While deviled eggs may seem like they can be a bit complicated, in fact they don't take much time at all to whip up. The key to good hard boiled eggs is the boiling time, and the time it takes to cool them down. I was always taught to boil the eggs for at least 12 minutes, you want the yolk cooked firmly, no runny yokes for deviled eggs! Also, its a good idea to start them off in the warm water before it boils. Also, cooling them off is important as well. You want to run them under cold water until the temperature of the pot has cooled down and then refrigerate them for a bit too. Or, if you want them right away, you can put them in an ice bath, with some cold water, and some ice.

If you already know how to boil eggs, then you're half way there. All it takes is doing the steps for hard boiled eggs like I mentioned above, and they probably have their own method too, but its good to try out different ones til you find one that works for you. Next comes peeling the shells, and removing the hardened yolk, making sure it's fully cooked. Then, you dress up the yolk by adding the yolk to a mixture of relish, mustard, and mayo (with salt and pepper too of course) and that's it! Literally all you need to do is boil eggs, and then simply whip up this little mixture to add in the middle. Once you get in a groove for making these yummy little treats, they will become a staple in your home.
