I love deviled eggs, and there’s nothing more perfect for Easter.  They’re light but filling, and taste soooo good.

Here’s a classic recipe for deviled eggs.  Personally, I like using spicy brown mustard and regular mayo over the light type.  But that’s just me.  I think they taste better that way.  You can substitute these things if you like a richer taste or prefer your eggs a bit spicier.

Easy Classic Deviled Eggs

This recipe is based on the classic formulation for deviled eggs. Just a nice, quick recipe that is easy to make and tastes great.

This recipe is not spicy at all and as such is a good choice for family get-togethers where there are children and you’re catering to a wide variety of tastes.

 The filling of this recipe is on the firm side. Add a tad more mayo if you would like it a bit softer.

Ingredients:

6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise:

To boil eggs (I always have to look this up):  Cover 6 eggs in a saucepan and bring water to a full boil.   Turn off heat.  Cover pan; let eggs sit for about 12 minutes — they will continue to cook in the hot water.   Drain off the water then rinse with cold water (this makes the eggs easier to peel).   Slice eggs length-wise.

¼ cup Light Mayonnaise or Salad Dressing (I use regular mayo)
½ teaspoon dry ground mustard  (I use the spicy brown jarred type or even a little stone ground!)
½ teaspoon white vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
Paprika for garnish

How to Prepare:

Pop out (remove) the egg yolks to a small bowl and mash with a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard powder, vinegar, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Fill the empty egg white shells with the mixture and sprinkle lightly with paprika.

Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to one day before serving.  (I never wait that long — I let them chill a little in the fridge, and then eat!)

    Yum!

    Drat it – out of eggs. Will need to wait until later in the week to get more – and then it is time to bedevil a batch!

    Well, I hope you feel better soon. Perhaps some, uh, rice? The converted type is easy to fix: rice, 3× its volume of water, some ‘sweetener’, vanilla, 20 minutes in the microwave, enjoy. (?) Helps a lot when you’re suffering from ‘saturated fat flu’. (At least it helps me. Chronic pancreatitis is a ***bugger*** that way…)
