Basic Deviled Egg Recipe

Sweet and Spicy Deviled Eggs

Who needs a fussy deviled egg recipe when there's a mountain of hard-boiled eggs to get through? Devouring the eggs can be as simple as deviling them with this four ingredient recipe. The version calls for honey Dijon mustard, which gives the egg filling a sweet touch and cayenne pepper for an unexpected, spicy kick.

Notes

This recipe can be easily multiplied for sit-down meals. Calculate one egg, or two deviled egg halves, for each person. A potato masher works better than a fork for large quantities.

For a mild and not spicy version, use paprika instead of cayenne.

Recipe For Basic Deviled Egg

Ingredients

3 eggs, hard-boiled
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey Dijon mustard
Salt, to taste
Cayenne (or paprika), to taste

Directions

  1. Remove shells from hard-boiled eggs and discard. Cut eggs in half length-wise. Carefully scoop out yolks and place them in a small bowl. Use a fork to mash yolks until they are completely and evenly crumbled. Alternate between mashing in mayonnaise and honey Dijon, one teaspoon each at a time, until a smooth, fluffy paste forms. Salt to taste.
  2. Place egg white halves on a serving dish. Fill yolk holes with a little less than a tablespoon of egg yolk mixture. Sprinkle with cayenne and serve immediately.

You should try this trick my mom uses when making these eggs...instead of cutting them in half w/ a knife, she uses a piece of fine string. She hold one end between her teeth and holds the other end w/ her L hand. She uses the right hand to slice the eggs with the string. Takes a bit of practice to get your hands positioned correctly, but the outcome is worth it...perfectly halved egg whites!

Oh and unless you want to end up with un-even eggs like I did, do not use fresh eggs! Use old eggs because they are <a href="http://www.yumsugar.com/Why-Fresh-Eggs-Difficult-Peel-When-Hard-Boiled-7429332">easier to peel</a>.
