The first Christmas recipe that I am posting this year is this! I decided to start with the appetizers, since last year I posted lots of sweet ideas. And since now the circumstances changed and I can barely eat sweet, I want to switch the order.

Growing up in Romania I used to have these eggs everytime we had a celebration. They still are a very beloved appetizer, although it's a little bit heavy, if you ask me. This is why we only eat it on special occasions😅 once you have one, you cannot stop, that's how good they are😍

My personal touch to these devilled eggs was a yummy Asian marinade in which I have kept the eggs for a couple of hours after boiling them. This is how they got the beautiful dark colour and extra flavour.

For the eggs


  1. Marinate the eggs

    Mix all the ingredients specified in the section "marinade" and add the peeled and boiled eggs to them. Marinate the eggs for 3-4 hours in the fridge or overnight.

    I have boiled the eggs exactly 8 minutes from the time they started boiling and then I put them into a bowl with cold water and ice. This will ensure a smooth peeling without efforts. 

  2. Filling the eggs

    After the eggs have marinated, pat them dry with a clean paper towel and cut them in half. Remove the egg yolks and add them to a bowl, together with the mayonnaise, mustard, chives, salt and pepper. Mash everything well with a fork, then put the mixture into a piping bag and start piping the filling into each egg white.

    Garnish with extra chives and black pepper. Enjoy!
