Recipe Tips

  • If you want to make the eggs look super fancy, then using a piping bag with a star nozzle is a great way to achieve some pretty cool effects.
  • Make sure you start the timer when the water is simmering to ensure that the eggs are fully cooked when you go to slice them open.
  • If your eggs are floating when you first add them to the water, then this is a good indicator that they have gone bad and should be discarded.
  • These deviled eggs go amazing topped with some sliced crispy bacon. This tweak will, unfortunately, require extra work unless you already have some fried bacon lying around.
  • You can also top with an herb or spice. For example, chives, parsley, or even paprika works amazing when sprinkled over the top of the finished eggs.
