One of my favorite dishes at a picnic is Deviled Eggs. I love them so much! They are perfect to pop in your mouth while dishing up your plate at the buffet table. (Don't tell me I am the only one who does that? Pop one in my mouth and add a few more to the plate!)
Deviled Eggs are quick and easy to whip up. Once I discovered that I could make the filling in a plastic bag and use that same bag to easily and quickly fill the eggs... I became quick to volunteer to bring Deviled Eggs to any party!
Begin by boiling 12 eggs. There are many who claim the secret of boiling the perfect egg. I always cover the eggs with cold water, bring to a rolling boil, remove from heat and cover for 10 minutes. Then rinse with cold water until cool to touch.
Peel your eggs. I always have at least one stubborn egg that refuses to look pretty.
Slice all your eggs in half.
Put your yolks in a large plastic bag. Roll the edges down to make it a little easier to add ingredients.
Add some pickle juice. (I have family members who don't like pickles, but they don't know I put pickle juice in these eggs! haha!)
Mayo, of course.
A little squirt of tabasco.
Mustard is next!
A little salt and pepper.
Seal the bag and begin squishing! This is the fun part! Continue squeezing until all the lumps are gone and everything has mixed well.
Press your yolk mixture to one corner of the bottom of the bag. Twist until it looks like a pastry bag tip.
Snip the end. Squeeze mixture into your egg cups.
Sprinkle with paprika.
Serve with your favorite picnic food!
12 Hard Boiled Eggs
2 Tbsp Pickle juice
3 Tbsp Mayo
2 Tbsp Mustard
A dash or two of Tabasco

Split eggs in half. Scoop out yolks and place in large plastic bag. Add pickle juice, mayo, mustard, tabasco, salt & pepper to the bag. Seal bag and squish and squeeze until lumps are gone and thoroughly combined. Push yolk mixture to one corner, twist bag to form a cone. Snip the corner and squeeze yolk mixture into egg cups. Sprinkle paprika over eggs for color.
