Deviled Eggs Recipe
- 6 Hard Boiled Eggs – Peeled
- 3 1/2 Tbs. mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1/4 tsp salt – or to taste
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper – or to taste
- 1-2 Tbs. sweet relish or sweet pickle juice (optional)
- Paprika -for dusting – (optional)
- Slice eggs lengthwise. Into a bowl, pop out the yolk. See video.
- Using the tines of a fork, mash the yolks until very fine.
- Combine the salt, pepper and dry mustard. Add to the mayonnaise and mix well. If using the pickle juice, add it to the mayonnaise mixture.
- Add the mayonnaise mixture to the mashed yolks and mix well.
- If desired, stir in the relish and mix well.
- Using either a spoon, fill each egg with the yolk mixture. Pile it up slightly, but not too much or you’ll run out. With a fork, fluff the yolk into peeks or swirls. Sprinkle with paprika if desired. As another option, you can put the yolk mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe it into the eggs. This makes a pretty presentation. When I’ve had large patches of deviled eggs to make, I sometimes mash the yolks and combine the yolks with the mayonnaise mixture in food processor or in a bowl and blend with a hand mixer. It makes them very creamy and is faster than doing a large batch with a fork. Be careful not to over mix though or then can become a bit greasy. You would still just stir in the relish, but if you were using the pickle juice you would add that with the mayonnaise.
- Note: If you taste the yolk mixture and it seems too salty or sweet, do keep in mind that it must also flavor the egg white, which has basically no flavor or seasoning, so what seems like too much may be just right. I would test one out to be sure and you can always adjust the seasonings to your taste. Enjoy!!!
