We LOVE deviled eggs! We love them so much that we are always trying to think up new ways to enjoy them. We recreated this classic recipe using our favorite sardine rillettes.
We are continuing our sailing recipes this week. If you are out sailing, you can enjoy beautiful, homecooked meals too! We loved cooking on the water during our recent trip sailing around Cinque Terre, Italy, the South of France and Corsica. Of course, you can also enjoy these sardine rillettes deviled eggs at home, with your family and friends.
We love sailing and we are continuously looking for recipes to add to our repertoire of delicious recipes that can be prepared while living on a sailboat. In our opinion, sailing recipes need to be 1/ delicious 2/ “doable” on a sailboat 3/made of ingredients that can be found while traveling or easily brought on the boat with us and 4/ require few cooking tools to prepare as we are always somewhat limited in terms of the machines and cooking gear we can carry with us onto the sailboat. This recipe meets all of this sailing recipe criteria and remains one of our personal sailing favorites. We hope you will give it a try on your next sailing adventure and let us know what you think!
One of the most beautiful things about sailing is the stillness. Looking over the water, enjoying the silence, soaking in every beautiful moment and feeling absolute peace. Then there are other moments, noisy moments, typically surrounding mealtime. Or is this just us? The food and the making of the food on the sailboat bring life and excitement and noise onboard. We heart these moments too.
These sardine rillettes deviled eggs remind me of the beauty of mixed cultures. I am American and Hugo is French. We love sharing our cultures and traditions, and creating our own, each day. When our families come together, we all create a beautiful circle of mixed cultures and traditions. I shared Thanksgiving with Hugo. He shared the January epiphany tradition of eating a “galette des rois” with me. Each time we cook together, we combine our energies to create something that is new and fresh and unique.
This recipe reflects that harmony. Deviled eggs are classically American and sardine rillettes are typically French. Bring them together and you create cross-cultural perfection in several delicious bites.
We enjoyed these as an “apéritif” – before dinner with one (or two!) glasses of rosé. They are lovely to serve at home as well when having friends over as well. They are a fabulous starter but can also be served as a healthy lunch or dinner option if you increase the portion size.
(Thank you so much to our lovely hosts at Saucy Saturdays for letting us share this recipe with them!)
