I don’t know about you, but growing up we only had Deviled Eggs on Easter. However, I have found in my many years of entertaining and catering that Deviled Eggs are to be enjoyed ALL THE TIME! My family LOVES them and my Mother In Love was the originator of the recipe I use ALL THE TIME now. Oh AND, if you happen to have an Instant Pot, you will be blessed every time you make hard boiled eggs because they will peel like a dream!!! My youngest daughter makes fun of me because if I were a sales person for Instant Pot I would no doubt begin with how wonderfully easy hard boiled eggs are to peel using the Instant Pot.
Here’s why… During my many years of catering, I tried every trick in the book to make my eggs peel easily. And more often than not, the tricks didn’t work, and oh how disappointed I was when I had over 100 eggs to peel. YES 100 EGGS!
But a couple of years ago my hubby bought me an Instant Pot for Christmas and I HAPPILY make deviled eggs all the time now, because, you guessed it, they PEEL LIKE A DREAM.
Okay, so about the recipe. The filling is made with Miracle Whip, also something I did not use growing up. We used Hellman's Mayonnaise and I honestly didn’t even know Miracle Whip existed until I was almost to high school when I had it at a friends' house in tuna salad and I immediately went home and told my mom we had to buy Miracle Whip! But she loved her Hellman's Mayo! So I was intrigued to try deviled eggs with Miracle Whip many many years later and now I get to share this favorite recipe with all of you!!!!
I made these last week for Father’s Day, but I also serve them Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, 4th of July, Weddings, Showers, Brunches and of course Easter.
Anytime Deviled Eggs
12 hard boiled eggs (for instant pot instructions click here)
½ cup plus 1 Tablespoon of Miracle Whip
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon finely ground pepper
½ teaspoon sugar
1 ¼ teaspoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon white vinegar
⅛ teaspoon dried dill weed
¼ teaspoon onion powder
Peel hard boiled eggs and put yolks in medium mixing bowl and egg whites on serving platter.
Mash the yolks with the back of a fork.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well, the smoother the filling the better.
Check for seasoning and adjust to your liking.
Spoon the filling into each egg white and serve.
A couple of tips:
- Use a zip lock bag to pipe the filling into the egg whites for less mess.
- If you have a star tip it will make your eggs look fancy and extra special.
