Mom & Dad Deviled Eggs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by AcadiaTwo

My Mom & Dad have been making deviled eggs like this for as long as I can remember! I recommend using The Most Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs (No Needles Involved) to cook the eggs to begin with. If you don't like Miracle Whip use Ketchup! Don't like eggs use a potato! Don't like cayenne pepper use salt! Got a Great Recipe of Your Own? Don't post it here!

Our family's taste is used to the non-sweet mayo-mustard, so this was just "OK". Most felt it was too sweet due to Miracle Whip. I had forgotten how much sugar is in it. WANT TO TRY A GOOD VERSION?? Ok, don't use a dozen eggs like I did, just in case it's not your taste. Make only a few or if you are already making them, use this version for a few-several out of your batch. Use Hellman's mayo-and yellow mustard as a starter base. Season with salt, a very small dash of pepper or as I use, white pepper, and small dash of garlic powder. Finally........wait.......CURRY! You can sprinkle it in or on the deviled eggs. Important---DON'T TELL anyone what the spice is until they try it! You don't want anyone's preconceived opinions to interfere with the taste. OMG! They are so scrumptious! People LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. Almost every person could not guess what the spice was. Originally someone did this to me, and it worked because I thought I didn't like curry. Or maybe the curry just tastes different when mixed into the rich yolks and mayo. Either way, I don't care. I've had so many friends turn around and do this "guessing game" to their family and friends, as I did to them! This is A TON of fun! If you do it, come back and tell us what happened! Happy Thanksgiving! :-)
