Jean loves to make Deviled Eggs for potluck. Check here and here. It is a simple dish to make and you can make it ahead of time.


Deviled Eggs are best served chilled from the refrigerator.

  • finely chopped celery
  • a pinch of salt
  • ground black pepper
  • miracle whip
  • paprika

IMG_5137Slice the egg into half. Remove the egg yoke and place in a bowl and the egg white in a platter. Over cooking the egg will result a greenish yoke on the outside. I cook my hard boiled egg by placing the eggs in cold water and bring the water to a boil. Remove the pot from the stove and let it sit for 12 minutes, covered. This way, my hard boiled eggs will never over cooked. I also learned from Jean that in order to peel the egg without it sticking to the shell, put the eggs in icy cold water after they are cooked.
IMG_5139Jean has a neat container specially made for Deviled Eggs.
IMG_5144Mash the egg yoke with a fork until you get a fine crumb.

Mix in the finely chopped celery. A rib of celery is enough for a dozen eggs.

IMG_5148Blend in a few tablespoons of Miracle Whip.

Season with salt and ground black pepper.

Jean, thank you for sharing so much with us. You are a great demonstrator and a good leader to the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen.

    great pictures, but next time cook your eggs less so you don’t have green in your yolks. Interesting recipe with celery in it. I will have to give them a try.

      Put eggs in cold water (enough in pan to cover them past the top), bring to boil. After cooking place eggs in ice cold water for 10-15 mins. There won’t be any green ring or yolk, which is the sulphur inherent in the yolk itself.
