Egg-stra Eggs?

This morning I decided to make Deviled Eggs with some of the week-old eggs in the fridge.  The "hubbs" takes them to work on occasion, and they get devoured in a very short time.  Sometimes his co-workers order them from me - he'll walk in the door and say "I've got an order for De-VILED eggs for you"!
Boiling Eggs
I'll share my recipe today - it's a little different than most, but every bit as tasty!  Great for a picnic or potluck, and wonderful for the holiday weekend!

 Deviled Eggs

1.)  Put 6 whole eggs in a pot covered with cold water.  Heat to a boil, cook for 10 minutes.  Remove from the heat and drain off the hot water.  Rinse the eggs, then fill the pot with cold water (you can add ice cubes to it if you wish), to cool them.  When they are cool, peel off the shells.
2.)  In medium size bowl, mix 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 Cup sour cream, 1 tsp horse radish sauce, 1/2 tsp. mustard, salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.  Cut the eggs in half lengthwise, and pop the yolks into the bowl with the mayonnaise and other ingredients, mashing and mixing well.  Using a pastry bag, or spoon, fill the halved eggs with the mixture, sprinkling each egg with paprika or cayenne.  Serve chilled.

TIP:  Hard boiled eggs peel much better when they're about a week old - then the whites don't break off in chunks as the shells are removed.

I too haven't made them in a very long time. Maybe even a good year! You've got me wanting to make them real soon. Thanks for the recipe! I've never added all of those extras in mine before. I usually just add mayo and a little mustard. Not sure about the horseradish. I've never even had that before! lol

Have a Great Labor Day Weekend!

That sounds great. I often put horseradish in egg salad, but hadn't tried it in deviled eggs. My favorite deviled eggs recipe is from a vintage cookbook I got from my grandmother. You add cheddar cheese to the eggs - I'll put it on my blog in the near future if you want.
We have 10 chickens and 1 rooster. We've only had them since March, but it's been so much fun.
Thanks for commenting on my blog and becoming a new follower :-)
