Lennie, these are definitely different and very good. The cream cheese and relish together... soooo good!! I made regular deviled eggs and also a batch of these and both went. These are a keeper!! Thanks for sharing.
This is wonderful with minced swet gherkins and onion. I have a suggestion if you want an easy way to make your eggs look fancy. Use a ziploc bag! Just spoon your egg yolk mixture into a ziploc storage bag and seal. Cut the corner of the bag off, and voila! You have a disposable pastry bag. No clean up, just toss! When you are filling the eggs, hold the bag at the BOTTOM of the inside of the egg, and pull up as you squeeze. Otherwise you get what my kids call "cat poop!" It takes some practice, but they look really nice!
A very good alternative to the mayonnaise type eggs. There was plenty of yolk mixture left over so my only suggestion would to be to cut the amounts of yolks, cream cheese, relish and mustard in half. Put the other 4 yolks in a salad or something.
My dad is extremely picky when it comes to his devilled eggs. I knew I would never get him to try these...because they aren't made with mayo. I "tricked" him into tasting one and then told him (AFTER he said they were the best he's had) what is in them. I added some very finely minced onion and used sweet gerkins instead of the relish. It's my new favorite devilled egg recipe!
This recipe was great. Every one at the Xmas party loved it. It also piped very well. I used a large star tip. I garnished it with a small fanned out sweet gherkin to compliment the sweet relish taste.
Realy good devilled eggs! I used lite cream cheese. Took these on a picnic and watched them all get gobbled up. Thanks for posting.
I made these exactly as written and found them to be too pasty with the cream cheese and the taste was off.
This was a very creative idea and I'm glad I tried it. Deviled eggs are somewhat of a trick in my house since my husband isn't fond of mayonnaise, mustard OR pickle relish! I thought I'd give these a try to see if maybe the cream cheese would add something that regular mayo doesn't in traditional deviled eggs. We both liked them a lot, though I think they may have been a little too rich for me - maybe a combination of cream cheese and mayo is the way to go for us in the end. I'll definitely be making these again though, as the proportions on the seasonings were just right! Thanks for passing this along.
Very good recipe, I used "light" cream cheese and they turned out just fine, I also sprinkled some bacon bits on top for a little extra pizzaz. Yummy eggs!
These are now a staple for all family bbqs at the alke house. THANKS!!!
