Deviled Eggs

Total Time:

12 deviled eggs


Place the eggs in a medium saucepan with water to cover and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover the pan, and let stand for 20 minutes. Pour off the hot water and refill the saucepan with cold water. Crack the eggshells all over and let them sit in the cold water for 5 minutes. Peel the eggs, cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

Halve the eggs lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks and transfer them to a small bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork, then stir in the mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish and yellow mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Scoop a spoonful of the mixture into each egg white half. Sprinkle the tops with paprika.

Cook's Note: With this method for hard boiling eggs, you won't have any green in your yolk!

    I make mine the same way ,so did my Mother, but where can I buy that deviled egg plate.I love it
    Not a fan of pickle relish in deviled eggs. I substituted apple cider vinegar and it gives the eggs the added zing instead of the relish.
    Trisha Love your show. These were a big hit . Yummy made second platter with some crumpled bacon added to yolk. God bless you and yours
    I live in north Ga. My grandmother and my mother made them exactly the same way! I add a dash of garlic to mine and no matter how many I make at any gathering the are wiped out in no time! this recipe is the best! Just don't overload the mayo or mustard!
    EXCELLENT, simple and delicious!!!
    These were great. I did add a touch of the creamy horseradish sauce others suggested.
    i'm from ga. too! i make my deviled eggs the same way, but i add a little sour cream.i love your show trisha!i record every episode.i've always loved your music;now i can enjoy your cooking too!
    I just love this reciepe too. Made it for the 4th of July and went so fast wish I made more. I purchased a plastic deviled egg tray with cover at Walmart. It has 20 divisions for 10 hard boiled eggs halved. Just love it. Couldn't imagine not having one.
    Loved the deviled egg recipe. Quick and easy for the 4th of July get together.
    I love this deviled egg recipe - it's basic but good! I need to know where to purchase the deviled egg plate and egg carton Trisha used on her show. The white with blue flowers . . . please help!
    Very good basic recipe - but I kick it up a notch with a tablespoon of horseradish sauce - not straight horseradish but the sauce.
    This was my first time making deviled eggs and found this recipe to be great. I would use this as my go to recipe in the future. Definitely worth trying. of my favorite "snacks"! But I also tweaked mine. In addition, I add about a tsp white or white wine vinegar & about 1/8 cup chopped green olives with the pimentos. It took some time finding the right tweaks for my taste & these were the key for me.
    Ahhhh, the traditional southern deviled egg. I use the same ingredients but add some sweet pickle juice and about a tsp (or so of apple cider vinegar. The vinegar really brings out all the flavors over night.
    I really liked this recipe, it reminds Me of all the Church/ Potluck dinners I have attended.. a great Southern recipe from a Beautiful Southern Lady.. Trisha glad You are on FN..
    Great recipe Trisha I use the same ingredients, but add a touch of horshradish for a little kick.
    Love it!!! You can find these at any church dinner, family reunion, and baby shower south of the Mason Dixon Line and east of the Mississippi. Minimal ingredients + simple directions = delicious results. What more could you ask for?
    This is how my Mom made Deviled Eggs all her Southern life & it's the same way I have made them for the last 35 years!! So simple! Sometimes I will sprinkle paprika on top of the finished eggs!!
    love it :
