Did you know there is a National Deviled Eggs Day? Nope, I didn’t either. But “luckily” Facebook informed me today so I made deviled eggs to help “celebrate”. 😉 I’m sharing the way we make deviled eggs at our house and it might be different from the way you make them. But they are very yummy and I’ve gotten lots of compliments on them.
The main ingredient you will need is, of course, eggs. Hard boil some eggs using your preferred method.
After the eggs are done cooking, get them into cold water to stop the cooking process.
After the eggs have cooled, peel the shell from them.
Rinse each egg to make sure all the shell pieces have been removed.
Using a sharp knife, cut each egg in half lengthwise.
Carefully remove the yellow yolks and put them together in a small bowl.
Smash the yolks with a fork until they are fine pieces.
Now for my secret ingredient! 😉 Add a dollop of Miracle Whip salad dressing. I prefer to use this over other mayonnaise as it has an extra little tang to it. Add a dash of salt too.
Stir together and add enough Miracle Whip so that the mixture is creamy.
Refill the egg whites using the egg yolk mixture.
Add a sprinkle of Paprika on top of the deviled eggs to add a little flavor and make them look nice.
And they are ready to enjoy! Be sure to refrigerate the deviled eggs until you are ready to serve them and also if you have any leftovers. I hope you enjoy our way of making deviled eggs and that you have a Happy National Deviled Eggs Day! 😉
Welcome to another Taste Testing Tuesday! It’s all fun and games…
Until you open the refrigerator and you still see ALL those Easter eggs that haven’t been eaten yet!
What do you do with them?? Let’s try a taste test using your abundance of colored hard-boiled Easter eggs! Here’s a few suggestions you might try. We’re going to assume that you peel them first… 😉
#1.) Cut in half and sprinkled with salt. This is how my husband usually eats a hard-boiled egg.
#2.) Let’s jazz it up a bit by adding 2 chocolate chips for eyes, 2 Cheerios for a nose and bacon pieces for a mouth. Much more appetizing, don’t you think?
#3.) Cut in half with some mayonnaise spread on top and a sprinkle of parsley. (Or salt.) This is how I usually eat hard-boiled eggs.
#4.) Egg salad. There are many recipes for egg salad and every family seems to have their favorite way to fix it.
#5.) Deviled eggs. Again, there are many recipes for deviled eggs! This is probably our favorite way to eat hard-boiled eggs, but they do take a little bit more work.
#6.) Butterfly deviled eggs. Just another fun way to present them! 😉
#7.) Chopped up hard-boiled eggs. Now they are ready to be added to a salad.
A few more suggestions to use the chopped up eggs could be potato salad, chicken salad, tuna salad or macaroni salad. I hope by doing this taste test, your leftover Easter eggs will now only have this left over…
Haha! The colored shells look pretty, don’t they? 😉 What is your favorite way to eat Easter eggs? Good luck using up those eggs! 🙂
