Deviled egg variations

I like deviled eggs but I am tired of my old stand by. I make them with mustard and mayo and go heavy on the mustard. I like them a little tangy and a little salty too.

I am looking to get away from the classic way this year and would welcome any recipes.

I have found one with choped whole eggs,cucumber,smoked salmon and fresh dill. This looks pretty good to try but I am interested in what everyone does.

Happy Easter weekend and thanks for any recipes.

not exactly a variation but I made my own mayo for my deviled eggs today and it makes a world of difference. Also put scallion, mustard, lemon juice, and cilantro in it. Seasoned with salt and pepper and sumac.

I usually add to my devilled eggs:

mayo
mustard powder
celery seeds
garlic powder
onion powder
Worcestershire

sometimes add:

a pinch of nutmeg or allspice
smoked paprika
lemon juice or cider vinegar
a few drops of hot sauce
tamari

And top it with a decorative sprinkle of hot paprika

we've been eating devilled eggs a lot lately. my wife and son discovered them recently and can't get enough.

we do the standard mayo and mustard too, and ya gotta have a good dusting of paprika.

i've found different mustards are a good change. we generally use either gulden's spicy brown or maille wholegrain dijon. i've also tried a jalapeno yellow mustard that i can't recall the brand.

I make mine like you do but I use Miracle Whip.No salt. Mustard is salty enough. I sprinkle on Paprika and at Christmas I also use dried Dill to make them festive. I have no desire to try any new recipes. I have eaten some other peoples variations and did not care for them.

I usually just make the classic ones with mayo and mustard!

To shake it up I would stuff them with crab meat mixed into the yolks or make the classic and top them with an asparagus tip.

I usually make them with miracle whip, powdered mustard, a little sweet pickle relish (based on what you said you like I'd recommend dill pickle relish for you) and topper with a little parsley. I've also added a little sriracha and that was pretty good. And I added dill weed to them once and that was really good. I should do that again.
