Basic Deviled Egg Recipe

5-Ingredient Deviled Eggs With a Hint of Spice

Who needs a fussy deviled egg recipe when there's a mountain of hard-boiled eggs to get through? Devouring the eggs can be as simple as deviling them with four ingredients, including honey Dijon mustard, which gives the egg filling a sweet touch, and cayenne pepper for an unexpected, spicy kick.

Notes

This recipe can be easily multiplied for sit-down meals. Calculate one egg, or two deviled egg halves, for each person. A potato masher works better than a fork for large quantities.

For a mild and not spicy version, use paprika instead of cayenne.

Recipe For Basic Deviled Egg

Ingredients

  1. 3 eggs, hard-boiled
    1 tablespoon mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon honey Dijon mustard
    Salt, to taste
    Cayenne (or paprika), to taste

Directions

  1. Remove shells from hard-boiled eggs and discard. Cut eggs in half length-wise. Carefully scoop out yolks and place them in a small bowl. Use a fork to mash yolks until they are completely and evenly crumbled. Alternate between mashing in mayonnaise and honey Dijon, one teaspoon each at a time, until a smooth, fluffy paste forms. Salt to taste.
  2. Place egg white halves on a serving dish. Fill yolk holes with a little less than a tablespoon of egg yolk mixture. Sprinkle with cayenne and serve immediately.
