  • How to Make Deviled Eggs:

  • Transfer hard-boiled eggs to a bowl of ice water with a slotted spoon and let cool.

  • Drain the ice water. One at a time, crack the bottom, wider end of each egg against the bowl, then hold the egg under cold running water and peel.

  • Slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop the yolks into a bowl and make your filling.

  • Fill the egg-white halves with the yolk mixture using a spoon, piping bag or resealable plastic bag with a corner snipped

Let eggs stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking to eliminate the chill from the refrigerator.

Cook 1 dozen eggs or less at one time for more even cooking.
