I never liked deviled eggs before this recipe - they are great - quick tip - put the yolk mixture in a ziplock bag - squeese the air out - seal and cut a corner off & use as a pastry bag - the eggs will look great!!Read More

After reading the reviews I cut the salt by 1/2. The second time I made them (if this gives you a clue as how much I enjoyed them) I added 1/2 of the ground cayenne pepper into the yoke mixture and then sprinkled the other half over the top of the finished product. That raised my personal rating from 4 to 5 stars as each egg was more consistant in "heat."
Due to a previous review saying they were too salty, I reduced the salt by half. Still salty!! You might want to add a tad more mayonnaise also. Otherwise were good.
These had just the right kick for the guys' Monday night football entourage. I did however add about a tablespoon of white vinegar to the yolks, and used white pepper vs. the black. Good eggs, I would use again (even my 12 yr. old liked them.)
I made these eggs and had it revised for servings of 30 which enclude 15 boiled eggs, however, I thought it was tooo salty.
These were TERRIBLE! My husband is not a picky eater at all and he loves deviled eggs, but he only took one bite. We both thought these were just awful. Way too salty!
So-so. I've had much better. Would not make these again.
Good. Didn't use salt & next time I will mix the Cayenne into the eggs.
WAY too salty
These were great and just the perfect amount of spice...THANKS!
Wonderfully simple recipe. But, to take it to the next level I substituted the mayo for wasabi mayo. Yumm!
i did exactly what the recipe calls for, but it was way to salty. i couldnt even eat them they were so salty. people might want to lower the amount of salt before wasting their eggs/yolks on this.
I never liked deviled eggs until I tried these. I made these for a bridal shower and now everyone always asks for them.
This was a great deviled egg recipe. I was looking for a way to spice up the old standby and this was perfect. I don't like adding salt to almost all of my recipes, so I didn't and it was perfect.
WAY WAY WAYYYY too salty!! I would reduce the salt by half or more if you make this. Also I dont really see how just adding cayenne made them Cajun.
good recipe, but definitly different with the spicyness.
This is the best deviled egg recipes EVER. I get rave reviews every time I've made it. NOTE: Salt level should probably be cut in half. Taste the mixture before you load it into the egg whites.
These are really good! I brought them to a family picnic and doubled the recipe, and they were all gone- I was gentle with the cayenne and the salt. I did to taste.
I enjoyed these - definitely added much more cayenne pepper into mixture and on top to make it spicier, as well as some other cajun seasonings.
These were OK. I will keep looking for a great deviled eggs recipe.
I took everyone's advice on reducing the salt. I cut it down to 1/4tsp (and had almost twice the eggs - 10) and it was still grossly oversalted. Had to cut up the whites, mix and serve as egg salad sandwiches so the bread would absorb the salt.
These were way too salty for both me and my husband. Will try again with less salt and more pepper.
The cayenne on top lookes pretty and some may think it's paprika but gives a little kick; I did go light on the cayenne as children will be eating them. I added a little bit of dill in my egg yolk mixture too; I agree that their a little too salty so I'd cut back next time. Thanks
I thought it was perfect. I didn't measure the spices, eye balled them but I know I didn't add as much salt as it called for. I also added cajun seasoning as well. Delicious with a kick! Thanks for sharing!
First batch I followed the recipe exactly and it was WAY too salty!! Second batch, I cut the salt in half and I still thought it was too salty. Next time, if I try this recipe again, I will cut out the salt completely.
Cut the salt and these are fantastic. I added the cayenne pepper into the yolk mixture rather than sprinkle it on top. Everyone loved them. For the few people who wanted them hotter, I sprinkled more cayenne on top.
I made these for a Christmas party and they were a huge hit. Definately will make these again and again !
Really liked this, but I only used 1/4th the amount of salt that is recommended. This is definitely too rich to eat on a daily basis (darn!)
This were very tasty. They were basically the traditional egg with a little bit of heat. I added just a pinch of salt as opposed to the amount listed, used half the cayenne in the mixture, added a few drops of Franks hot sauce and sprinkled with the remaining cayenne on top. Tasty but not extraordinary.
i love these recipes. They are great. Iwould love to me the person who mad them love TCoverFrance8250
Perfect! Something I couldn't mess up and it tastes great.
