Best Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs are probably one of the best foods on the planet. You can have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or simply enjoy as a snack whenever desired. Also, you can make this dish with leftover eggs, it will taste just as delicious. This dish is filled with egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, and sweet pickle relish.

To make them perfect, you have to start with hard-boiled eggs. Now, if you have trouble peeling hard-boiled eggs, there is a simple trick to it. After cooking them, place them in cold water for about 5 minutes. Then, try peeling them. The peels almost always come off much easier and effortless.

What are Deviled Eggs?

This is a classic dish that is also known as stuffed, Russian, or dressed eggs. They are hard-boiled, shelled, cut in half, and filled with a paste. The cooked yolks are then mixed with creamy flavorful ingredients like mayonnaise and mustard.

This dish is usually served cold and is one of the best appetizers to serve for holidays. Also, they make a very good lunch, sort of like an egg salad sandwich without being quite so messy.

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 easily.

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.

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.
