Ingredients for Easy Deviled Egg Recipe
The easier the recipe, the better which is why I make a super simple deviled egg recipe. These are the ingredients you will need for these deviled eggs.
The basic ingredients to make a deviled egg with relish recipe are:
- Hard-boiled eggs - No way around it, hard boiled eggs are essential for deviled eggs. I recommend Large Eggs that are two weeks old or older. PS - Eggs last way past their expiration date.
- Dijon mustard - Any mustard will work, my favorite for deviled eggs is dijon mustard because it is a lighter flavor. Spicy brown mustard could be a change-up and regular yellow mustard works just fine too.
- Sweet pickle relish - Whether it is homemade or store-bought pickle relish, you will want some sweet pickle relish. If you only have dill, add a little sugar to the recipe. Only have whole sweet pickles? Chop them up and use them.
- Mayonnaise - I don't ever have less than two containers of mayo in the fridge at any time. If you are more of a Miracle Whip salad dressing person, you can substitute that for mayonnaise.
- Salt and Pepper
- Paprika - Optional for sprinkling on top.
