Deviled eggs are one of my family’s favorite foods, but I make them exactly once a year at Easter because they are such a pain to make.   It’s taken me many years, but I’ve finally perfected the art of making deviled eggs without killing myself thanks to a fun “kitchen hack.” I’ve decided that deviled eggs are a great dish to bring to holiday parties, too, and everyone loves them.  I love coming home with an empty plate.

Fresh & Easy

One of the tricks to great deviled eggs are great ingredients.  One of my favorite grocery stores is Fresh & Easy because they are smaller in size and carry many fresh organic and natural products.  One thing I love about Fresh & Easy brand products is that I know the product is all natural  and guaranteed to be free of artificial colors, and flavors.  The prices are great, too.

I was able to find all Fresh & Easy brand products for deviled eggs. My New Yorker husband insists on using spicy brown mustard and Fresh & Easy is actually one of his favorite brands.  I also picked up the Fresh & Easy real mayo (no cheating here!) along with organic eggs and my deviled egg kitchen hack – plastic storage bags.

Hard Boiled Eggs

The first step in deviled eggs is to hard boil the eggs.   Put your eggs in a pot and cover them with 1″ of water.  Bring the water to a full boil.  Cover and let stand for exactly 10 minutes.  While the eggs are cooking, fill a large bowl with cold water and add ice.  When your 10 minutes are up, drain the eggs.  Crack the shells gently with a spoon and then put them in the ice water.  Let them sit in the water for a minute or two then peel.

Look at those yolks! Perfect. No grayish tinge.  Mix the yolks with mayo and mustard.  As I said, we use spicy brown mustard, but whatever you want is fine. I like Dijon, too.

Deviled Egg filling

I used to try and scoop the yolk mix in to the shells and it was a huge mess and took forever.  Then one day it dawned on me to use a Fresh & Easy plastic food storage bag and pipe in the yolks.  Put your yolk mixture in the bag and squeeze it down in to a corner.  Snip the corner off and gently squeeze the yolk out of the bag in to your egg whites.  It takes a matter of seconds to fill all your eggs.

You could get fancy about it and try to make them all swirly and pretty but I usually just squeeze it and move on.  I love how “kitchen hacks” make life easier!

    I have used this method for years, but I put the yolks, mayo and mustard in the bag. Squish and mix well, then clip off a tip and pipe into the egg whites. One dirty bowl eliminated! Cooking is not that time consuming, but the clean up can be a bear! I like anything that makes less dishes.
