November 2 is National Deviled Egg Day!

Speak of the Devil

Trends come and go and styles are ever-changing but the deviled egg remains on the menu for our holidays each year. Easy to grab with one hand while balancing a cocktail in the other all while hugging Great Aunt Pauline and giving the family dog a you’re-a-good-boy pat on the head, these tasty little appetizers are big on bringing us together and we sure do need more of that this year.

Dread the mess of peeling your eggs? Cook them in an electric pressure cooker (we recommend the Instant Pot) on the steam rack with one cup of water on manual, low-pressure for seven minutes. Release the pressure, remove and cool in the fridge, and your eggs will peel clean and easy.
