It's that time of year! The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the NFL, first played on January 15, 1967. Super Bowl parties have been part of the tradition. Typically, finger food type snacks like chicken wings and chips with dip are served at these parties. Super Bowl XLIX will be played on February 1, 2015. We are hosting our annual Super Bowl party, expecting about 20 guests so preparations are underway.
My husband requested the deviled eggs. I put out a tray for game day last week and they last all of about two minutes. They were a huge hit!
Deviled eggs are inexpensive and easy to make. The only problem with making deviled eggs is peeling. The fresher the eggs are, the harder they are to peel with the shell pulling off chucks of the egg white. The reason being, fresh eggs are more acidic than older eggs so the shell sticks. The good news is you know your eggs were fresh. The bad news is, the resulting peeled eggs are aesthetically unappealing for deviled eggs. The easiest way to get perfectly peeled eggs with no sticking is to add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the water when cooking the eggs. Baking soda will reduce the acidity of the eggs so the shell doesn't stick.
