This is a sponsored post, Kraft Foods sent me jars of MIRACLE WHIP and this recipe to try as part of the #proudofit campaign
I am a MIRACLE WHIP lover! We never even had mayo in the fridge growing up. when I got married my husband came from a mayo family, but I quickly converted him and he is now a MIRACLE WHIP lover as well. And of course we’re raising our kids right as well!
BUT there are a few classic recipes, like Deviled Eggs, I never thought to make the swap to MIRACLE WHIP… But that is changing! Adding MIRACLE WHIP brings a sweet and tangy flavor! Perfect for transforming your Easter eggs from something ordinary to extraordinary. I wasn’t sure what my family would think but my husband LOOOOOOVED it!
I love getting together with family and friends potluck style and bringing food. To dress up my eggs for Easter I used food dye to dye my eggs all pretty like. To see a full tutorial for how to dye Easter eggs with food dye head on over at Cupcake Diaries. I want to stress that this was Food dye, not store bought pellets so it’s safe for everyone to ingest!
This recipe is just 5 ingredients and takes less than 15 mins to prepare! It’s so easy my kids could make this! I love fast and easy food, since I’m usually wrangling 5 kids and a husband out the door to these gatherings as well! AND so pretty, Deviled eggs are a dish people are totally impressed with and i had no idea how easy they were to make!
Gather your ingredients. Make sure to dice your jalapeno super tiny and WASH YOUR hands after, don’t touch your itchy eye with your hand right after cutting… Ouch (yes I totally did that). Make sure you use a sharp knife to cut your eggs in half, you don’t want to break or crush your eggs (I always cook a few extra just in case)
- 12 hard-cooked eggs
- 2/3 C MIRACLE WHIP Dressing
- 2 tsp GREY POUPON dijon Mustard
- 1 jalapeño peppers, seeded & finely diced
- Cut eggs lengthwise in half.
- Remove yolks (they should pop right out) and place in medium bowl.
- Mash with fork.
- Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Pipe or spoon into egg white halves.
- Sprinkle with paprika.
- Garnish with additional jalapeno slices, if desired.
I used an open star tip to pipe the yolk mixture into the egg whites. Don’t use a CLOSED star tip because the chopped jalapeno’s will get stuck… Divide it evenly between all your eggs and Voila! Your ready to take your platter or plates to your Easter party!
I also have a post on perfect hard boiled eggs, but I know everyone has their own way of doing it. What is your favorite way to boil/cook eggs?
AND where you do fall on MIRACLE WHIP spectrum? I can’t wait to share a few more twists on classics over the next few months!
