Special Occasion Worthy Deviled Eggs

 
Easter is coming and there I’ll be, assigned one of the easiest tasks for cooking, boiling eggs.  Well really it’s deviled eggs.   I figure deviled eggs are a step above making a salad and bringing drinks.  It seems easy, but I have a problem with deviled eggs.  It’s the shell.  Rather the shell that sometimes gets all stuck to the outside of the egg after the boiling.  I hate that.  This isn't really an issue if I’m serving up boiled eggs for the kiddo’s breakfast.  But when it comes time to set boiled eggs on a tablescape for Easter dinner or even a cookout, they need not look like craters.  So this time I’ve added a little salt to the water and waited to peel them once they cooled down. And what do you know? No craters!
One last thing…I like that these also work well with dinner during the week!

 

Enjoy!
