Imagine this scenario: It’s Friday at 4 p.m., and you’ve been in a rush all day. Grabbing your keys to run out the door for a string of must-do errands, your eye catches the calendar and the note scribbled on today's date: “Dinner Party at 5 p.m. Bring an Appetizer."

If your first inclination is to panic, there’s no need! You can have a plate full of fantastic, homemade appetizers made in minutes. Deviled eggs are a party classic. They cook up in no time at all, taste terrific and make for a perfectly quick, budget-friendly appetizer. 

Of course, don’t reserve deviled eggs for parties alone. Whether you need a simple Sunday dinner side dish, a great game-day finger food or an accompaniment to a springtime barbecue, deviled eggs deliver!

Classic deviled egg recipes typically call for a spoonful of mayonnaise stirred into the cooked yolks. But there’s no reason you have to get your deviled eggs stuck in a rut. We’ve mixed up three fantastically simple recipes that you are sure to love. Just follow our quick, step-by-step tutorial for Easy-to-Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs, then whip up one of our fun new flavors--Pesto, Chipotle or Pizza Deviled Eggs--for treats that taste truly eggs-traordinary!

Perfect, Easy-to-Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs

  1. Place the eggs in a large empty pot.

  2. Add cold tap water, making sure to put in enough water to cover the eggs completely with about an inch of water above them.

  3. Add 1 tablespoon of salt to the pot.

  4. Cover the pot with a lid.

  5. Set the pot on a large burner and bring to a boil.

  6. As soon as the eggs are boiling, turn the heat off.

  7. Keep the pot covered, and let stand for 15 minutes.

  8. Gently pour the hot water from the pot. Place the eggs in a large bowl, and cover with several cups of ice. This will “shock” the eggs and make them easy to peel.

  9. After sitting in the ice bath for several minutes, the eggs are ready to peel.

  10. Once peeled, try one of our recipes for Pesto, Chipotle or Pizza Deviled Eggs.
