How do you make the perfect eggs for deviled eggs?
For the past year there's only one way I choose to make deviled eggs. The fail-proof way to create the perfect boiled eggs is by using an Instant Pot. You can put as many as a dozen in at once and it's literally timed on high pressure for 5 minutes. No babysitting, worrying if it's reached the boiling point etc. As soon as the 5 minutes are done, hit quick release, add your eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and you have a perfect batch of boiled eggs for making a deviled eggs recipe. No green line!
Tips For Perfect Deviled Eggs
- Cook the eggs in an Instant Pot for 5 minutes. If you rather use a stove top method, follow these recommendations from The Pioneer Woman.
- Add a splash of white vinegar to your water while cooking. This was a tip passed down to me from a beloved mentor Pat whom I miss dearly. Adding vinegar to the water for making deviled eggs helps make peeling eggs much easier.
- Place eggs in ice water for 2 minutes after cooking to stop the cooking process. This helps ensure there are no yucky green lines. Perfection at every bite!
- Make a few extra eggs. Seriously. You always have that one egg (or 2 or 4 if you're me with kids running around).
- Use large eggs. This is the perfect size for deviled eggs!
- Wipe your knife between each cut with a damp paper towel or cloth. This keeps your cuts clean for a professional look.
- Use a pastry or Ziploc bag for filling the egg cavities with the yolk mixture. So much prettier than using the spoon method.
- Serve immediately. You can prep the eggs, just don't fill the eggs until you're ready to serve.
- Make it your own. Add minced veggies, a certain spice or herb, etc. Cooking is fun! Deviled eggs are like a blank canvas, have fun!
