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.
