Deviled eggs with anchovies and rosemary


12 eggs
3 tbsp crème fraîche or sour cream
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ cup olive oil, extra virgin
½ lemon, the juice
¼ cup fresh rosemary
1 pinch coarse sea salt
1¾ oz. anchovies fillets, each cut in half
2 tbsp fresh chives
1 tsp paprika powder, for topping


1Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Fill a large bowl with ice and water. Add the eggs and cook for 8 minutes. Drain the eggs and transfer to the ice water.
2When cool, peel and cut each egg in half lengthwise. Transfer the yolks to the bowl of a food processor; refrigerate the whites.
3Add the crème fraîche, mustard, cayenne, olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, and a pinch of salt to the food processor. Process until smooth, scraping the bowl occasionally. The mixture should be soft enough to pipe through a piping bag, but not too loose. If it’s stiff, pulse in another tablespoon of crème fraîche.
4Transfer the mixture to a piping bag or resealable plastic bag with a hole snipped in one corner.
5Arrange the egg whites cut-side up in a single layer on a serving platter. Pipe the yolk mixture into the egg white cavities. Top each with an anchovy half.
6Sprinkle with chives and paprika and served immediately, or refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Helpful Hints:
