Trisha Yearwood's Deviled Egg Recipe + Kelsea Ballerini's Smoky Eyes

I hear Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are having lots of fun together and they’ll be spending at least one holiday with each other. It might be Thanksgiving as they're both stuck in L.A. doing something for The Voice.

Thanksgiving for Trisha Yearwood means her grandma's cornbread dressing with hard-boiled eggs in it. Trisha just bought cans of cranberry sauce and said,” I make cranberry relish for the family, but I still love the canned stuff; it must be a childhood thing!” The day after the holiday, Trisha always makes deviled eggs two ways; one kind for her and one for Garth. Hers has to be sweet and his has to have lots of mustard.

Carrie Underwood says mustard should be a food group because she puts it on almost everything.

Kelsea Ballerini gets makeup tips from YouTube and her most recent was how to do smoky eyes.

Finally – Michael Ray can’t wait for Thanksgiving tomorrow to eat his grandma’s Chocolate Dump Cake with layers of chocolate pudding, Cool Whip and crushed up Heath bars.

His and Hers Deviled Eggs:
Note from Trisha: Super fresh eggs aren’t best for boiling. They tend to be harder to peel. So for deviled eggs, I use eggs that are nearing the sell-by date on the carton.
His Filling:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp. yellow mustard
1 Tbsp. butter, softened
Salt and pepper to taste
Garnish: paprika
Her filling:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish
1 tsp. yellow mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring eggs to a boil in medium saucepan with water to cover. Remove from heat, cover and let stand 20 minutes. Drain saucepan; refill with cold water. Crack eggshells; let stand in cold water 5 minutes. Peel eggs, cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Halve eggs lengthwise. Carefully remove yolks; set aside in a small bowl. Mash yolks with a fork; stir in filling ingredients of choice. Season with salt and pepper. Fill each egg-white half with a small scoop of yolk mixture. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired.
Makes: 24 egg halves
