Grandma’s Deviled Egg Recipe:

I’m almost ashamed to admit this.  I’m 34 years old, and until recently, I had never made deviled eggs.  Not for any particular reason. I like deviled eggs, and I always eat them at the holidays.  It must be because someone else always makes them.

We all have our pitch in roles.  Aunt Terri always makes Old Fashioned Pea Salad, and Aunt Peggy makes her famous Cheesy Taco Dip. Megan is in charge of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins and White Chocolate Crack. My oldest sister makes Hot Crab Dip every Christmas, and Mom makes a little bit of everything.  I am mainly in charge of the meat which often is 3-Ingredient Crock Pot Ham or Oven Pulled Pork.

Deviled Egg Recipe Without Relish

Recently, I was recently received a humongous amount of eggs.

With restaurants and schools being closed, it’s been a challenge for the food system to change the way it packages food from large quantities for those businesses to smaller packages for grocery stores. Also, many farmers who sell directly to restaurants have seen their markets shrink. So, this means while eggs might be in short supply in the grocery stores on some days, it doesn’t mean that there Is a shortage of actual eggs.

I decided it was time to remedy my lacking skills in deviled eggs so I went to my Bible of all Cookbooks – Grandma’s personal recipe collection.  Let me tell you a story about these.  When I was elementary-school aged, Mom tasked me with sitting down with Grandma and writing down her favorite recipes.  THIS IS GENIUS!

If your Grandma, Grandpa, Great-Aunt, Mom, Dad or anyone else who is a beloved cook in your life, sit them down and write down all their recipes.  All the recipes in this particular book are the ones that Grandma felt were her best/ favorite/ most popular, and she told them to me from memory.

Thanks Mom.

Notes About Grandma’s Deviled Eggs with Sugar:

  • A mixer is the best way to ensure a smooth filling for these classic hard boiled eggs.
  • Grandma’s recipe is special because they are deviled eggs without relish. Instead, the delicious flavor comes from the combination of vinegar and sugar.
  • Substitute mayonnaise for Miracle Whip if you prefer.
  • The amount of filling may be less or more than the number of yolks you have.  It all depends on how full you fill the eggs.
  • Use a small cookie scoop or a piping bag to place the filling back in the eggs.
  • If you don’t have a piping bag, put the filling in a small plastic resealable bag and seal.  Push the filling to one corner, and snip off a small piece of the end to make the tip. Squeeze this best ever deviled egg filling into the eggs for a pretty presentation.

  1. There’s no way that 1tablespoon of miraclewhip will work with 12 eggs. Recipe says 1/4cup sugar and 1 tablespoon miracle whip. Is that backwards?

  2. If you like REALLY sweet deviled eggs you’ll love this recipe. I’m not used to them being quite this sweet though. I tried this recipe as written and I’d change it to 1/8th cup of sugar instead.

  3. Super easy to do! Yummy taste with the miracle whip. I might cut the salt in half next time since the Miracle Whip and mustard already have salt. I can hardly wait to take them for Easter brunch at my daughter’s. thank you