The thing I learned to cook when I left home for college many (many) years ago was hardboiled eggs. This may sound silly (FYI.. The "Julia Child Method" really does produce the best hb egg - google it, it's kinda lengthy!), but it also illustrates how much I love deviled eggs, LOL. This recipe is pretty much my favorite cold egg recipe (yes, you can make them warm, Mmmm!!!). I like to use a Jalapeno Dijon my sister sends me from Oregon and I also use freshly ground Garlic Pepper; let these chill in the fridge awhile before serving, this really intensifies the flavors.
I tweaked this a bit and it was awesome. I don't like mustard so I left that out and I used Old Bay seasoning instead of cayenne pepper. I brought these to a party and they were gone within minutes.
This was a good recipe, however, I like my deviled eggs alittle creamy. So, I added 2 tsp of pickle juice to the recipe and topped off with Hot Shot. They were great and had a kick to them.
This was good although very salty. I ended up just eating the egg whites after the saltiness became too much to take. I would make this again with no salt and add more cayenne.
these were the best and easiest of all recipes that i looked at. gary
never made deviled eggs before since i don't like them, but my DH loves them. made them with the colored Easter eggs and these disappeared pretty quickly from the fridge! our 3y/o didn't really care for them tho...
I was bored today so I made 4 different recipes for deviled eggs at the same time and had neighbors & friends do a taste test. This one came in 4th. The testers represented a large range of tastes, but no one rated it higher than third. It is too course will all the pepper and dijon, almost gritty, and the flavor is bland. The other recipes in my taste test were "Deviled Eggs" by Barbara, "Deviled Eggs II" by Mary Brotherton, and "Deviled Eggs" by Margaret Sanders. Margaret's were the unanimous winner.
These were so yummy. I made them for my daughter's birthday party and they all disappeared. Instead of cayenne, I used some Tobasco and it gave them a nice little kick. I was out of cayenne so I had to make the substitution....we liked it so well, I'll be sure to do it that way again.
I made the mistake of not reading the reviews first. It was so salty I threw them away. What a waste of time.
way too salty! :(
I love deviled eggs but these are just way too salty. Luckily I tasted the filling before filling the whites. I'll be making more eggs to cut the saltiness.
OMG! They are trying to kill us with salt! Totally ruined 6 eggs and wasted my time. This recipe might be good with less salt, but I'm removing it from my recipe box and looking for a recipe that is good to begin with. I hate wasting time and food!
Too much salt!
This tasted great and was very easy to make. I added a lot less salt and I could have added more mayo to make it more creamy. But oh well. All loved the spice!
Made these for Easter. They were "just alright".
I make these all the time now, my boyfriend loves them to snack on. i add a little more cayenne pepper or new mexico chili powder to spice it up a little more. they are yummy!
i had to use a lot more mayonaise. i also tried some with ranch dressing & lemon/dill powder sprinkled on top!
I really liked these eggs! They had an excellent flavor and my house guests thought they were wonderful as well.
MMMMMMMM....I love deviled eggs AND cayenne pepper, so I knew that these guys were just right for me. I made them for our daughters' birthday party and everyone gobbled them up. I didn't see the need for salt, so I left that out. Wonderful Denyse and "Justin" would be proud!!!!
Good flavor - but WAY too salty. Everyone agreed on that. I also made "Savory Deviled Eggs" and "Deviled Eggs" from this site, and the savory eggs won everyone over!
The eggs were way tooooooo salty. I followed the recipe exactly, and it just did not work out.
These were very good and they came out great but WAY WAY to salty!!! that was the only down fall
TOO MUCH SALT! I did half the salt like the other reviewers said and it was still very salty. Maybe 1/4 the salt????
Love the spice! Went over well with the family.
Simple yet tasty!
