6 hard boiled eggs
Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
Lawry's Season Salt
Paprika [for garnish]
Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place into a medium mixing bowl. Place the egg whites on serving dish.
Using a fork or dough blender, mash the egg yolks until they become finely crumbled.
Add one heaping spoonful of Miracle Whip [or mayo if you prefer], and add equal parts yellow mustard. Mix well. [TIP: I typically do equal parts egg yolk, Miracle Whip, and yellow mustard, and then adjust based on taste.]
Once mixed, add Lawry's Season Salt to taste. I tend to use quite a bit [I basically coat the entire top of the mixture with the salt], but if you like the flavor without it, a pinch should do just fine. Mix well.
Using a frosting bag, fill the hollowed egg whites with the yolk mixture. [TIP: We don't have a frosting bag, so we put the yolk mixture into a ziplock bag and cut off one corner.]
Sprinkle paprika over the top and serve!
The problem with my recipe is that I completely eyeball the ingredients & taste test until the flavors are just right. If you want something more structured, check out these recipes.
Also, a few years ago, my mom got me an Egg Genie for Christmas. It seems silly, but makes PERFECT eggs every time.
What's your go-to party dish??
