Deviled Ostrich Egg
This gourmet treat is a delightful twist on the classic deviled eggs, taking it to a whole new level of extravagance. The richness of the ostrich egg and the explosion of flavors from the deviled filling and toppings will make this a memorable culinary experience for everyone.
- 1 ostrich egg
- 1 cup mayonnaise*
- 4 tablespoon Dijon mustard*
- 4 tablespoon white vinegar*
- 4 teaspoon lemon juice*
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoon paprika
- Toppings: Chopped chives, diced red bell pepper, crumbled bacon, smoked paprika, or any other garnishes of your choice.
* It is important to note that the amount of mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and lemon juice in this recipe has been increased to account for the larger quantity of yolk from the ostrich egg. Keep in mind that ostrich yolks are larger than chicken egg yolks, although very similar in taste and texture.
- Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Carefully lower the ostrich egg into the boiling water and cook for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. The egg should be hard-boiled to perfection.
- Once the egg is hard-boiled, remove it from the pot and let it cool. Once it's cool enough to handle, gently peel the eggshell, revealing the beautiful white surface.
- Cut the hard-boiled ostrich egg in half lengthwise and scoop out the yolks into a mixing bowl. Add mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white vinegar, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and paprika to the egg yolks. Mash and mix everything until you achieve a smooth and creamy filling.
- Spoon the deviled filling back into the hollowed-out halves of the ostrich egg. Ensure that the filling is evenly distributed.
- Sprinkle your preferred toppings, such as chopped chives, diced red bell pepper, crumbled bacon, or a pinch of smoked paprika, on top of the deviled filling. Get creative and decorate as you wish. Slice the deviled ostrich egg into wedges or serve it as a whole centerpiece.
