At one of our parties in May I decided to make deviled eggs to serve. Now, I serve them all the time in summer but usually I make them just for us. I have to say I was astounded at how popular they were. MEN especially just loved them and gobbled them down. Does no one make deviled eggs any longer? One of our friends couldn't leave them alone and commented how it had been years since he had them. Simple delicious American fare.
There are so many ways to make fancy deviled eggs but my family prefers this basic recipe.
I never measure so the amounts are a guess. Just keep tasting. Mmmm.
Simple Deviled Eggs
Hard boil and cool a dozen eggs. When cooled peel and carefelly halve them scooping the yolks into a bow. Mash all the yolks with a fork. Add about 2 generous tablespoons of mayo (maybe more) and a generous scoop of Dijon mustard. Mix until creamy and smooth. Taste to see if you are happy. Top each with a light sprinkle of paprika.
