How to Make Picnic Deviled Eggs

Learn how to make picnic deviled eggs for an inexpensive and easy side dish to bring to any meal or potluck.

Hi, I'm Miranda with Recipe.com and, today, I'm gonna show you how to make Deviled Eggs. Now, this recipe has a little bit of a twist on the original in that instead of slicing them lengthwise and filling them that way, we are just going to scoop them out from the top, fill it back in the hole, and let it stand upright like this so it would be really, really cute and easy to take along for picnics, so let's get started. I have our ingredients all laid out here. We're gonna start with one dozen large eggs in the carton. You wanna keep this carton as well for later transport. One tablespoon of vegetable oil, one tablespoon of Dijon mustard, two teaspoons of chopped fresh dill, six tablespoons of mayonnaise, two teaspoons of pickle relish, an eighth of a teaspoon of salt, just a pinch of ground black pepper, and then two dashes of hot pepper. Okay, so I'm going to put the eggs into the pot, fill it with enough water just to cover, add in the vegetable oil, bring it to a boil, that rhymes, then reduce it to a simmer and let it cook for about 12 minutes. All right, so our eggs cooked, I peeled them, cool them off first, running them under cold water of course, so we are good to go. Here comes the nifty part. Now, under normal circumstances, you would just slice these lengthwise, right, and scoop out the yolks, but we're not doing that, we're making these fun picnic versions, so what we're gonna do is at the pointy end, just with a little bit, we're just going to cut off the white until we find the yolk, so just keep on cutting, little, little, little, until we get...until we get to the yolk. It's kinda taking a while with this little guy. This is like a joke egg. Okay, I found some yolk, guys, all right. So there it is. Perfect. We're just gonna-- kind of squeeze the egg together to get the yolk out, just be gentle with it. Squeeze it into a bowl. There it goes. It needs a little nudge with this fork. You can feel free to help it out. Best case circumstance is it will squeeze right out for you, but...this isn't too bad, either. Okay. Beautiful. Now, I am going to set the egg white back in this carton 'cause this is where we'll fill them, and I'm just gonna continue with the rest of the eggs. All right. So we've got our egg yolks here. It is time to make our delicious filling so just popping all of these ingredients into the bowl with the yolk and especially with the mayonnaise, making sure to just scoop it right out with the spatula, our dill, this is gonna be so tasty. Lots of pretty colors. The salt, pepper, hot sauce. Okay. And mix and mash these together. I'm just gonna use a fork for this. Yum, yum, yum. Deviled eggs are just such a great quintessential picnic or potluck, little side dish. Nice little hors d'oeuvre. And doing it this way, you're able to just stand them up and then bring them in the carton which I just think is perfect because you know what happens with the deviled eggs, they like roll around under the cellophane then they get all messy and it's not pretty. Okay. But this, this is pretty. Look how great this looks. Okay. So, now, and then with like a pastry bag, that's essentially what we're doing here, we are going to fill a resealable bag with this nice mixture. Gonna plop it down. Okay, so seal this up. Just gonna cut this little corner here, let me show you. Just cut this little corner off so that we can pipe this mixture into the egg whites. All right. Fabulous, fabulous. So let's bring our little curtain up. Look how cute. Two got a little bit mangled, that's gonna happen when you're cooking at home, it's no problem, it's still gonna taste just as delicious, and we are just gonna pipe that in. Look how cute that looks. Perfect. It's like a little homemade pastry bag, and just kind of mound it at the top like that, and just keep on keeping on until your deviled eggs are all ready for a picnic. Look how cute. How fast was that? We made a little excess, just kind of dot-- dot the little top. Look how cute this is. There you go. Super easy, super yummy, and look, we can just close the lid and we are ready to take our Deviled Eggs to a picnic.
