Introduction: Deviled Eggs

Start your Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any other get together meal with one of the best finger foods around!

This classic appetizer makes everyone happy and is easy to pull off. Instead of the traditional deviled eggs with paprika, these use dill and with a bit of fresh garlic are a delicious way to start the feast.

Step 1: Boil the Eggs

Place 6 eggs in a pot of water and bring it to a boil. Boil the eggs for 15 more minutes.

When they're cooked, drain them and cool them off with cold water.

Step 2: Split and Empty Eggs

Slice the eggs in half and drop the yolks into a mixing bowl.

Step 3: Mash Up the Yolks

With a fork or a pastry blender, crush the yolks into small pieces.

Step 4: Add the Rest of the Ingredients

Add in the rest of the ingredients:

# 1/4 cup mayonnaise
# 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
# 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
# 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
# 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1/2 a clove of grated garlic
# 1/8 teaspoon salt

Stir it all together.

Step 5: Scoop Mixture Into Whites

Using a spoon, get dollops of the mixture from the bowl and place them in the egg whites.

Step 6: Add Dill

With one small sprig of fresh dill, tear off the ends and place on the eggs for a garnish.

Serve and eat!

Is there any other vinegar that could be used? I already have White Vinegar, Cider Vinegar, Rice Vinegar, Red Wine Vinegar and Balsimic so I do not want to buy more VINEGAR.

I think you can also use mustard instead of plain vinigar. If you want, just use the vinigar you like the best ;)

Thanks for answering. May try white vinegar since it it not a strong flavor.

Your recipe for deviled eggs sounds great!

Have you ever made these with Miracle Whip instead of mayo? Reason I ask is we us MW at our house & have an abundant supply on hand, but would hate to use it if it would mess up the flavor.

Thanks for posting!

heaven, plain and simple Deviled eggs were the first things i learned to make as a kid. One tip i have is instead of using a spoon, scoop all the mixture into a plastic sandwich bag and cut one of the corners off, its like using a cake decorator and makes the eggs look way more professional.

If you add Cyan into the mix, you get spicey ones that my house refers to as "Demon" Deviled Eggs... Very good, but watch out though, one year my father put a bit too much and we ended up with Flaming Deviled Eggs.... ...your tongue caught fire with one bite.

Old eggs are best, but failing that due to procrastination - try this. Once the eggs are cooked and cooled in cold water ---- pour out some of the water, put lid back on pan, and shake the beejeebers out of it - up/down/side - to - side. The eggs will be totally cracked and some water will have entered under the shell to help loosen it. If this still doesn't work, then you are going to have to do better at remembering to get eggs in advance.<br/>

Do you have hints on getting your eggs to peel easily? I've about given up on deviled eggs cause it takes SO long to peel them compared to the time it takes to eat them. I usually follow many of the "wives tales" that are supposed to yield easier-to-peel eggs (cold water cooldown, for instance), but the results are quite inconsistent (and one of them - "use older eggs" isn't very workable when you want to go to the store and buy two dozen eggs for tomorrow's event...)

Peel them while under cold water or under a running tap. The water makes the shell fall right off.

Good instructable! I love deviled eggs. For those who havn't tried them, they're served cold, the garlic salt and mustard give some zest to the yolk, and the mayo makes it creamy and tasty. They're not hard to make, go try em!

Nice! and simple, i would try some, but i can't eat eggs...
