A Recipe for Stuffed Eggs, Tasha Tudor Style

Updated on February 1, 2016

Let's Make Stuffed Eggs Tasha Tudor Style -- Very Simple, VERY Easy, and Really Tasty

Tasha Tudor is an American icon -- a great storyteller as well as an excellent keeper of the home. She really enjoys cooking and, when I found her book at the library, I had to try some of her recipes.

Now, I'm not much of a cook, but these simple stuffed eggs (referred to by many as "deviled eggs") with a special ingredient came out great and weren't around for long.

Stuffed eggs are always a safe bet for pot-luck meals and parties.


Gather the Ingredients for Your Stuffed Eggs

It's a short list....

  • 12 Eggs

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • 1 cup Mayonnaise

  • 4 Tbsp French Dressing (recipe for homemade dressing below) <--This is that "special ingredient" I was referring to.

  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • Paprika


Preparing the Eggs - Boil, Drain, Cut

And just in case I need to spell it out....

  • Boil the eggs gently, about 20 minutes
  • Drain, run cold water over them
  • Peel the eggs
  • Cut eggs in half lengthwise

Come on, I KNOW you can do it!

But ... how DOES one smoosh, you ask?

  • Put the yolks in a large bowl
  • Set aside the halved egg whites on a plate
  • Smash the yolks with a fork
  • Add salt and pepper along with the mayonnaise and French dressing and mix well

Recipe for Homemade French Dressing for the Stuffed Egg Yolk Mixture

Mix together....

1/2c Olive Oil

1/8c Cider Vinegar

1 sm Yellow onion, peeled

3 Cloves garlic, peeled

3 TBS ketchup

1 Teasp. sugar, salt and pepper

1 TBS dry mustard

Few drops of Tabasco

Few drops of Worcestershire





(But don't chop the herbs!)

Now Fill the Egg Whites

After you have mixed the yolks and French dressing until light and fluffy, you will need to scoop this mixture into the egg white halves.

      I'm a great admirer of Tasha Tudor's art and her books. This recipe sounds great too. I inherited a stack of deviled egg plates from my mother-in-law, so I should use them.

      I have always called these deviled eggs, also. But somehow your term seems more fitting.

      I have made these many times, call them "Deviled Eggs" though I like the word "stuffed" better:-) Have never heard of Tasha Tudor, thanks for the introduction.
