Check out this quick and easy recipe for deviled eggs!

I learned this recipe way back in 2nd grade, and since then deviled eggs have been a favorite during the holidays in our household. Deviled eggs are really easy to make, and even the kids can help!

This is a recipe for making a dozen deviled eggs (24 halves)

Here's what you'll need:

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Cover eggs with cold water  in a 3-quart heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook eggs for about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered,  for about 15 more minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking and let stand 5 minutes.

Peel eggs and halve lengthwise. Remove yolks and mash in a bowl with a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard, and cayenne and stir with fork until smooth, then season with salt and pepper.

After that, just take a spoon and scoop your yolk mixture into the egg halves, and you're done! You can garnish you deviled eggs with paprika, bacon bits,  and fresh chives!
