I have a confession. I don't like hard-boiled eggs; they smell like sulfer and the yolk is dry and unappetizing. So why do we have a recipe for deviled eggs? Because they are worlds away from your standard, mealy salad condiment. A deviled egg is a hard-boiled egg whose yolk has been taken out, mixed with mayo, mustard, and spices, and then put back into the empty egg-white. This ultimately creates a moist, flavorful bite of food that is a perfect snack for any time of day.
As it turns out, eggs are one of the few food items that can be cooked directly in a kettle. So, I decided to take this opportunity to show you how to make your own deviled eggs. Hopefully you, too, will see the potential of deviled eggs!
- 2 hard-boiled eggs (cooked using the egg method)
- 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise (f)
- 1 tablespoon of mustard (yellow or dijon) (f)
- Pepper (f)
- Salt (f)
- Paprika (we actually couldn't find paprika at our store, but if you can it adds a great flavor)
- Cut your eggs in half lengthwise and remove yolks
- Combine yolks, mayo, and mustard in bowl. Mix together until they have a smooth, paste-like consistency
- To put the yolk mixture back into the whites, we cut a hole in the corner of a ziploc bag (to create a pastry bag) and piped it evenly into each egg white. If you do not want to go through this trouble, you can just scoop the mixture in with a spoon.
- Sprinkle with pepper, salt, and paprika
