Do you like your deviled eggs sweet or savory?
My mom has always made deviled eggs on the sweet side. I knew of no other way. She made them with sweet relish, a little mustard, mayo, and 1000 Island dressing.
It wasn’t until I went to a friend’s house that I was introduced to the more savory side of deviled eggs. I remember seeing the eggs thinking ‘oh boy’, I can’t wait to eat them and promptly put 3 on my plate. I took a big bite, half the egg, and almost spit it back out. It was different. It’s not what mom makes, I thought! Yes, I was polite and ate the rest of them but I did not like them. They were made with a lot more mustard and vinegar. EW!!
So from that point on, I knew not all deviled eggs were created equal.
Let’s get to the recipe. Oh, and I usually don’t measure anything because I have been making them so long but the ingredients vary anyway depending on how many eggs you boil.
- 7 Eggs
- 2-3 Tbsp. Sweet Relish
- 3-4 Tbsp. Mayonnaise
- 2-3 tsp. Thousand Island Dressing
- ½-1 tsp. Mustard any kind
