I realize that deviled eggs are not an earth shattering recipe, folks. I also realize that you probably already know how to make deviled eggs.
You probably already have one of those cute deviled eggs trays too. Maybe I can borrow it from you next time? I just let my eggs slip and slide all over the platter.
My point is…deviled eggs recipe on a food blog! It’s really for my own benefit! One of the reasons that I started this food blog is to have a central place for my recipe collection.
So next time, I won’t have to google “how long to boil eggs”. Yep that happened. I seriously had no clue!! I’ve only scrambled, fried, or soft-boiled eggs.
12 hard boiled eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons Miracle Whip
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
4 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
salt & pepper, to taste
paprika, to sprinkle on top of prepared deviled eggs
Tips: For easier to peel eggs, use eggs that are a few days old. You can also leave the boiled eggs in the refrigerator for a few days to get them easier to peel.
Place eggs in a saucepan. Cover eggs with 1-2 inches of cold water. The cold water to start will help keep the eggs from cracking as they boil. Add a half teaspoon of salt to the water. Place your saucepan on a stovetop burner. Put the burner on high and bring the eggs to a boil. As soon as the water starts to boil, turn off the heat and keep saucepan on burner for a minute.
After a minute, remove the saucepan from the burner. Cover the saucepan with a lid and let the eggs sit for 12-15 minutes. The residual heat from the pan keeps the eggs cooking, but they don’t get overcooked with this method.
Once eggs are cooled, peel the shells off. Slice eggs lengthwise into halves. Remove the yolks with a spoon and place them in a bowl.
Mash yolks into fine pieces with a fork. Add Miracle Whip, yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, and salt & pepper to yolks.
Stir mixture until creamy. Spoon mixture into a pastry bag with tip. Squeeze mixture into egg white halves.
Sprinkle the tops of the eggs with paprika. Place prepared deviled eggs into the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.
Deviled eggs are generally gone in 2.6 seconds at a party.
