As I stated before deviled-eggs are very similar to making hard-boiled eggs. Well here it is! The easiest and fastest way to make deviled-eggs found here!

Ingredients: Paprika, mayo, yellow mustard, salt and pepper, parsley, hard-boiled eggs.

Utensils: Spoon, bowl, plastic ziploc bag, scissors.

  1. Create the hard-boiled eggs using the steps above.
  2. Remove the cooked yolk from the hard-boiled eggs.
  3. Place the yolks in a bowl with yellow mustard (depends on how many eggs) and mash until creamy.
  4. Place the mashed yolk and mustard mix into the Ziploc bag and squeeze to one side. Twist the empty side of the bag so the air pushes the yolk into the corner of the bag.
  5. Use scissors to snip a small quarter inch hole on the corner of the bag side with the yolk.
  6. Use the air from the bag to fill in the empty hard-boiled eggs with new mashed yolk.
  7. Once finished sprinkle paprika and parsley on top of eggs with yolk and Voila! Deviled Eggs.

*You can also make the yolk and mustard mix with paprika and parsley mixed in.
