Mary's Super Delicious Deviled Eggs & a Joke


This evening we are having a birthday party for my mom, she'll be 76! After the year she's had we are thrilled to celebrate this birthday with her. Along with my three pushy sisters, my three brothers our spouses or insignificant others, nieces, nephews, boyfriends, girlfriends and great grand-son it should be a fun time, provided my pushy sisters behave themselves! LOL!!


We've been asked to provide appetizers, salad and wine and my younger sister will prepare the meal. Someone else has been delegated to bring the cake.

I'll be making deviled eggs, they are a huge family favorite, I'm told that no one makes a deviled egg as good as me . . . personally I think they think it's a lot of work, it's not, and I actually enjoy making them. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!


Mary's Super Delicious Deviled Eggs





Ingredients
12 Eggs
1/4+ cup Hellmanns mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup relish
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon hot sauce (I use Franks)
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Paprika

Directions

1.  Cook and peel the eggs while warm, slice in half and scoop out the yolks.
 
2.  Set the white egg half's on a paper towel to absorb any extra moisture.

3.  Put the yolks in a separate bowl and mash, I use a pastry cutter to mash the yolks.

4.  Add the mayo, mustards, relish, hot sauce, salt and pepper mix.

5. Refrigerate mix for 15 minutes.

6.  Add all the mixture to a plastic bag, cut off the tip and squeeze out and fill the white egg half's, sprinkle with paprika and E-N-J-O-Y!

Joke


Q.   Why was the farmer arrested?  (see answer below)


Keep going, the answer is there . . . 




A.  He was caught beating an egg!  LOL!!

  1. I love deviled eggs and there is as many ways to make them as there is meatloaf. I use basicly the same things except hot sauce. no one likes it except me.
    have fun at the party.

  7. Hahaha! Cute joke! BUT... those eggs look so good that I don't think the nephews, nieces, and in-laws will be laughing if you didn't make more than a couple dozen of theose beauties! Oh, and by the way, high five on specifying 'Hellmans' ... the all-time best mayo ever!

  8. I love deviled eggs and yours look delicious. The addition of a little hot sauce makes them a little spicy. Spicy is right up my alley. Have fun at your mothers birthday party.

  9. Birthday blessings to your mom. That is my deviled egg recipe too. I had to make 12 dozen for a work party. The shell peeling about did me in.

  11. I loved reading this post. It was so free flowing and has that great (if totally corny) punchline. I also adore devilled eggs but have never made them! Your recipe is so simple and I'm digging the plastic bag piping technique. Nice!

  14. My grandma (mum's mother) wasn't a particularly good cook (unlike my mum!), but there was one thing she was really good at: making such eggs! We didn't call them devilled egss, just "filled eggs", and they were a firm favourite every time there was a birthday or other family gathering at her house.
    My mum makes them, too, but because she has such a huge range of other things she can make, the devilled eggs do not feature on our table as often as when grandma was still alive.

  20. I must try serving some eggs like this, they sound delish! I too have 3 sisters however I think it's them who would describe me as the 'pushy' one! I generally organise any family get togethers and then hand out the jobs!!

  23. I could sit and eat deviled eggs one right after another! Yum! I'll be adding some hot sauce next time. I'm a big fan of the Tapatio brand. :-) Sue
