Deviled Eggs and Pickled Eggs

What would Easter be without Deviled Eggs and Picked Eggs?  I love them both, especially if they are made well.  I'm sure you have all tasted things that some people make better than others.  Some you'll eat again, and others you already have your excuse ready of why you aren't eating theirs.  I would like to share my two recipes of eggs that I think are delicious!

Pickled Eggs

2 - Dozen (24) medium or large eggs
2 - Cups  of white granulated sugar
2 - Cups  of white distilled vinegar
2 - 15oz. (or close to it) cans of whole red beets
1 1/2 tsp pickling spices
1 - 4-Quart container with lid.  
Boil your eggs.    Put the eggs into a pan and fill with water to about 2 inches above the eggs.  Wait for the water to come to a complete rolling boil and start timing from THAT point on (start timing after they are boiling).   I usually time mine 7 minutes for medium eggs, 10 minutes for large eggs.
After 7 or 10 minutes, remove the eggs from the stove and run cold water into them until they are cool.   Let them sit in the cold water for about 15 more minutes and then peel them and set in the refrigerator for now.
In pot place beets, vinegar, pickling spices and sugar, bring to a boil. Pour mixture in 4-quart container and add your eggs.   Let them sit for a few days.  I've learned the longer you let them sit, the better they taste.

Deviled Eggs
  1. 6 eggs
  2. 1/2 stalk celery, finely chopped
  3. 1/4 onion, finely chopped
  4. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  5. salt to taste
  6. 1 dash hot pepper sauce
  7. paprika, for garnish
  1. Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool and peel.
  2. Cut eggs in half. Remove yolks and place in a medium bowl. Mash together with celery, onion, mayonnaise, salt and hot pepper sauce.
  3. Stuff the egg white halves with the egg yolk mixture. Sprinkle eggs with paprika. Chill covered in the refrigerator until serving.
I hope you enjoy these recipes!  Have a Tasty Tuesday!

My husband LOVES pickled eggs and he would simply die if I surprised him with this someday soon! I have never tried them myself but I think it's going to be a struggle for me to branch out- just the fact that you have made them before and gave me a recipe tells me it's time I do it for him.. in the name of love. ha!
