The Best Deviled Egg Recipe


  • A dozen eggs
  • 1/2 cup of mayo
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of yellow mustard
  • paprika


  1. Hard boil a dozen eggs.  Go here for our tips on the best way to hard boil your eggs.
  2. After you’ve peeled the eggs, slice them in half.  Gently squeeze or massage the egg halves and, if done right, the yolks should pop right out. Place the yolks in a bowl and place the egg whites on a plate to the side.
  3. Add mayo, salt, pepper and yellow mustard to the bowl of yolks and mash together.  Using the back of a fork or small potato masher works very well.
  4. Place the yolk mixture in a decorators bag (or simply use a plastic sandwich bag and snip off a small piece of one corner) and fill each egg whites.
  5. Sprinkle the deviled eggs with a bit of paprika to add color and a little bit of kick.
  6. Refrigerate for up to one day before serving.

That’s it!  These are guaranteed to be a hit with children and adults alike.
