My Mom's Deviled Eggs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by chilepepper1231

My Mom taught me how to make these, her secret was the sauce. She used it for these as well as coleslaw and potato salad. I think it is the sugar that makes the eggs slightly sweet. This last Easter, my sister-in-law and I both made deviled eggs and I have to say, that mine won! I don't think I ever have had sweet ones anywhere else. And here is my secret....I eat 2 eggs worth of the whites, while I am making them that makes the other eggs really full.

I just finished making these...a bit tooooooo sweet for me. I will use half the sugar next time. But I must say...I like making the sauce and adding it to the yolks...makes it much easier than my way.

  7. Take sauce out of fridge and stir again.
  8. Now it should be smooth.
  9. Mix sauce with mashed egg yolks.
