Learning How to Make Your Own Deviled Egg Carrier in Five Minutes is the best five minutes you can spend today. So, tell me I’m not the only one who has had a bad experience trying to transport deviled eggs without a real deviled egg tray. Those little eggs are just so slippery, they always end up sliding into each other and getting all messed up.
It basically makes me avoid making them very often even though they are perfect for potlucks and parties and I have a super yummy Classic Deviled Egg Recipe that I love.
Basically, even though I love deviled eggs, I only make them about twice a year because I just can’t bring myself to purchase a real deviled egg carrier, not only because I’m cheap, but because I don’t want to store it the other 363 days of the year that I’m not using it.
I’ve finally found the answer, thanks to some GENIUS at my last church pot-luck.
I was on the clean up crew and when I was clearing the last of the left behinds off the serving table, I saw a lone deviled egg sitting on a very clever handmade carrier.
My mind was kind of blown. It was so simple, duh why hadn’t I ever thought of just putting the egg cartons is a 9×13 pan and covering them with foil. GENIUS!!!
I made some deviled eggs the other day and threw together a homemade disposable deviled egg tray to transport them with. It only took me five minutes to make the tray and it made transporting the deviled eggs soooo much easier.
Do yourself a favor, if you don’t have a special deviled egg tray, and keep this little how-to stored in the back of your mind or on one of your Pinterest boards, so you can use it on those two days a year when you have need for it.
Who knows, now that I know this little trick up my sleeve I might even make deviled eggs more than twice a year.
What you need to make a Deviled Egg Carrier:
- 2 empty egg cartons
1 9×13 pan, I like to use the disposable so I don’t have to worry about remembering my pan when I leave.
Directions: (see pictures below)
- Cut the lid off the egg cartons, keep the part that the eggs sit in
- Trim about an inch off of both ends so they can fit side by side in the bottom of the 9×13 pan.
- Turn the egg cartons upside down and put them in the 9×13 pan, if needed trim edges a little more to get them to fit.
- Cover them with a layer of foil, pressing down so you can see the indents where you will put the finished eggs.
- Place finished eggs in indents, and then cover with more foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to transport or serve.
That’s it. So simple and a great way to get your yummy eggs where you want them.
