This Irish Deviled Egg recipe is a fun twist on the classic St. Patrick’s Day recipe corned beef and cabbage.
We’re more than halfway through February and in just a few short weeks it will be cabbage’s time to shine! I eat cabbage all year long. It’s quick and easy to make and I love it stuffed, roasted, or boiled but on St. Patrick’s Day cabbage gets to be a real star right alongside it’s faithful companion corned beef. These two make quite the pair and it’s no wonder why. They are pretty much amazing together. I usually make Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls for dinner on St. Patrick’s Day but since I’m doing my best to stick to low carb I’ll be skipping the mashed potatoes, parsnips, and carrots. That doesn’t mean I’m going to miss out on corned beef and cabbage though and I have come up with a really fun, delicious, low carb way to enjoy them. Say hello to Irish Deviled Eggs!
I know, it sounds a little odd at first but as soon as you bite into one you’re going to be sold. The corned beef and cabbage add just enough flavor that you know you’re celebrating St. Patty’s Day. I used sliced corned beef from my deli. It only took a slice or two for the eggs and the rest went on a Reuben sandwich much to my guy’s pleasant surprise. the cabbage was also finally diced and then microwaved just long enough to soften it. Then I added mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and a little salt to the egg yolks and mixed them up with an immersion blender to get the filling nice and smooth. that’s a trick Melinda taught me and now I wouldn’t do it any other way. It makes the egg yolks come out so nice and creamy. Pipe the filling into the egg yolks and Voila! Irish Deviled Eggs.
Whether you are throwing a St. Patrick’s Day party or just hanging out at home with the family you can serve these along with some green beer, and maybe a Mint Oreo Layered Dessert and you’ve got yourself a St. Patrick’s Day dinner fit for a king…or maybe a leprechaun.
