Last year I wrote about how making cinnamon rolls was a family tradition with my mom’s side of the family.  Another tradition I have always taken part in on Thanksgiving and Christmas is making deviled eggs.  According to my grandma, I have been making these eggs with her and my Aunt Beverly since I was around five.  It is something I look forward to every year and take very seriously!  Just ask Ben!  Here is the process. 

First boil some eggs, let them cool and then peel them.November 004

Next, very carefully slice the eggs in half and remove yolks into a separate bowl.

Mash the yolks up really good!  Add mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and sweet pickle juice until you reach desired consistency.  You just have to use your judgment here, years of experience make a difference!

Finally, scoop mixture in boiled egg whites and sprinkle with paprika.  These are really best if made the day you will be serving them!

Last, eat and enjoy time with family!
