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.
I love Deviled Eggs and they are always a huge hit at family dinners. I've never been able to duplicate my grandma's recipe but these came pretty close. I did add some finely diced onion and dill pickle. Not much, just enough to add some great flavor. I omitted the sugar but did add pepper and coarse sea salt. Oh and I use powdered mustard as my grandma did. Just don't add the same amount as the prepared mustard called for in the recipe. I added about 1.5 tsps. Please don't think I did A LOT of tweaking. I've been looking for this combination of ingredients and LOVED the results.
