Game Winning Recipes - Deviled Eggs

Monday, January 28, 2019
Here we are. A week away from the Superbowl. Currently, you STILL don't know what you're taking to that Superbowl party you were invited to. Maybe my Swicy Sauce was too complicated for you or maybe you don't even rock with chicken wings like that (that's strange). Whatever your reasoning, here is a simple recipe for deviled eggs that will keep your potluck invites coming season after season.

DISCLAIMER: My "disclaimer" is that I am a Black woman and I only use measurements when I'm following someone else's recipe; thus, for all of my recipes, you will simply have to do it 'til it's right.

1 dz. large eggs
White sugar
Mt. Olive Sweet Relish
*I recently learned a [better] way to boil my eggs that cooks them perfectly EVERY time from Sister Ayesha Curry in The Seasoned Life. Find that method below.
  • Place eggs in a medium saucepan, and cover with cool water (you always want to use cold water when boiling anything). Bring the water to a boil, then turn off the heat and cover. Let the eggs sit in the hot water for 11 minutes.
  • After 11 minutes, place the eggs in a bowl of cold, ice water. After the eggs are COMPLETELY cold, peel them.
  • Cut each egg in half (the long way) and scoop all of the yolk into a mixing bowl. Set the eggs aside.
  • Mash/mix the yolk until most of the lumps are gone. Add a little more than 1/2 a cup of mayonnaise to the yolk (I also add a little bit of mustard - I don’t like sour deviled eggs so it’s usually no more than like a tablespoon for me).
  • Add 2-3 tablespoons of relish and add sugar to taste (I don’t know how much sugar I use, I just add until it’s sweet enough). 
  • Add a teaspoon of salt + pepper. Mix everything together until the mixture is well-combined.
  • The last step is to add the yolk mixture back into the eggs. You can either use a spoon OR if you wanna be fancy, you can put all of the mixture into a Ziploc bag, distribute all of it to one corner of the bag and then cut a small hole in that corner and squeeze out (this is the innovative version of a piping bag used to ice cakes lol).
  • Sprinkle paprika onto each egg (for aesthetic, not to taste) and serve! You don't have to serve right away; rather, you can make them Saturday night and they'll be ready to go Sunday afternoon for the game.
