Cooking tips for the caring cook.

Deviled Eggs

How you slice your eggs is a matter of preference, but here are some fool-proof suggestions to help you get the best results when slicing and serving your deviled eggs.

How to Slice Those Deviled Eggs

  • To easily slice deviled eggs, dip your knife into warm water first. This will produce a smooth slice with no egg stuck to the knife.
  • Traditionalists will cut their eggs in half lengthwise, then carefully remove the yolks and place them in a separate bowl.
  • Filling deviled eggs: Put the yolk mixture in a small ziplock-type baggie. Cut one corner of the bottom of the bag. Squeeze the filling into the halved egg whites. Less mess, quick and easy.
  • If you slice a tiny piece off the bottom of the whites, they will sit better in your egg plate.

Peeling Eggs

Poke an egg with a small sewing needle before hard boiling, and the egg will peel with ease. Hold that needle in place with a magnet refrigerator clip!
