The Perfect Boiled Egg ~ Delicious Deviled Eggs



Ah the perfect egg..... So simple if you follow these few steps.

1 dozen eggs (make sure they are as fresh as you can get them)
1 medium pan
Enough water to cover the eggs about 1"
2 cups of ice

Put eggs in pan with water.  Bring to boil and bring down to a simmer. Put timer on for 12 minutes.   When done drain water and rinse with cold water 3 times. Fill pan with cold water leaving and add ice.  Let sit for 5 minutes. 
Crack and peel eggs under the water.  Place peeled egg back in water too cool.  
(If the white of the egg gets cut in anyway, let cool on plate)
Dry eggs in put into plastic baggy.  Refrigerate.


Deviled Eggs (passed down from my mom)



1 dozen hard boiled eggs sliced length wise, yolks gently taken out and put into a bowl.




With fork mash yolks very fine.
 Add to yolks 9 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard. Stir and mash down with the back of a spoon.



Fill each egg with yolk mixture and sprinkle with paprika.




*My favorite way to eat a deviled eggs is to top with chopped baby midget pickles.

1 onion, chopped large
1/2 bag frozen cauliflower florets

Chocolate Baker's Mix


I may have posted a recipe for this but it is worth the repeat

In my Magic Bullet I put equal parts:
PB flour
almond flour
erythritol (found at netrition.com)
Hershey's Dark Coca

Process above mixture till it is fine, taste to see if it is sweet enough.   

I use this bake mix to make Oreos.  Take as much as you need and slowly add hot water and 1 teaspoon of vanilla to mixture, bake at 350o for around 20 minutes until crisp

I also use this in MIM (muffin in a minute)   
4 tablespoons above mixture
1 egg
1 tablespoon cream
1 tablespoon butter soften
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix thoroughly and microwave for 1 minute.
