Deviled Eggs

The final appetizer Chris and I had during the Mad Men Season 5 Premiere with our Old Fashioneds and Martinis was my mother's delicious deviled eggs! I only made six eggs since there were just two of us, but I'll post the recipe for a dozen and a half dozen below.

You first want to start by boiling your eggs. To boil eggs perfectly, fill a pot with water, add the eggs and about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and then turn the burner to high. Once achieving a rolling boil, allow the eggs to boil for 2 minutes before turning the heat completely off. Leave the pan on the hot burner for 12-15 minutes. Finally, remove the eggs with a slotted spoon, and put them in a ice water bath. Once the eggs are cooled you can remove them from the ice water bath to a dry bowl. They can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Chris and I boiled the eggs on Friday to be used on Sunday.

To begin the hard boiled eggs you want to crack and peel your eggs. I like to rinse mine off under water to make sure there are no egg shell pieces left behind.

Cut your eggs in half.

Remove the yolks to a bowl.

Assemble your other ingredients. We need miracle whip, apple cider vinegar, yellow mustard, salt and pepper for the filling. We also need paprika to garnish. (My paprika was missing in action.)

To assemble the filling for a half dozen deviled eggs add 4 tablespoons of miracle whip.

Next add 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of mustard, 1/16 of a teaspoon of salt and a dash of pepper. I just filled my 1/8 teaspoon up half-way for the 1/16. The measurements for a dozen eggs are with the full recipe below.

Break up the yolks. Mix ingredients together until completely combined and most of the lumps are gone.

Using a small spoon (I used a teaspoon) refill the egg whites with the deviled egg mixture.

Sprinkle the tops with paprika and garnish with olives if you so desire. Serve! Chris and I did not have any deviled eggs leftover. These are addictive!

Sausage Balls

The second appetizer Chris and I had during the Mad Men premiere were my mother's sausage balls. These require minimal ingredients and are easy to make as long as you don't mind getting your hands dirty!
