Creatively Homemade Tutorial
Over the years I have made hundreds of deviled eggs and have been frustrated by peels that pull off part of the egg white with it.  I have tried many suggestions and finally learned the trick for easy to peel hard boiled eggs.  It has to do first with how you cool the eggs and second with how you peel them.

You need to start by hard-boiling a dozen eggs.  Most people boil their eggs, but I steam the eggs.  I put 2-3 cups of water in the bottom of the pot.  Then I put all 12 eggs in the steamer pot basket along, with my color-changing egg timer.

My egg timer is red when you first put it in with the eggs (as you can see above).  The eggs are done as soon as the timer completely changes color – mine turns a deep purple.

Use a color changing egg timer for perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs every time!

Keep a close eye at the end and pull the eggs right when the timer is completely purple.  If you don’t want green around the edges of your yolk, it is important to pull your eggs out right after the yolks are completely cooked.

That’s why I use a color changing egg timer.  I get perfect results every time!

Immediately after the eggs have cooked, you want to transfer them to an ice water bath.  One trick for easy to peel hard boiled eggs is to crack them a little before you put them in the ice water.  This allows some of that cold water to seep in and help separate the shell and the egg.  Allow the eggs to completely cool in the ice water.  I leave them in there until the ice has melted completely.

When you are going to peel your egg, crack it all over.  Then roll it under your palm back and forth several times to loosen the shell before you start to peel it.  I have never had any egg whites stick to the shell since I started using this method.  Peel all 12 eggs.

Make deviled egg filling

When I was little and helping my mom make deviled egg filling, we would just use a fork to mash it up.  However, I recommend  using a food processor.  It not only speeds things up, but it ensures that the filling for this quick and easy deviled eggs recipe is smooth and lump free.

Add your mayonnaise, mustard, and sugar.  Process until it the mixture is well blended and smooth.  You may need to scrape the sides down and process again to ensure that all the ingredients got incorporated.

At this point, you can just spoon your filling into the egg white shells, sprinkle them with a dusting of paprika, and call them done.  However since I usually only ever make deviled eggs for holidays or special occasions, I take it a step further.

My secret to pretty swirled filling for this quick and easy deviled eggs recipe?  I use a Wilton decorating gun!

You might remember that I also used it to make my Meringue Ghosts for Halloween.  It seems I never use it for piping icing like it is intended to be used.  Nevertheless, my trusty Wilton decorating gun is a much used tool in my kitchen!

Anyway, I just remove the top and fill the decorating gun with the deviled egg filling.  I put a Wilton #21 Star Shaped Icing Tip into the nozzle of the gun.  That will give pretty swirls to your filling.
