Deviled Eggs

deviled eggs

One thing I’ve noticed about going to any potluck, or as my church calls them covered dish dinners, is there are always at least 2 kinds of deviled eggs. I’ve seen deviled eggs with relish in them, there are always at least one platter of them that have been sprinkled with paprika, and occasionally I’ve spotted pimiento stuffed olive topped eggs as well.

My family likes deviled eggs pretty straightforward: egg yolks, mayonnaise, a hint of mustard, and a couple basic seasonings. The great thing about this recipe is it’s made of staples so you can whip up a batch for any last minute potluck or barbecue need.
