Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe

INGREDIENTS 6 eggs ¼ cup mayonnaise 1 tsp white vinegar 1 tsp yellow mustard 1/8 tsp salt Catch Black Pepper powder    

Place eggs in a single layer in a medium-size saucepan and cover with enough water in a way that there are 1 1/2 inches of water above the eggs.

  1. Heat on high until water begins to boil, then cover, turn the heat to low, and cook for 1 minute. This makes whites that are firm but still tender and yolks that are set but still creamy.
  2. Remove from heat and leave covered for 14 minutes, then rinse under normal water continuously for 1 minute.
  3. Crack the egg shells and carefully peel them off. Gently dry with paper towels.
  4. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise, removing yolks and placing them into a medium bowl. Then place the whites on a serving platter.
  5. Then comes the filling part, the main one. Part of the eternal appeal of deviled eggs is their sheer simplicity. Mash the yolks into a fine crumble using a fork. Add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and black pepper powder, and mix well.
  6. Evenly disperse by heaping teaspoons of the yolk mixture into the egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika and serve.
Recipe Notes/Suggestions:
  1. If you have trouble peeling hard boiled eggs, here's a trick: Once cool, crack the eggs and place in cold water for 10 minutes, then try peeling them. The peels almost always come off much easier.
  2. The only other tricky moment with deviled eggs is filling them. You can certainly use a spoon, but it's worth considering using a bag to pipe the filling. It's a lot neater and easier than it might seem.
  3. The eggs can be hard-boiled and peeled up to 1 day in advance and stored in the refrigerator. You can also make the filling up to 1 day ahead, but store in a piping bag or an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed onto the surface in the refrigerator.
