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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For hard cooked eggs: Put a small pinhole in one end of each egg.
  2. Place eggs in a pot of water.
  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).
  7. Slice eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove yolks.
  8. Mash yolks with mayonnaise (I use a fork).
  9. Add remaining ingredients except paprika.
  10. Mix well with hand mixer until nice and smooth.
  11. Stuff egg whites with yolk mixture.
  12. Garnish eggs with paprika.

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.

Made the deviled egg recipe yesterday. Only thing I regret is that I didn't double the recipe. Easy to make, tastes great and will definitely be making again. Thanx, Shannon!
