Deviled Eggs Like Your Mom Made? Maybe.
Preparation of Deviled Eggs
Save the Deviled Egg!
- 4 eggs, hard boiled
- 2-3 T. mayonnaise
- 1 1/2 t. sweet pickle relish
- 2 t. prepared mustard
- 2 T. dehydrated onions
- 2 t. celery seed, NOT celery salt
- 2 t. curry, mild
- 2 t. green chiles, chopped OPTIONAL
- 1 T. sweet pickle juice, AS NEEDED (secret save)
- 1 T. plain non fat yoghurt, AS NEEDED (secret save)
Assembly of Deviled Eggs
- Begin with boiled eggs that are split and the yolks in a bowl
- Mix dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Mix until smooth. The dehydrated onions will soak up the wet ingredients
- Fill the egg cups. CHILL in the fridge for at least 2 hours so the onions are soft.
- NOTE: Chop the green chiles finely and mix into the yellow egg mixture. Yep, a great Southwest USA twist!

The Price of Eggs Encourages Egg Recipes!
Eggs are only ninety-nine cents a dozen this week. This is also the season of autumn potlucks. We are careening into Thanksgiving and Christmas parties too. Deviled eggs are a staple during this season.
So, just how do we make Deviled Eggs? I sent out an Email to my family and friends. I asked them how they made their eggs. Here are their recipes. My recipe is included too!
First, thanks to My Seester, Andrea, Marietta, Jackie, and Sue for their answers.
Tasty Recipes from all over the USA!!
Here are the recipes. They are in NO particular order. They are also exactly how the recipes were sent to me. I.e no editing on my part
I don’t experiment with my deviled eggs like I do other things. I just mainly add a little salt, Miracle Whip® and some mustard until it looks right. Not very inventive, I know. I have seen where people put slices of olives on top, but, I never have. ~from Me, My Seester
Mine is very plain mayo, pepper and a dash of vinegar also half teaspoon of dry mustard. Mix with yolk and stuff in egg add dash of paprika on top of each. Sometimes I put fresh chopped garlic chives in the yolk mixture. ~Andrea K.
~ Dry mustard
~ Parsley flakes
~ A little milk
Mix together until smooth. ~ From Sue
6 eggs, hard-boiled
Cut each boiled egg in half around it's waist.
Gently remove the cooked yolks and put them into a small mixing bowl with:
1/2 tsp. (?) plain yellow mustard ( She may have also used a bit of sweet relish, too)
1 tbsp mayonnaise
sprinkle of salt
Carefully blend these ingredients, and then put the mixture back into the yolk space.
Sprinkle paprika on each finished egg half
Refrigerate before serving. ~ From Marietta who says it is her Mom's Egg Recipe from 1960 Iowa
First of all, I don't have the measurements. Mom always used the phrase, "well you know, just put some in until . . . well, you know" to answer the inquiry of how much of something to put in. My sister, Noretta, and I used to have a lot of fun with that phrase. So here goes.
Mash up the yolks and add some mayo, dried mustard and maybe some salt, you know. Then put back into the halved whites and sprinkle with paprika. ~ Jackie B.
Here is my recipe, and yes it is from my Mom with some additions, of course!
