Deviled Eggs are super easy to make and just about everyone loves them. What a terrific appetizer for a holiday or party.
Deviled Eggs are the perfect treat.
November 2 is National Deviled Eggs Day. What are they? Deviled Eggs are fancy hard boiled eggs, made by whipping the yolks with mayonnaise, pickles and garlic powder after the eggs have cooled. Then you fill the centers of the eggs with the whipped yolk mixture, put them on a pretty plate, and wait for the "mmmm."
They are tangy and light, easy to make, delicious and pretty, even if you don't use a chef's pastry bag (affiliate link). Perfect for any holiday or family gathering.
What You Need
You will need an electric mixer or a mini food processor (affiliate link), measuring spoons, and a small mixing bowl to make this recipe. And, of course, a lovely plate for serving. I like to make them for special occasions, and I have a fancy crystal serving dish (affiliate link) made just for Deviled Eggs. The only disadvantage to the beautiful dish is that it doesn't have a lid, so that makes taking it to someone else's house a bit of a trial. I use toothpicks and plastic wrap to avoid messing up the eggs.
But wouldn't this clever Deviled Egg Keeper be useful?
Deviled Eggs Recipe
- 12 eggs
- 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
- 1 teaspoon dill relish drained
- 1 dash garlic powder
- Paprika to garnish
- Hard boil the eggs. To do this, put the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and turn the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 12 minutes. Drain. Cover with cold water and toss some ice into the water.
- When cool, peel the eggs and slice them in half lengthwise.
- Pop the yolks out and put them into a small bowl or your little food processor bowl, setting the whites aside for now.
- Using a small food processor or electric mixer, smash the yolks and add all of the other ingredients except the egg whites and the paprika.
- Mix until smooth.
- Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg white cavities. (Or use a pastry bag to squirt them in in a pretty way.)
- Sprinkle with paprika and arrange on a platter or special deviled eggs serving dish.
- Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.
This is yummy and a little different from the way I usually make mine. I don't have a recipe, but I chop up the yolks of hard-boiled eggs (and throw in the whites that break) add some Hellman's mayonnaise, a little yellow prepared mustard, a dash of hot sauce, a dollop of sweet relish, salt, pepper, and lemon pepper. Then I scoop the filling back into the eggs and sprinkle a little paprika on top if I want to get fancy.
Your version sounds delicious, Elizabeth. Thanks for sharing!
