Deviled Eggs

My family loves deviled eggs, especially my grandson Landon. He was eating them at my house yesterday and wanted to know all the ingredients that I put in them. He's only six, but I think he'll soon be helping to make these. I'll probably be needing a little helper in the kitchen around Thanksgiving, and deviled eggs will be on the menu.



Deviled Eggs
8 eggs
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
Fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
Paprika

Place eggs in a large saucepan, cover with water. Bring to a boil; cover with a lid, remove from heat, and let stand 15 minutes. Drain immediately and fill the saucepan with cold water and ice to cool them down quickly. The eggs can be refrigerated overnight to make peeling easier, if desired.
Slice eggs in half lengthwise and carefully remove yolks. Place yolks in a medium bowl and add mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mash the yolks with a potato masher and mix the ingredients together. Put the mixture in a pastry bag with a plain round or star decorating tip, or you can just put it in a ziplock bag and cut off one corner. Pipe the filling into the egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes 16 deviled eggs.








These Deviled Eggs can be made ahead and are super easy.

  1. Your eggs looks so delicious. I am literally salivating at the thought. My family loves them. I use Miracle Whip instead of Mayo, so that gives them a tang that your vinegar does. I, also, use a piping bag. It makes filling them so easy and pretty.

  2. Oh yum! My son loves deviled eggs too. I think he could eat them for every meal if I'd let him. I've never added white wine vinegar though. I'll have to try that.
