    Hi everybody,

    Has any one ever froze deviled eggs? My wife is planning a party and is wondering if she could save some time and get this done in advance.... She tried looking for info on the web with no luck so I figured that if any group of people would know it would be the BYC forum. [​IMG]

    Thanks

    Honestly, I have never heard of anyone doing this. It doesn't sound like it would be that good. But just make 1 egg and freeze it to see what you think. this way you won't mess up a whole batch.

    the yolk mixture freezes well but the whites do suffer. I use a brine [1 cup non-iodized salt to 1 gallon water dissolved,] to put the whites in and keep refrigerated for up to 15 days ahead. Soak under two changes of cold water 10 mins each time; pat dry on some kitchen towels before filling with yolk mixture. FYI I grew up in an Italian restaurant-catering family... that's why I became a combat engineer?
    All y'all take care!

    Thats exactly what I wanted to know.

    If the wife decides to try it I'll post on the results.

    I never seem to have any leftover, but once the ice box got too cold, and the family wouldn't eat them, as the white really became odd.

    I hope they came out well, they are usually a party hit, here! [​IMG]

    When I do actually make them, there's never any left over to even attempt to freeze them. My husband loves them. LOL

    Good luck and let us know if it works! [​IMG]
