Tips & Tricks
There are a few great tricks you can use to ensure that your eggs come out perfectly every time.
- Consider varying the fillings, especially if you are making lots of eggs. You can use any moist sauce to replace or partially replace the mayonnaise if you want to. Avocado, salad cream, salad dressing, cream cheese, and plenty of other options will work perfectly, and make for some nice variety.
- You can also alter the spices you use, or add other toppings. Sprinkle grated cheddar, feta, bacon bits, chives, chili flakes, or any other toppings that you fancy on the eggs once they are complete. Green onions are also a popular option.
- Add a dash of Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce if you want to add a salty, umami undertone to the eggs.
- Make sure your filling is nice and smooth before you add it to the eggs. This creates a great texture when biting into the eggs, and ensures that the flavor is evenly spread. If you leave lumps, you may find that the eggs don’t taste as good.
- Time your eggs carefully so that you don’t under-cook or over-cook them. They will turn rubbery and unpleasant if over-cooked, and you won’t be able to mash the yolks if they are under-cooked. Although it depends on the size of the egg, eight or nine minutes is usually about right for a hard egg.
How well will the deviled eggs keep?
You should keep the deviled eggs in the fridge for up to four days. If they are not very fresh when cooked, try to use them up more quickly. Ensure that they are wrapped or kept in an airtight container so that they don’t dry out.
Can you freeze the deviled eggs?
No, you shouldn’t freeze the eggs, as it will ruin their texture. If you won’t have time to cook them on the day, cook them the day before, put them in a container and make sure they are kept in the fridge. Don’t leave them at room temperature for more than two hours, or one hour if the room is hot (over 90 degrees F).
How should you mash the yolks?
You can mash the yolks with a fork, as they should be perfectly soft. If you are making a large batch of eggs, you may wish to use a food processor. You can also use a potato masher or potato ricer. Anything that will break the yolks up should work
Do you have to add the filling straight away?
No, if you would rather put the filling and the eggs in the fridge separately, you can do this. This may make it easier to store them, because you can stack the egg whites, and put the yolks in a small airtight container.
How can you stop the yolks from going gray?
Gray egg yolks don’t look appealing at all, and you can avoid them by ensuring that you cool the eggs down promptly once they have been cooked. The gray color is caused by iron and sulfur reacting together to create iron sulfide. Cooking them for too long will also result in this green-gray color.
How do I store the deviled eggs?
Place the eggs in an airtight container or cover the plate with plastic wrap, and put them in the fridge. Don’t store them at room temperature; they should be kept chilled until you are ready to eat them.
