Little Craving: Deviled Eggs

Two weeks ago, I watched The Help and there was a scene that featured deviled eggs. I got such a craving that the next morning it needed to be satisfied!

They are so simple yet so tasty and enjoyable!

More importantly they are super easy to make!

Here is how to make them.

3 hard boiled eggs*, peeled
2-3 tblsp. mayo
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
chives and dill
salt & pepper

small pot (to hard boil the eggs)
2 small bowls
fork, spoon
pastry bag (optional, not used in this recipe)

Cut the hard boiled eggs in half, lenghwise. Carefully remove the yolk with a spoon and place it in a small bowl. Add mayo, paprika, salt and pepper to the yolks and mix well.  Divide the mixture in two and place half of the mixture in another bowl. Add chives to one bowl and dill to the other, mix thoroughly. Taste to check and rectify the seasoning.  Divide the yolk mixture equally among the six egg halfs.**

To serve just sprinkle some paprika, chives and dill.  I like to serve them with cruncky toast on the side.

Hope you enjoy this simple recipe!

*A nicely hard boiled egg. Please none of that unsightly grey ring around the yolk!
**If you want a more stylish result, then you can use a pastry bag to fill the egg halfs with the yolk mixture

    Dear Kitchenani,

    Can you please tell me how to make a perfect hard-boiled egg without the grey ring, I always get the grey ring and I hate it. it looks ugly and it makes my yolk too dry.
