HOW TO MAKE DEVILED EGGS

Another recipe so simple it doesn’t really need one, BUT to make your deviled eggs experience easier, here we are!

HALVE boiled eggs lengthwise, and scoop out the yolks into a bowl.  Arrange your egg whites onto your serving dish.
MIX the yolks Following the recipe recipe below with mayo, Dijon and seasonings until creamy. It’s ok if there are some lumps of yolk.
FILL the egg whites with the yolk mixture and voila, so easy! Garnish and serve.

THE BEST WAY TO BOIL EGGS

A fool-proof way of boiling eggs is to place your eggs into a pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Turn off heat, cover and leave them in the pot on the stove for a good 12-15 minutes. This ensure you don’t over boil them, creating rubbery textured eggs.

Drain and rinse under cold water, then peel each one. The peel should pretty much slide off at this point. You can also add eggs to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

Place onto a plate, loosely cover and let cool in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. It’s easier to work with cold yolks compared to warm.

TO MAKE-AHEAD

To save time, make them ahead for serving in time for your easter dinner. They can be made up to 2 days ahead, just be sure to fill them with the yolk mixture right before serving.

Another option is to fill them up to 12 hours before you need them and store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container to prevent a crust forming on the top.
