With Easter approaching..just to let you know that it’s March 31 this year! I know crazy huh!? Among the primary celebration of our Risen Lord…which is truly something to celebrate.. Eggs will make a big showing..as many people decorate for Easter Egg hunts and so forth.
I’m not going into all the theological debates about Easter Eggs..I’m just sayin..Eggs will be on major sale this month and we have to take advantage of this great protein!
As always I’m trying to sneak healthy foods into my kids diet any way possible..and my kids LOVE Deviled Eggs! We actually call them Angel Eggs but really who cares..they are yummy!!
- 1 dozen eggs
- 3/4 cup Mayonnaise
- 1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
- 1/2 Tbsp. Regular Mustard
- 1 – 1/2 tsp. Vinegar
- 1/2 Tbsp. Worsteshire Sauce
- Salt and Pepper to taste
First boil your eggs for about 5 min..I say about because it’s not going to hurt if you boil 4 or 7
Remove pan from burner and run cold water into pan for about 1 minute..this cools down the pan and get the hot water out. Let sit for at least 10 min.
Now peel your eggs..check out HINTS below for easy peeling eggs..
Now cut your eggs in half
Pop the centers into a bowl..gently squeeze egg and center will pop right out No secret tricks to the whole thing..
Set aside Egg White on a separate plate for filling later…
Mash up egg..this is where my handy dandy Pastry Cutter comes in that I rarely ever use for actually making pastry..you can cut up yokes any way that is easiest..you a fork and just cut until the yokes are a fine, fluffy mixture.
Now add all of the rest of the ingredients and stir..
NOTE: if there are ingredients that you do not like..leave them out..this is your food cooked for your enjoyment..not mine
Now fill up the egg whites that you set aside.
You only put about a teaspoon in each at first..because sometimes you can run out…don’t worry..just take some from another egg..no panicking aloud
That’s it! Enjoy!!
HINT: The fresher your eggs are..the harder they are to peel..I know go figure..so if you plan on making Deviled Eggs, maybe buy them and wait a week. If when you are peeling..they become all messed up and not peeling right..just throw that egg into the yoke! (Umm not the shells) Yep..then when you mix it up you will have MORE middle
