No relish but I always use pickle juice in my deviled eggs regardless of what decorations or add-ins are present.

egg yolks
dry mustard
Mayo (but not much)
dill pickle juice to achieve the right texture.

The pickle juice delivers a boat load of flavor including salt.

A squidge of anchovy paste is good in devilled eggs.

Having said that, to misquote Shirley Conran, life's too short to stuff eggs.

I was going to say with pickle relish but after seeing all these variations I think I'm going to have to start experimenting. I do know I'm not a fan of the egg yolk mixed with just mayo and s&p. If that's as exciting as it's going to get then I'd rather just eat a hard boiled egg with salt and a glass of milk. The yolk tastes stronger that way.

Deviled eggs can also be a heartier addition to a salad plate or picnic if filled with crab, tuna, shrimp, chicken liver pate etc.

For a picnic I like to use medium sized eggs and sandwich two halves together after they have been filled.

I need to boil a few eggs!

I just add whatever I feel like, okay, there's always mayo and mustard powder, but I usually choose from: garlic powder, onion powder, fresh minced garlic, fresh minced onions, Worcestershire, fish sauce, hot sauce, celery seeds, and allspice. I'm going to have to add horse radish to that list. I usually sprinkle hot paprika on top.

Now I want devilled eggs.

I once was out of mayo and I used softened butter instead. They were delicious mixed with a little curry powder and fresh snipped chives.

Lots of great ideas.
I will get a tube of anchovy paste.
Any brand recommended? Anything I should know when purchasing anchovy paste?

I have bought different brands and they were all good. The ingredients were: anchovies, olive oil, salt.
