Deviled eggs have been around forever. These were a hit in the 70s when you could not have a party without them!
Well if you try these you will understand why. Because these eggs are still delicious, really easy to make and everybody loves them. So are you ready to learn how you can make these deviled eggs? Let’s get started!
Just like the egg salad that my mom would serve on a birthday party, deviled eggs were always part of the party.
In the Netherlands, we call them filled eggs but the concept is the same. These eggs would be gone in no time flat.
Whether there would be 10 eggs or 20 eggs they would always be gone. The most important part of this recipe is to have fresh eggs but not today eggs.
Very fresh eggs are very difficult to peel when boiled. After boiling the eggs put them into ice-cold water straight away.
This will help to get the skin off easier. But with ultra-fresh eggs, it is very difficult to peel the skin.
The boiling of the eggs will take up most of the time. The filling is super easy to make and you will get the best deviled eggs you ever tried.
Deviled eggs ingredients
To make this egg recipe you need just 6 ingredients to put them on the table. Put the following ingredients on your grocery list:
- Paprika powder
- Pickle or shrimp to decorate
How to make easy deviled eggs
Start with boiling the eggs. Bring water to the boil and then back to a simmer before you add the eggs to the water.
Boil the eggs for 7-8 minutes until the egg yolks are hard. Drain the eggs and put them in cold water so the eggshell will come off easily.
Peel the eggs and half the eggs. Get the yolks out of the eggs and put the yolks in a bowl.
Add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt (optional) and paprika powder. Stir until you get a creamy mass.
If the egg mixture is not creamy add more mayonnaise. Put the egg mixture in a piping bag and fill the halved eggs.
Decorate the eggs with:
- A pinch of paprika powder
- A halved slice of pickle
- Crispy pancetta
- North sea shrimp
- Sun-dried tomatoes
Store deviled eggs
Put the deviled eggs in the refrigerator until ready to serve. You can put them in a plastic container or in a deep plate that you cover with cling film.
If you put them in the fridge uncovered the egg filling will dry out which you want to prevent.
Another way to store deviled eggs is to store the filling in a piping bag and the halved egg whites in the fridge.
Fill the eggs when you are ready to serve.
If you are wondering if you can make deviled eggs ahead of time? The answer yes you can. You can keep them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
But I would make them just 1 day ahead tops.
