Romanian Deviled Eggs, or stuffed eggs are a real treat and called Ovă Umplute. They do not take the credit for coming up with deviled eggs, but they do make them a little differently. We thoroughly enjoyed them as our starter for our Romanian International Cuisine meal.
What makes Romanian deviled eggs different is the use of horseradish and minced white onion. It adds a lovely little kick to the bite. We also made some with the addition of ham which was also lovely. These would be excellent for just about any occasion.
Deviled eggs are always a hit and there are never any left over. The incredible edible egg! The recipe calls for boiling the eggs for 20 minutes but please make your hard-boiled eggs however they come out best with a perfect yellow yolk. I now always make my eggs in my instapot. They come out perfect every time in just 5 minutes, they peel beautifully and the yolks are perfectly yellow.
In Romania they also make stuffed eggs with pork and duck liver pate, I am sure that would also be a wonderful addition!
