Easter eggs … deviled egg style

My family LOVES deviled eggs. I, however, do not like to peel the eggs. It seems I always have trouble and end up with a thumb that is peppered with little cuts from the sharp eggshells. Rarely does this experience go well.

Today, however, we tried something new. My husband searched the internet for directions on how to boil eggs. You would think that after all these years we could get it right but – no, we need help.

We decided to try these directions.

Put water on to boil, with just enough to cover the eggs.

When the water is boiling, place the eggs in the water. Turn down the setting so the eggs boil gently. Boil for 13 minutes. (Next time I will try 15 minutes so the yolks are completely done.)

Then place the eggs in ice water for about fifteen minutes.


Peel. (Most of them peeled very easily. Success!)


Cut in half and remove egg yolk.


Fill with deviled egg mixture. (I use mayonnaise, yellow mustard, chopped red onion, salt and pepper, a splash of milk, all mixed with the smashed egg yolks. Then I add a sprinkle of paprika.)

And here’s the result. And, yes there are many – remember, the family really loves deviled eggs. They will be in egg heaven today.


Thanks for reading. Have a blessed Easter!!
