Southern Deviled Eggs

Let’s be real (I like doing that), who doesn’t like deviled eggs?? Are you even a true red blooded American unless you love deviled eggs? Every Thanksgiving & Christmas I have a couple go-to’s for finger foods. I mean isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about- overly dressing up to sit around in your living room all day consuming roughly 4,000 calories and watching football with your family? Orrrr is that just me?

Generally I make 2 batches of them and they always run out so I suggest having 3-4 batches ready to go, baby. They WILL go fast!




*6 hard boiled eggs

*3 Tbsp Mayonnaise 

*1/2 Tsp yellow mustard

*1 1/2 Tsp sweet pickle relish

*pinch salt & pepper


*baby dill pickles sliced


  1. Hard boil eggs.
    • BOILING EGGS TRICK*** Boil eggs for roughly 12 minutes. Once they are done immediately place them in a big bowl of ice cold water. Let them sit for 5-10 mins. This hardens the shell back so when you are peeling the egg shells off they slide off easily vs a fucking nightmare. 
  2. Cut eggs in halves, remove yolks and place in a small mixing bowl.  Place egg whites on a platter or egg plate (what a great invention btw). 
  3. Mash yolks with a fork until they resemble a sandy texture. Add mayonnaise, mustard, relish, salt, and pepper; stir until well combined and smooth.
  4. Place egg yolk mixture into a Ziploc bag towards one corner. Cut the a corner with scissors. Sprinkle with paprika and garnish each deviled egg with a dill pickle slice. 
  5. INDULGE!!
