Who doesn’t love deviled eggs? They have been a favorite of mine for many years! I remember my mom making deviled eggs when I was little and they were so. darn. good. every time. And they still are!
This is why I make them when there is any kind of family function going on and they are usually the first food item to go. Plus, it’s an easy nutrient dense recipe to whip up.
It’s so sad that these delicious morsels are only made on rare occasions… But wait! Who’s paying attention whether there’s an event going on or not?! The other day I had no idea what to make for lunch and came up with the bright idea of making deviled eggs! This is something Andrew loves so if I can have another opportunity to get some eggs made with healthy fats in him, then I’m game.
I recommend making your own mayo. It’s incredibly easy and doesn’t take long to make. Unfortunately, even organic store bought mayo contains tons of nasty, rancid ingredients and the only way to get around that is by making your own! My favorite homemade mayo is a recipe by Sarah from The Healthy Home Economist. I suggest using 3/4 cup expeller pressed sunflower oil and 1/4 cup olive oil. I’ve found this ratio works very well and is not overwhelming with olive oil flavor.
Please note that I have not added any exact measurements for the recipe. Deviled eggs are all about what tastes good to you which makes it such an easy recipe! I suggest starting with one or two tablespoons each of mayo, mustard and sour cream and continue to add more of each if necessary.
- 1 dozen pastured eggs
- mayo (homemade is best or a quality store brand)
- organic yellow mustard
- organic sour cream
- unrefined sea salt (my favorite brand here)
- pepper (my favorite brand here)
- paprika (my favorite brand here)
If you are really trying to impress than I suggest wiping off the sides of the egg white with a wet towel. I usually skip this step because I don’t really care (it’s usually for family).
And that’s it! Don’t wait until the next family function to indulge in this delicious way of eating eggs!
Until next time,