These eggs are wonderful!!! Warning! Instant compliments may occur in your immediate vicinity! You will probably want to only use 1/4 teaspoon salt though. DELICIOUS!!!
cut salt by 50%
This is possibly my fourth or fifth time that I've made this recipe! It was so easy to make. Since I like my food quite spicy, I added extra cayenne pepper and the cajun deviled eggs simply taste fantastic.
If you like spicy, you'll love these!
Very good and not too spicy. A nice change.
plain, and not hot at all.
These were excellent and I'm not a huge fan of eggs.
This was a great recipe! I made this recipe as a appetizer for a party. I'm so glad I boiled two dozen eggs, because everyone could not stop eating them. I added Hormel real bacon bits as a garnish. WOW! CimCat
Great recipe, though I did cut down on the salt as recommended by others. Not too spicy either. I would probably add a little more cayenne next time to give it just a tad more zip as I like this spicy!
I omitted the black pepper, as a personal preferance I don't like black pepper and it still tasted good.
I thiought this was a perfect SIMPLE recipe. I would double it thought for a group gathering such as any holiday. Enjoy!
The cayenne really spices the eggs up. A real hit at my last BBQ
Denyse is right... perfectly spiced. Used homemade mayo. (recipe on this site... Whole Egg Mayonnaise.)
Not our favorite. I think this recipe needs more mayonnaise, less salt, and add some garlic powder to better suit our taste.
I added a little creole seasoning and Worcestershire sauce and they were amazing! I left the normal paprika on top as well.
Very good even though I messed up on a few parts. A tip for other newbies like me is to really make sure the eggs are cool or else when you peel them they will fall apart and the shells will be especially hard to take off efficiently. I thought that the Dijon may have been too little but the taste was really evident, so it's enough! Good recipe.
TRADITIONAL DEVILED EGGS WITH A KICK. I LOVED THESE.
I followed other reviewers' advice and used just a pinch of salt instead of the full 1/2 tsp, and they turned out beautiful and delicious.
These eggs were a hit for our super bowl gathering! Will definitely make these again!
These were great, we actually liked them more than the original deviled eggs. I went by the recipe excactly, but the only thing that I changed was the salt, but other than that, they were great!
These were good. I just used a pinch of salt per other reviews. My fiance loved them.
these were good! Even better the next day!
These were great. When I made them, I also added a dash or two of hot sauce to give them a little kick. My whole family loves spicy foods and they were a hit.
I only had 4 eggs on hand, not 6, so my proportions were estimated, so I don't know if the taste was exactly by recipe, but I thought these were great! I skipped the salt, based on other reviewers, and I think that is a good move. My boyfriend didn't believe me when I told him these were not regular deviled eggs until he tried them. They look very much the same with red pepper instead of paprika. However, this didn't seem to be a problem for him.
Will not make again - will go on seaching for the perfect deviled egg for my taste. These tasted mostly of mustard and a bit of heat.
These eggs were very good, but I couldn't taste the cajun spices very much. Maybe it was the brand I used? Everyone loved them, but no one knew they were cajun.
I love deviled eggs made this way. Very tasty!
I love the spice on top, but I'm not a huge fan of the dijon mustard. I switched it for regular mustard and it was amazing!
very good change from the basic egg, a keeper
Very salty. I wouldn't add any salt or maybe just a pinch. Otherwise great, I'll be making them again... with no salt.
Very good, I get requests to make these on special occasions. For my own taste tho, not quite 5 stars.
Yummy! I followed the recipe to a "T". Perfect!
Very delicious. It adds a unique spin to plain deviled eggs.
This recipe is your very basic deviled eggs, with the addition of a bit of spice which isn't normally in them. So, while it tastes just fine, I can't give them my highest rating due to lack of creativity.
way toooooo SALTY!!!!! might make it another time but without the salt.
These were great!!! I followed your recipe all the way until the end and I thought I was done but I forgot to add the cayenne pepper.. My family said they were delicious none the less..
I had never made deviled eggs before and everyone loved them. This recipe was easy to follow
Could not eat them because they were so salty. Also too dry, need more mayo.
Delicious! First attempt at deviled eggs. I made them for a party and they were a hit. Thank you!
