It wouldn’t be Easter without Deviled Eggs, now would it? These creamy yolk-filled egg whites are loved by kids and adults alike.  Deviled Eggs can be fixed so many different ways, but at Easter, our family likes the good old traditional ones like Grandma use to make.

These deviled eggs are so easy and quick to make, and I always have to make plenty.  I see why many consider these an appetizer, (you know, before the main meal), because they usually get eaten at my house before I have time to get the rest of the food on the table…

Here is how I made them…

Top Left – I sliced some hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise and removed the yolks.  I arranged the egg white halves on a serving dish and set them aside.

Top Right – I added the egg yolks to a bowl and used my pastry blender to cut through the yolks until they were in fine pieces.  Then I added some miracle whip, mustard, sugar, salt & pepper to the egg yolks.

Bottom Left – I mixed all the ingredients together until the mixture was very smooth and creamy.  It’s important to get any lumps out of the mixture, using a fork is necessary to press out any small lumps.

Bottom Right – I transferred the egg filling to a pastry bag and piped it into the egg white halves.  I used a Wilton 8B tip, but feel free to use any piping tip or simply spoon the filling into the egg whites.

Then all I did was sprinkle paprika over the eggs.  I like to fill the egg whites with the filling just minutes before serving them.
