Men with Tools, part 2

Deviled Eggs are both a simple thing and a personal thing.  Every cook who makes them does it a little different.  But Men with Tools are back hard at work and this is one of their favorite snacks.  I can't hang dry wall, but I can feed those who do.  So, here is my take on deviled eggs.

Halve 6 hard-cooked eggs.  Remove yolks and mash with the tines of a fork.

Add to the yolks 1/4 c. mayo, 1 t. vinegar, 1 t. prepared yellow mustard, 1/2 t. dijon mustard, 1/8 t. salt .  Combine with the fork.

Now let me be very clear about this.  I do not own a piping bag and I don't plan to at any point in the future.  I am a simple girl.  Piping into eggs is not something I'm likely to do.  

But my melon ball scoop is just the right tool for for filling deviled eggs in my kitchen.  That's all I have to say about that.

Into the beer fridge you go, little eggs.

Remember to be happy.


  1. Yep we do that the same, only I put my filling in a sandwich bag and "pipe" it into the egg halves waiting to be filled. It is always best to feed the helpers!

  2. Thanks, I've always wondered how these were made.
