WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  • Eggs: Use large, fresh eggs to make our deviled eggs recipe.
  • Dijon Mustard: Dijon is tangy and spicy, and it flavors the egg mixture well. Go with traditional mustard if you want a more classic color and flavor.
  • Mayonnaise: I live in North Carolina, so Duke’s Mayo is the only option (if you know, you know)!
  • Pickle Brine: Pickles are serious business in our home, and so is the brine they pickle in. Find the best pickles in the deli section of grocery stores, and if you want that good-good, use brine from Grillo’s Pickles.
  • Smoked Paprika: Paprika flavors and adds and a nice smoky finish to the deviled eggs.
