I normally follow my mother's method which is cooking the eggs, then taking the yolk, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. I have always added to it just a dollop of mustard. Yes dollop b/c I have never measured ingredients until the last few weeks..oppsie!
Well when I made these the other day I wanted to expand my cooking knowledge box..so Food Network to the rescue! I found a recipe from Sandra Lee HERE or you can see it below!
My finished product on my mom's lovely Christmas plate!
DIRECTIONS: Mash 6 hard-boiled egg yolks, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise or yogurt, 1 1/2 teaspoons spicy mustard, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon relish and 1/2 teaspoon paprika. Fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Top with chopped chives and crumbled cooked bacon.
**I did not have spicy mustard..I had a sweet & spicy mustard that I used. I did not have plain relish. I had a sweet pepper relish that I used.I did not have chives..I did not add/use Anything**
Until today I have always taken a spoon and just dipped the spoon into the mixture and then into the eggs. Well I was watching Paula Deen on Food Network and she showed how to use a plastic sandwich type bag, cut the tip and pipe the mixture into the eggs...LOVED it! The eggs looked so much better!
