How to make deviled eggs quick and easy

Updated on February 9, 2012


The most easiest thing to make is Deviled eggs. It is not very time consuming and can also be useful when attending a pot luck or small barbecue. You first want to start with getting the mustard, mayonnaise, eggs, relish, and paprika. Obviously relish and paprika are optional choices but give it that extra taste.

Step one

The first thing you want to do is get a big enough pot that will fit your eggs. I use about 6 eggs which will make 12 deviled eggs. I place all the eggs at the bottom of the pan and poor hot water to about a little over half way. Turn the stoves burner to medium -hi and allow the eggs to come to a boil. Boil time from moment on stove is 20 minutes. 5-6 minutes to allow the water to actually come to a boil. About 14-15 minutes to allow the eggs to be fully cooked before removing them from the stove. Allow 5 minutes for the eggs to set when removed from the burner. Then move the eggs from the main pot you used to boil them to ice or very called water. Allow ten minutes to cool down before taring the shell off the eggs. I took about 10 minutes to let them cool down then begin to crack the shells off. One trick that I learned that a lot of people seem to have a problem with is not completely mutilating the outer layer of the egg. I gently crack the top and bottom of the egg against a hard surface. Then slowly about three times turn the eggs sideways and gently crack the sides. I then use the palm of my hand to gently place over the egg against a flat surface and roll the eggs to crack the rest of the shell. Remove the shell and dip in and out of the water currently used to remove excess debris.

Step 2

After removing the excess shell from the egg, you're going to take a knife not too sharp of one and cut halfway through the egg horizontally. You may want to be a little cautious of cutting so the outer part of the egg is not damaged.

Step 3

After cutting the egg in half you are going to remove the middle yolk and place in a bowl. Try to take out as much of the yolk as possible. When finished removing the yolk it is now time to move to the next step.

Step 4

Now you want to smash down the yolk in a bowl and get as close to being mashed down as possible. One tactic I found useful was to use the back of a spoon and smash it against the side of the bowls and rotate. When finished you are going to move to the main ingredients mustard, relish, and mayonnaise. I used 2 1/2 teaspoons of Mayonnaise and mustard, and half a tea spoon full of relish. Mix all together and stir for about 1 minute. When finished you then are going to add the mix of the three to the center part of the outer egg you split into half. When completed to add a little bit of taste and color you will sprinkle a little bit of paprika which it will give that nice image and great taste. You are now finished making deviled eggs. Makes a wonderful dish for any occasion.
