A big thank you to Mt. Olive for providing the sweet salad cubes used in this recipe.
Since this is my favorite brand, I asked for complimentary jars of pickles. The company promptly shipped several jars. How cool is that?! 🙂
HARD BOILED EGGS
Use my Hard Boiled Eggs to make this recipe.
1. Eggs do not absorb salt while boiling. Salt helps hard-boiled eggs peel easier.
2. Read Southern Living‘s article about peeling eggs.
3. Read Cooking Light‘s article about boiling eggs.
I was inspired to create this recipe after enjoying a few for lunch. They were so good, that I had to share!
Easy to make with a few simple ingredients you very likely have in your pantry.
Serve Angel Eggs on lettuce leaves or Ritz crackers to make a lovely presentation.
Make ahead and store prepared eggs in a tightly sealed container. Refrigerate up to two days before serving.
I’ve never refrigerated longer than two days. If you have, please share your experience in a comment. I would love to know.

This recipe is famously known as Deviled Eggs. My precious aunt suggested using the name Angel Eggs. I agreed! It’s keeping heaven (not the devil) in all business and food related details. Allows blessings to flow. Spiritual food for thought.
How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a video tutorial is great way to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists.
Written notes will serve as a handy reference the next time you make this recipe.
