Just about every Southerner I know loves deviled eggs. Actually, I can’t think of anyone I know (southerner or not) that doesn’t!
Now, “classic” to me means the eggs have what I consider the basics: mayonnaise, mustard, sweet pickle relish and some spices. Just like my mama always makes and like my grandma made.
I’ve probably eaten them prepared like this at every holiday dinner and family reunion that I’ve ever been to… they’re a staple at gatherings.
How Long Do These Last?
Serve immediately, or store covered in the fridge for no longer than two days before serving.

- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
- 1 tablespoon spicy mustard
- 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Paprika and chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
- Remove yolks from eggs and place in a medium bowl. Mash yolks with a fork until crumbly.
- Add mayonnaise, relish, mustard, onion powder, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
- Spoon mixture into egg whites, or place mixture into a piping bag (or Ziploc bag with the corner tip cut off) and squeeze into egg whites.
