eggggggggggggsellent! the first deviled eggs that I ever liked! I make them for the family and always think how ikky they are, I made this recipe because I only had Miracle Whip in the house from some other recipe I made awhile ago, I really, really liked these... while I am usually an anti pickle in a recipe kinda girl, I have to say that I think that is what made these so good! Wow,I have aquired a taste for brussel sprouts and deviled eggs all in one year.... what's next? liver???? ;P
I made these just by your recipe. And they are awesome. So not sure why folks say they use your recipe but add many other ingredients to it. That makes it their own. I love telling folks this was your recipe and I tell everyone.
I made these to take to my son's Memorial Day ccokout. I quadrupled the recipe, used a little less sweet picke relish, and added a little horseradish sauce. These eggs were gobbled up in a flash. I didn't have any leftover to take home. Made for Diabetic Cooking Tag Game.
I have to echo others' comments: these are just like the deviled eggs I've always made, except I never added the mustard. Your recipe gives me a way to zing them up without making them dry. Excellent! Thank you.
Good base recipe, though those of us that do not like Miracle Whip would substitute mayonnaise or plain yogurt. If you like your food bland, you can leave it like it is. Add a bit of dry mustard, hot peppers, onion, or hot sauce if you like them spicy (after all, that is what "deviled" means).
My grandmother taught me her recipe. We use Hellman's real mayo in our house. Its way less sweet and has no HFCS. Next we are purists and take no shortcuts like this recipe does. First of all, you get a quality gherkin instead of relish. My favorie is the German imported gherkins from World Market. You do the basic prep the same exept you chop up the gherkins to tiny pieces. Mix the cooked yoke with mayo, mustard, and the gherkins. Sprinkle with some paprika. Cut a large olive in two and place a half on the top. Now its a gourmet egg.
OLD SCHOOL! My recipe is superior: Use half and half brown mustard and regular mustard. Use Worchester sauce. And use Balsamic Vinegar. The paprika can be spinkled on last. Add mayonaise just a bit because we just want a creamy smooth texture. Miracle Whip has MSG, not good and it's cheating. You could add a dash of garlic or onion powder but it should be as good as it gets.
This is the exact recipe I've been making for years (with Miracle Whip, not mayo). A friend of the family taught it to me when I was 13 and I've been making them ever since. They are known as my specialty for family gatherings.
These are so good!
