Celebrate National Deviled Egg Day with these deviled egg recipes.

Another food holiday is here and its is time to celebration National Deviled Egg Day. Deviled Eggs are the perfect holiday appetizer. Everyone loves them and you can make them ahead of time.

Need a tasty tip: Cut the eggs vertically instead of horizontally, cut a very small slice off the end of each egg half. That way the eggs will sit evenly on a plate, if you don’t have a deviled egg plate handy for serving.

Did you know that Monday, November 2, 2020 is National Deviled Egg Day? So break out of your shell and create some unusual deviled eggs with these recipes:

Let’s start with hard boiling the eggs.  Sounds so simple, but if you’ve ever had difficulty peeling your eggs, or the yolk turns green from overcooking, you will be glad to have these directions that work every time: Place eggs into a large pot, in a single layer and fill with water until eggs are covered about 2 inches. Place the pot onto a stove over high heat and bring to a boil. Once water is boiling, set a timer for 12 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer and once eggs have simmered for 12 minutes, remove from heat and transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water to prevent them from cooking further.

One of the main ingredients in deviled eggs is mayonnaise. Duke’s Mayonnaise has several delicious deviled egg recipes on their website including “Turkey and The Wolf Deviled Eggs” from the made with Dijon mustard and Lousiana hot sauce, topped with crumbled fried chicken skins, Turkey and the Wolf is a nostalgic New Orleans sandwich shop that was named Restaurant of the Year in 2017 by Bon Appétit  Magazine.

Love bacon and eggs, try a balsamic bacon deviled egg recipe. Once you try this recipe you’ll want to make them again and again. Balsamic vinegar adds that little bit of tartness and as we all know, bacon is very good on everything!

How to make your deviled eggs look as pretty as a picture? Use a piping bag or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner cut off to pipe the filling into each egg half. Garnish with a sprig of parsley, olive slice, sprinkle of paprika, thin slice jalapeno pepper,  fresh dill sprig…anything your heart desires including French Toast! French Toast Deviled Eggs combine maple syrup and breakfast sausage flavors, topped with a mini piece of French Toast. Perfect for brunch!

There are so many unusual ways to make deviled eggs – Dirty Martini Deviled Eggs, Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs, Creole Shrimp Deviled Eggs, the list could go on forever.

One deviled egg recipe you simply must try Fried Deviled Eggs! I was introduced to this recipe at a southern cooking school  and it remains one of my all-time favorite recipes. Your guests will be impressed!
