up until now i had never made deviled eggs but have always had a minor obsession with them. i didn’t beautifully pipe the yellow filling into their slick white vessels but these look pretty good right? here’s a classic recipe for you.
• 6 eggs
• 1/4 cup mayonnaise
• 1 tsp white vinegar
• 1 tsp yellow mustard
• 1/8 tsp salt
• freshly ground black pepper
• paprika for garnish
1. place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover with water. heat on high until water begins to boil, then cover, turn the heat to low and cook for 1 minute. remove from heat and leave covered for 14 minutes, then rinse under cold water for 1 minute.
2. crack egg shells and carefully peel under cool running water. gently dry with paper towels. slice the eggs in half lengthwise, removing yolks to a medium bowl, and placing the whites on a serving platter. mash the yolks into a fine crumble using a fork. add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper and mix well.
3. evenly disperse heaping teaspoons of the yolk mixture into the egg whites. sprinkle with paprika, serve and enjoy!
