Ingredients for Deviled Eggs:
This is a list of simple ingredients you probably already have in your fridge.
- yellow mustard - you can use Dijon mustard if you prefer
- spices: sea salt, black pepper plus paprika for garnish. You can go crazy and use smoked paprika if you have it. I usually don't, ha!
How to Make Low Carb Deviled Eggs
Start by hard boiling eggs. My favorite way to make hard boiled eggs is in the Instant Pot. They are SOOOOOO easy to peel when you cook them this way.
Here's how to make eggs in the Instant Pot: Place 1 cup water in the bottom of your Instant Pot. Add the trivet and place 6 eggs on the trivet. Cover and lock the lid. Cook for 6 minutes. Perform a quick release & put in an ice bath for 5 mins.
Like I said, this is the best way to make easy to peel eggs, in my opinion.
But, there's more than one way to hard boil eggs...
How to make eggs on the stove top: You can also cook the eggs on the stovetop by bringing a pot of water to a rolling boil. Carefully add the eggs to the pot of boiling water.
I like to use a slotted spoon to gently place them into the pot to avoid cracking the shells.
Boil the eggs for 10-12 minutes.
Plunge them into a bowl of cold water and ice (often called an ice bath) when the eggs are done, then peel. Slice eggs in half lengthwise and set the egg whites aside.
Place egg yolks in a small to medium sized bowl and mash well using a fork to break up lumps.
Add mayo, yellow mustard, salt, and pepper to taste and mix together well.
Add the yolk filling back into the egg halves using a small spoon. Or, if you're feeling fancy, you can use a piping bag to fill the egg halves with the egg yolk mixture.
A small sandwich baggie works, too! You can add the egg yolk mixture to a baggie and snip off the corner of the bag with a pair of scissors. This gives you control of where the deviled egg mixture goes and pipes it right into the egg half!
Ahhh, there are so many ways you can make delicious deviled eggs.
You could get fancy and add smoked salmon, some chives....
Add a little splash of hot sauce or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for some heat.
I'll be adding some more deviled egg recipes when harvest is over!
