To hard cook egg..., cover eggs with water in saucepan.
Bring eggs to boil over medium/high heat.
As soon as eggs start to boil, remove from heat, cover and let them sit in the hot water 15 minutes. This step is important to finish the cooking.
After 15 minutes immediately immerse hot cooked eggs into cold water with ice cubes. This stops the cooking and cools them.
My mom taught me that a sprinkle of Parsley flakes and Paprika really dressed up a dish. These make your Deviled Eggs look pretty.
I find it easiest to peel hard cooked eggs under warm running water, using my thumb.
This method of boiling usually gives very nice results. Overcooking can make the yolks green.
Using sharp knife, carefully slice eggs lengthwise in halves.
The sharper the knife, the better.
The yolks usually pop out easily. Don't worry if a little is left behind.
Mash with fork.
Add salt, pepper, dry mustard and salad dressing. I prefer Miracle Whip Lite. The regular will work as would mayonnaise.
Stir to mix in. In some cases if yolks are a pale yellow, a tiny drop of yellow food coloring brightens up the yellow. I love farm fresh eggs and get mine right from a nearby farm.
After well mixed, mixture and egg halves can be refrigerated until closer to serving time if its going to be a several hours.
Spoon into egg white halves and mound mixture.
Time to dress them up with parsley and paprika.
