Classic Potato Salad with Variations from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

The ultimate picnic side, potato salad is everywhere come spring and summer. There are plenty of cookouts, potlucks or parties, so by Labor Day, you’re sure to have tried at least ten iterations of the dish. The fact that everyone makes potato salad a little differently is what inspired the recipe for potato salad we’re sharing with you today. Pat, Laurie and I started talking about how we each make potato salad at home, and while many of our ingredients overlapped, some of them elicited responses of surprise or sheer shock. Okay, so no one was actually shocked, but there were a lot of “You put what in there?” comments thrown around, which made for no lack of laughter in the test kitchen that day.

In the end, we decided to share the basic recipe with a smattering of optional ingredients so you can customize the potato salad to your liking. We think the basic recipe is delicious on its own, and we love adding our own twist to it, too. We recommend starting with the base recipe and adding your preferred additions to taste. Here are our favorite add-ins:

Pat: “I love adding zip and zing to my potato salad with pickle relish (usually dill, but sweet relish is good too), mustard, lemon juice and onions. Sometimes I’ll add a sprinkling of sugar to the dressing to create a sweet and sour effect.”

Laurie: “My potato salad isn’t complete without hard-boiled egg, parsley and celery. I would omit the relish and stick to the basics. I go with the ‘simpler is better’ method when it comes to potato salad.”

Kristel: “I like to add mustard seed, celery seed, vinegar, chives and plenty of salt to my potato salad, and I don’t usually include eggs. Often, I substitute red potatoes for the traditional white potatoes and add a bit of sour cream to lighten everything up a bit.”

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

Deviled eggs are an Easter must-have, and they’ll be showing up on every potluck, brunch, shower and cookout table through Labor Day. Classic deviled eggs are a no-fail favorite, but if you’re looking to jazz up the basics this year, we have just the recipe for you.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

Pimento cheese has been on our minds lately, and we shared our favorite recipe with you Monday. We stand by what we said then: pimento cheese is good in just about everything. Deviled eggs are no exception. In the South, it’s not surprising to see this delicious spread mixed into egg yolks for a cheesy twist on the standard deviled egg.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

The most common questions we get asked about making deviled eggs are these: What is the best way to cook hard boiled eggs? and What is the best way to peel hard boiled eggs? Well, we like to save time (and our sanity) by using the Egg Cooker. It takes less time than cooking eggs on the stove and they peel easily every time. This gadget has quickly become one of my home’s favorites.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog by @hamiltonbeach

After preparing your eggs, add the pre-made pimento cheese spread to the yolks and give it a good stir or a couple rounds with a hand mixer to make sure all the ingredients are well-combined. Pipe or spoon the filling into the egg white halves and top each deviled egg with a small slice of juicy bacon. It’s the perfect bite of savory, cheesy goodness, and it’s sure to be a hit at your next get-together.

The best Mother's Day Brunch (or any brunch!) includes Eggs Benedict with homemade Hollondaise sauce. Everyday Good Thinking | @hamiltonbeach

I love Eggs Benedict and order it at brunch all the time. I never, ever made it at home. To me, it was stuffy and labor intensive. Not to mention I had to poach eggs, which is the equivalent of retaking the SAT’s (they were hard for me). And whisking up a Hollandaise Sauce can be on the complicated side. Two products have made this seemingly elaborate brunch staple easy, easy, easy. Our new Egg Cooker will poach eggs to perfection while you toast the english muffins. No boiling water, adding vinegar, swirling or stirring needed. As for the sauce, our Single Serve Blender allows you to put in all the ingredients, pulse a few times and have the creamy, buttery decadence that IS Hollandaise sauce. We served it with fruit-infused sparkling water (made, of course, with our handheld SodaStation™) and roasted asparagus, which is just as easy to prepare as the Eggs Benedict. Trust me, try it at home (maybe for Mother’s Day?) and you will be amazed by the simplicity.

Deviled eggs are the edible centerpiece to every party. Popular at summer cookouts, winter holiday parties, and of course, Easter when hard-boiled eggs are so abundant, deviled eggs are a sure bet on the appetizer table. They’re widely considered to be the greatest thing since sliced bread – but in truth, they’ve been around since well before the automatic bread slicer.Classic Deviled Eggs | Everyday Good Thinking - @hamiltonbeachI know people with special deviled egg platters with little oval divots for snugly fitting the yolky baskets. Okay, I own one, too. Many swear by a special technique, passed down for generations, for cooking perfect hard-boiled eggs. And let’s not forget the seemingly unlimited variety of add-ins and flavors you can include to make your recipe truly stand out from the flock. We’ve seen deviled eggs with lobster, shrimp, sausage, cheese, and – of course – bacon. There’s hot sauce, olives, relish and jalapeño, too. You can experiment with whatever ingredients you like until you develop a recipe your friends and family will require you to make for every party until the chickens stop laying eggs.Classic Deviled Eggs | Everyday Good Thinking - @hamiltonbeach

We used our Egg Cooker and Stack & Snap Food Processor to refine our classic deviled egg recipe. In order for you to get started perfecting your own, you’ll need to know the basics.
