It was hard to resist them and was the first to disappear. Here is our no-frill, timeless deviled egg recipe…

Deviled egg ingredients –

Deviled eggs do not need any fancy ingredients. The hard-boiled eggs pooped out yolk, keeping the white part intact, mixed with herbs, chives, mustard, rice vinegar, mayonnaise, salt, and black pepper would make a creamy filling. This yolk is piped into the egg’s cavity and sprinkled with paprika.

Boiling the egg:

Put the raw eggs in a medium pot; add cold water to cover it. Heat the water to boil for 10 minutes.

After 10-12 minutes, plunge the eggs into another ice-cold water-filled bowl. This step ensures three benefits- it stops further cooking, quickly lowers the temperature, and makes the shell come off clean.

Take the eggs out on your kitchen counter and roll them between your palm and the counter to peel.

Deviled egg filling:

To make deviled eggs, divide hard-boiled eggs into halves; scoop out the yolks in a bowl. Make sure to keep egg white intact. Add the salt, pepper, yellow mustard, rice vinegar, mayo, dill, herbs, and chives to the mashed yolks.
If you find the filling runny, blend mashed potatoes or a couple of teaspoons of baby cereals to make it manageable.

The amount of mayonnaise is responsible for the consistency of the filling. Additionally, some recipes call for adding cream cheese or butter to improve its texture.

Why do people put vinegar in deviled eggs?

Apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar adds tartness to the recipe. It also balances the richness of yolks and mayonnaise.
