    Instead of spooning the egg mix by hand into the halved egg whites, I take a Ziploc sanwich bag and fill it with the yolk mixture. I try to keep it towards one bottom corner then I cut that same corner off and “pipe” the egg mix into the egg halves like you would when frosting a cake. It takes much less time, is easy clean up and makes for a nice presentation.

    Presentation is everything! Cut off from the bottom of the egg white a thin slice so that the egg does not wobble. I have a icing gun that I use to fill the eggs. It is really fast and has the decorative tips. If you vary your filling do something with the garnish to indicate what is inside. For potlucks, take devilled eggs instead of cookies. The diabetics will love you.

    I used a basic recipe for deviled eggs (just mustard, relish, tabasco, salt, pepper, and mayo) and then used the green onions/chives from this recipe as the garnish along with the paprika. SO delicious! I had never heard of using green onions before, but now I will do it every time. Thanks!
