Perfectly Simple Devilled Eggs

I figured since I am adding a fancy Devilled Egg recipe to the list, that I have to give you some sort of basic Devilled Egg as well. Since I am in charge of all Devilled Egg making in my house I tried to find something that was similar to what I usually throw together, but with a little something extra to jazz it up. I came across Nicole’s recipe from Pinch My Salt. It is basic enough for my taste bud limited family, but adds a couple of things I have never tried before, but that I am sure will help give it that little something extra I have been looking for. Enjoy!


  • 6 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • ¾ teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • A pinch of salt (optional)
  • Fresh ground black pepper (optional)
  • Smoked paprika (optional)


Cut eggs in half. Arrange egg whites cut side up on a serving plate and put the yolks in a small mixing bowl. Mash yolks with fork then stir in mayonnaise, mustard, and vinegar. Mash and stir all ingredients together well. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired. Spoon a little bit of the mixture into each egg white half, dividing mixture as evenly as possible between the eggs. Sprinkle eggs with smoked paprika if desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes: Mixture may be piped into the eggs using a pastry bag instead of using a spoon. Recipe can easily be doubled. I always make my deviled eggs with Best Foods Mayonnaise and just regular yellow mustard. If you don’t have white wine vinegar, just use your favorite kind or whatever you have on hand. If you don’t have smoked paprika, just use the regular kind. Want something a little different… A little less basic? Check out Green Onion and Oil Devilled Eggs.
