What I'm Cooking Wednesday: Deviled Eggs

Okay, so I know I probably should have posted this before Easter, but these are great to make for summer picnics too, so I thought I'd share the recipe anyway:

I'm just going to go step-by-step through the process of making them. This was actually my first time making them, and I found it to be surprisingly easy. Like I said, they are great for Easter or for picnics too!

Serves: up to 12
Total time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
6 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 c mayonaise
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp white vinegar
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Paprika to garnish

Step 1: Hard-boil the eggs. (I make a lot of egg salad sandwiches, so I am pretty much a pro at this! Weird thing to be proud of. haha) I put the eggs in a pot of water so they're just covered, bring it to a boil, put the lid on and turn the heat down to low, then let them simmer for about 10 minutes. I immediately take them out of the hot water, and put them in a bowl of cold water. Works perfectly every time. The shells usually peel off in one or two huge, easy pieces.

Step 2: Peel the shells off of the eggs and cut them length-wise.

Step 3: Make the filling. Scoop out the yokes into a mixing bowl. Add mayonaise, mustard powder, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix ingredients together until smooth. At this point I like to taste-test the filling, and add more mayo if needed. I like a lot of mayo. My hard-boiled eggs and egg salad sandwiches are both pretty unhealthy :-P As are most of the recipes I share.

Step 4: Fill the egg whites with the filling. I piped mine on inside using a large "Star" tip.

Step 5: Sprinkle paprika on top of the eggs.

Step 6: Enjoy! I dare you to try to eat just 1.
I definitely need to buy one of those egg platter things!
