I thought the filling for these eggs was way to salty! The flavors from the other ingredients just didn't come through that well. I will probably not try this recipe again.

I made these for a BBQ last night and there were none left (everyone liked them), but I wouldn't add as much salt next time. To me they were too salty.

This is the only deviled egg recipe that I make. I can never seem to make enough. They really go fast...never any leftovers. This is now a family heirloom recipe for us. That good!

This recipe is always a hit. Never any left - surprisingly, all the guys at a picnic, tailgate, cookouts - always love 'em. Very easy to make.
