I am sharing my famous recipe for deviled eggs. I make these every event I attend, and they barely last a few minutes.
Many people get too crazy with deviled egg recipes. But mine is simple, and delicious.
1 dozen eggs
1/2 cup Mayo
YES! It really is that simple. No mustard.
Add eggs to a pot of water. Bring to a boil. Once it boils, turn off the stove. Let your eggs sit in the hot water for 10 minutes. Then immediately drain all hot water, and run under cold water for 5 minutes. Peel eggs, and remove yolks. Add mayo, salt and pepper to your yolks. With a hand mixer, blend mixture until creamy. The key to this recipe is understanding it will vary every time. You MUST taste your yolk filling. Adjust from there. You want your filling to taste more like mayo, than egg. But don’t go mayo crazy. You can alaways add more, but you cannot take away. Remember, salt also goes a long way with this. Once it is perfect, put filling into a plastic bag. Cut the corner of the bag, and pipe your filling into the egg whites. Sprinkle a bit of paprika on top, and watch the hawks dive in!
One of our favorite breakfasts and it’s packed with protein.
1 whole wheat tortilla
Low sodium refried black beans
2 scrambled egg whites
1 T shredded mozzarella
While your eggs are cooking, heat the tortilla in a dry pan on medium heat. Spread half of the tortilla with beans and the other half with cheese. Add scrambled eggs. Once the cheese starts melting, fold in half. Let the tortilla crisp nicely, then cut and serve with sliced avocado.
People of the NJ area: PJ’s Pancake House in Princeton
I have been going to this eatery for years, and they never disappoint. While I do love their potato pancakes served with sour cream AND applesauce, my favorite breakfast item they serve is the Eggs Benedict. If you’ve never had Eggs Benedict before, what are you waiting for! Go to PJ’s right now and order them. (yes they are open until midnight)
I’m hungry just thinking about it!
They also serve them with this wonderful potato hash, which has green chilies in it.
