Deviled Eggs

What to do with all those Easter eggs?  Here are a few of our favorite ways to make Deviled Eggs.  We will be having some of each on the Sunday dinner table.  HAPPY EASTER!

Each recipe is for one dozen PERFECT BOILED EGGS, sliced in half length-wise.  Carefully remove the yolks, keeping the egg white halves intact.

Classic Deviled Eggs

One dozen cooked egg yolks

Mash yolks in medium bowl.  Add yellow mustard and mayo until creamy.  Start with a little of each and add more to get the taste and consistency you like. We like a little more mustard than mayo.
Add salt and pepper to taste.  Top with a sprinkle of paprika.

Try a little dill relish or sweet relish or chopped jalapenos to change it up a little.
