Southern Deviled Eggs Recipe

Please Share Y'all!

Southern Deviled Eggs are a classic starter for family meals and holiday gatherings. These tasty little appetizers are creamy and delicious and perfect for any occasion.

Deviled eggs go quickly at our family meals. I have to make a double batch so that everyone has a good chance of getting one. I’m not kidding. My people love deviled eggs. I do too!

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 Large Eggs, boiled and peeled
  • 1/4 Cup of Mayonnaise ( I prefer  Duke’s Mayonnaise ) 
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard, like Grey Poupon (optional but recommended)
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Fresh Dill for Garnish
  • Alternate: Sliced Green Olives for Garnish
  • Paprika for Garnish

After the eggs have been boiled and peeled cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yellow yolks and place them into a bowl to prepare the filling. Mash the yolks with a fork.

Add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper and dill and mix well.

I find it easier to take the filling and put it in a sandwich type plastic bag, snip off the corner and fill the whites with the yolk mixture.

Sprinkle eggs with paprika and garnish with either a slice of green olive or sprig of fresh dill.

Best Ever Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs

I will usually prepare my eggs the day before. I make up the filling and store it in a small zip lock bag so that I can easily snip a corner and fill the egg whites shortly before serving. It’s a real time saver.

It also makes filling the eggs go so much faster this way than using a knife or spoon.

      Joanne, it really does! I love it. After I tried it the first time I've made them that way ever since.

    I have to admit that when it comes to deviled eggs, I pretty much can’t resist. Thank you for sharing your recipe at Foodie Friday.

      Amy,
      I’m the same way! I just love deviled eggs. I have to make extras so I can have a few samples so there aren’t any missing from my egg plate for dinner.
