Small Recipes...Deviled Eggs

 I like Deviled eggs, but now that I am cooking for one, or two, I don't eat them fast enough. The Dinner for Two cookbook by Betty Crocker has this recipe I adapted that they say would serve two, but hopefully I will eat all of them or my daughter will stop as she often does and she will help me eat the rest. 
 They call for dry mustard which I do keep on hand but if you don’t, just use regular and it will take less Salad Dressing. I did add more Salad dressing to mine as I like them creamy and tried to sprinkle them with Paprika though I got slightly heavy handed there. I never have been able to just sprinkle them lightly.
 If you have a Deviled Egg recipe that you like use that and just use this as a guide line for the serving size. Next time I will try using just two eggs as I think that would be a better size for me. 

Deviled Eggs
3 hard cooked eggs
¼ teaspoon salt
dash of pepper
¼ teaspoon Dry Mustard
About 2 tablespoons Salad Dressing or to your taste
¼ teaspoon white wine vinegar
Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out yolks and place in a small dish.
Mash yolks with a fork and stir in ingredients. 
You can fill egg white half with two spoons or pipe it in with a frosting tip.
Sprinkle lightly with paprika and keep refrigerated until you are ready to use them.

  1. I love deviled eggs. I like a touch of relish in mine, but hubby wants them plain Jane. Mayo and a tiny bit of mustard.
    I don't like dry mustard. The taste is too strong for me.

    1. The relish sounds good, sweet or dill? Dry mustard can be a little strong. I use either depending on what I have handy. Use less if you use the dry.

  2. I love deviled eggs, and this recipe looks like the perfect amount for me and my husband. Deviled eggs are the perfect addition to any meal and a great way to use extra eggs,thanks for the recipe!

    1. This recipe is what I would consider the right amount for two. Deviled eggs are so good and do use up the extra eggs. Enjoy.

  3. I made Deviled Eggs last Thursday. They are a great addition to a meal. I use mustard and sweet pickle relish and mayonnaise in mine. My family loves them.

    1. Belinda, with two of you using relish in your deviled eggs I am going to try it the next time I make some.
