Classic Deviled Eggs

Jessica Braider
One of my family's favorite dinners is Appetizer Night, when I turn the bits and pieces we have left in the house into a meal of small bites. Very likely the most popular of all options that are usually on the table is these deviled eggs.

  • Add the mayonnaise, mustard, relish (optional), salt, and pepper to the yolks and mash them together with a fork until they are creamy and smooth.
