Up your appetizer game with these absolutely decadent, brisket deviled eggs!
We invited these deviled eggs straight to Cow Town with an infusion of creamy, smoked gouda and crisp apple. We’ll gently top them with morsels of tender brisket, and a zip of fresh barbecue sauce…with a crown of candied jalapeno, these brisket deviled eggs are fit for a king!
I created these brisket deviled eggs last 4th of July with a simple challenge in my mind. What would be a reasonably easy dish to bring to a potluck barbecue, that would still land you on the best cook in the neighborhood list?! I was hoping to create something visually exciting, totally decadent, and easy to prepare. Sounded like a tall order but I got to work!
Deviled eggs are a classic for a reason. Everybody loves em!
So first I elevated simple deviled egg filling with smoked gouda cheese and a little crisp shaved apple. (My grandma always did the apple in the egg filling trick and everyone loves it.) The smoked gouda lays the foundation for the barbecue style flavor profile in these beauties without ever having to slave over a smoker. The apple lends a subtle sweetness and a wonderful crunch.
Topping these eggs with brisket just felt like second nature to me… I use it ALL. THE. TIME in my recipes because we usually smoke a brisket for special occasions… or if I’m not in the mood, I have access to excellent store bought brisket just a mile from my house.
I figured you do too, so these eggs are only as difficult as you want them to be! Smoke the brisket yourself or just pick some up on the way home.
I drizzle these eggs with any of my homemade barbecue sauces from Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce to Cherry Bourbon Barbecue Sauce. You can also use the sauce they include with the brisket if your purchasing from your favorite barbecue joint.
