I have been making deviled eggs since I was about twelve years old( for DECADES now,lol). My mother's friend used to pay me to make them for her annual Christmas party every year until I left for college. People have always asked for the recipe, but I never wrote it down as this is the type of thing I make by "EYE" based on the amount I need, and I adjust the flavors a bit depending on the known preferences of my guests. I hope this general summary will give any "newbie" a road map to take a chance in her own kitchen and make some killer deviled eggs. There is no right or wrong way. Enjoy!
