Inside: A fun and easy “Game of Thrones” themed recipe for your watch party!
Tonight is the night.
Season 7 finale of Game of Thrones.
Part of me can’t wait. The other part doesn’t want the finale to be over because that means another year (or two) until the next (and last) season.
Game of Thrones is a big deal in our house. It’s pretty much the only show we watch. And we make a HUGE deal out of it, because we’ve finally found a show that we BOTH love and also because we’re huge nerds. “Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.” (Tyrion Lannister)
This is how it goes:
We tuck the little one in bed and carefully back out of the room.
When we get downstairs, we light some candles. Becase, like “the night is dark and full of terrors.” (Melisandre)
We turn off our phones. We change into comfy clothes. We pour some glasses of red wine. I long for a glass of proper Dornish wine, but I settle for whatever we have on hand.
And we always make a special snack.
The snack is often my husband’s world-famous guacamole and chips.
Or maybe a couple of Sansa’s Lemon Cakes.
Tonight’s snack? Fiery Deviled Dragon Eggs
Appetizers Are Coming: Fiery Deviled Dragon Eggs
Deviled eggs are so yummy.
You can customize the filling to accommodate any palate, and if you already have a favorite deviled egg filling, feel free to substitute.
I used to struggle with making hard boiled eggs. I would just sort of guess at the timing and would often end up with a gooey yolk or a greenish, overcooked yolk. Yuck.
But then I came across Alton Brown’s genius method.
If you’ve never used his recipe, then you know nothing. (Ygritte)
It’s stupid easy to follow and fool-proof.
You don’t mess with perfection. A girl is happy with how these turned out.
Fiery Deviled Dragon Eggs Ingredients
Fiery Deviled Dragon Eggs
A Game of Thrones themed deviled egg that's easy to make and perfect for your watch party!
- 4 Hard boiled eggs, with shell on
- Food coloring
- 1/2 Jalapeno, sliced
- 1/2 Jalapeno, minced
- 2 tbsp Mayo (or sub plain yogurt)
- 2 tsp Prepared yellow mustard
- 2 tsp Dill relish
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp Sriracha
- Paprika, for garnish
Roll the eggs around on the counter until the shells are cracked but still attached to the shell.
Fill a small bowl with water, and add a few drops of your food coloring.
Place eggs in the colored water and let them hang out for a while. I used this time to pour some more wine and make sure my little "wildling" was still asleep. If you have the time, at least 20 minutes of soaking time is best.
Once they've soaked, use a spoon to fish out the egg. Remove the shell. Admire your dragon eggs.
Slice eggs in half and scoop out the yolks. Add yolks to a small bowl.
Place mayo, mustard, relish, hot sauce, black pepper, salt, and minced jalapeños into the bowl and mix well.
Spoon mixture into eggs and garnish with paprika and sliced jalapeños.
This recipe serves two as a snack. Feel free to double or quadruple as desired for a Game of Thrones party.
