    I make my deviled eggs with melted butter instead of mayo. I cannot abide mayo; even the smell of it makes me ill. For any other mayo haters out there, butter works in deviled eggs and vinaigrette works in potato salad.

      I used to be that way with mayo, my whole life in fact, until I made it from scratch for my husband and tried it. Now I think it's perfect with the Deviled eggs and I don't need to add any vinegar or pickle juice. I've never tried with butter...but then again, I'm lactose intolerant, haha!

    I used to mash the yolks with a fork and they turned out okay. However, now I push them through a medium mesh sieve, and they turn out fine and "fluffy" and creamy -- with no lumps. It's a little more effort, but I think well worth it.

      I use an electric mixer to get my egg yolks extra "fluffy". Certainly works better than a fork or mesh sieve, And its quicker.

    Nothing new here. Creamy? As opposed to what? Flaky? Crispy? And, light Mayo? What's the point? Marthaaaaaa! Where are you?

    Got an email titled "How to Make the Creamiest Deviled Eggs" so I thought this recipe would have a technique for making them extra creamy. Disappointed to just find a standard deviled eggs recipe. :(

      I was disappointed, too. I whirl the cooked egg yolks in my food processor (or push through a sieve) so the filling is much creamier rather than chunky. Hope this helps. (I make the entire stuffing in the processor so I dont dirty any unnecessay dishes.

    I made this recipe as directed. I thought it was light, refreshing and very different from my own tried and true recipe that includes sweet pickle relish, mayo, yellow mustard, paprika, parsley and a smidge of garlic powder. By the way, my grandson has never approved of the moniker "devilled eggs," so he gobbles em up and happily refers to them as "double eggs."

    This was delicious! I didn't have white wine vinegar so I used red wine vinegar and it was amazing! Totally yummy!! My new go to recipe.

    I spilled vinegar into it, and replaced the shallot with raw garlic and the mayo with greek yogurt. The yogurt is too liquid and has to be reduced to 1/4 cup if you do it that way. The garlic was fine and not too strong. Don't spill vinegar into it!

    This is definitely a 1-star rating. Didn't like this recipe one bit. With the vinegar and Dijon mustard mix it tasted too vinegar-y and salty. I used premium name brand ingredients and followed the recipe exactly. Disappointing so will be sticking to my tried and tested family recipe that folks rave about. Just wanted to try something different. Won't be making these again.
