She-Deviled Eggs

"I like biting into a deviled egg and it bites me back! These measurements are approximate. I actually use more cayenne pepper and horseradish than here, but I needed to get a handle on the amounts for sharing my recipe, and these proportions are good. I have not included the cooking time for boiling the eggs."

36 She-Devil Eggs




  • Cut eggs in half lengthwise, carefully removing yolks into a medium-sized bowl,(I use a Pyrex 2-qt glass bowl) and placing the whites onto a serving plate.
  • Mash the yolks in the bowl with a fork until they look like coarse cornmeal.
  • Mix in dry ingredients first: white pepper, cayenne, salt and ground mustard; next mix in wet ingredients: mayonnaise, relish, yellow mustard and horseradish.
  • Stir until well blended. Adjust seasonings to taste; adjust amount of wet ingredients for texture, if necessary.
  • Fill egg white halves with yolk mixture, using a teaspoon.
  • Sprinkle with sweet paprika and press a single pimento-stuffed green olive into the yolk to make them festive!

    Made these for New Years Eve 2011 and scaled the recipe down to 6 eggs. These little "bites" are indeed very good. Made exactly as stated and would, like another reviewer, probably cut down on the horseradish next time. The spices made them different from other deviled eggs, they were fun to make and very tasty.<br/>Thanks for posting.

    I love horseradish, so jumped at the chance to try these. I did find however that the horseradish overpowered the other ingredients. I *will* be making them again, but will probably reduce the amount by half. Thanks for posting. I looking forward to doing this again.

    Love devil eggs and have introduced many of my adult children's friends to the them as they had never tasted them. Now when they are here, I will make sure I make some. This is an excellent recipe!! Love the horseradish as I never thought of that to try. Thanks to Divaconviva for a great recipe!!! Gail

    These are excellent! I had tried an deviled egg recipe with horseradish before but without the spices. This spice blend makes them even better. I did leave out the sweet relish to cut down on sugar. They were still great.


Hi, everyone! My name is Ellen. I was born in the town so nice, they named it twice - New York, New York! I grew up in Ossining, NY, just minutes outside of Manhattan. My grandma immigrated to New York from Austria, and owned a delicatessen for years right near the original Yankee Stadium. She was a fabulous cook and baker, as was my mother, and I learned a lot about food preparation from both of them. I could cook a complete meal for eight people by the time I was in the third grade. I always loved to cook, and with two such great teachers, how could I not?! I am a born-again Christian, and I have enjoyed serving on different ministries at my church, the most recent one being data-entering the info and prayer requests handed in every week on the Care & Communication Cards, and then I follow up with phone calls & emails to welcome, answer any questions, and assist, if needed. I also work with Community Caregivers, an organization providing all kinds of assitance to people who have need, including delivering prescriptions, providing transportation to doctor appointments, helping the visually disabled with paperwork, etc. It has been a great growing experience for me. This is Jeff, my husband and most appreciative gourmand. This is Cricket, our American Eskimo. He is pure energy! This is Daphne, our Bluetick Hound. She is a sweetheart! Here's a video of a youth drama/dance from GodTube that is absolutely one of my favorites! Thank you, SusieQusie! Thank you, Susie D! Thank you, FloridaNative!
