Christmas Tradition: Deviled Eggs


Along with other required favorites, my family always requests deviled eggs for our Christmas dinner. I found this recipe nearly 40 years ago, and I have never been persuaded to use any other version.

Deviled Eggs

6 hard-boiled eggs, halved
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Halve eggs lengthwise; remove yolks and mash (or process in food processor) with mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper. Fill or pipe into egg white. Chill.

  6. Granny, I love deviled eggs. Yours look so good! I never thought of adding vinegar to the yolk though. I'll have to give that a try next time.

  7. How beautiful! I always mean to pipe my filling in, but never do. It looks so nice though, that I think next time I will. I love your tiered serving dish too!
