These Southern Deviled Eggs are a recipe that has been passed down from my Granny. These Deviled Eggs are creamy and delicious, and go great at any family gathering, BBQ, or potluck.
My family has been making these deviled eggs for generations. My mom learned this recipe when she was a child, and passed it on to me and my sisters.
I make these at almost every holiday we celebrate and at a lot of our other gatherings. They are super simple to make, and full of that Southern comfort food we all love and enjoy.
How to make Southern Deviled Eggs:
This recipe is really easy to make. Start off by boiling your eggs, and then peeling them. I have directions on how to perfectly hard boil an egg you can follow.
Once peeled slice your eggs in half long ways, and take the yolks out carefully.
Mix in your yolks up with the other ingredients to make the egg filling. Fill your egg whites with the filling, garnish and serve!
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- Sweet Pickle Relish
- Optional: Paprika and Relish for garnish
Step One - Peel cooked hard boiled eggs then slice in half and add the yolk to a bowl.
Step Two - Use a fork to mash and mix the yolk with mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Step Three - Spoon in yolk mix to your egg white.
Step Four - Garnish with paprika and more relish.
How to hard boil an egg:
One of the more difficult steps of this recipe is making a good, hard-boiled egg. Not only cooking the eggs but peeling them could be troublesome.
I linked about my directions for hard boiling eggs, but here are some general tips to a good hard-boiled egg.
- Do not over boil the eggs. Boiling them too long could make them hard to peel. Boiling for 10 minutes should be the perfect amount of time for a great boiled egg.
- Once done boiling add ice to the pan. Adding ice to the eggs after they have boiled will slow the cooking process down and allow the eggs to cool to touch and peel.
- Use a spoon to peel the eggs. Believe or not using a spoon to help peel eggs is a time saver and really keeps the eggs from being stuck to the shell! Crack the egg at the air pocket, and then slip a spoon gently in between the shell and egg to peel the egg.
What to garnish deviled eggs with:
I love to sprinkle some Paprika on top of my deviled eggs. For this recipe I also put a pinch of sweet pickle relish on top as well.
Fresh Parsley or Green Onions are also a great garnish for the tops of deviled eggs.
