How to Make Deviled Eggs
Before you learn how to
make deviled eggs, you will need to boil your eggs and allow them to
cool. To determine how many eggs you will need, count on 1 whole
egg/ person. This will give each person two deviled eggs.
Add your eggs to a pot of water. Allow to come to a full boil. Place
the lid on the pan and turn off the heat. Let the eggs sit about 15
minutes. This is my preferred way of boiling eggs. The steam cooks
the eggs and it is easy to walk away and do another task while you
are waiting for them.
Peel your eggs and wash them clean. Be carefully when peeling
to leave the egg intact as much as possible, as you want your egg to
be a nice half.
Cut eggs in half with a table knife and place the yolk in a bowl.
Place egg whites on a serving platter. When all eggs are cut, mash
your egg yolks. If any egg whites have broken or don't look nice go
ahead and mash them with the yolks. This is how you make egg salad.
Add a tablespoon or more of mayonnaise and a small dab of mustard.
Add a small amount of pickle juice. Use recipe above if desired.
Blend and mash together until well combined.
Fill the egg white hole with a spoonful of egg salad or place
mixture in a ziploc bag and cut off the corner. Fill egg using the
ziploc bag as you would use a pastry bag.
Sprinkle with paprika and store in the fridge until ready to serve.
