Hi! I hope everyone had happy holidays this past week! Can you believe it’ll already be NYE in a few days!?
Does anyone have any fun plans? Please let me live vicariously through you because I think this will be the first time in quite some years where I just don’t think I have the time, money or energy to go out.
Geez, don’t I sound like the party pooper. How old am I now? :-/
I mean, it doesn’t help that the hubby has to work the next day, so that puts a little damper on things. That’s okay though, I feel like a nice night in might be nice for a change. We’re thinking maybe making ourselves a nice 4-course meal with champagne and try to be all fancy at home this year – with these simple deviled eggs included! I just made them for Christmas and they really are so easy to pull together that it’s hard to resist making them again.
People might think, oooh it’s probably pretty hard to mess up deviled eggs, and let me tell you that’s totally wrong.
I remember one time I put in so much mayo that it overpowered all the flavors and they just turned into a total mess that ended up in the trash can. Sad, I know Then, there was the one time I added way too much relish to the point that it just tasted like you were eating pickles. So, it’s definitely possible to make bad deviled eggs.
Now that I’ve finally gotten the right ingredients and right AMOUNT of ingredients, these deviled eggs are always such a hit. The best part is that they are super simple too! Minus the egg boiling part which seems to be the hardest to master these days. Kate swears by this method, which I definitely can say has been the best so far. Have you found a method that works best for you? If so, let us know!
So, back to these simple deviled eggs. Not only are these a super simple appetizer to pull together, but they are also:
- Only 4 ingredients – less is more!
- Gluten-free and vegetarian – allergy and dietary restricted friendly!
- Come together in just 15 minutes – save yourself some time, because we all need extra time these days!
- A total crowd-pleaser – trust me when I say everyone will love these!
And hey, while your at it, don’t forget to whip up some of our classic guac to bring along with these little devils, hehe.
Hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year’s Eve! See you in 2017!
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 1 1/2 tbsp mayo
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp sweet pickle relish
- 1 tsp water
- Salt and pepper
- Optional toppings: dill and paprika
- Peel the hard boiled eggs.
- Cut them in half lengthwise.
- Remove yolks and add them to a small bowl.
- Add mayo, mustard, relish, water, salt and pepper. Mix well.
- Spoon a generous amount of mixture into each egg. (If you want them to look a little fancy, fill a piping bag with your tip of choice with the mixture and fill each egg.)
- Optional: Top with dill and paprika
- I like to hard boil and peel the eggs the day before, so the day of I only have to cut, mix and assemble them.
- If the mixture is still a little too thick, add another tsp of water until mixture is nice and fluffy.
- If you want to kick them up a notch, try adding a small piece of cooked bacon to the top of each egg!
