Fancy Deviled Eggs

Famous for their "sinfully rich" savory filling, these rich little goodies will make you the hit of summer gatherings.

Perfect for cook-outs, bridal and baby showers, these are sure to please.

Humble beginnings

Mayo, Yellow Mustard, Sweet Relish

Lawry's Seasoning Salt and other essential herbs/seasonings.
(not pictured, optional paprika and dill weed for garnish)

These secret weapons will help your deviled eggs to have a beautiful presentation. You do not have to use these exact items. You may be able to find like ones in your kitchen tool arsenal.

Crinkle Cutter, for enhancing fancy presentation.

Easy Accent Decorator for piping filling into eggs. You could also use a plastic bag with the one of the corners cut.

I ended up rigging up a combo of plastic bag with my decorator because the ring is BROKEN! grrr. My professional pastry bag with tips is M.I.A. *tear*

Thin Mesh strainer of some kind. I used the mesh portion of my sugar shaker.

Place eggs in pot. Add water. Add a pinch of salt and a dash of vinegar to prevent major eggshell cracks.

Delicate Yolks pressed through the mesh make this a lump-free filling.

Garlic Powder

Ground Black Pepper (fresh cracked would taste better)

Ground Cumin

Celery Seed (don't go overboard with this stuff!)

Mix well.

Add sweet relish and other wet ingredients. Mix well.

Empties on a platter

Empties refilled

Garnished with Paprika and dried Dill Weed
