    Hammy Deviled Eggs

    Thanks to Marcus Nilsson for the fantastic shot!This week's podcast featured our porcine recipe for deviled eggs, that picnic/barbecue/family reunion staple. Adding ham to the eggs makes them a meal! Just break out the dark beer!

    This recipe is cribbed from our James Beard-nominated cookbook HAM: AN OBSESSION WITH THE HINDQUARTER. Click on the title to find out more.

    And to hear our podcast? You know. Check out the media player on the main recipe page. Or look for it here on iTunes--or under "Cooking With Bruce And Mark" wherever fine podcasts are found.

    So get crackin'! There's not much of summer left.


    Makes 12 deviled egg halves

    • 6 large eggs
    • 4 ounces (1/4 pound) smoked, wet-cured ham, such as a spiral-sliced ham (but any sugary coating removed), finely chopped into 1/4-inch bits
    • 1 medium scallion, minced
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (regular, low-fat, or fat-free)
    • 2 tablespoons minced celery (about 1/2 a small rib)
    • 2 teaspoons prepared jarred white horseradish
    • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon minced tarragon leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
    • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, optional
    • Several dashes hot red pepper sauce, such as Tabasco sauce, to taste

    1. Set the eggs in a large saucepan, cover them with cool water until the water itself stands about 1 inch over the eggs, and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 2 minutes, then cover the pan and set off the heat for 7 minutes.

    2. Carefully drain the pan over the sink, leaving the eggs inside; then run lots of cold tap water into it to bring the eggs to room temperature. Peel off the shells under a stream of cool water.

    3. Split the eggs in half lengthwise and use a little spoon to scoop the yellow yolks into a large bowl, taking care not to break or tear the whites. Save these back on a plate.

    4. Mix the yolks with all the remaining ingredients: the ham, scallion, mayonnaise, celery, horseradish, vinegar, tarragon, dry mustard, cayenne (if desired), and the hot red pepper sauce. The back of a fork will mash the yolks fully into the mixture. Then use a small spoon to pile this mixture back into the indentations in the halved egg whites.

    5. Place on a platter, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours before serving so the flavors meld a bit.
