The Test Kitchen has already developed a few deviled egg recipes, including pimento cheese deviled eggs and “green devils” with avocado, but in my opinion you can never have enough deviled egg recipes in rotation. And you’ll definitely want to add these tangy, delicious dill pickle deviled eggs to the mix.

While deviled eggs are an especially festive addition to any Easter table, they are a delicious, handheld appetizer you can serve anytime of year – at summer cookouts or even holiday parties.  And the best part? They’re super easy to make, especially if your kitchen is equipped with a few handy Hamilton Beach® appliances.

Since the recipe calls for a dozen hard-boiled eggs, I plugged in my Hamilton Beach® Egg Cooker. It perfectly hard-boiled eggs each and every time. And the Egg Cooker allows me to keep the stove off – which is especially appreciated this time of the year when the AC is working overtime.

Once the eggs are cooked, peel them and cut them lengthwise. Then remove the egg yolks, leaving the whites for filling.

Use your Hamilton Beach® food processor (another appliance that’s especially helpful when making deviled eggs) fitted with the chopping/mixing blade, process the egg yolks, mayo, pickles, mustard, salt and pepper until smooth.

Pipe the yolk mixture into each egg white half. You can use a piping bag, or my personal DIY favorite – a plastic bag with one of the corner edges cut off.

 

Garnish these dill pickle deviled eggs with even more pickles (we found that slicing baby dills will give you the perfect size for a garnish), fresh dill, and a sprinkle of paprika.

Whether your neighbours are piling them on their Labor Day cookout plates or your gameday houseguests are enjoying them alongside buffalo chicken dip and wings, these dill pickle deviled eggs make an egg-cellent appetizer recipe year round.

Whether you want soft, medium, hard, or even poached eggs – the work is done for you.

If you’re not planning an Easter feast, the Egg Cooker is a great tool for meal prep any time of year. I hard boil 6 eggs over the weekend and store them in the refrigerator to throw into salads, peel for a quick protein-packed snack or for a no-brainer breakfast during the week. Now that the Egg Cooker has erased the hassle from boiling eggs, you’ll find excuses to use it over and over again.

Classic deviled eggs are great, but how about adding avocado for a twist on a classic?

Avocado Deviled Eggs

We used the Egg Cooker to cook our eggs, but you could certainly hard boil them in a pot on the stove. Once the eggs are cooked, peel them, cut them in half and remove the yolks.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Using the food processor chopping/mixing blade, process eggs yolks, avocados, cilantro, mayonnaise, pepper and cumin until the mixture is smooth. Pipe or spoon the mixture into each egg white half.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Top each Avocado Deviled Egg -or Green Devil as they are sometimes called- with salsa and a sprig of cilantro. The salsa complements the avocado in the eggs, and adds a burst of red to this already colourful dish. Put these on the table for brunch or as an appetizer and wow your guests with a creamy, flavourful take on deviled eggs.

Classic Potato Salad with Variations from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

The ultimate picnic side, potato salad is everywhere come spring and summer. There are plenty of bbq’s, potlucks or parties, so by Labor Day, you’re sure to have tried at least ten iterations of the dish. The fact that everyone makes potato salad a little differently is what inspired the recipe for potato salad we’re sharing with you today. Pat, Laurie and I started talking about how we each make potato salad at home, and while many of our ingredients overlapped, some of them elicited responses of surprise or sheer shock. Okay, so no one was actually shocked, but there were a lot of “You put what in there?” comments thrown around, which made for no lack of laughter in the test kitchen that day.

Classic Potato Salad with Variations from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

In the end, we decided to share the basic recipe with a smattering of optional ingredients so you can customize the potato salad to your liking. We think the basic recipe is delicious on its own, and we love adding our own twist to it, too. We recommend starting with the base recipe and adding your preferred additions to taste. Here are our favorite add-ins:

Pat: “I love adding zip and zing to my potato salad with pickle relish (usually dill, but sweet relish is good too), mustard, lemon juice and onions. Sometimes I’ll add a sprinkling of sugar to the dressing to create a sweet and sour effect.”

Laurie: “My potato salad isn’t complete without hard-boiled egg, parsley and celery. I would omit the relish and stick to the basics. I go with the ‘simpler is better’ method when it comes to potato salad.”

Kristel: “I like to add mustard seed, celery seed, vinegar, chives and plenty of salt to my potato salad, and I don’t usually include eggs. Often, I substitute red potatoes for the traditional white potatoes and add a bit of sour cream to lighten everything up a bit.”

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

Deviled eggs are an Easter must-have, and they’ll be showing up on every potluck, brunch, shower and cookout table through Labor Day. Classic deviled eggs are a no-fail favorite, but if you’re looking to jazz up the basics this year, we have just the recipe for you.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

Pimento cheese has been on our minds lately and it’s good in just about everything. Deviled eggs are no exception. In the South, it’s not surprising to see this delicious spread mixed into egg yolks for a cheesy twist on the standard deviled egg.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

The most common questions we get asked about making deviled eggs are these: What is the best way to cook hard boiled eggs? and What is the best way to peel hard boiled eggs? Well, we like to save time (and our sanity) by using the Egg Cooker. It takes less time than cooking eggs on the stove and they peel easily every time. This gadget has quickly become one of my home’s favorites.

After preparing your eggs, add the pre-made pimento cheese spread to the yolks and give it a good stir or a couple rounds with a hand mixer to make sure all the ingredients are well-combined. Pipe or spoon the filling into the egg white halves and top each deviled egg with a small slice of juicy bacon. It’s the perfect bite of savory, cheesy goodness, and it’s sure to be a hit at your next get-together.
