Easter Egg Overload? Time for some Deviled Eggs!
Lots of leftover Easter eggs? Deviled eggs are always a crowd pleaser…or so I have heard. I wrongly assumed I wouldn’t like deviled eggs because I didn’t care for the hard-boiled yolk. But Tim loves deviled eggs so I decided to give them a try. YUM! I’ve been missing out.
I followed Emeril’s recipe (below), using my new favorite hot sauce Frank’s. There is a nice little kick from the mustard and hot sauce!
In case you are wondering how to make the perfect hard-boiled egg, here is a good recipe to follow. But the perfectly cooked hard-boiled egg is stickier and harder to peel. Not he ideal solution for decorating Easter eggs, but here is a tip for easier peeling so your deviled eggs look as good as they taste. Slightly crack the egg before you put the cooked egg in an ice bath.
Now all I need is one of those cute deviled egg trays!
