In fact my husband whose in the military, and I were having a conversation. He tells me that they’re having a pot luck tomorrow and he asked if I could make deviled eggs. 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.
List of Ingredients for Deviled Eggs
As always before we can begin preparing anything we need a list of ingredients.
-Miracle Whip Mayonnaise
-Paprika (It’s a topping, do not add in mixture!)
-Real Bacon Bits (optional; it’s a topping, do not add in mixture!)
-Salt (optional, because you may choose to use bacon) and Pepper
-Sugar (just a pinch, and it’s optional)
-Sweet Pickle Relish
Two Dozen Eggs
Boiling our 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?
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.
After you’ve mixed all your ingredients together, your mixture should be a little stiff.
Add Egg Mixture into Piping Bag
Add mixture to piping bag, if you don’t have a piping bag a teaspoon will be just fine. Fill your eggs whites, with your deviled egg mixture.
Just add a pinch of Paprika and a pinch of Real Bacon Bits( because everything’s better with bacon!)
