I am bringing retro back. Caramel Pudding one day, Deviled Eggs another, there is definitely the sentimental in me coming out big time. Are you about to ask me if I am sharing a Pineapple Upside Down Cake next? Well, jokes on you because I have already done that. It's also so good, I promise. Anyway back to these EASY Classic Deviled Eggs, they are just that. The simple yummy version. One day I will share something elevated or perhaps something tex mex, but for now this was what hit the spot.
Honestly guys it had been years since I had them. I was flipping through an old recipe book of my mothers and found the recipe and figured why not. When I took a bite it took me all the way back to our Jeddah days. I remember my mother making these for our birthday parties and even then I could casually pop a few in my mouth without thinking about it. They are as I remembered, creamy, that hint of mustard, that slight twang at the end.
These Easy Classic Deviled Eggs are quite simple to make. They taste best when your eggs do so no anemic looking eggs thank you. Your eggs also taste best when they are correctly boiled. How you may ask? It's simple.
How to Hard Boil Eggs
1.) cover your eggs with cold water, bring to a boil
2.) once the mixture boils then put a lid on your pot and let them sit for 12 minutes.
You can peel and slice one egg to see if it's done right and if it is then awesome, otherwise let them sit for two more minutes. Hate peeling eggs? I find it's a cinch once I submerge them in cold water - the egg itself contracts and the space between the shell and the egg widens for quick peeling.
