love devil eggs this is just how my mommy us to make, thanks for reminding me how

A successful design, and easy to make delicious.

Great basic recipe. Use as is or as a starting place to make your own version. I like to top mine with an olive slice and some paprika.

I did forget, I do sometimes put in some sweet relish if on hand.

I make my eggs just like this but sometimes I do dice real small some celery, but with 1tsb. of salt which is the 1/2tsb of celery salt and the 1/2tsb of regular salt I would not think that is too much salt for all that eggs, but what you should do is taste your mixture and if you think it is to salty, just boil another egg and add to mixture. I never measure. I eye ball it and taste and then add. Also if you like tuna you can throw that in also. I am a concoction person. Also a little bit of onion or scallion would be good, but diced up real small but like I said I have made it this way and it is good. Don't forget a thin slice of green or black olive on top or a pimento. Well this is just my opinion. Happy Cooking Everyone.

tsb --- is that a combination of teaspoon and tablespoon? That might be quite a bit of salt, etc. reading "tsb."

Needs more mayo for my taste and I add a little sweet relish. For a real treat add about 4 oz finely shredded cheddar cheese to the yolk mixture!

Using just 1/3 cup of mayonnaise doesn't seem like there will be enough filling for 36 egg halves.

Made these as directed. Far too salty, had to salvage with extra eggs and only a few spoons of the original mixture, the rest of which had to be discarded. Too much waste and time to ever try them again.

mybrammer 9828547 you can cut back on the salt you know.....A recipe is just a base really get it then make it your own add or subtract things you think you would love in it omitt the things you think will be nasty....PEACE LOVE I'M OUT.....

But it's rather difficult to subtract salt from an already-mixed yolk filling!

try putting in a little sugar or pickle relish

I wondered about the salt when I read this. There was salt and celery salt. I don't usually use salt at all because the mayonnaise is actually about salty enough. I use the mayo and the mustard, mix it up and then taste it to see if it needs more salt.

It is perfect as is!!!!

We love them.

I use sandwich spread for the mixture because it has the mayo, sweet relish, and whatever else is in's simple and delish!

I tried 18 of them for a family get-together. I added finely chopped celery and used Miracle Whip because I prefer to and they went before any of the other great dishes! A hint for peeling the eggs easily -- add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of salt to the water before cooking the eggs (depending on how many you prepare at a time). This causes the shells to expand and leeches some of the liquid from the interior which causes a microscopic space between the cooked egg and the shell.

Make 2-3 dozen eggs every other Sunday, and the particiipants claim they are the best ever tasted. Just add some sweet pickle relish. About an 1/8-1/4 of a cup. And about a tablespoon of ranch dressing. DEEEEEEElisious

how about a little bit of diced celery, or some shredded carrot to the mixture. I love to make concoctions, but that's me. Oh what about a little bit of horseradish to the mixture also.

Looks Great I would add crumbled bacon.
