Everyone has a basic deviled egg recipe, and I am certain, everyone’s is different.
My Mom made eggs this way, and it is what is familiar for me and the kids. We love them. Boil eggs. I normally cover the eggs with cold water in a pot. Bring to boil, and once bubble come to the top start the timer for 12 minutes. Off the heat, and rinse with cold water. I add ice cubes to help the process.
Cut eggs in half, and remove the yolk (place in a large bowl. I have a chilled platter for eggs, so I placed the halves here until I mixed up the yolk.
Crumble the yolks.
Add the ingredients. I don’t have an exact measurement, as it seems I go by sight and feel. I start with Tabasco.
Then sweet relish.
Then mayonnaise. Just remember that you can always add more than take any away if it gets runny! So, just a spoonful of most of the ingredients.
I also add salt and ground pepper.
and stir some more.
There are some that will place the yolk mixture in a plastic bag and pipe into the egg halves. I don’t, never have. I just use a small spoon, and add until the yolk’s are back where they belong.
Then sprinkle with Paprika.
