Recipe: Deviled eggs

I like cooking to require very few ingredients, yet also be delicious.  Sometimes the trade-off is that it’s complicated to cook.  Not so with deviled eggs.  It’s almost not even a recipe because it’s so simple.

Deviled Eggs

  • 5 boiled eggs
  • 4 bread-and-butter pickle chips (I use Trader Joe’s because it lasts a really long time and is relatively inexpensive)
  • mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

Peel and cut eggs in half lengthwise.  Add egg yolks to a small bowl with chopped up pickle chips, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Add mayo and mash until creamy.  Fill egg whites with mixture.

That’s it!  You must use bread-and-butter pickles for this, though – I have tried other kinds and they do not taste right.  If you made the bread-and-butter pickles from scratch you’d need more ingredients, and they wouldn’t last as long as TJ’s.  (If you are so inclined, this pickle recipe seems like a recipe I would try.)
