Put a Little Devil in Your Eggs

Deviled Eggs – Always a Hit

This is a revamped post. It needed some life to it!

devilWhen I was a kid one of my favorite things was a big family get together. Everyone made more than one dish and there was always a ton of food to eat! But out of all that food, I had my favorites and one of them was my mama’s deviled eggs. They never lasted long so you had to be quick and get yours before all the grown ups took ‘em all. Now that I’m not a kid anymore, nothings changed for me. They’re still one of my favorites with a family powwow or eating all by my lonesome. And, when it’s holiday time, I don’t even bother asking what I should make and bring to dinner. I know what they’ll say and my kids would be so upset if I didn’t make these things they’d probably send me home without dinner.

Yep, my deviled eggs are some SeriousYum™!  I’m not talking about 1 flavor, I’m claiming all 4 flavors are delicious! I strut in with four different flavors to choose from so there’s something to please everyone. I think that’s what makes me the “Deviled Egg Queen”.

I’ve got an idea, so you’ll see it on here soon. I think it’s going to shake it up a little bit and my family is going to love me even more next time we get together. I can’t wait to try the one I have in mind.

It’s as easy as pie to whip up my four flavored deviled eggs. I’ve got it all laid out for you here and all you have to do is build on each batch. You want to start with the basic recipe and then add stuff as you go to the next flavor level. I’ve listed the prepping instructions first for you, because it doesn’t change for any of the recipes. So make a big batch and divide it into four parts.

Putting the devil in your eggs.

Prep for All Recipes:

  • Boil the eggs in a large pot with enough water to cover the eggs, about 7 minutes at full boil.
  • When eggs are completely cooked, place the eggs in cold water to cool.
  • Once eggs have cooled to the touch, shell the eggs and rinse thoroughly being sure to wash off all shell bits.
  • Cut eggs in half longways.
  • Carefully remove all yolks into a bowl, placing all egg white halves to the side for later.
  • With a potato masher, or fork mash the yolks until a fine texture. (I’ve also used a whisk.)
