How to make deviled eggs

First, peel the hard boiled eggs and toss the shells.

Second, slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Then remove the yolk and put them in a bowl.

I use the tip of a knife or spoon to help pop the yolk out of the egg.

Keep doing this until you have removed all of the yolks. Just set aside the egg whites for later.

Next prepare the egg yolks that are in the bowl. Use a fork to mash the yolks.

Once all of the yolks are mashed, add mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Combine this together.

Finally, put the yolk mixture into a ziplock bag and seal.

Tip: If you do more than 6 eggs, you’ll want to use a piping bag so that it will hold up to the yolk mixture. Sandwich bags tend to break at the seams and you’ll have yolk all over!

Trim the tip of the bag and pipe into the eggs.

Now just put the eggs on a plate and enjoy! If you want to be fancy, you can put a small dollop of egg yolk mixture in the center of the plate and add a sprig of fresh parsley to create a flower like look.

You can also sprinkle with paprika.

You can make several of these small plates to put on your table to add lots of color.

Tips and tricks:

  • I boiled my eggs and it was so simple using one of these egg timers. Once the water has reached the desired amount of boiling, the timer will turn dark red when it is finished cooking.
  • Do you know how to make hard boiled eggs in the oven? This is another option if you don’t want to use the stove top.
  • I use one of these handy Egg Keepers to tote the deviled eggs around. I have the Rubbermaid container and I love how tight the lid fits. We have taken this many of places and never had an accident. You can see all of the containers
  • You can certainly just scoop the egg mixture into the boiled eggs. However, I like to use a piping bag because it makes the so pretty! If you are just doing a few, a sandwich bag will work too. Just keep in mind if you are doing a lot, those can bust.

How to Cook Hard Boiled Eggs:

First, put the eggs and egg timer into a sauce pan. You need to fill the pan with water so the eggs are covered in about 1″ of water.

Second, place the pan on the stovetop and heat on medium high heat. The water will boil and timer will turn dark red when it is finished cooking.

Make sure to immediately removed from heat and drain the water. Then fill the pan with ice and then cold running water.

The cold water allows the eggs to cool and to stop the cooking process. Take the eggs from the water and refrigerate overnight.

You can use immediately after cool, or all the ice has melted in the pan, but I like to cool the inside of the egg completely to make deviled eggs.

Variation ideas

  • Use flavored mustard if you want to make something a little different instead of yellow mustard. Dijon mustard is a great choice.
  • Sometimes, I also sprinkle a little paprika on top. It gives the eggs a great pop of color.
  • I have even seen sliced olives on top for garnish.
  • Add hot sauce to the egg mixture to spice things up.
  • Pickle Relish- add a few spoons of sweet pickle relish to the yolk mixture.
  • Pour a little pickle juice into the yoks and mix for a new taste.

How Far In Advance Can I Make Deviled Eggs?

You can make this up to 2 days in advance. I would suggest waiting to pipe the yolk mixture into the eggs until the day you are ready to serve.

Ingredients

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/4 cup real mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Place eggs and egg timer into a sauce pan. Fill pan with water so the eggs are covered in about 1″ of water. Place onto a stovetop and heat on medium high heat. Water will boil and timer will turn dark red when it is finished cooking.
  • Immediately drain water, being very careful, fill pan with ice and then cold water. Let set for eggs to cool. Remove eggs from water, and refrigerate overnight.
  • You can use immediately after cool, or all the ice has melted in the pan, but I like to cool the inside of the egg completely to make deviled eggs.
  • Gently peel hard boiled eggs and discard shells. Slice eggs in half and gently open with your fingers and use the tip of a knife to pop the cooked yolk into a small mixing bowl. Set egg white aside. Repeat until all halves are removed of yolks.
  • Mash yolks in bowl with a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Place yolk mixture into a resealable sandwich bag and seal shut. Please note, if you do more than 6 eggs, you’ll want to use a piping bag. Sealable sandwich bags tend to break at the seams and you’ll have yolk all over! Trim the tip of the bag and pipe into the eggs.
  • Place eggs onto a plate and serve. Refrigerate covered. As shown, put a teeny dollop of egg yolk mixture in the center of the plate and add a sprig of fresh parsley to create a flower like look. Put several of these small plates on your table to add color and fun.
