Best Ever Deviled Eggs Recipe

A summer cookout just isn’t the same without Deviled Eggs. I’ve been making this recipe for years, starting when I was a little girl helping my mom scoop out the egg yolks and mashing them up. My mom modified this recipe slightly from an old Betty Crocker book and I’ve been making it ever since. This is really the best ever Deviled Eggs recipe. Seriously. Whenever I make these, people ask me for the recipe and rave about how delicious they are. They’re easy to make, with just a few simple ingredients.

I use Miracle Whip (as I do for my potato salad) but if you’re not a Miracle Whip fan, don’t let that turn you away. You can use regular mayonnaise instead. Although, you should know that I’ve had some New Englander friends (I’ll face it – most people around here don’t use Miracle Whip) be amazed because they normally don’t like Miracle Whip, but loved these.

What you’ll need:

*Note: this recipe makes 1 dozen deviled eggs. I usually double this recipe because they get eaten so quickly.

  • 6 hard-cooked eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
  • paprika

Peel the hard-cooked eggs and then cut them each lengthwise in half, like this:

Next add the salt and dry mustard. And the pepper. Just 1/8 teaspoon or a dash.

Lastly, sprinkle with paprika.

You can serve right away, but I think they taste better if you let them chill in the refrigerator for an hour or so. They are best if you make them the day they are eaten.  I’ll usually make them around noon for an evening cookout.

How’s that for an easy Deviled Eggs recipe?

Delicious!

    I’ve always loved deviled eggs. It’s always refreshing to see a new way to go about making them. I will have to sneak the Miracle Whip into the house though! To my fiance, it’s mayo or no go!

    Sounds good. I have several grown sons (8) and they all love deviled eggs and I have to make about 18 eggs worth when we all get together! I also use Miracle Whip, but I do use the lite. I add one dry mix package of ranch dressing/dip and boy are they good! The boys don’t eat them all, but they sure try! I also have a daughter and of course all the spouses, plus 31 grandchildren! This recipe is easy and tasty – everyone always loves them, even when they don’t normally like deviled eggs. That is what they say anyway! LOL

  3. I use Miracle Whip, it is all I use! I have just started using the one with Olive Oil. Tasty. I do love Deviled Eggs, but I never thought of using dry mustard. I just wing the amount of French’s Yellow Mustard that I use. Have you ever used regular mustard? Is there a taste difference?

    That is my mother’s exact recipe for Deviled eggs. She has been making them for as long as I can remember, and she calls it her secret recipe. EVERYONE begs for her recipe. Even when they are doing weddings at the church they ask my mom to be the one to make the eggs. Great recipe!

  11. Can I use a little bit of regular mustard? I don’t have any dry mustard on hand.
