Tips and tricks for how to make devilled eggs

  • The fresher the eggs, the more difficult they are to peel, so choose the slightly older eggs in your refrigerator.
  • To prevent a dark green ring from forming around the yolks, cool the eggs rapidly in running cold water as soon as they’re finished cooking.
  • After draining and cooling eggs, gently crack them all over and keep them soaking in cold water, then start peeling from the large end.
  • For smooth, clean edges, use a sharp knife to cut eggs in half. Avoid serrated knives.
  • Use a whisk to mash yolks or put them through a sieve to keep them light and velvety. A piping bag fitted with a star tip will give your yolks a swirly, elegant finish.
