Egg-celent egg-themed dishes
It’s the VeloCityOKC team’s opinion that Easter has the best candy of the holidays (jelly beans of every type, Cadbury eggs, chocolate bunnies, there is something for everyone!). And it might just be our brains playing tricks on us, but we think that egg-shaped candy just tastes better than its straight-edged siblings. These Rice Krispy eggs are no egg-ception. Adapted from this recipe from one of our favorite Oklahoma celebrities, you’ve got to try this egg-celent treat.
- 4 Tablespoons Butter
- 1 package (10 Ounces) Mini Marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
- Sanding Sugar
- 2 Small Plastic Easter Eggs
Measure out rice cereal. In a large bowl, melt butter in microwave. Add marshmallows and stir until all are coated. Microwave butter coated marshmallows and stir until melted. Quickly add rice cereal and stir until well combined.
Spray interior of plastic egg and your hands with non-stick cooking spray. Fill both sides of the plastic egg with mixture. Smash the two sides of the egg together and close as best you can crushing the cereal a bit. Gently remove egg shaped rice krispy treat from plastic egg, place in a small bowl and sprinkle sanding sugar over the treat, set finished treat aside to harden a bit. Repeat the egg shaping steps and reapply cooking spray to egg and hands as needed.
Best served on your favorite Easter-themed deviled egg tray.
Cooking and baking not your basket of eggs? Check out these delicious deviled eggs from Chamber members around OKC. We even tried a few so we could give you some first-hand accounts of how deleggtable they are.
Looking for some egg-xtraordinary flavors? We hit up McNellie’s for their Deviled Egg Duo ($11). This dish is meant to be shared and comes with pimento cheese deviled eggs as well as smoked salmon deviled eggs. If you’re a pimento cheese fan or even just a cheese lover these eggs are filled with a silky, creamy, cheesy filling. These might just be the one to try if you don’t like the standard dill flavoring of deviled eggs. The smoked salmon deviled eggs may not be for everyone, but the salmon, a little reminiscent of smoked paprika, is a surprisingly delicious savory, salty pairing. The poppy and sesame seed garnishing add some great texture to these delicious salmon topped bites.
If all you’re jonesing for is a really delicious, beautiful, classic deviled egg, we can attest that Jones Assembly has those down. Our team found their deviled eggs ($9) to be egg-squisite. “Presentation was cute.” “One of the best I’ve ever had. Love the strong dill taste.” “This is the OG deviled egg. Just like Hillary Duff says, ‘this is what dreams are made of.’ The perfect mayo, dill, yolk combo. 10/10” “Rock solid classic deviled egg. Lots of dill and just the way I like it. Onion was a nice touch for both presentation but also for a hint of a ranch—ish herby/sweet/sour combo that brings out the dill quality even more.”
If you love a fried egg, give the spicy deviled eggs ($9), in classic or fried, at Matty McMillen’s or Hollie’s Flat Iron Grill a try. We were egg-cited to sample the fried version at Matty McMillen’s. These unique deviled eggs have a light and crunchy batter fried around the white with the filling on top. The filling has a great dill flavor with just a touch of heat that pairs nicely with the batter. They’re then served over a corn and black bean pico that’s fresh and crunchy. The hint of habanero is spicy enough to be enjoyed, but not so hot your grandma will complain. The consensus was “they’re unlike anything we’ve ever had (in a good way),” and “if you’re unsure about deviled eggs but like fried pickles give these a try.”
