Every family Easter gathering requires a plethora of hard boiled, dyed eggs. It is important to have a great deviled egg recipe if you don’t have one already. Many families have their own recipes and eggs with other seasonings may just taste wrong to these people. It is that way in my family, but I love eggs and variations are just fine with me.
So let me start you out with a basic recipe.
- Start out with a dozen hard boiled eggs.
- Shell and halve them.
- Remove all of the yolks and place in a large bowl.
- Now add enough mayonnaise to the yolk to make it thick and creamy.
- Add sweet pickle relish and mustard until it tastes right to your liking.
- When you’re done, spoon the yolk mixture into the eggs and sprinkle the eggs with paprika.
This is the most basic method for making eggs. If you’d like to experiment with other flavors, it’s usually better to leave out the pickle relish. Some things that can really spice up your deviled egg’s flavor include olives, capers, spinach, diced tomatoes, bacon, horseradish, dill pickles and ham.
And of course, you can always experiment with your own flavors. Deviled eggs are delicious, nutritious and a quick and easy way to help get rid of the dozens of eggs you may have sitting in your fridge after Sunday. Do you have any favorite deviled egg recipes?
