What You'll Need
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons Frank's RedHot Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped or julienned fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced celery, leaves reserved for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced carrot
  • 1 small serrano pepper, very thinly sliced
  1. Bring a large pan of water to a boil over high heat. Cautiously lower eggs into water with a slotted spoon, then lower heat to maintain a gentle boil for 10 minutes. Remove eggs to an ice bath and cool until barely warm (2 to 3 minutes).
  2. Peel eggs fat-​end first, rinse, and slice in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks to a bowl without breaking the whites. Choose the twelve nicest looking egg-​white halves.
  3. In a bowl, combine yolks, mayo, sour cream, 1/4 cup hot sauce, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons blue cheese, celery salt, pepper, mustard, parsley, and half the cayenne. Mash yolks and mix thoroughly until smooth and evenly combined. Stir in minced celery, and carrots.
  4. Collect mixture to one corner of a large sealable plastic bag. Cut off the tip of the corner and pipe mixture into hard-​boiled egg whites.
  5. Garnish each Buffalo deviled egg with remaining cayenne and blue cheese, and top each with a celery leaf, a few drops of Frank’s, and (for the heat-​seekers) a thin slice of serrano.

Delicious flavors in a deviled egg. Unless I'm misreading, the ingredients call for 2 teaspoons of hot sauce but the instructions say to add 1/4 cup. I very nearly added 1/4 cup when I realized that seemed like way too much (and I was even increasing the recipe by half). So I started with 2 teaspoons and ended up with about 2 tablespoons total before it tasted right to me.
