Deviled eggs are a staple appetizer at many gatherings, and while they often get a bad rap for being labor intensive, I am here to show you just how easy they are to make at home with my fool-proof hard boiling and filling methods!

How to Hard Boil Eggs

  1. Carefully add eggs to a pot of boiling water. Use tongs to ensure they don’t hit the bottom and break.
  2. Boil the eggs for 6 minutes.
  3. After 6 minutes, turn off the heat, add the lid to the top of the pot and let them sit of another 6 minutes.
  4. Remove the lid from the pot and drain the hot water.
  5. Shock the eggs by adding cold water and ice cubes to the pot. Let the eggs cool in the ice water for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Once cooled, bring the pot over to a cutting board and, working one egg at a time, gently roll the all the way around to crack the shell. The shell will come right off with ease.
  7. Once all of the eggs have been shelled, place them back in the cold water to rinse off any excess shell.

How to Make Deviled Egg Filling

  1. Place the shelled eggs back onto the cutting board and slice them in half long ways.
  2. Add the yolks to a medium-size bowl by gently flexing and pushing the bottom of the egg whites.
  3. Using a fork, mash the egg yolks until they reach a crumb-like consistency.
  4. Add mayonnaise, yellow mustard and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Using a spoon or a whisk, combine the ingredients together until smooth.

Two Methods for Assembling Deviled Eggs

  1. Using two spoons, push the filling right into the cavity of the egg whites.
  2. If you want to be a bit fancier, pipe the filling into the cavity of the egg whites using a piping bag with a large tip. This is my preferred method as I believe it is easier and looks better.

How to Serve Deviled Eggs

  1. Arrange the filled deviled eggs on a serving platter.
  2. Sprinkle with paprika and garnish with chopped chives, if desired.

Super easy to make and incredibly delicious, deviled eggs will be your new go-to dish to serve for any special occasion.
