Deviled Eggs

Posted on | November 9, 2011 | 4 Comments

There are lots of different recipes for deviled eggs.  This is a very basic one to start with.  Basic but nonetheless addictive.  I make these quite frequently because they are simple to make, are quite filling and taste delicious…  To create some variation, you could add a variety of different ingredients.   Sometimes, I add different herbs or bell pepper chunks, spring onions, or celery chunks etc.  There are so many options to experiment with. 


  • 9 hard-boiled eggs, shelled
  • 3-4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp mustard of your choice
  • 2 pickles, finely grated
  • vinegar if desired
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric (optional, but very healthy)
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • paprika, herbs


Cut the eggs in half (lengthwise) and remove the egg yolks.  Put the yolks into a small bowl.  Place the egg halves on a platter. 

Mash the egg yolks with a fork.  Then add the mayonnaise, mustard, grated pickles, and the turmeric.  Combine well into a smooth paste.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Add some vinegar if desired.

Then stuff the egg halves with the yolk mixture.  You can do this with a spoon or you can use some cake decorating bags and squeeze the yolk mixture into the egg halves.

Sprinkle some paprika and/or herbs over the eggs.

Guten Appetit!!!

    Creative presentation! They look like mini flowers or little flowery shrubs, a little greens on the plate and they will look like pretty yellow boquets. This is a nice healthy recipe twist to the usual eggs for breakfast. Thanks for sharing.
