Karen’s Stuffed Eggs

Platter of stuffed eggs

A Baker’s Dozen (13) makes 24 stuffed eggs

I know what you’re thinking. “There’s something wrong with Karen’s math here.” Not at all–that’s a stuffed egg trick my sister taught me. Just READ ON!

If you’ve ever made stuffed eggs, then you know how easy it is to run out of filling before the last egg is stuffed. My sister taught me the trick to cook an extra egg adding it to the filling. Now, I never seem to run low on filling.

My recipe runs pretty true to traditional stuffed eggs with a few key exceptions.  I substitute a little horseradish mustard for some of the plain yellow mustard. I also use Famous Dave’s Spicy Pickle relish or spears (chopped) instead of regular sweet relish, and instead of the standard paprika garnish, I use Cajun seasoning for the garnish (my favorite store bought is “Slap ya Mama”)

Here’s a tip about peeling boiled eggs: Fresh eggs are harder to peel, so I try to think ahead and buy my eggs about a week before making stuffed eggs. No worries if your eggs are fresh, just allow more time for the peeling.

Now you know all my secrets for fantastic Stuffed Eggs–and just in time for Mother’s Day lunch or brunch.

Wishing all mother’s a very Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Cover eggs in a boiler with cold water. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove, drain, and continuously run cold water over eggs until water and boiler are no longer warm. Drain water from eggs. Toss eggs in bottom of boiler until cracked thoroughly. Peel eggs under running water and place on paper towels to dry.
  • Slice eggs in half. Using a spoon, scoop out yolk into your mixing boil or food processor. Add 1 whole boiled egg to the filling leaving you with 24 halves for stuffing.
  • Add all other ingredients and process, beat with a heavy duty electric mixer, or stir by hand. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Divide filling between egg halves, arrange on a platter, and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning or paprika.
