There are many kinds of kimchi, but here I like to use the popular cabbage kimchi known as baechu kimchi.

You can find kimchi in the refrigerated section of most well-stocked grocery stores, though if you have an Asian market nearby, you will be stunned by the array of different kimchi options available there.

With just a few simple tips and tricks, you can transform your deviled eggs into showstoppers.
Learn how to make perfect deviled eggs every time with this easy-to-follow guide!

  1. How to Perfectly Boil the Eggs.

    To make perfectly hard-boiled eggs, place the eggs in a pot, making sure not to stack them.
    Fill the pan with cold water until it covers the eggs by at least one inch.
    Put the pot on a burner, turn up the heat to medium-high.

    In the first few minutes, every now and then give the eggs a stir in a circular motion, this may help centre the yolks and wait for the water to come to a rolling boil.

    Once boiling, reduce heat to low and set your timer for 12 minutes.

    When done, strain off the boiling water, replace with cold water straight away, and allow to cool before peeling.

  2. Tips for Perfect Filling and Garnishes.

    Start your deviled eggs off right by perfecting your egg yolk filling.
    To make a basic filling, mix 2 parts mayonnaise with 1 part mustard.
    Be sure to add in a bit of salt and pepper for flavour.

    If you want to get creative with your mix, opt for ingredients like fresh herbs, olive oil, pickles, garlic or olives.
    For garnishes sprinkle a little bit of paprika over the top or use roasted vegetables or herbs to create even more eye-catching looks.

  3. Easy Ways to Make Deviled Eggs Look Awesome.

    Deviled eggs can easily be dressed up to look stunning.
    Start by wrapping a thin strip of bacon around the middle of each egg, then sprinkle with smoked paprika.

    Another option is to add small vegetable pieces like peppers, tomatoes or chives on top for an added blast of flavour and bright colours.
    Or try using different colour sauces such as hot sauce or sriracha mayonnaise to add even more visual appeal.

    Finally, garnish the eggs with a sprinkle of fresh herbs, chopped olives or crispy croutons to make them really stand out!

  4. Sprinkle with Healthy Ingredients for a Nutritious Fix

    To turn your deviled eggs into a nutritious fix, sprinkle them with healthy toppings like shredded cheese or nuts, diced capsicum/bell peppers or onions, cucumbers and avocados.
