    I know there are lots of different ways to make deviled eggs. I have my own way, but I'm always on the lookout for the perfect deviled egg. So how do you make yours?

    Well, first I boil them... [​IMG]

    Seriously now... if I don't have finicky people coming over (DH will put just about anything I put on his plate...he's like Andrew Zimmern on Bizarre Foods), then I add in a little mayo, yellow mustard or brown mustard depending what I have on hand), coarse spicy mustard (with the mustard seeds), dill, salt, pepper and paprika. [​IMG]

    ETA: The finnicky eaters method of Deviled eggs is mayo, little mustard (sometimes), salt, pepper and paprika.

    what? no one puts Crunchies in their devilled egs? Ya gots to have crunchies!!!!

    chopped really fine onion, green pepper, maybe a dill pickle (dill relish if ya can't chop a pickle very easily) radishes, maybe if ya got room a little bit of celery. Then mix all that into the egg yolk, mustard, salt, pepper, paprika, a little mayo, and then mmmmmmmm.

    Ok the ususal:
    miricle whip
    mustard (preferably Inglehoffer Sweet and Hot)
    salt and pepper to taste

    and the kick:
    cayanne Pepper instead of Paprika

    makes it different and I love a bit of a spice like that!

    Maybe on just a few of them [​IMG] just in case the family hates it.

    eta - as a side note... does anyone else find themselves making devilled eggs, or onion roll ups or whatnot just for special occasions/holidays? I did, so last week I made onion rolls ups (green onion with cream cheese and ham) and the family asked what the occasion was [​IMG] I said I just felt like eating onion roll ups.

    miracle whip
    apple cider vinagar

    that is the most common basic ingredients for mine.
    the vinegar adds zest.
