Recipe: Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs.  I remember them being a treat when I was a kid.  I would love going to bridal or baby showers knowing that there'd be some deviled eggs on the table.  And some of my Grandmother's wonderful baking, too.

8 Eggs
1 Tbsp Old Bay
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
Small Ziploc Bag

Start with your eggs, I have a deviled egg plate that holds enough for 16 halves, or 8 whole eggs.  You can boil more or less, I'll leave that up to you.  Put the eggs into the pot first, then add your water.  Don't add your eggs to boiling water!  It's a mess you don't want to deal with.

When the water comes to a rolling boil, cover it.  Move it off of the heat and set a timer for 13 minutes.

When your timer goes, cool those eggs.  I normally run mine under cold water, while tipping the pot until the hot water is gone.  Then I remove the eggs.

Peel your eggs, halve them and pop out the yolks into a bowl.

Break up the yolks with a fork (or utensil of your choice).

Add in Old Bay and mayonnaise, mix it up.

Transfer the smooth mixture to a small ziploc bag.  Cut off one corner of the bag.

Pipe the yolk mixture into the whites.

You can top them with the traditional paprika.  We like to top them with bacon, chives and sometimes pork rinds.  Or just eat them plain Jane.

Paleo Staples - Old Bay

Is Old Bay Paleo?  And Whole30 compliant?

Here's the official ingredient list from the Old Bay site:

"OLD BAY® Seasoning is designed to give a characteristic spicy flavor to any food, especially seafood. The taste is spicy with refreshing undertones. The peppers and ginger lend to the spiciness while the bay and cloves help smooth it out and give it a breath menthol. OLD BAY® Seasoning is a blend of celery salt (salt, celery seed), spices (including mustard, red pepper, black pepper, bay [laurel] leaves, cloves, allspice [pimento], ginger, mace, cardamom, and cinnamon, and paprika."

Sure looks great for a Whole30, and it's fully paleo.

We season all types of fish and sometimes chicken with Old Bay. Also, it's great added to Mayonnaise (my adapted recipe coming shortly) to make Bayonnaise. Just add some Old Bay to that Mayo recipe and you're all set, just don't add to much or it will be a tad salty.

Whole30 Series: BBQ rub and grilling on a Whole30

Paleo / Whole30 rib rub? This is one we use all the time in our house. This is used to season ribs, pork shoulders, chicken, and just about any type of meat other than beef. Let it sit for at least one hour to let the salt and other seasonings do their magic, or up to a day.

2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika (mild paprika or may use smoked)
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon rubbed thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Other additions could be very fine ground coffee, various ground chilis, or a few tablespoons of maple or coconut sugar for when you're not doing a Whole30 and want a dry rub.
