Ever since I was a kid, my favorite food to eat at Thanksgiving has been deviled eggs. I first learned how to make them in elementary school, and since then they have been a staple on the dinner table for my family on Thanksgiving Day. Most of the time they don't even make it to the dinner table because my brother and I sneak too many out of the fridge. My mom practically has to guard the fridge to keep us away from it.

Over the years, I have made a few changes to my original recipe, and have discovered what I believe to be the best deviled eggs recipe ever. I want to share it with you, so that you can enjoy them with your family as well.

Here's what you need:

  • A dozen eggs
  • Mayonnaise
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Hot Sauce (I use Franks, but you can use whatever you prefer)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Paprika

First, you have to boils your eggs. Put them in a pot, and add enough cold water to cover the eggs. Bring to a boil & cook for 12 minutes.

Once they are done boiling, place them in cold water to stop the cooking.  Once they're cooled, peel the eggs, slice in half, and put the cooked yolks in a bowl and mash em' all together. I've found that a fork works best for this job. Place the egg whites to the side for later.

Now, it's time to add all of the other ingredients. After your egg yolks are smashed, add 4 tablespoons of Mayo, 1 1/2 tablespoons of yellow mustard, 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, a couple drops of hot sauce, and a smidgen of salt & pepper.

Stir all of the ingredients together. Feel free to add a little more of what you think it needs to accommodate your tastes.Use a spoon to scoop your mixture into the egg white halves. I like to be generous with the yolk mixture during this step.

After all of your halves are filled, it's time to add the paprika. Just sprinkle a small amount on each deviled egg and voilà, you're done. Enjoy!
