The Best Deviled Egg Recipe

- 1/2 cup of mayo
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of yellow mustard
- Hard boil a dozen eggs. Go here for our tips on the best way to hard boil your eggs.
- After you’ve peeled the eggs, slice them in half. Gently squeeze or massage the egg halves and, if done right, the yolks should pop right out. Place the yolks in a bowl and place the egg whites on a plate to the side.
- Add mayo, salt, pepper and yellow mustard to the bowl of yolks and mash together. Using the back of a fork or small potato masher works very well.
- Place the yolk mixture in a decorators bag (or simply use a plastic sandwich bag and snip off a small piece of one corner) and fill each egg whites.
- Sprinkle the deviled eggs with a bit of paprika to add color and a little bit of kick.
- Refrigerate for up to one day before serving.
That’s it! These are guaranteed to be a hit with children and adults alike.
