OLD FASHIONED DEVILED EGGS

April 18, 2014Holly Sosa
Deviled eggs are one of my ultimate favorite snacks & potluck items. They are simple & easy to dress up or customize to your tastebuds. They have a tangy & semi-sweet flavor to them, & they are so flavorful. My husband prefers a more mustard-y flavor as he is not a fan of mayo, which is actually an old fashioned version of the classic snack. Everyone has their own special take on deviled eggs, but this old fashioned version is our family favorite.
INGREDIENTS
  • hard boiled eggs
  • classic yellow mustard
  • mayo (I used the new olive oil version)
  • black pepper
  • paprikaDIRECTIONS
  • There really are no directions to this. In the old days, they used ingredients, tasted, & then added as necessary. That’s exactly what I did here. I sliced each egg in half & dug out the yolk. Once all the yolks were separated into their own bowl, I added mustard, mayo, & black pepper to my liking. Since my husband prefers a more mustard-y flavor, I added much more mustard than mayo. Once I had my yolk mixture combined really well, I transferred it to a gallon sized Ziploc baggie, snipped off one of the bottom corners, & piped it into each egg half. Lastly, I sprinkled some sweet paprika over each egg.I had some delicately beautiful paper flowers I purchased from my local craft store for a different project, but I knew they’d look lovely plated with these deviled eggs to create a light & airy Spring-on-a-plate look. I’m not gonna lie, I felt like I had channeled my inner Martha Stewart on this one, guys.
