Of course he has to  work at 6am, so I was up at 2:30 in the morning fresh out of the shower boiling eggs. So let’s get started with our ingredients and preparing these delicious deviled eggs.

Boiling our Eggs

How to Boil Eggs

 Once we have our ingredients, all laid out, it’s time to boil our eggs. I boiled about two and a half  dozen eggs, always boil a little extra, because there will always be rebels that won’t peel properly.

After, you’ve finished boiling your eggs it’s important that you allow them to cool for few minutes. Once the eggs have cooled, it will be easier for you to peel off their shell.

Cutting your Peeled Eggs in Half

              As soon as you’ve finished peeling your eggs, they’e ready to be split in two.

You will need  two separate bowls, one for your eggs and the other for your yolk.

Be sure to crumble your egg yolk with a fork.

Why are they called Deviled Eggs?

Ingredients for deviled eggs

They’re referred to as “deviled” because since you’re using mustard, pepper, and paprika,  they’re technically  a zesty or spicy food. After you crumble your egg yolks in a bowl, you need to begin adding in your ingredients  (except for the Paprika and Real Bacon Bits they’re the toppings). 

I have been making deviled eggs for so long. I do not measure anything lol! However, be sure to add your mayonnaise a little at a time in order to get the right consistency.

Mixing ingredients for deviled eggs

After you’ve mixed all your ingredients together, your mixture should be a little stiff.
