Sweet Pickle Deviled Eggs

Sweet Pickle Deviled Eggs@NancyCreative.com

I’ve made deviled eggs several different ways, but never with sweet pickle relish. I know lots of people make it that way, so I decided to give it a try. The pickle relish gives these eggs a good flavor and the pickle taste is mild, so you don’t need to worry about it being too overpowering. I originally made these deviled eggs for a baby shower and everyone really liked them!

You can spoon the egg yolk mixture into the egg white halves or pipe it in–I piped it in and that worked out pretty well for my first time doing it!

SWEET PICKLE DEVILED EGGS by NancyC

Makes 24 deviled egg halves

  • 12 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1/2 cup regular or light mayonnaise (you can use a little more if you want a creamier mixture)
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash of pepper
  • dash of paprika for egg mixture, and more for sprinkling on top
  • Optional: dash of onion powder and/or garlic powder
  • 3 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish or finely chopped sweet pickle (drain or squeeze out any excess liquid)

Slice the hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise and remove yolks; set egg white halves aside.

In small bowl, mash egg yolks and then add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and paprika, stirring mixture well (if using onion and garlic powder, add these in, too). Add in the sweet pickle relish, blending everything well.

Spoon egg yolk mixture into the centers of the egg white halves (or you can pipe the mixture in). Garnish with a light sprinkling of paprika, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Deviled eggs are great for a summer picnic or potluck, so hope you get a chance to try these out this summer! What special add-ins do you like in your deviled eggs?

Enjoy your 4th of July weekend!
