Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe

What is better than a classic deviled egg?  My kids love them so much they come home from school and prepare them quickly for themselves as an afterschool snack.  We all think of deviled eggs for Easter of course – but they are always a hit to bring to any gathering!!

Always a crowd-pleaser. 

Below is a traditional recipe, but I always like to mix a separate batch that is either extra spicy, or with added curry, or even horseradish.

Ingredients Needed

  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp of white vinegar
  • Salt and pepper for taste
  • Paprika for finishing touch/garnish

Step By Step Instructions To Make These Traditional Deviled Eggs

Cooking The Eggs

In a saucepan, place the eggs in a single layer. Cover them with water so there is 2 inches of water above the eggs.  Heat on high until water comes to a boil then cover.

Turn the heat down to low and cook for an additional minute. Remove the pan from the heat and let sit for 15 minutes

After letting them sit, rinse the eggs under cold water continuously for one minute.

Preparing The Eggs

While the eggs are in the running cool water, crack eggshells, and peel them.

Gently dry them with a clean dry kitchen cloth or paper towels.

Next, slice the eggs lengthwise, remove yolks and place the yolks in a bowl.

Place the whites on a fun serving platter.

Adding The Center Flavor

Mash the yolks with a fork and add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, cayenne, salt, and pepper.  Mix this well until creamy.

Disperse even heaping teaspoons of the yolk mixture in the egg whites.  Sprinkle with paprika.
