Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs make me think of Easter brunch but they make a great appetizer at any party or picnic.  And they are the perfect dish for using up your Easter eggs.

The following recipe comes from my sister-in-law.  It is a basic recipe and you can easily modify the seasonings.  I have experimented with regular mayonnaise and light mayonnaise and I couldn’t tell a difference (but some people swear by using the real deal, full-fat mayo on this one). 


2 eggs, hard-boiled

1 Tbsp mayonnaise (I use light mayo)

1/8 tsp yellow deli mustard, to taste

1/2 tsp pickle juice

Salt, to taste

Black pepper, to taste


Place the eggs in a pan and cover with cold water.  Add 2 Tbsp vinegar or 1 tsp salt to the eggs to help prevent them from cracking while cooking.  Bring the eggs to a boil and let them boil for one minute.  Remove the pan from the heat and cover it.  Let the eggs simmer for 12 minutes.

Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half and scoop out the yolks.  Add the mayo, mustard, pickle juice, salt and pepper to the yolks.  Mash them until a thick, smooth paste forms.  Season the mixture to taste.  Spoon the mashed yolks into the hard-boiled egg white halves.  For a fancier presentation, put the yolk mixture in a piping bag (or a plastic bag with a corner cut off) and pipe it into the egg white halves.

Sprinkle the deviled eggs with paprika.

    We made these with our hard-boiled Easter eggs and loved them! I’ve never had a really good recipe to follow and this one is definitely a keeper! The pickle juice adds a flavor complexity beyond compare! I also used light mayo and nobody even noticed. 🙂
