I feel like I have shared this a million times, but I just can’t help myself from sharing it during the holidays. Deviled eggs are a staple to any holiday meal. But I see so many people asking how to boil eggs properly, or complaining that it takes too long to get the shell off.

I promise you my method works. Try it! Not to mention the fact that they taste incredible.


What you will need: 

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • paprika

How to get the PERFECT boiled egg:

  • Put the eggs in a pot BEFORE boiling water
  • Cover the eggs in COLD water, by one inch
  • Bring to a ROLLING BOIL
  • Once it begins to boil, IMMEDIATELY remove from heat and cover
  • Set a timer to EXACTLY 13 minutes and leave them covered
  • After the timer goes off, uncover and move pot to the sink, LEAVING THE HOT WATER
  • One by one, scoop out the eggs and make a SMALL crack in each (as if you were going to peel it) and RETURN IT TO THE POT
  • Run cold water into the pot until it runs all the hot water out
  • Time to peel! The shell should come right off.
  • Rinse the eggs off
  • Cut in half and carefully scrape yolks into a small mixing bowl and break them up

Make the filling:

  • Add the mayonnaise, honey mustard, and sugar to the yolks and mix well
  • Mix in the salt and pepper to taste (I leave out the salt)
  • Put the mixture into a ziploc bag and cut the tip off one corner
  • Use ziploc bag to fill eggs with mixture and sprinkle with paprika
  • Chill for at least 30 minutes

When I say this recipe is the perfect recipe, I mean this recipe is the perfect recipe. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
