This post is sponsored by the Egg Farmers of Canada, but the opinions and recipe are my own.
There are almost as many eggciting Egg jokes as there are recipes. This year I was charged by the Egg Farmers of Canada to create a Deviled Egg recipe that would be also a great lunch or dinner recipe. Of course, I jumped at the idea as I have not met a deviled Egg I don’t like. Over the years I’ve made several types of deviled eggs – Deviled Egg Chaat, Mustard & Bacon deviled Eggs, Eggsplosions, Low Cal Deviled Eggs, Festive & Elfviled Workshop Deviled Eggs and my piece de resistance is my gory looking Satan’s Spawn for Halloween.
Are brown Eggs more nutritious than White Eggs? What do you think?
Contrary to popular belief, they are not, brown eggs were laid by brown chickens and white ones are laid by white chickens. When you crack an egg and discover that the yolk is more orange, is just means that the hen was fed a corn based diet rather than a wheat one.

A scotch egg is very British. A farce or ground meat typically pork is wrapped around a soft yolk egg and then dipped in egg and breadcrumbs and fried.
Similar to that in India, a Nargisi Kofta is made when a hard boiled Egg is encased in a spiced ground Lamb mixture and fried.
This World Egg Day on Oct 9, Egg Farmers of Canada is taking a moment to celebrate the heroes and champions in our food industry who work together to deliver the fresh, local, high-quality eggs that Canadians want and enjoy. To do my part, I created this incredible recipe as a homage to the small but mighty Egg!
In this recipe, I’m combining techniques from different recipes to make these delicious Tandoori Scotch Deviled Eggs. Ground Chicken is spiced with Tandoori Masala and the generously wrapped around a hard boiled egg to make a great lunch or dinner serving. It’s secured in flour, then dipped in beaten egg and dredged in breadcrumbs before frying. But it doesn’t end there!!!!! Once cooked the egg is cut in half and the yolks are mixed with mayonnaise and chopped coriander before returning to the egg cavity. The contrast of the spices Tandoori meat together with the lightness of the deviled egg filling is mageggcal!
Make it for lunch!
