Happy Friday Everyone! Hope you’re all looking forward to an extended Easter weekend and one that includes good food and family fun. I usually like to make this Best Deviled Eggs Recipe for Easter.
And with the Easter Bunny bringing all those additional eggs this definitely puts them to good use.
I think deviled eggs are pretty much a favorite for most Spring and Summer gatherings. They are usually a crowd pleaser and don’t require a lot of additional ingredients to make them.
I took on the task of making finger foods for my daughters wedding reception and I made this Best Deviled Eggs Recipe.
Needless to say I could have made many more since they were gone way to quickly.
The only thing about making a large quantity of deviled eggs is the time it takes to peel them.
So I would say if you’re making them for a large crowd it would definitely be helpful to have someone assist with the peeling process.
Once they are peeled the rest is fairly easy. Maybe you can find some of those little Easter egg hunters to help you.
I still haven’t quite mastered the perfect peel, although I’ve tried various methods.
Here are some of the tips I’ll share with you for peeling hard boiled eggs….
- Once the eggs are done immediately submerge them in ice water
- Then wait a couple minutes and drain and set on counter
- I like to roll the eggs around the counter top until cracked in numerous spots
- Then go ahead and peel slowly
- Older eggs tend to peel easier so try not to use fresh eggs
- As for filling the eggs you can use a sandwich bag with a whole cut in the end or…
- Just use a melon ball scoop to easily put even amounts in each egg
Hooray for small little discoveries that I’ve made over the years for making deviled eggs.
It doesn’t take much to bring joy to me. It’s all of life’s little finds that have me thinking why didn’t I think of that sooner.
Anyway, hope everyone has a terrific weekend and maybe try this Best Deviled Eggs Recipe for your next get together.
