An Egg-cel-lent Year Awaits !

Happy New Year ! 

To kick things off, my recipe for Deviled Eggs and  ‘cheers’ to an egg-cel-lent, 2018!

Deviled Eggs

Serves:
Total Time Estimate: 30 Minutes 

Ingredients 

6 eggs
¼ cup mayo
1 t red wine vinegar
1 t yellow mustard
add  salt to taste
add black pepper to taste
add paprika (for garnish)

Directions

Read entire set of instructions before beginning …

Place uncooked eggs in medium size sauce pan and cover with water. 

Heat water/eggs to boiling (on medium heat) and time for 5 minutes, once water begins to boil.

Place ice in a medium size glass or metal bowl and fill 1/2 with water, set aside.

Gently, drain hot water from the pan. Begin to crack each egg-shell with a firm smack on the top of the egg with the bottom of a metal spoon. Note: crack the egg while still in the pan to avoid burning your hands. 

Once cracked, place each egg in the bowl of iced water. The eggs will cool quickly, once cooled enough to handle comfortably, peel off the shell and set aside.

Slice each egg length-wise and spoon the yolk from the egg-white into a mixing bowl while placing the empty halves on a serving tray. 

Gather all items from the ingredients list and mix together until very smooth. You may need to use a fork during this part in order to crumble the yolk finely. 

Evenly spoon the mixture into the egg white halves and sprinkle with the paprika, serve and enjoy!

These are a great ‘make-ahead’ type of appetizer and can be stored in a container, in the fridge for the following day.
