Deviled eggs are always present at our cookouts, holidays and family gatherings. This recipe is a must have in your repertoire.
Deviled eggs are a hit at any party or gathering. We grew up with them at every family gathering no matter what time of the year.
Only 3 ingredients. Well, five if you don’t count the salt and pepper, which I don’t.
Amazing Deviled Eggs with Relish
They are so simple and scrumptious. It’s hard not to just pop one in your mouth while you are making them. Ok, I admit after countless years of making these I now boil an extra egg for the sole purpose of eating while prepping.
Most classic deviled egg recipes use yellow mustard, Dijon mustard, or white vinegar. We don’t use any of those and we love them this way.
Boil the eggs by placing them in a medium-sized pot, cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat, drain, and place in a cold water ice bath. They are much easier to peel if you gently crack each egg and allow to cool completely in the ice bath.
Peel the eggs. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise and pop out the yolk into a bowl. Removing the yolk is easy just using the tip of your knife.
Use a fork to smash the egg yolks.
Mix in the mayo, dill relish, salt, and pepper.
I use a spoon to fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture.
If you want to be fancy place the yolk mixture in a piping bag or zip-top bag, snip off a corner and pipe into the whites.
Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika if that’s your thing!
