Spicy Deviled Egg Recipe

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)

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!

  • eggs bakers dozen
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda

  2. Fill the pan with water, make sure it's at least an inch above the eggs
  3. Sprinkle Salt and baking soda over the water
  4. Place a lid over the pan and bring the water to a boil
  5. When the water starts to boil turn the heat to low (if you have a gas stove if you have a coil just turn it off)
  6. Let it simmer for 1 min.
  7. Turn off (or take off) the heat, leave the lid on (don't take it off) and let sit for 10 mins
  8. Take out the extra egg (bakers dozen remember) and slice it. It should be done but if it's not place the lid back on for 1-2 more mins
  9. Using a sloted spoon take out the eggs and place in a strainer, run under cold water until cool and refrigerate until your ready to use

I've heard so many keys for easy to peel eggs over the year I use three of them 1. use 4-5 day old eggs, fresh eggs don't peel well 2. Start with cold water for gradual cooking 3. add baking soda and salt to the water

Fruit Dip

This is the last of the recipes I made for my Easy Potluck Party foods class at the Utah Home show last week! These are all super fast and easy to make, yet still tasty and impressive for the other guest to enjoy! Do you have a favorite dish you like to make and take to holiday parties?

fruit-dip

I’m kind of picky when it comes to fruits. I don’t just love to sit down and eat an apple, but with this dip? I could eat a bushel of apples! I like this dip fresh, when the toffee still has a crunch to it. But it’s still delicious the next day (if you HAVE any left)
