This recipe for Spicy Deviled Eggs is sponsored by MIRACLE WHIP but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
One of our favorite spring-time traditions is hard boiling a few dozen eggs to decorate in pretty colors. My kids love it…and if you could see my multi-colored hands today, you’d know that I love it just as much as the kids do! But what to do with all those hard cooked eggs?
Make a few dozen deviled eggs, of course!
This spring, we made a batch of tangy, spicy deviled eggs that are sure to be a hit with any party, Easter dinner, or Spring-time lunch. These deviled eggs use simple ingredients and are easy to make….and take only 15 minutes (you know how much I love quick and easy recipes, right?). I know you’ll love them!
How to make Spicy Deviled Eggs:
12 hard-cooked eggs
2/3 cup MIRACLE WHIP Dressing
2 teaspoon GREY POUPON Dijon Mustard
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded & finely diced
1. Cut hard boiled eggs lengthwise in half. Remove yolks; place in medium bowl. Mash with fork.
2. Add remaining ingredients; mix well.
3. Spoon into egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika. Garnish with additional jalapeno slices, if desired.
Tips to make the perfect hard cooked eggs:
I’ve always struggled to make hard boiled eggs that peel cleanly and easily and have light yellow yolks. Usually (and I am not too proud to admit this) my eggs peel very messily and the yolk always has some greenish-grey. Making perfect hard cooked eggs has always been a mystery to me.
Luckily, this year, I got a tip from MIRACLE WHIP that transformed my hard cooked eggs to nothing short of little round masterpieces. I followed these tips twice (the second time, I taught my eager son how to make them and he was fascinated). Both times, my eggs turned out just right. I am so excited to have finally learned the secret!
The trick: Place eggs in single layer in saucepan; add enough water to completely cover eggs by at least 1 inch. Bring water to a boil; cover. Remove saucepan from heat; let stand 15 min. Drain eggs; immediately place in bowl of ice water. Let stand until completely cooled, changing water if necessary. Perfectly hard-cooked eggs will have a firm yellow center with no greenish tinge.
How to fill deviled eggs:
If you don’t need your deviled eggs to look pretty, you can use the two-spoon method to fill each egg half. If you’d like your deviled eggs to be display-worthy, then spoon the yolk mixture into a resealable plastic bag. Cut a small corner from the bottom of the bag and pipe the filling into the egg halves.
