Lynda's Deviled Eggs

My deviled eggs are the result of fine-tuning and experimenting through the years. I especially like the spices (turmeric, dill weed) used in this recipe.

ingredients

directions

  • Slice eggs lengthwise, slipping yolks into a separate bowl.
  • (I set aside the egg halves that didn't come out perfectly and dice them for use in the egg salad mix.) Add onion, turmeric, dill weed, salt/pepper, about half of the paprika.
  • Use a fork to loosen the egg yolks and blend with other ingredients before adding any moisture.
  • This helps avoid those lumps of unmixed yolk you sometimes find.
  • Add gherkins and juice.
  • Add moisture: 1/4 cup mayo and approximately 2 tablespoons mustard to start; mix well.
  • (I operate on the principle that you can always make a mix more moist, but taking it out is very hard!).
  • Taste.
  • Adjust moisture to your preference, using mayo, mustard or pickle juice- whichever is most needed.
  • Scoop into egg white halves, top with paprika, chill before serving.

    This was a very good recipe for deviled eggs. I did not have gherkins or dill weed so used dill pickle to great results. Everytime I turned around my boyfriend was "testing" another one. Thanks for a big hit.

    loved it! i used dill pickles instead of the gherkins, and left out the turmeric (as i didnt have any at the time), and the family loved it! i added the paprika to the mixture in lieu of topping it. FYI-- easy way to fill the eggs? scoop the finished mix into a baggie, seal, and cut a hole in one corner! 100 times easier!

    really good... i didn't chop the red onion finely enough but these were a gourmet alternative to your basic mayo and mustard deviled eggs!
