Deviled eggs recipe?
I know I can alway count on ya'll for help! Does anyone have a tried and true deviled egg recipe? I was assigned to make them for a pot luck I am going to on Easter. I can honestly say this is one thing I have never made. I love them but have never made them! I've searched online but have found about a million different recipe. After my search I am more confused than ever.

Thanks in advance!!!

I make a simple recipe, but everyone loves them.

I boil the eggs (not too fresh or they won't peel) for 15 minutes, and then run them under cold water. Peel them, slice in half and put the yolks in a food processor.

Now's the part where I don't really have amounts. I add mayonaisse until they're the right consistency and taste, then add a bit of dry mustard--again to taste.

Put the goop into a plastic bag and cut the corner and squeeze it into the egg halves. Sprinkle with a tiny bit of paprika if you like.

Essentially I do the same - only I use prepared mustard and add it before the mayo.

If I want to get fancy - I may season with a touch of curry powder and/or use curry powder in place of the paprika

for the perfect boiled eggs, bring the water to a boil. lower add the eggs and lower to a simmer. cover for 20min.
cut the eggs in half and take out the yolks. mix the yolks with some mayo, a touch of mustard, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of sugar - to taste. i just add a bit at a time and keep tasting.
then put the yolk mixture in the white halves and spinkle with paprika.

I put a dash of vinegar in mine instead of the mustard. Also if you want the yolks in the middle of the whites. Snap a rubber band on the egg carton and tilt it on it's side in the fridge for a day or so.

Deviled eggs are one of my favorite things to make and eat!

Like most people already mentioned, I mix mayo, mustard, salt and pepper into my concoction. One thing that I do different from everyone else is add a bit (a large spoon full) of dill pickle juice to mine. It gives the eggs a nice flavor along with making them creamier.

i do the mustard mayo and a dash of white vinegar-it adds a nice tangy flavor to it, oh and to make them look prettier sprinkle paprika on them it doesnt really affect the flavor at all (imo)

Guess there aren't too many wild variations on deviled eggs! I use mayo, salt, pepper and sweet salad cubes. I also use the spanish paprika to make 'em pretty!

oh, there are plenty of crazy variations - most of them just aren't worth the trouble. though adding some cream cheese, horseradish and bacon is good;
and another variation with diced chicken, raisens and curry powder.

Someone once told me - anything you'd put in an omelet you can put into deviled eggs.

What are sweet salad cubes? This is a new term for me.
