I substituted fresh lemon juice for the vinegar, added parsley, Hellman mayo, yeooww mustard and no shallots. It was very good and I have made them several times to share with friends!

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 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.

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 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.

Best deviled eggs I've ever made! A few tweaks... I sauteed the shallots in butter, used fresh horseradish instead of Tabasco and champagne vinegar instead of white. I put the sauteed shallots and horseradish in Cuisinart so they were very finely minced and then added all the other ingredients to the Cuisinart. FAB-ulous!

I made these as part of my 6 types of deviled eggs for christmas. They didn't go over very well. That may have been my fault. I may have splashed a bit too much vinegar in the recipe. I used 6 eggs instead of 8 and tried to eye-measure the ingredients. won't do that again.

The eggs will turn out perfect if you let them sit in the hot water for longer -- like 20 to 25 minutes.

The recipe worked great for me! I boiled just a little longer than the recipe said to. The shell peeled right off and the mixture is DIVINE! I have friends who don't like spicy so I didn't add the tabasco. I will next time, though.

This recipe did not work at all. The eggs were not cooked, even the whites. I used large eggs and they all fit in one layer in the bottom of my pan, I brought it to a rolling boil, and then took it off the heat for 13 minutes. I then drained it under cold water, and placed the eggs in the refrigerator once cold. I had a terrible time peeling them, in fact they basically fell apart. I put all eggs in a bowl, microwaved them for 3 minutes to cook the yolks to be solid, and made potato salad.

I use Honey Mustard salad dressing instead of mayo and mustard. Garnish with pimento or capers.

This recipe is good if you like the overpowering taste of vinegar, Dijon mustard, and onion... I thought this recipe was grotesque, I wanted Deviled eggs soo bad and this recipe ruined my night!

has anyone substituted apple cider vinegar for white wine vinegar, or just omitted the vinegar?

I only added the mayo, mustard, salt, pepper from the recipe but I added a pinch of curry powder to the mixture and garnished with a tiny sprig of dill and a sprinkling of paprika. Amazing!
