This deviled egg recipe for kids is one my son and I put together to use the eggs leftover from our Cool Science Experiments for Kids- Making Spider Web Eggs post. We had to try to decide what to do with the leftover eggs that we would both enjoy eating. Just what to do with them really didn’t take much thought. Here in the south deviled eggs are super popular. Putting together a deviled egg recipe for kids that my kid would like was a little more challenging.
The deviled egg recipe that seemed to pop up most often had mayonnaise, vinegar, and mustard. My son likes a little bit of mayonnaise, but vinegar and mustard are not favorites of his. The traditional deviled egg recipe also has paprika. Paprika would be too spicy for his taste buds.
I found dozens of variations of the traditional deviled egg recipe. Some looked like they might go over with my son and others sounded too bold for his taste.
Finally I came across a deviled egg recipe that replaced the vinegar, mayo and mustard with ranch dressing. That sounded much more kid friendly to me. When we looked didn’t have ranch dressing in the fridge, but we did have Caesar dressing. My son loves to have it on salads. I decided we would have to try it in our deviled egg recipe.
How did we put our deviled egg recipe for kids together:
We started by cutting our hard boiled eggs in half.
Then we cleaned the yolks out of the white section of the egg. My son decided that old baby spoons did the best job of getting all of the yolk out of the egg. He was right! They really did a great job.
The yolks were them mashed up with a fork. Mashing turned out to be a great job for my son to do. He thoroughly mashed the egg. I bet the children in your life will too.
We added the Caesar dressing a few dabs at a time to the mashed eggs and blended the mixtures. I was worried that we would end up with a runny mess if the dressing was added all at one time.
When the mixture was thoroughly blended, it was spooned into the eggs. Our deviled egg recipe created a mixture that was fairly thick, but not runny. It was really easy to move into the eggs.
I decided to make the eggs look pretty by sprinkling a little Italian seasoning on top of the eggs. My son didn’t think that was a good idea. He questioned what it would taste like and if it would change our deviled egg recipe.
I love the Italian seasoning, but we many leave it off next time. Not all kids are open to trying new spices and my son seems to be one of them.
Here are the ingredients for our deviled egg recipe:
Six hard boiled eggs
Italian seasoning (optional)
