I love the ease of deviled eggs but they always seemed like a ton of work and the mayo alone could be devastating to my on track week! I have found a way to have them that fits my meal plan and my taste buds! I can not keep these in the house by Wednesday they are all gobbled up!
Not to mention they are the easiest thing for me to throw in a container with other fresh veggies and fruit to make my own Bento Box! Especially when I am working from Starbucks it is always something that tempts me so now I just started bringing my own along with me! Perfect for when you know you'll be running errands and don't wanna end up in a drive though! I was the queen of a Mcdonalds visit but these days I go prepared and reap the rewards of meeting my goals and also saving money! Besides I can't go to McDonalds and not get fries legit I am pretty sure that is an impossible thing..... I mean right!?!?!?
Time 15 min Makes 12 eggs Containers- 4 deviled eggs- 1 Red 1 Teaspoon
12 eggs ( I prefer organic when possible)
1 cup of water
1 Bowl of ice water
Salt and pepper to taste
1 generous tablespoon Dijon Mustard
3 Tablespoons Mayo ( I use Dukes because they are no sugar added)
3 tablespoons of water
Sprinkle of Smoked Paprika ( regular is fine too)
Place rack in instant pot and pour 1 cup of water in, place eggs on rack in single layer
Press Manual, low pressure 6 min
Release steam when timer goes off and place eggs immediately into ice bath allow to cool 5-10 min then peel eggs. The shell will come of very easily! No More ugly eggs :)
Place egg yokes in bowl, add mayo, water, mustard and salt and pepper to taste
Mix with hand mixer on high to get a creamy texture, fill eggs with about 1 tablespoon of filling
Sprinkle with smoked paprika and enjoy!
* You can also make this if you do not have an instant pot by placing eggs in a pot with cold water bring to a boil allow to boil for 1 min then remove from heat cover and let stand for 10 min promoptly remove eggs so they do not over cook and turn green, add to an ice bath and allow to cool.
