I love deviled eggs, but Z loves them even more. Before we were dating (we were just roommates!) I would make him deviled from the fresh eggs laid by my hens. They really were the best and if you have the opportunity to eat fresh local eggs over grocery store bought, please give it a try!

I’m going to share with you my basic deviled eggs recipe. There’s not much to it and I don’t think there’s any reason to get all fancy with eggs. Sometimes, I just scoop the filling onto each hard boiled egg with a spoon… or, just use a Ziploc bag to fill em!
