Herbed Stuffed Eggs #1 Recipe

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300 deg. Spread bread crumbs on baking sheet. Bake crumbs for about 10 minutes to dry.

Step 2

Peel eggs, halve and separate yolks from whites. Melt butter in heavy small skillet over low heat. Add herbs and stir until wilted, about 1 minute. Cool slightly. Mash yolks in small bowl. Stir in herb mixture. Season with salt and generous amount of pepper. Spoon herbed yolk mixture into egg whites.

Step 3

Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan in shallow bowl. Dip stuffed eggs in flour, then beaten egg; roll in bread crumbs, coating thoroughly. Refrigerate uncovered at least 20 minutes. (Can be prepared 6 hours ahead.)

Step 4

Heat oil in deep fryer to 360 deg. Fry eggs in batches (do not crowd) until golden brown, turning occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and serve.

Combine parsley with sage, rosemary or basil.
