After the excitement of decorating and hunting for Easter eggs, there is going to be a lot of hard boiled eggs leftover!  Those pretty colored eggs get pushed aside in favor of peeps or chocolate bunnies, so back to the refrigerator they go!

The most popular post Easter dish people whip up after the holiday is egg salad or deviled eggs.

We eat eggs just about every day, but only make deviled eggs a couple of times a year.  You can get super creative with the filling when making deviled eggs.

Alan and I have experimented with lots of different ways to boil a perfect egg because we eat them everyday.  We’ve added vinegar, cooked older eggs, tried cooking with fresh eggs, added salt, and we’ve even baked them in the oven! They all turn out fine and they’re eatable, but not perfect.

Boiling the perfect egg has been a little science project for us. We are so goofy, that we’ll compare egg peeling stories after we crack our hard boiled egg by texting each other:

“My egg sucked! The shell peeled chunks of the egg white off, so I threw the whole thing away!”

“Oh, good one! Great batch, babe!”

“Umm…hey, babe, you know that last egg you took? Well, I don’t think it’s a hard boiled one!” Whoops!

Well, I think the science project may come to an end!  This last batch of hard boiled eggs turned out beautifully! The shell peeled nicely, the egg was a creamy yellow, no gray patches or dry yolk!

How to boil perfect eggs for these Dill Deviled Eggs!

This is how I did it. I put my six eggs on the bottom of a pot. Not on top of each other. One single layer. Cover the eggs with water until it reaches about an inch above the eggs. Cover the pot and bring it to a boil. As soon as it boils, remove the pot of eggs from the heat and let sit for 12 minutes. Drain hot water and put the eggs in a bowl of ice. Cover the eggs with more ice. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.

That is the method to my perfect hard-cooked eggs!  What works for you?

Did you know that the term “deviled” in reference to food was first used in the 19th century to describe a dish being spicy? Yeah, I learned that from Wikipedia. I find it interesting that mustard was a condiment with enough zest to be considered spicy!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I subscribed to your blog so I won’t miss your postings. I lost you in cyberland! The eggs will be a nice addition to a GF diet!

  1. Love the idea of yogurt and fresh lemon zest a lighter version of the heavy mayo laden deviled eggs. Really love that cute little serving dish as well. Did you used to have a blog on wordpress awhile ago? Looking forward to keeping in touch. Take care, BAM

    1. Hi Bam! I did have my blog on WordPress. I transferred to a self hosted site, although some of my readers didn’t transfer smoothly.

      I’ve never really liked mayo based dishes, so super thrilled the yogurt works so well with this dish. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. I hope my new found egg boiling method wasn’t a fluke and works well for you too! I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise, so substitute with Greek yogurt a lot.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s always so nice to meet new bloggers. This is a great way to use up all of Easter’s boiled eggs and I just love your blue chicken serving plate – so cute xx

    1. Hi Charlie! I had to peel myself off your blog, but I’m certain I’ll be back 🙂 I bought the dish while in Germany. One of those things I just HAD to have. ha
