Recipe: Simple yet Tangy Deviled Eggs


Now I know everyone has had deviled eggs, and I have tasted SO many different kinds, and I still have never tasted any that are like mine. While the ingredients sound simple, they are GOOD. Tangy, not overly sweet, seasoned, and just YUMMY. I have had several people request me to make these at get togethers, and also people requesting my recipe. I never really had a recipe though, as I just KNEW how to make them. I finally took notes though, and got the recipe perfect! These are perfect for Easter!

18 Hard boiled eggs (36 halves)
1 Tbsp of regular mustard
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 Cup of mayo (NOT miracle whip)
3 Tbsp of regular white vinegar
2 tsp sugar

Boil your eggs, let them cool. I usually put in cold water and set in fridge before peeling.
Peel your eggs and rinse off, then pat dry.
Cut in half, spoon hard yolk into mixing bowl.
Smash all yolks til they are completely crumbled.
Add ALL ingredients except for Paprika.
Mix together.
If mixture is too thick, you can mess with the mayo or vinegar to thin it out a bit.
Spoon or pipe into egg whites.
Top with Paprika.
Refrigerate until time to eat!

That’s it! ENJOY!!!

    This recipe sounds amazing! I cant wait to try it out.

  3. That sounds like a good recipe. I’ve never tried vinegar in mine before. I too use mayo. I’ve never liked Miracle Whip. I’m going to try these tomorrow. Thanks!

  4. michelle salais says:

    Hu. I’ve never tried making them with vinegar and sugar. I just do mayo, mustard, salt, and, pepper. Oh, and bacon crumbed on top! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. OOOH I love deviled eggs SO MUCH!!!! And yes no Miracle Whip like ever. That stuff is NASTY.

  6. This looks delicious, i can’t wait to try it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  7. I make mine with all your ingredients except the sugar. Will have to try it next week when I have LOTS of hard boiled eggs.

  8. nancyfancypink says:

    I always have trouble peeling hard-boiled eggs. I will try your method of chilling them first and hope it works better! thanks.

  9. Senia Fuentes says:

    I will definitely be pinning this recipe. My husband loves deviled eggs, and so do I. I’ve never added white vinegar before, so I will be giving this a try. So simple, yet so delicious. Thanks!

  10. These looks so delicious and easy to do. I can’t wait to try it. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Sally T. says:

    I make my eggs like this but never with vinegar,I am going
    to have to try this.

  12. <3 deviled eggs! I usually use dried mustard, so maybe I'll try this out after the Easter bunny leaves lots of eggs!

  13. Mmm I love deviled eggs too! I have never tried making them with vinegar before though. I will definitely have to try these. I plan on making some for Easter tomorrow, and I think I will go with your recipe! Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Tamra Phelps says:

    This looks great–I love deviled eggs! I don’t know when to stop on these things, lol!

  15. These are pretty good. It seems like everybody has their own deviled egg recipes. I guess it’s just what you like. Kind of like pasta.

  16. I love deviled eggs, but what makes this tangy? The mustard? The vinegar? My mom used mustard in hers but not vinegar so I’m guessing it must be the vinegar, Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. rochelle haynes says:

    I never had this may be i will try this.

  18. Would you explain, if you know, what the vinegar is supposed to do? I read all the comments hoping that someone might have something to say about it.

  19. I like your recipe-I’ve heard people putting vinegar in it but never sugar. Sounds interesting. I use dijon mustard in mine, gives it a little more zip.

  20. Dorothy Teel says:

    This sounds like a good recipe, I have never put vinegar in my yolk mixture, but my daughter in law does and she makes excellent “angel eggs” she will not call them deviled eggs. Thank you for sharing with us.

  21. gianna borden says:

    i love deviled eggs! never had them tangy though so will have to try this! thanks!!!

  22. never tried deviled egss but sounds cute

  23. Paula Morgan says:

    This is exactly how I make mine, but I don’t add any vinegar to mine. I would think they would tend to get too runny.

  24. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    This recipe has just the right amount of sweet and tangy. I usually don’t add vinegar because my husband is allergic to it., but the vinegar would make it more tangy than lemon juice

  25. These look awesome I loved deviled eggs. Except my daughters that is! She made them last year and forgot to add mayo and just added mustard. Lets just say they were really tangy next time I hope she looks up a recipe first! haha

  26. ps I am pinning this so we have one ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. We love deviled eggs. In our house we add horseradish, mayo, salt and pepper rather than doing the mustard thing. They get devoured at pot lucks!

  28. These remind me of the ones my mom and grandma used to make.

  29. I tried the addition of the sugar and it came out very well. The eggs all disappeared (and we don’t have a dog) ….

  33. Rebecca Wilson says:

    These basically sound like mine except we do use Miracle Whip. I guess it is just a matter of what you like or get used to having. I bet yours are just as good. Deviled eggs rule! ๐Ÿ˜€

  34. my gf make these for the holiday and then she made them she made the mexican one two and then it spicy and hot

  44. Oh yum, I have never put vinegar or sugar in my deviled eggs but these sound good. I think I will have to try your version. Thanks for sharing.

  80. ellen beck says:

    We love deviled eggs and I make them quite often sugar and all. I have to admit I do use Miracle Whip rather than mayo (hangs head) because thats the way our family prefers them. The rest is all the same and yours look delicious!

  81. Our family enjoys the most basic deviled eggs. We have them at almost every get-together, and there are never any leftover.

  82. These look delicious! I just recently started eating these and now I can’t get enough of them!

  83. Linda H says:

    I’ve never tried sugar and vinegar in deviled eggs before, but interestingly enough, I add just enough miracle whip to the mayo to make it slightly sweet. I’ll have to try this recipe and see how I like it.

  84. I can’t believe something so tasty can also be easy to make. I’ve read several different recipes. I think the basics are best. Real mayo! No chopped onion or anything else.
