It’s no secret that I love Deviled Eggs. No matter what you do to them, you can’t help but make something delicious. But there are some tips and tricks to getting perfect looking eggs.

  1. When slicing the eggs be sure to wipe the blade clean with a damp towel to get a clean cut
  2. Mash the yolks first and then add the mayonnaise (or sour cream) in small additions so you get a lump free filling
  3. Always, always use an icing bag with a large piping tip to pipe the filling into the cases. Using a spoon just doesn’t cut it.
  4. Get flavour into the filling but add additional toppings, sprinkles and dashes of spices, herbs and sauce to the top for more visual interest

These festive eggs are flavoured with mayonnaise, mustard, hot sauce and pepper. I’ve added chopped parsley and finely diced cooked Turkey bacon and it’s absolutely delicious. I made this for some friends and one of them said she ‘hates deviled eggs’ I encouraged her to just try one and she simply loved them!

Deviled eggs are a great app to serve as they can be filling especially when your guests arrive hungry and are drinking. There’s very rarely any left over but if there are I just sandwich them together and eat them for breakfast, or chop up the egg and use it as a sandwich filling!
