Deviled Eggs: The Basics
Most deviled eggs follow a simple procedure that even novice cooks can master. Once you have perfected your classic deviled eggs (see recipe below), move on to variations using your favorite condiments, herbs and spices.
- The first step is to hard-boil all of the eggs you plan to use. Since you will be halving the eggs and filling them, make sure you count each egg as two servings.
- Allow the eggs to cool before peeling. Once peeled, slice in half and remove the yolks gently.
- This is where you can get creative. Mash the yolks with a fork and mix in your favorite ingredients. Mayo, salt, pepper, and relish are the classics, but you can branch out and try salsa, olive oil or anything else that strikes your fancy.
- Fill the scooped out eggs with your filling and sprinkle with paprika or top with caviar. To get a professional look, use a pastry bag to fill the eggs.
