Simple Deviled Eggs

Well with Easter coming, I know there will be plenty of eggs to deal with. I would like to share a recipe with you for Deviled Eggs. I found this recipe and have been using it for over 30 years and I never bring any home or have any left. They are delicious and easy, and you can always have the kids take the shells off. When they get older, they can do it themselves, it is so easy!


Peel 6 hard cooked eggs (You can always double for company). Cut peeled eggs into halves. Slip out yolks. Mash with fork just until they are all mashed (do not mix until creamy). Add 3 Tbsp. Mayo, Miracle Whip Salad Dressing (I can vouch for the Salad Dressing),Vinegar OR half and half. It depends on your taste. (I just tried the salad dressing and was hooked, as well as everyone else!)

Now add:

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Dry Mustard (you can not use regular mustard as a replacement)

Mix together with the eggs. Next, fill the egg whites, heaping lightly. You can also sprinkle Paprika on top for color. Now you are done, Yea!

If you have time use a pastry bag, fill it and, using a large fancy tip, fill the egg whites.

Place the eggs on a nice egg plate. If you do not have a egg plate, use some lettuce on a fancy plate and place eggs on top for a little dressier look. If you have paper dollies, they look really nice also. But if you are busy, just plop them down on a plate. They taste just as good! I hope you all enjoy!

If you use 1/4 teaspoon celery salt and 1/4 regular salt, with Miracle whip and a couple of drops of yellow mustard, it's even better (03/22/2008)

I am a little confused with recipe. I think you mean add mayo or miracle whip or vinegar or half and half. Is this right or do you add more than one of these ingredianst? Thanks. (03/22/2008)

I am sorry maybe I obviously needed to be clearer. You are to use either Mayo or Miracle Whip salad dressing, or vinegar OR half and half. I always used the Salad Dressing and the 3 tbsp worked ok for me. I never tried anything else as everyone esp me included, loved the taste. I hope this helped. Sorry, Darlene (03/23/2008)
