Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon drained and chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, plus extra slivers for garnish
  • 6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled, cut in half, and yolks mashed in a bowl
  • 6 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons drained and finely chopped capers
  • 1/8 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

Gently press the sun-dried tomatoes between several layers of a paper towel to remove excess oil.

Combine the thoroughly mashed yolks with the sour cream and lemon juice. Blend in the sun-dried tomatoes, rosemary, capers, and garlic powder. Taste, then season with salt and pepper.

Fill the whites evenly with the mixture and garnish each egg half with slivers of sun-dried tomato.

Deviled Eggs Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Deviled Eggs Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
