I've been making this deviled egg recipe for many years. It is actually an adaption & refining process that my husband & I came up with together from an old recipe on the Emeril Lagasse cooking show.
These are great as appetizers, a side dish or even a main protein with a big salad. They are really easy to whip up & even easier to eat up.
My fail proof method of boiling eggs always keeps them in perfect condition when peeling. Place cold eggs in a large pot of cold water. Place the pot on the stove & bring to a boil. Let boil rapidly for 2 minutes, then turn the heat completely off but don't move the pan. Set a timer for 15 minutes. When the timer is done, immediately pour out as much water as you can without disturbing the eggs too much. Begin gently heaping large amounts of ice into the pan until the ice is no longer melting rapidly, then let the ice sit on top of the eggs for another 15 minutes before peeling.
