"Holiday's and Deviled Eggs!"
Can you think of any Holiday that you wouldn't find deviled eggs sitting on the table? This dish is a really popular horsd'oeuvre and loved by all. No wonder the deviled egg has it's own day named after it. November 2nd is National Deviled Egg Day! So in honor of that we're going to share a few recipes with you and tell you some creative ways that people like to decorate the "Deviled Egg".
You can find deviled egg recipes (also called stuffed eggs) all over the place but most have the same basic ingredients of ....... well...... hard boiled eggs, salt and pepper.
The Classic Deviled Egg
6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise
1/4 cup Mayonnaise or Salad Dressing
1/2 teaspoon dry ground mustard or regular mustard
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Paprika for garnish
Slice hard boiled eggs in half. Remove the egg yolks to a small bowl and mash with a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Fill the empty egg white shells with the mixture and sprinkle lightly with paprika.
Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refridgerate for up to one day before serving.
Deviled Eggs For Easter: For Easter the kids like to eat deviled eggs that are dyed pastel colors and then stuffed. Very Pretty and a nice change from the classic stuffed egg.
You can even make your egg look like a chick. Use an olive for the head, sliced thin carrots for the wings and a triangle cut slice of cucumber for the tail.
