Classic Deviled Eggs

Classic Deviled Eggs

Happy Easter everybody!

I hope you all have a wonderful day with your families and friends on this beautiful day.  If you don’t observe Easter, I still hope you have a beautiful day – Sundays are days to rejoice for life in general.

Classic Deviled Eggs

If you do observe Easter, then there is a good chance that you have a few (or many) boiled eggs lying around your home.  Hopefully, if you’ve hidden eggs for any young kids, you were able to find them all.

I think my parents secretly wrote down where all the eggs were – I imagine that there are households that begin to smell like sulfur a few weeks after Easter thanks to forgotten eggs.  Hehehe oh well, right?  All for the sake of the Easter bunny and the Lord.

 

If you are looking for a recipe to help you use up some of those boiled eggs, I suggest you try this recipe.  There are some amazing deviled egg recipes out there, but I have always been a big fan of plain ‘ole classic deviled eggs.

I have the hardest time eating only 1 or 2 – even though my sometimes cholesterol problems mean I should not have any.  Psha is what I say to cholesterol when deviled eggs are around.  Sorry Dr. Z. if you’re reading this.  I love my heart but my stomach loves deviled eggs more.

Classic Deviled Eggs

When I fill my deviled eggs, occasionally I use a piping bag and cake decorating tips like I’m icing a cupcake.  But… sometimes I don’t want to pull out the cake decorating box and I do the lazy route, like today.

Take an empty plastic baggie, fill the bag with the yolk mixture using a spatula, and cut the tip off of the bag.  Its your quick deviled egg filling fix.

I love boiled eggs because they're a good source of protein and are easy to make, but I have never tried making deviled eggs before! These definitely take eggs to the next level! Definitely going to give these a try!
