Easy Deviled Eggs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Shannon Phaeton

I make these a lot for parties and everyone always makes comments on how I make the best deviled eggs. The kids even love to eat them. This is from a 1982 Southern Living cookbook that I have.


This recipe is great!!!! I have made 250 deviled eggs since I found this recipe a month ago. Now I am not allowed to go to a party unless I bring them.They disappear faster than I can make them. I don't know if poking the eggs prior to boiling works, because I didn't try it. Next time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For hard cooked eggs: Put a small pinhole in one end of each egg.

  3. Bring water to a boil.
  4. When it boils, turn down to simmer.
  5. Simmer 20 minutes.
  6. When eggs are done, place immediately in a bowl of ice cubes and water (to keep yolks from turning green).
