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.

I like to make really deviled eggs using powdered mustard and sprinkle with cayenne instead of paprika. Not too hot, but nicely spicy.

Sometimes, I like to use Miracle Whip instead of mayo, and add a little sweet pickle relish.

I add finely diced scallion tops and pimentos for color within the mixture.

Hey! You stole my recipe, you know, the one I stole from my own Mother. How did you ever get it?

But seriously, to the version my DD (did I mention that she's wonderful?) posted, try adding a bit of finely chopped corned beef, or minced bacon, or minced salami. Also, a bit of minced onion is good too. If you're adventurous, a little of the juice from a jar of habenaros is very good. Really kicks things up. The brand I like is Freidas. They aren't so vinagary as some others. But be forwarned, those babies are hot. The peppers themselves are sweet in flavor, but will make your teeth, gums, lips, the roof of your mouth, and your throat burn, all at the same time. So if you aren't into hot things, don't use this brand of jarred peppers. The juice from the jar is more mild, and still has good flavor.

I love deviled eggs.

Depending on the budget, deviled eggs are great topped with caviar.

Other pick-me-up additions:

Curry powder mixed with mayonnaise

Top the deviled eggs with tapenade or halved green or black (kalamata) olives.

Meant to mention too - Top with lemon and/or lime zest.

Or - save the cooked yolks for another use, and fill the whites with guacamole (and pico de gallo).

Pesto is very versatile - use any fresh herbs of choice, sun-dried tomatoes, or artichoke lemon pesto.

Another use for cooked egg yokes is to use them as topping for sausage gravy. Just force through a wire strainer (like a tea strainer). Elegant and very tasty.

Thanks for really great ideas! I think I will try serveral of them out. I am going to make 3 dozen easter eggs so I will have some to experiment with.

I thought about making some with crumbled fried sage leaves and a little shallot. I bet saffron would be good too.

Here at Casa de Hoot, Mrs Hoot makes great deviled eggs. I have a few options that she will go along with from time to time. The addition of freshly grated horseradish adds a nice bite. I have convinced her that a good English mustard (something along the lines of Coleman's) is mighty tasty as well. There are a lot of great ideas in this thread.
Shucks, now I am hungry!!!

BTW, instead of paprika,(which I truly like a lot) sriracha as a garnish is colorful and tasty, even though it can be a tick messy. 'Course, messy ain't always a bad thing.
