Maybe not because you’re not sure how to make them without the eggs rolling around and breaking in the process. Well whether you want to make a few or more than a dozen we have the answer for you here!
Deviled eggs are specific to everyone of course but this is the best way to make deviled eggs in my opinion:
- Make Instant Pot hard boiled eggs (directions below)
- Once done put in a bowl with cold water and some ice cubes
- Take shells off
- Slice in half and remove yolks
- Use a fork to smash yolks, or use food processor for smoother consistency
- Add in with yolks from 14 hard boiled eggs
- 3/4 c mayonnaise – not miracle whip and not light
- 3 tbsp mustard, more or less depending on preference, taste as you go
- 1/2 dill pickled diced fine, or use relish
- Spoon into a pint size freezer bag
- Put into fridge for 1-2 hours
- Cut tip off
- Squeeze into egg halves
- Sprinkle with dill, paprika, and diced chives
