I actually had no idea what deviled eggs were until I was in my second or third year of college. My housemate made them for dinner one night, and since then, I’ve been hooked. These little eggs make great appetizers and snacks. And they’re perfect for entertaining guests.

While they look so elegant and presentable, they’re super easy to make. They’re great as appetizers for small gatherings, or if you simply want to take your hard boiled eggs to the next level, you can turn them into deviled eggs.

And did you notice my brand new wooden board? My friend Emily from Emily’s Daily burned the name of my blog into the cutting board. It’s such a unique gift and a perfect fit for my blog =)

First, place your eggs in a pot and fill the pot with water until the eggs are submerged.

Turn the heat to high and let the water come to a boil. Once the water is boiling, remove the pot from heat. Cover the pot with a lid, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for about 10 minutes.

Then transfer the eggs to ice cold water and let them submerge for about a minute. You can find details on how to make the perfect hard boiled eggs at The Kitchn.

Crack the eggs, and carefully remove the egg shells.

Slice the eggs in half. Remove the yolk with a small spoon, and place the egg yolk into a bowl.

Mash the yolk until it is as smooth as possible, and then add the mayo, garlic powder, and salt into the bowl. Mix until the ingredients are evenly combined. You can taste the mixture to see if the flavor is to your preference, and adjust the seasoning to your taste.

    Your deviled eggs and personalized board look adorable! I use almost the same recipe, although I change up the seasoning depending on what I have on hand.

    I am a deviled egg lover from way back, and I almost always make them for pot lucks. I like making different flavors depending on ingredients I have on hand, and mark them with various toppings such as a piece of jalapeño, sweet red pepper, black olive…possibilities are endless!
    I might be fun for you to have a “deviled egg recipe extravaganza” where people send in their one favorite recipe.
