Deviled Eggs

I love eggs, and it's nice to have a way to have eggs differently than the traditional breakfast preparation: fried, scrambled, etc. Deviled eggs are one of those foods that are simple to make yet satisfy my appetite for a while (thanks, protein!).

  • A few eggs
  • Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
  • Sugar
  • Paprika
  • Hard boil the eggs. It's not necessary for the water to boil, but it needs to be hot. Cooking the eggs may take 10 - 15 minutes after the water is brought up to full heat.
  • Cool the eggs by draining the hot water and adding cold water. Top the water with ice. Boiled eggs are best served cold, and I think this helps the insides set up.
  • Slice the eggs in half length-wise.
  • Remove the yolks to a bowl.
  • Mix the above ingredients with the egg yolks. Using a fork to break and mix the yolks is an effective approach.
  • Start with a small amount of Mayo/Miracle Whip and add more if you want it more creamy.
  • A pinch of sugar is usually enough.
  • Refill the egg white halves with your mixture.
  • Shake a small amount of Paprika on each piece.
