Grand Ma-Ma's Deviled Eggs (No Mayo!!)

Total Time

This recipe is unique in that it doesn't have mayonnaise, if you are one that is expecting a "creamy" mayo type deviled egg, this recipe may NOT be for you!! For me the melted butter gives these eggs a unique and added flavor. Adapted from Gooseberry Patch Newsletter. *Cooking time varies based on your method of boiling eggs, so that is a broad estimate!!!

We had a rating of 4 to 5 on these deviled eggs from the taste testers. I have to say that I enjoy the mayo based recipes a bit better but for everyone else these eggs were a hit. I made 12 eggs and then tripled the remaining ingredients. If doubling or tripling the recipe do be careful with the salt and worcestershire sauce because the mixture will be on the salty side. I would add the worcestershire sauce and then taste to see how much salt if any is needed. The egg mixture is dense and the texture reminds me of pie crust dough. There is a bit of a tangy flavor that was a nice change of pace and liked not having to worry about them spoiling from the heat. Thank you kitty for sharing this recipe. :) Made and reviewed for KK's Recipe Tag Game.

These were delicious! I've been craving something creamy and we don't have any mayo in the house, so I whipped these up. They hit the spot! This will also be a great substitute for taking deviled eggs out to picnics - no need to worry about the mayo going bad. Thanks for the recipe!

These are great eggs! So different from the usual, and so tasty too. Hard boiled my eggs to boiling, put on lid, removed from heat and let sit 12 minutes. Drained water, added ice water, and eggs ready to go! Love the use of butter here, mixed with the yolk and seasonings very mild, but very flavorsome bites of goodness. I put chives and paprika on top. Will be making these again for Easter! Thanks! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday*
