When it comes to classic appetizers, deviled eggs are a true crowd-pleaser. These delightful little bites are a staple at potlucks, picnics, and holiday gatherings, and for a good reason. With their creamy, tangy filling and a dash of spices, deviled eggs are simply irresistible. If you’re looking for a tried-and-true recipe that’s both easy to make and delicious, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we’ll walk you through the steps to create the perfect classic deviled eggs.

Ingredients You’ll Need for Classic Deviled Egg

  • 12 eggs
  • ½ cup of mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Let’s Get Started on Classic Deviled Eggs

Step 1: Boil the Eggs

  1. Begin by placing 12 eggs in a pot of water, making sure the water covers them completely.
  2. Bring the water to a fast boil over medium-high heat and let it simmer for 5-6 minutes. This will ensure your eggs are perfectly hard-boiled.
  3. Once the eggs are ready, pour out the hot water and immediately fill the pot with cold water. This will make peeling the eggs easier.

Step 2: Prepare the Filling

  1. Carefully crack, peel, and cut each egg lengthwise in half.
  2. With a spoon, gently scoop out the yolks from the egg halves into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and 1 tbsp of mustard to the yolks. These ingredients are the secret to the creamy and tangy filling that makes deviled eggs so delicious.

Step 3: Mix and Fill

  1. Use an electric mixer to blend the yolks, mayonnaise, and mustard together until you achieve an icing-like consistency. This step is crucial for ensuring the filling is smooth and well-combined.
  2. To easily fill the egg whites, scoop all of the yolk mixture into a Ziploc baggie. Squeeze out any excess air and seal the bag.
  3. Snip a very small triangle off the corner of the bottom of the bag. This makeshift pastry bag allows you to neatly pipe the yolk mixture into your egg white halves.

Step 4: Season and Serve

  1. With the yolk mixture piped into the egg whites, your deviled eggs are almost ready to enjoy.
  2. Before serving, sprinkle them with salt and pepper to taste. The salt and pepper add a final touch of flavor and a bit of texture to your deviled eggs.

And there you have it, classic deviled eggs that are sure to be a hit at your next gathering. These timeless appetizers are not only delicious but also fun to make. Whether you’re hosting a party, attending a potluck, or simply craving a nostalgic snack, deviled eggs are the way to go. So, whip up a batch and watch them disappear from the plate in no time!
