We’ve been having a lot of deviled eggs around here – something that usually happens after Easter! It’s an easy recipe, and a great one for kids to help with because it’s so hard to go wrong!
Deviled Egg Recipe
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonaisse
- 1/2 to 1tbl mustard
- 1/2 tbl apple cider vinegar
- pinch of salt
All measurements are approximate and can vary according to taste! We don’t like a lot of mustard, but many people put much more in!
Slice the eggs in half, remove the yolks and put the yolks into a bowl. Place the egg halves onto a separate plate. Mash the yolks with a fork.
Add the remaining ingredients to the yolks, and mix everything together. Mix until it’s blended. You can play with the ingredients for the consistency and taste you like best.
Mess-free Deviled Eggs Tip
I used to mix the topping in a bowl, and then put it into the egg halves using a spoon – messy, messy, messy! It got on the platter, over the other eggs, dropped on the counter – basically everywhere. Then my mom showed me a tip she’s picked up over the years, using a plastic bag. It’s so much easier – and cleaner!
After you mix the topping, put it all in the corner of a resealable plastic bag. Push the mixture all into one corner, and then cut off the end of the tip. Push the yolk mixture through the hole in the bag and slowly fill each egg half.
If you want to get fancy, you could also add an icing tip to the end of the bag – I just keep it simple!
Fun add-ons: Deviled Eggs is such an easy recipe to play with – you can also add paprika, capers, olives, dill – basically anything that you think tastes good with eggs (so basically, anything)!
