Deviled Eggs

Sunday, March 13, 2016

I just love Deviled Eggs. I really make them all year long, however it's a must to repurpose Easter colored eggs that are leftover. We usually have leftover hard boiled eggs from Easter bread to use up also. Here is an easy Deviled egg recipe that literally fly off the plate when I make them. Everyone loves them.

I seriously love the addicting filling of hard boiled deviled eggs. The creamy filling with just a little spice makes all the difference in flavor. Mom made these after Easter every year. The family loved them so much, we started making them for an appetizer almost every Sunday since we ran out of them every time we made them. There is really nothing to the recipe. All you need is a few ingredients. Sometimes the keeping it simple is the best recipes. This one has been around for over 100 years and here we are still making it.


I love to repurposed Easter hard boiled eggs. They are also so pretty with the coloring in them from the leftover dyed eggs. You may have read my natural dyed Easter eggs post in the past.

They're not only prettier but healthier since the dye is all natural. After Easter we always have leftover dyed Easter eggs and the kids love to help make these. They are so easy.

One tip I use now is I put the zip lock bag over a glass, fill it with the filling and pipe the filling inside the halved eggs. So simple, no mess!

Tip:



Add a plastic zip lock bag lining a coffee cup first, then spoon in the deviled egg mixture. Snip the end and fill your eggs with no mess!

I love making the crackle eggs during the Easter Holiday. You can find the recipe HERE. These are so pretty when made into deviled eggs. The festive tray is loved by all my guests and they always want to know how to make them with all natural dyes.

Deviled Egg Recipe

6 hard boiled eggs
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
paprika
1 quart size zip lock bag

Boil eggs, cool. Peel off the shell.  Cut each in half. Scoop out yolk into a small bowl. Place empty whites of the egg halves on a plate.  In the small bowl with yolks, add mayonnaise, mustard, spice and mix together until well blended with no lumps.  Open the zip lock bag and place this mixture in the bag. Snip the end 1/2 inch. Pipe into the egg white shells to make a swirl effect. Sprinkle with paprika. Serve immediately with sprinkles of parsley or refrigerate covered until ready to serve. Enjoy!!

  2. These look fantastic. At my parents house each Easter there was a contest to see who could eat the most eggs, deviled and/or colored. The winner got to brag until next Easter that they were the champ. Maybe with the cayenne in these eggs somebody besides my dad would have won.

  5. Made extra hard boiled eggs just for deviled eggs :) Love the use of the baggie piping bag, one of my tried & true tricks (and a heck of a lot cheaper than a piping bag!)

  9. I have been so "out of touch" with my blog for the last two days...other than just uploading my new post. I love deviled eggs, and the recipe which is almost identical to mine, I did not bother to make deviled eggs this year. I did make plain hard boiled eggs, which I cut in half and served on a platter with other veggies...now, I feel guilty for not making the deviled eggs, after seeing your yummy eggs!
    I hope your Easter was a happy one, with lots of good food, and loving family!
    Hugs,

  11. Adding the different spices as well as the spicy mustard does amp up the flavor of deviled eggs. My mom always put sweet pickle vinegar in hers, but I do like the more savory route you went with these. Now I am ready to taste some of these spicy gems-yum!

  12. Spicy mustard and a whole lot of spices do seem to add a lovely flavor to these eggs. This would be just the perfect way to use up any leftovers. :)
