Notes

Pro Tip: The best way to fill a deviled egg is to Use A Piping Bag. When it comes to transferring that filling back into the egg, skip the spoon and use a piping bag and piping tip.  I promise it is a thousand times easier and a thousand times faster.  Not to mention it is so much prettier to pipe it in, than to spoon it in.

How Far In Advance Can I Make Deviled Eggs?
You can make deviled eggs 2 days ahead.  Just keep them in an airtight container in the fridge until serving time. While hard boiled eggs last about a week in the fridge, once you prepare them into deviled eggs, they only keep for a few days.
How do you center the yolk of a hard boiled egg?
To center the yolk so that when the egg is halved, the egg does not look lopsided, place the egg on its side overnight. The yolks get repositioned because they're no longer sitting up, but rather lounging sideways. I'm not too particular about the yolks being centered, but this method works well if you want them to be perfect.
How long can deviled eggs stay out on a buffet table?
Two hours is the rule for these guys.  After two hours, transfer them to the fridge.
