My Mom's Deviled Eggs

Growing up I was the only one in my family besides my mom who liked anything with mayo in it. She and I were big fans of macaroni salads, potato salads and anything of the sorts.

Our favorite probably being Deviled Eggs.

This recipe for Deviled Eggs is something I started making with her when I was super  young. In fact there wasn't a time when I don't remember helping assemble them. Either I was in charge of peeling the boiled eggs or mixing up the yolks.

I think everyone has their own way of making their Deviled Eggs. This was is always a big hit at every BBQ, family get together, pot luck style dinner.


12 hard boiled eggs
1/2 cup mayo (the real stuff)
1 tbs of mustard
1 can of deviled ham (about a 1/4 of a cup)
Pinch of paprika
Sliced scallions (optional)


Peel your eggs. Slice them in half length wise removing the yolks.

Place all of your yolks in a medium mixing bowl and mix together with the remainder of your ingredients.

Pipe or spoon into your egg whites.

Dust with some paprika and garnish with some sliced scallions
