Deviled Eggs are nothing but ordinary hard boiled eggs with a little ‘makeup’. Simply cut the boiled eggs length-wise, scoop out the yolk, mash it, get creative and add various other ingredients to it. Finally, spoon the mixture back into egg white halves. And you are done. Actually, you have options of adding any ingredient to the mashed egg yolk. It’s entirely upto you. So, now, even if I’m having boiled eggs regularly, it’s still different.
These hard boiled eggs with ‘makeup’ can be your quick high-protein breakfast. Like grab and go. And the best part is, you can have it prepared at night and store it in the fridge to use the next morning. I have even stored these in the refrigerator for 2 days (saves me from boiling the eggs in the morning; imagine my laziness), they stay just fine. Actually I find the taste better when they are served chilled.
