Deviled Eggs

Update 12/29/16: I have since learned to make Perfect Hard Cooked Eggs that peel easily every time. Click here to check it out! 🙂 No more Disheveled Deviled Eggs! 


Disheveled Deviled Eggs would be the appropriate name for the Deviled Eggs I made for Easter.

Either some of them were too fresh, or I should have listened to Julia who advised peeling them as soon as they finished their ice water bath. I left them in their shells in the refrigerator overnight. Some of them did not peel as beautifully as I’d hoped.

Since I don’t own a pastry decorating bag to beautifully pipe the egg yolks into the egg whites, I just spooned it in.

They were quite good, though, and no one complained about how they looked.

I have never measured the mayonnaise or mustard before. I kind of measured yesterday to give an idea of the quantities.
