Lynn Crawford and the Canadian egg farmers who share their gratitude on World Egg Day.
So tell me, how will you enjoy eggs on World Egg Day?
