Deviled eggs are a classic and delicious appetizer that’s perfect for parties, picnics, or any gathering. Here’s a fantastic recipe to make mouthwatering deviled eggs. But remember to get creative with it. You can add all sorts of toppings to deviled eggs, such as chives, bacon, or even caviar or smoked salmon, if you want to be really fancy.
- 6 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika (plus extra for garnish)
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- Chopped fresh chives or parsley for garnish
- Boil the eggs: Place the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let the eggs simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Prepare an ice bath: While the eggs are cooking, fill a large bowl with ice and cold water. This will be used to cool the eggs quickly and stop them from cooking further.
- Cool and peel the eggs: Once the eggs are done boiling, immediately transfer them to the ice bath and let them sit for about 5 minutes. Gently tap the eggs on a hard surface to crack the shell, then peel them under cool running water. Pat the eggs dry with a paper towel.
- Cut and scoop: Slice each egg in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks and place them in a separate bowl. Arrange the egg whites on a serving platter.
- Make the filling: Mash the egg yolks with a fork until they are crumbly. Add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder to the egg yolks. Mix everything together until smooth and creamy.
- Fill the eggs: Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill each egg white half with the yolk mixture. You can also use a ziplock bag with the corner snipped off if you don’t have a piping bag.
- Garnish: Sprinkle some paprika over the filled deviled eggs for an extra burst of flavor and a pop of color. You can also garnish with chopped fresh chives or parsley for added freshness.
- Serve and enjoy: Arrange the deviled eggs on a platter and serve immediately, or refrigerate them for up to a few hours before serving. They are best enjoyed chilled.
These deviled eggs are sure to be a hit at any gathering, and you can easily double or triple the recipe if you’re feeding a larger crowd. Enjoy!
