Tips for making the best hard boiled eggs

  • Don’t over cook the eggs, once the water boils, cover the pan and turn the heat off. After 15 minutes, the eggs will be cooked through.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to the water to raise the PH level of the egg whites which will help to prevent them from sticking to the shell.
  • For best results, place the eggs under cold running water or an ice bath to cool them off completely which will make them easier to peel.
  • Tap the egg on the bottom and then gently roll it on a countertop or tabletop with your palm; start peelin at the large end.
  • If you are making deviled eggs for a crowd, make a few extra just in case the egg whites break apart or you need to adjust the texture of the filling.
How do you thicken watery deviled eggs?

If your deviled eggs are watery, add one of two more mashed egg yolks.

How do you thin out thick deviled eggs?

If the deviled egg filling is too thick, gradually add olive oil or a little bit more of Greek yogurt or a splash of apple cider vinegar.

I don’t have a food processor, can I still make deviled eggs?

Yes, you can use a blender, or electric mixer or you can mash the egg yolks with a fork.

What is the best size eggs to use for deviled eggs?

You can use any size eggs to make deviled eggs, but large eggs are the best. Small eggs might not hold together as well as large or jumbo eggs will.
