Deviled Eggs do seem to be the first thing that disappears on a holiday brunch buffet. Deviled eggs are also known as stuffed eggs, Russian eggs, or dressed eggs. Just a little bit of dill and paprika adds some spice to the creamy Dijon and yolk filling. Deviled eggs are easy to make and are always a hit at gatherings.
1 dozen large eggs
2 TBSN Dijon mustard
1/3 cup preferred mayonnaise
1 TBSN apple cider vinegar
1 TBSN yellow onion, finely minced
Medium mixing bowl, mixing spoon, measuring spoons, potato masher, measuring cups, sharp paring knife
Prep: 20 minutes prep Cook: 30 minutes Ready: 60 minutes Serves: 12
Before you handle any food, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Clean your kitchen work area and pull back your hair or wear a cap. You want to avoid contaminating your meal with harmful bacteria that could cause food illness.
1. Hard boil your eggs:
Place eggs in a large saucepan.
Cover them with cool water by 1 inch.
Cover pan with a lid and bring water to a rolling boil over high heat.
When the water has reached a boil, reduce heat to medium heat and set the timer for 6 – 7 minutes.
TIP: You can also steam hard boiled eggs by filling a saucepan with an inch of water and insert a steamer basket. Bring the water to a boil and place the eggs in the steamer basket. Cover the pan and let the eggs steam from the boiling water for 17 minutes for 12 large eggs, or 15 minutes for 6 large eggs. Reduce cooking time by a couple minutes if using regular size (not large) eggs.
2. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and submerge them into ice cold water. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
3. Once cooled, gently peel the shells off the eggs.
4. Use a sharp paring knife to cut each egg in half lengthwise. Use a teaspoon to gently remove the yolks and place them in a small mixing bowl.
5. Arrange the emptied egg white halves on a serving platter, and set aside.
6. Use a potato masher to mash the yolks, and add Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, and onion: Add more mayonnaise as necessary to get to the creamy consistency you want.
7. Pipe or spoon mixture into egg white halves.
TIP: Pipe through a piping bag with a star tip, or simply use a ziplock bag with a corner cut open to squeeze the egg yolk mixture into the egg white halves.
8. Sprinkle eggs with paprika and dill.
9. Deviled Eggs can be prepared a day or two ahead of time then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Refrigeration is a must until serving time.
