delectable little devils

Today, I had a major hankering for deviled eggs. It could be because it's Easter-time and deviled eggs are always on the menu at family parties. I love them. Love. So I whipped up a batch of my own. It was my very first time making them!

I followed Betty Crocker's recipe (thanks for the tip Jenny). That Betty, I'm so glad she put all her good food into a book for the whole world to use.

Betty C's Deviled Eggs

6 eggs hard cooked and peeled - psst... do you know the right way to hard boil eggs?
3 T mayo
1/2 tsp ground mustard (but seriously? who has that on hand? I just used mustard from a bottle)
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Gently slice the eggs in half length-wise. Pop out the yolks into a small bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork to a fine crumble. Stir in mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper. Whip it up good! Scoop some yolk mixture into each egg and sprinkle with paprika. And if you're like me, do your best not to eat the whole plate in one siting!

Believe it or not I have never eaten one of these....maybe this should be the year. :)

I called Grandma Carol last time I made them. She uses prepared mustard too. And she salts her yolks.

Oh... Easter. I forget these things when I am overseas. Looks delicious.
