Love Deviled Eggs?
Looking for a simple easy deviled egg recipe?
I’m always amazed at the unwavering popularity of deviled eggs.
While you may consider them old fashioned, they are always one of the first things to disappear at a party, potluck, or picnic.
When it comes to deviled egg recipes, I’m with Marion Cunningham who states in her book, Learning to Cook with Marion Cunningham “Less is Best with Deviled Eggs.”
There are lots of deviled egg recipes that call for fancy fillings and we’ve included a few here if you are in the fancy is better camp.
But try this simple deviled egg recipe recipe first and see if you don’t agree that sometimes simpler is better.

Simple Deviled Egg Recipes
- 6 hard boiled eggs, peeled**
- 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon mustard, grainy or dijon
- 1 teaspoon vinegar (of your choice)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Paprika for sprinkling on top (if desired)
- Slice the eggs in half lengthwise.
- Scoop out the yellow yolks into a small bowl and mash them with a fork until they are smooth and paste like.
- Add the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper and stir until blended and creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings to suit your tastes.
- Divide the filling evenly into the hollows of the egg whites with a spoon heaping it slightly. (Alternatively scoop the filling into a heavy-duty plastic bag. Press the filling into a corner of the bag and then snip off the corner and use it like a pastry bag to squeeze the mixture attractively into the hollows of the egg whites.)
- Sprinkle with paprika if desired. Serve on a platter.
