Basic Deviled Eggs

Easter is fast approaching. Maybe life just flies by even faster when you add a happy, energetic and mobile (yikes!) nine month old into the mix, but I feel like this holiday crept up on us this year. If you’re anything like our family, you will have a surplus of brightly colored eggs on Easter morning.You know what that means? Deviled Eggs!

My name is Jessy, and I am a Deviled Egg Enthusiast. In general, I tend to take eggs however I can get them (with the exception of raw or close to it…that’s gross!). When I go somewhere and they have Deviled Eggs, I get abnormally excited and make a point to eat my far share. I want to also take a moment to assert that Deviled Eggs are not just a summer picnic food. That’s right, I stand by the fact that they are delicious all year around.

This particular recipe is very simple. There are no super-special secret ingredients. Just pure, unadulterated, delightfully tangy Devilled Egg Goodness. Maybe next year I’ll hack this recipe and give it a fancy theme like bacon, or avocado or even caramelized onions. But for this year, I’m keeping it simple and easy and I’m praying that I can peel those eggs just right.

Basic Deviled Eggs

Source: Patty Scuteri

Ingredients:

  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. of mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. of yellow mustard
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Paprika for sprinkling over the top (or if you want to kick it up a notch, use creole seasoning)

Hard boil your eggs and allow them to cool.

Carefully peel your eggs. I do this under cool water.

Dry off your eggs and then cut them in half. Reserve all of the yokes in a separate bowl. I carefully wash off my egg whites and put them on a paper towel to drain.

Mix your mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, yellow mustard, sugar and salt and pepper into the bowl with your yolks and mix well with a fork, crushing up the yolks until fully combined. You can change the measurements of ingredients to taste.

Carefully spoon a tsp. of the yolk mixture into the eggs and then sprinkle with Paprika.

    I LOVE EGGS. I thought it was a pregnancy thing but I always have and always will love them. Today I had an avocado egg salad sandwich for lunch. I now really need to make some deviled eggs. Except with mustard, not mayo. Mayo is the worst substance on Earth.

      I have always loved eggs. I don’t mind mayo in moderation. J absolutely hates mustard though. He’s crazy.

    Looks absolutely delicious and I bet they taste just as good, I too can eat eggs all year round but not hard boiled mine in a long time.
