Watercress-Horseradish Deviled Eggs

Fresh and so springlike, watercress brings bright flavor while horseradish adds bite to cut the richness of the yolk.

Ingredients

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped watercress, plus leaves for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons drained prepared horseradish

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, cover eggs with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12 minutes. Drain eggs; run under cold water until cool enough to handle.

  2. Peel and halve eggs lengthwise; remove yolks and transfer to a bowl. Mash with a fork; mix in mayonnaise, mustard, and vinegar. Press through a sieve to make smooth. Stir chopped watercress and horseradish into yolk mixture.

  3. Using a pastry bag fitted with desired tip (we used plain and star tips), pipe yolk mixture into whites. Garnish with watercress leaves. Serve immediately, or chill up to 2 hours.

Cook's Notes

Instead of piping the filling with a pastry bag and tip, you can use a resealable plastic bag with a corner snipped off. Or simply spoon it into the egg whites.
