Tips for making deviled eggs

With all the great egg coupons and  sales in the past few weeks,  I realized today I had plenty of eggs for a special treat.  We LOVE deviled eggs in our family, but I dont make them often.  I need to start making them more often especially because the tips I am going to share with you helps to make the process of making them quick and easy. 

Tip #1    To make the perfect hard boiled egg,  place the eggs in COLD water in a single layer.  Make sure there is enough water to cover each egg by an inch or two.   Bring the water to a boil and then turn off the burner.  I have heard to cover the pot at this time, but I don't always do it.  Let them cool.

Tip #2 Use older eggs, not fresh eggs for much easier peeling

Tip #3  To get the egg yolk to a fine consistency,  use a potato masher instead of a fork.
Tip #4   An easy and neat way to fill the eggs is to use the baggie method.   I love using this method when making cupcakes as week.    Fill a baggie with the deviled egg mixture and cut the tip of one corner.
Gentily squeeze the mixture into the egg white
The baggie method makes it much easier for helpers in the kitchen to help without the giant mess.

Eat and enjoy your eggs!
