    Dressed egg? This I've never heard of. What, do you put tiny dresses and suits on them? Ok, I'm trying to be funny. I admit it. Gotta get folks to laugh around here. But seriously, I have never heard of dressed eggs. Are they like Deviled eggs?

    So sorry, I guess my country girl is showing... yes deviled eggs. We call them dressed eggs here. If I said deviled eggs to anyone they would look at me like [​IMG]
    "Oh... (speaking to a sibling) I'll bring deviled eggs for the pot luck." She would probably start rolling on the floor.​

    I don't really have a recipe. [​IMG] But I can tell you what I put in mine. I start with about 1 1/2 dozen, using all the yolks, but usually have to toss some of the white because they didn't peel nice. I add Hellman's Mayo (Best Foods on the west coast) about, oh say 1/2 cup, then mash the yolks. I add about a tablespoon of good yellow mustard, about a 1/2 tsp. of a good spicy mustard, salt, pepper, season salt, and a good amount of paprika.

    They come out thick with a good amount of zip.
    Hope this helps a bit, lol. I never measure when I make mine, I just give a dollop here and a pinch there, you know?

    Ah. Thanks. Gotta love regional Semantics. I just moved to La last year. This sweet older lady was talking about her creamed potatoes. I said I'd never heard of creamed potatoes (I got a reeealy strange look from her), are they like creamed corn? She laughed, no y'all probably call them mashed potatoes. duh.
    Anyway, when I make Deviled/Dressed Eggs, I just mash the hard boiled egg yolk, add mayo, tad bit of yellow mustard, s&p, and a bit of sweet relish. My daughter adds dill but we don't care for dill in anything. I just mix it all till it tastes right and put it back in the boiled egg white.

    1 foil packet of baby shrimp (you could use fresh I guess)
    12 eggs boiled & peeled
    1/4 cup mayo
    1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning

    Sliced eggs in half, remove yolk and place in a bowl. Mash yolks with a fork. Drain packet of shrimp & add to yolks. Mix in mayo & Old Bay. Spoon back into whites. You can sprinkle with a bit more Old Bay or paprika if you want

    I like to put the mashed yolk mixture into a baggie, snip the corner, and squirt thr egg whites full again. Makes pretty swirly patterns if you do it right. A baggie is a redneck pastry bag, dontcha know...

    Elton Brown on the show Good Eats on Food Network would call it a multitasker, LOL.

    I love baggies for things like that. I have pastry bags for icing cakes, and they are a royal pain in the butt to get clean.

    I don't measure anything, just do it to taste. I mash up all the yolks then add: Mayo, Grey Poupon mustard (or similar), and white vinegar. You don't need lots of vinegar, just enough to give it a kick. I do the "redneck" baggie thing as well to pipe in the yolk, then top with paprika. Sorry there's no measurements. I've ordered the ingredients from what I use most of to least if that helps any. A lot of my cooking is done this way. You can thank my grandma for that!

    Coyote,

    That's got to be the most unique recipe I've ever seen for that!
