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." Read More

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. Read More

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.) Read More

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! Read More
