Deviled Eggs are a standard for any holiday or dinner party and an easy appetizer that everyone will just devour. Super simple and doesn’t really take too much time. The most time you have into this is boiling and peeling the eggs. This is always a great treat for hosting a lady’s weekend — Deviled Eggs make for some sweet brunch fun!
Basic directions: Boil eggs, peel eggs, slice in half, remove yolk to a bowl, add mayo, yellow mustard, mix and put into a frosting bag. Fill egg halves with yolk mix, sprinkle with paprika. THAT’s IT!
Basic Egg Boil
My hard boiled egg instructions: Put eggs in pan in one layer, fill water to one inch over the eggs. Bring to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let them sit for 10 minutes. Dunk the eggs in an ice bath for an additional 10 minutes to reach the perfect yellow yolk!
I am lucky to have fabulous neighbors with free-range chickens in their backyard. Always a steady supply of fresh eggs! We have a sweet barter system set up with our neighbors. We deliver fresh tomatoes, spinach, and peppers next door and they reciprocate with all these beauties. Works out great as they get pretty overwhelmed with eggs midway thru the summer and I have tons of veggies that we don’t want to waste.
Mix up the Mixture
After you remove the egg shells, cut the eggs in half and remove the yolks to a bowl. To make the perfect display, be super careful while cutting the eggs because you want to make sure that they are in good condition. This will better hold the egg mixture for this Deviled deliciousness.
Gather the mayo, mustard and paprika. We always have these ingredients on hand in the refrigerator so this is another easy pull. I know that mayo isn’t super for my peeps on a diet, but other than the eggs, it’s the main ingredient and it’s a party, so live a little.
Chef Style Construction
I use a frosting bag with tip for perfect application of the mixture into the egg whites. If I don’t do this — the end product looks like a kindergartner put these together. Not that a kid couldn’t do it — mine just look less appetizing. This is actually the fun party of the construction and a proper hostess will dress up their Angelic Deviled Eggs to the fullest!
Sprinkle with paprika, arrange on a perfect serving tray, and you have a beautiful and yummy appetizer all will eat right up! This really is a quick and easy treat to put out for a dinner party. Enjoy!
