Making perfect deviled eggs

To make perfect, incredibly easy to peel hard-boiled eggs, bring a pot of water to a rapid boil. (I have to cover the pot to get my water to boil hard.) Add a dash of salt then gently lower the eggs into the boiling water with a slotted spoon.

Replace the lid and boil hard for 14 minutes. Drain and place immediately in cold water. Ice water is even better.

Lightly crack each egg all over then gently roll it between your hands. The eggs will practically leap out of the shells on their own, leaving the most perfect hard-boiled eggs you’ve ever seen.

Hard-boiled eggs worth writing home about.


Rinse in cold water to make sure you didn’t leave even the tiniest bit of shell on the eggs then allow the eggs to cool thoroughly before slicing. You want to be sure they are chilled all the way to the center. Pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. Eggs slice much more cleanly when they’re cold. Once chilled, slice eggs lengthwise with a smooth-bladed knife.



Squeeze gently to pop out the yolks and you’re ready to make deviled eggs!

Classic deviled egg recipes include the mashed hard-boiled yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and a dash of salt and pepper. Deviled eggs are most frequently sprinkled with paprika for taste, color, and just because it looks pretty. Parsley, chives, and other herbs also make a great garnish.

The classic recipe can be varied easily to suit your tastes or a special occasion. You can replace the mayo with any flavor creamy-style salad dressing, sour cream, or even horseradish. You can add different herbs, or include shredded cheeses or meats, particularly seafood (crabmeat or minced shrimp). Finely diced veggies also make a fun variation on the standard deviled egg. If you like spicy, use finely diced hot peppers with a bit of chili powder and garnish with a sliced olive or cilantro. The possibilities are endless.

The prettiest deviled eggs are made with the filling piped into the egg white halves, but you can also spoon it in.
