Betty's Deviled Eggs

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by evewitch

I can't believe no one has posted this original, oh-so-simple recipe. Although I have tried many deviled egg recipes that I loved, and have awarded 5 stars to at least one here, my husband always demands at least one batch of "the old way." This is from Betty Crocker's New Cookbook. Although I nearly always use mayonnaise, Miracle Whip and half-and-half are acceptable substitutes in a pinch.

My grandmother taught me to make these deviled eggs. They are easy but not lacking in taste. If you want to jazz them up just add some pickle relish.
