Every Easter, we always make more hard-boiled eggs then we actually needed. This is the perfect time to make deviled eggs. My dad loved to eat these, and my son is partial to them too. They are quick and easy to make. Better yet, they are a nutritious and satisfying snack.
Deviled egg are always a treat. Here is a way to make them a little different and a tad spicy. For a quick, delicious snack that is not only good to eat, but also nutritious, try some today.
Makes 6 eggs.
- Put eggs in large saucepan and cover with cold water.
- Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Once the water begins to boil, cover and turn off heat. Let sit for 18 minutes.
- Place pan in sink, and run cold water into the pot, to stop the cooking process.
- Cut the eggs lengthwise. Remove the yolk and place the yolks in a small bowl. Once you have this done, mash the yolks with a fork until all lumps are gone.
- In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaiese, mustard, vinegar, salt, pepper. Mix well, then add to the mashed egg yolks. Mix until smooth.
Taste the mix to see if you need to add a little more flavor. I sometimes need to add more vinegar for a little more acidic taste.
Add this mixture to the egg yolks and mix thoroughly. Using a small teaspoon, put the filling mixture into the empty cavity. Sprinkle with paprika.
For a more elegant look, you can put the yolk mixture into a piping bag and use that to refill the egg cavity. You can also add a small sprig of parsley for garnish and color.
It has been found that eggs are good for you. Full of protein. Try to get free-range eggs. We are lucky enough to get eggs from the Mennonite community. They don't put antibiotics and hormones into their chickens. And the chickens have God's green earth to roam in, not a cage in a metal house. Yes, they may cost a little more, but I feel it is worth it.
