Easy Deviled Eggs

After wondering how to make deviled eggs for years, I stumbled across this recipe. It comes from the Durbin Inn, a well-known restaurant in Rushville, Indiana from the 1920s until it closed in the late '70s. The eggs are delicious, and it's easy to make more for larger gatherings. —Margaret Sanders, Indianapolis, Indiana

    These were just right! I added a dash of black pepper to the mix. On a whim, I sprinkled them with smoked paprika. Yum!

    Never heard of putting sugar in deviled eggs. I use apple cider vinegar, salad dressing, mustard, salt and pepper all to taste until I get the consistency I want.

    Good, simple recipe. I double the sugar though.

    This was very easy to make. I followed other reviews and used apple cider vinegar and did not add the mustard. The hubby loved it!

    Used 10 L. Eggs with same recipe above, using apple cider vinegar and less salt. Added c. 1tsp. Worchestershire sauce and c. 1tsp. creamed horseradish for Men's Bridge early afternoon group (12). All gone when I got home.

    Wish I'd read the reviews first--way too much salt, and with the mustard probably didn't need any.

    I thought this recipe was really good. I halved it and made it exactly as written but added just a pinch of salt. Hubby and I both enjoyed it.

    I used red wine vinegar instead of white. Delicious. Thank you, Margaret, for sharing this recipe.
