Yummy! I also grew up eating deviled eggs like this. I left out the pimientos since we don't like them. Very simple but very good! Made for Zaar's Newest Star Tag Game 2011.

I am from Texas and for the most part, this is the recipe I used for Deviled Eggs. That said, I tried other recipes from to be sure, as I was having guests over. In my opinion (and I have eaten all over the world), this simple recipe is best. Most consumers will agree. When you get into adding onions or vinegar or bacon, etc, fewer people will like them. In this case, simple is best.

Would it seem ridiculous if I jammed one whole egg in my mouth. Oh, it would? Perfect! Made for A-NZ#60.
