This time of year our thoughts turned to boiled eggs colored brightly for Easter. You’ll be seeing (and being requested to bring) deviled eggs to many gatherings to make good use out of all those boiled eggs. Now in the olden days I’d be trying to scoop that deviled egg filling into the halves of the whites and try my best not to make a mess. But make a mess I did.
Every. Stinkin’. Time!
But several years ago I read about an easy shortcut to take the drudgery out of filling those deviled eggs. Oh yeah, check out this easy Homestead Hack.
First I boil my eggs like normal & cut the cooled, peeled boiled eggs in half. I scoop out the yellow yolk centers and plop them all in a zippered bag. Then I add the other ingredients: Salt, pepper, sweet pickle relish (I substituted my delicious homemade pear relish), and a healthy dollop of my homemade mayonnaise. Then I let the air out of the zippered bag and close it up tight.
A little squish & short massage and Boom! Everything’s mixed together to make a delightful deviled egg filling.
Now comes the complicated part. Get your pencils out, students…
Cut a tiny corner off of the zippered bag and ‘pipe’ the filling into the egg halves. Garnish with a little paprika and you’re done.
So quick, so easy and NO MESS, y’all!
