Helpful Tips for Stuffed (Devil) Eggs

  1. Do not over boil the eggs. Overcooked eggs have a green coating on their yolk and trust me that will not be appealing to your guest.
  2. Use any white sharp cheddar cheese. I had some left over, so I decided to utilize that.
  3. There are endless ways to decorate your stuffed (devil) eggs, so be as creative as you would like.
  4. The butter must be at room temperature. This makes it easier to incorporate ingredients.
  5. For the mustard, it is all on preference; add ¼ tsp then mix, taste, and adjust. I tend to use ¼ tsp because I do not like too much of a ‘mustardy’ taste to my stuffed eggs.
  6. Use a decorative kit to make it a fun experience.
