You’d think deviled eggs would be the easiest thing in the world to make…especially in the South! They are a staple in every covered dish dinner in the South! However, you’d be surprised how many people have a problem getting just the right filling consistency and taste, very often too runny. We hope “Granny’s Deviled Eggs 101” will help and you’ll enjoy both of these recipes.

Granny’s Deviled Eggs 101
First of all choose eggs that are at least a week old. Why? Because fresher ones will be hard to peel, almost impossible to peel! Buy them a week or 2 ahead of when you’re planning to serve them and put them in their egg carton (s) in a separate place in your fridge. To boil: Always place the eggs in cold (tap) water and in a boiler large enough to completely cover the eggs. Bring to a boil; cover with the pan lid and remove from heat. Let stand for 15 minutes (use a timer if necessary) then, drain the water and place the eggs under cold water.
At this point I tap them against the sink to crack the shells and peel them under cold running water, with sturdy paper towels in the sink to catch the peelings. Pushing the shell off with the side of your thumb, they should come off easily. You may have to use your thumb nail for stubborn ones. Slice the eggs in half carefully removing the yolks with a teaspoon. Place in a small bowl and mash the yolks thoroughly with a fork, ready to add the rest of the filling ingredients’.
Filling for 6 large eggs:
1 tsp. prepared yellow mustard
1½ Tbsp. sweet pickle relish, drained
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
Salt & black pepper to taste
Garnish: sprinkle of paprika, tiny piece of pimiento or other desired garnish
Mash yolks well with a fork; add mustard, relish, 1 to 2 tablespoons mayonnaise to get the right consistency (don’t want it runny), then salt & pepper to taste. Spoon yolk mixture into egg white halves and garnish.
