We all love deviled eggs, and everyone in our family enjoyed this version as part of Easter dinner. I didn't find the horseradish overwhelming at all, but I did use the smaller amount (2 Tbsp.) I plan to use this recipe to make egg salad, too. Yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the eggs in a large saucepan, cover with an inch of water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a medium bowl with 1 quart of water and a dozen ice cubes. Pour off the water from the saucepan and gently shake the pan back and forth to crack the shells. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggs to the ice water and let cool for 5 minutes.
  2. Peel the eggs and slice them in half length-wise. Transfer the yolks to a fine-mesh sieve and use a spatula to press them through the sieve and into a bowl.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the paprika), and mash the mixture against the sides of the bowl until smooth.
  4. Arrange the whites on a serving platter and fill with the yolk mixture. Sprinkle with paprika and serve.
