These are so good and easy. I am always requested to make these for the holidays and for barbeques. I have to make a double batch because DH sneaks them when I'm not looking! :)

After using many recipes for deviled eggs, this is the most popular with guests and family members. (Deviled Eggs made with Miracle Whip are too tangy for some people.) The sugar added to the yolks seems to enhance the flavor. The only thing I do different is use cider vinegar and sometimes less sugar. I will try white vinegar the next time. Thanks for posting this simple and delicious recipe. It's the recipe of many of our grandmothers. PS Always boil an extra egg so that you will have enough yolk to prevent filling from being runny.

YUMMY! My mom told me she made hers with vinegar, but I wasn't sure how much to put in, so I searched this site until I found one that used vinegar. I followed the recipe 100%, and the eggs were SO GOOD. I was even guilty of licking the spoon after making the mixture! GREAT JOB!

Contrary to some other reviewers, I found the consistency to be fine, but it was too sweet. I would reduce or omit the sugar if I made these again.
