Angel Eggs (aka Deviled Eggs) are sliced hard boiled eggs packed with a hearty filling.
Sweet salad cubes add flavor and a little crunch. Serve as an appetizer or side dish.
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?! 🙂
My Hard Boiled Eggs are perfect for 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 very inspired to create this recipe after eating a few for lunch. They were so good, 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
Reading a recipe is an important life skill. It starts with knowing how to read a recipe’s ingredients, follow the instructions, prep ingredients, and knowing what equipment to use.
The following tips and strategies will help beginners or experienced cooks create a delicious dish as intended in the recipe.
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 recipe. Don’t just quickly skim it. Thoroughly read from start to finish. Visualize doing each step which will help you avoid missing a step.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitutions or omit the ingredient.
My recipes are packed with helpful tips like shortcuts and serving sizes which save time and help with meal planning.
Pay attention to the order in which ingredients are prepped. For example, 1 cup of chopped pecans is not the same as pecans, chopped (measure whole pecans and then chop).
Know the assumptions. For example, when my recipe calls for “sugar,” use granulated sugar. If brown sugar is an ingredient, it will be written as such in the recipe.
Figure out the timing. Check the listed “prep time” and “total time” to be sure you have enough time to complete the recipe.
Look for hints, such as the words “meanwhile” or “at the same time,” which indicate two or more steps can happen simultaneously.
For example, my prep time doesn’t include bringing cold butter up to room temperature. Be sure to include in your timetable.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watch recipe videos. Perfect for when you’re learning a new skill or just want 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. It’s the perfect way to get organized and avoid missing an ingredient or missing a step in the instructions.
Organize your tools and kitchen equipment. Mise en place isn’t just for ingredients. Before starting, make sure you have parchment paper, aluminum foil, measuring cups, measuring spoons, the right pans, mixing bowls, and other equipment.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
