Classic Deviled Eggs

Classic deviled eggs are a fantastic way to enjoy hard-boiled eggs. I love to make deviled eggs for a party. They are an uncomplicated and inexpensive appetizer that can be put together quickly. I have never set out a plate of deviled eggs without the plate being returned empty.

When I make old-fashioned deviled eggs, I like to stick with traditional ingredients. Mayonnaise, dijon mustard, red onion, paprika, and dill pickle relish lend their flavors to this Southern specialty.

These classic deviled eggs are delicious for a picnic, family dinner, or even for an appetizer party. You can prepare deviled eggs hours or even a day or two before the special event. For me, the dishes you can prepare ahead of time, in fact, the eggs take on more flavor if you prepare them ahead of time.
