I asked my mom if I could be the one to share the Deviled Eggs recipe with you to help you get ready for your Easter dinner and she said yes. Growing up, every time we had a family gathering that included a meal, my aunt Karen brought the deviled eggs. It sort of became mandatory for her to do so because everyone wanted them. They were (and are!) always so delicious, and you'd want to make sure you got to them first before they ran out. So, thanks to my aunt Karen I've grown up loving deviled eggs, and I really wanted to share this recipe with you.
HOW TO HARD BOIL AN EGG
First things first, you really need to know how to hard boil eggs. If you do it right they'll be easy to peel. Did you know that fresher eggs are harder to peel? As eggs get older the egg white shrinks. Well, since you don't want to use old eggs, here is how to hard boil them.
1. Place the eggs in water with baking soda.
2. Put on the stove on high heat and bring to a boil.
3. Boil the eggs for one minute (use a timer).
4. Cover the eggs, turn the heat off and let the eggs sit covered on the hot burner for another 10 minutes. (Time it again.)
5. After ten minutes put the eggs in ice cold water and leave for five minutes.
If you follow those steps your shells will peel beautifully and easily and you'll have lovely deviled eggs.
Now normally I'd probably use a hand blender to mix all the ingredients together because it gets them really smooth. However, this time around my little helper had worn herself out making deviled eggs, so I just had to use a fork. Either method works just fine. I also used a ziplock bag and a piping tip to fill the eggs to give them that pretty design. You can use a piping bag and tip, or just scoop with a spoon.
Finally, my aunt Karen puts bacon bits in her deviled eggs. I didn't have any bacon bits when I made this batch, but I still included them in the recipe because... bacon bits are good.
