Hints for making light and fluffy deviled eggs!
Don’t use eggs less than 4 days old, it will make the egg shells impossible to peel, ahhhhhhhh! It’s so frustrating when you go to peel the shells the whole egg starts to fall apart!
- 6 Organic eggs
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3 radishes, sliced thin then cut into matchsticks
Place the eggs in a pot and add cool tap water to cover the eggs by 2 inches. On medium-high heat, bring the water to a boil for 5 minutes. Turn off the burner cover the pot and move it off the burner. Let sit for 7 minutes.
Remove the eggs using a slotted spoon. Place the eggs in a bowl and hold under cool running water for 1 minute then into a bowl filled with water and ice for 10 minutes. Drain the water, cover with a lid and shake the pan back and forth vigorously to crack the shells.
Under cool running water start to peel away the shells and gently lift the thin skin under the shell. The shells should then slide off easily.
Let the eggs cool to room temperature.
Slice the eggs in half from top to bottom or slice in half in the middle
