Best Deviled Eggs
For traditionalist the tried and true options of mayo and mustard mixed with egg yolk is always a win, but the cool thing about classic deviled eggs is, it’s a great canvas to expand on tradition. You can add whatever fun twists you want. For example, I use jalapeno in this recipe for deviled eggs, to add a little heat.
My little sister uses bacon jam on hers. Yum!
Bacon, cheddar and ranch pump up the flavor profile, and are just such a fun flavor combo that I particularly enjoy these deviled eggs. And I have a sister who hates mustard, so they are the perfect solution for her as well. No mustard in these easy deviled eggs.
Use Old Eggs to Make Peeling Easier
Other methods for peeling hard boiled eggs
- Add salt to the water you boil in.
- When eggs are done cooking, run them under cold water until they are cold, then slightly crack them and place them in an ice bath for 5-10 minutes.
- Gently roll the cooked egg on a cutting board (or other hard surface) with the palm of your hand makes lots of cracks in the shell, which in theory will help to detach the membrane from the egg white.
- Try putting an egg in a glass, adding a little bit of water, covering the mouth of the cup with his hand, and then shaking vigorously for 20 seconds. The combination of the water and the shaking seems to cause the shell to detach from the membrane in one giant piece. At least that is what the viral video showed! Hahaha
It’s a funny thing to call deviled eggs devilish when they’re such a heavenly tasting dish. Putting on a historian hat for a second a quick timeline of the“deviled” egg is:
- The late 1700’s “deviled” was used for a highly seasoned boiled dish.
- During this era it was common to compare spicy seasonings with the heat from hell.
- By the 1800’s it turned into a term used for spicy condiments.
- In the late 1800’s mayo and mustard entered the scene as a binder for the smashed egg yolk.
- After WWll they became a staple at your potluck picnic.
- Once they became a staple chefs started playing around with the flavors and spices searching for the best deviled egg recipe…like this tasty bacon cheddar ranch version. Amongst all the experimentation the hot and spicy name stuck.
This is a variation on the classic deviled egg. It’s not hot and spicy in the traditional sense of the word. The ranch, bacon, and cheese give it a flavor all of its own, that’s sure to amaze and delight at the summer picnic… if they make it there.
Deviled Eggs Tips:
Use deviled eggs within 3-4 days.
Hard-cooking eggs will remove the natural coating from eggs, making it easier for bacteria to enter through the shell’s pores. Thus, only cook them if you intend to use them within a week. And keep them in the fridge.
Mix up the filling early if you want to plan ahead, but don’t pipe them full until just before serving.
