Deviled eggs are a classic and traditional favorite in both American and European cultures.

Yield: 24 deviled eggs                              Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 12 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoon of mayonnaise (I used homemade)
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped capers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • paprika for garnish
Directions:
  1. Place eggs in a medium saucepan and add cold water to cover by 3-6 cm (1-2 inch). Gently, bring to a rolling boil. Remove pan from heat and cover. Let stand 13 minutes. 
  2. Drain, and run eggs under cold water to cool them. Let sit in the cool water a few minutes, changing the water if necessary to keep it cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and parsley.
  4. Peel eggs and using a sharp knife, slice each egg in half, lengthwise.
  5. Transfer yolks to bowl with mayonnaise mixture, and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Mash with a fork or food processor until smooth.
  7. Arrange the egg whites on a serving platter and using a piping bag, fill them with the mayonnaise mixture.
  8. Sprinkle with paprika and parsley just before serving.
Tips and Tricks:
  • You can make the deviled eggs up to 2 days ahead. Wrap the peeled egg white halves tightly with a double layer of plastic wrap and place the filling a zipper lock plastic bag, squeezing out all the air. Refrigerate until ready to fill and serve.
  • Do not chose the fresher eggs, due to the fact that they are harder to peel. Instead, use 1-week old eggs.
