I don’t know about y’all, but I am a snacking kinda person when it comes to holidays. I get little bites to eat throughout the day – tasting a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I usually try to sample a little bit of everything for the dinner too. Through all of this, I probably eat only a bite or two of everything because we always have soooo much food!
One of the things that always makes an appearance no matter what holiday it is, is deviled eggs! There are probably a million and one ways to make them … My bloggy friend Joy from Yesterfood has a Chipotle Deviled Egg that I can’t wait to try! They sound like they would be right up my alley – but not knowing whether our guests would eat them, I opted for a simple and basic deviled eggs recipe – it’s one of the oldest recipes I have in my collection, and it’s a real crowd-pleaser!
Yield: 2 dozen
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tsp. yellow mustard
2 tsp. vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste (optional)
Paprika or Dill Weed (optional)
4 cups ice
Put the eggs in a large saucepan. Cover with water – at least an inch over the top of the eggs. Cover the pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once the pot begins to boil, turn the heat off and remove from the heat. Leave the pot covered for 15-20 minutes.
Drain the water. Cover the eggs with ice and fill the pot with cold water to at least an inch over the eggs.
Carefully crack the shells and peel the eggshell off. Set the eggs aside, discard the shells.
Cut the eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks, placing the yolks in a medium bowl. Mash the yolks. Add mayo, mustard and vinegar. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Stuff the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Garnish with paprika or dill weed, if desired.
I hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to share and comment ♥
