You might remember I said that I made a bunch of deviled eggs for the church fundraiser dinner.
I like making deviled eggs and typically have much success with it. Not so much this time.
Boiling the eggs went great. I use the Instant Pot for that and it’s great every time.
Peeling the eggs went great. Making the yolks went great. What didn’t go great…filling the eggs. I felt like I was Lucy in the I Love Lucy show where she was eating the chocolates. Nothing was going right for me.
I made the yolk mixture and put it in a ziplock bag. I clipped the corner and was going to squeeze the yolk into the whites.
UGH. I had grabbed a bag with a square bottom. Oh no! Now the hole was too big. I knew moving all of the yolk mixture to a new bag would be a nightmare so I worked the yolk mixture to one side cut a hole along the side and tried squirting it out that hole. That went okay for a bit but then I lost where the hole was, tried to move the yolk mix around, and squeezed a bunch onto my hand and the outside of the bag. Oh my word. What a mess.
I ended up having to use a scrapper. You can imagine was a problem that was!!
The eggs got finished. I didn’t say a cuss word but sure was tempted too.
So lesson of the day. If you are making deviled eggs, make sure NOT to use a square bottom stand up bag!!
