HOW TO MAKE PERFECT HARD BOILED EGGS for this recipe?

For this recipe, you will need about a dozen hard-boiled eggs.  There are many different methods for hard boiling them. If you are going to cook them on the stove-top, then we recommend boiling them for about 12-15 minutes. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the water. This will help to peel them really easy.

Using a slotted or wooden spoon, gently lower them into the water. Boil them for about 12-15 minutes, then drain the water. After, transfer them quickly into ice-cold water and let them sit in for about 1-3 minutes. The cold water shock will stop the cooking process, and also make them peel very easily.

Can you boil eggs in the Instant Pot?

Absolutely! If you have an Instant Pot, we highly recommend cooking them that way. It’s actually our favorite way of boiling them since they always come out perfect and are extremely easy to peel.

Our recipe is the best classic one you can find. However, you can play with flavor variation by making this recipe sweeter, spicier, more savory, etc. For example, you could add additional ingredients such as bacon, avocado, chives, shallot, cajun spices, jalapeno, goat cheese or Feta cheese.

In addition, herbs can be added to it, such as dill, basil, or parsley. Adding herbs also make them look more festive and appealing.

How to store Deviled Eggs?

If you are short of time, you can boil the eggs up to 2 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Similarly, the filling can be made up to 2 days in advance but should be properly stored. It’s best to store the filling in an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed onto the surface in the refrigerator.

Similarly, if you have leftover, transfer them to an airtight container and make sure it’s covered tightly. Then store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

These do look fabulous. We love deviled eggs, but ours never looks so nice. We stir the stuff and just plop it on top of the eggs, basically. Maybe one day I'll try them like this!
