Deviled Eggs

We’re making deviled eggs this week.  We looked in our Masterchef Cookbook for making the perfect hard boiled egg.  The deviled eggs are our creation and they were yummy!

Ingredients:

6 eggs

2 Tablespoons mayonaise

1 Teaspoon olive oil

2 teaspoons dijon mustard

1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

salt and pepper

Paprika, chives and capers for garnish

Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover with one inch of cold water.

Place on the stove on medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil.

Turn off the heat, cover the pot and let it sit 10 minutes.

Fill a bowl with ice water.  Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place in the ice water.  Allow to sit 5 minutes.

Gently crack and peel the shells off.

 

Cut the egg in half lengthwise and scoop out the yolk.  Place the in a bowl and smash with a fork.

In the bowl, add mayonaise, olive oil, mustard, and lemon juice.  Mix together well, add salt and peper to taste.

Gently fill each egg white with the filling.  Add optional garnish of capers, chopped fresh chives and sprinkle paprika over all.
