Cajun-style Deviled Eggs

What you’re about to witness/be a part of is a twist on the classic deviled egg.  I know that we’ve all seen them at picnics and potlucks, but many of us have justifiably steered clear of them.  Not anymore!  Once you introduce your family and friends to these babies you can bet they’ll not only be the hit of the party, but people will look forward to them with anticipation at future gatherings!

Step 1: The Materials

Picture of The Materials

**Before you start please give careful consideration to the fact that you'll be using a couple of sharp/pointed objects and you'll be handling boiling water.  It's best to accomplish these simple steps without the presence of small children in the kitchen.   

6 eggs (any amount will work, but you’ll have to adjust the measurements of the other ingredients to suit your taste)

2 tbsps. Mayonnaise

½ tsp. Hot sauce

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

¼ tsp. ground black pepper

A sprinkle Creole seasoning

1 plastic sandwich bag

A knife

A spoon

A fork

Kitchen shears or scissors

A mixing bowl

A 2-qt sauce pan

Step 2: Boil the eggs

Use a pot of your choice (size-wise) making sure that there is enough water to fully submerge the eggs.   When water begins to boil, set a timer for 15 minutes

Step 3: Rinse/peel eggs

You can either let the eggs cool naturally in the pot that you boiled them in or if you’re in a hurry you can run the eggs under cool water in the sink.  When you're satisfied that they're cool enough you can proceed with peeling the eggs.

Step 4: Cut the eggs in half (lengthwise)

Remove the yolks and place them in the mixing bowl.  If you’re concerned about appearances, you can rinse the halved egg whites under water to remove any unsightly pieces of yolk.  I have found that having one more yolk than the number of egg whites helps ensure that there will be enough filling to go around.  You can always up your protein intake and eat the extra egg white!
