Who knew? Who knew I could actually make delicious Deviled Eggs? I sure didn’t. I have been trying for years to make perfect Deviled Eggs and over and over again I failed. I kept trying because I love eating Deviled Eggs. Whenever I attend a party I seek out the Deviled Eggs first. Of course on a few occasions I discovered my host or hostess could not make good Deviled Eggs either.
Finally, I figured out that instead of trying to add a bunch of special seasonings or unique ingredients I needed to keep it simple. In most cases, it is best to stick to a basic recipe then gradually build on your success (that philosophy could be applied to life in general). Now, my Deviled Eggs are definitely lip smacking good. Sticking to a simple recipe made it easy to adjust my recipe after my initial success. My stepped up version of Deviled Eggs adds a little bit of bacon. Remember, bacon makes everything better or a least it can’t hurt. I am sure my fellow carnivores would agree. My vegetarian friends will still find the basic recipe to be delicious. Try topping with minced red onion or a little cilantro. Whatever you decide to do I am sure you will enjoy these Deviled Eggs.
6 – 12 large eggs
1 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1 tsp relish
¼ tsp mustard
¼ tsp chopped parsley
minced red onion
3 slices crispy bacon crumbled
Place eggs in a medium sized pot with enough water to cover the eggs. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of salt. Bring eggs to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Turn off heat and let eggs sit for 5 minutes. Remove from stove and run under cool water for 60 seconds or let eggs cool for 10 – 15 minutes.
Peel eggs and then slice in half. Gently squeeze yolk from the eggs into a bowl. Add seasonings, mayonnaise and mustard. Mash the yolks with a fork and mix the ingredients. Spoon mixture into a small plastic bag. Clip one corner of the plastic bag. Squeeze mixture into each egg shell and top with crumbled bacon, minced red onion or cilantro. Chill before serving (unless you cannot wait!).

They look fabulous! Nothing better than good deviled eggs!!! Something else you might want to try is cooking your eggs in the oven. It is surprisingly easy and works perfectly! I posted the instructions at https://insidekelskitchen.wordpress.com/2016/03/30/hard-boiled-eggs-in-the-oven-who-knew-it-could-be-this-easy/. Have a great day!!!
