What makes this recipe different is the softened butter that is added to the yolk mixture. It adds a nice depth and richness to the eggs. This recipe is a Julia Child original.

  2. Blend in the mayo, butter, pickle and salt and pepper.

DH loved these deviled eggs. They are not a favorite of mine but I did enjoy these with the addition of the sweet pickle relish in the filling. Made one dozen eggs and used 2 tablespoons of soft butter, a heaping tablespoon of sweet pickle relish and almost all the mayonnaise. A very creamy rich tasting filling that would be very pretty piped into the egg white. Ridgely thank you for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for the game forum's Iron Chef recipe tag game.

Delicious! I really like the butter addition in these eggs. Be sure to have the butter VERY soft for easy blending. Thanks for a keeper!
