This Easy Deviled Eggs Recipe is the perfect side dish for Easter, Thanksgiving or just your usually weeknight dinner. Deviled eggs are a traditional Southern recipe that the entire family will love. With just a few ingredients, you too can have delicious deviled eggs!

Ya’ll, I am so excited to share some news with you all today! My mom will be a regular guest blogger, sharing some recipes from the farm and other fun ‘farm stories’. Her segment will be called “Grammy’s Corner” and hopefully she will share with us a few times a month! Most of my recipes are passed down from my mom and grandmother, so it’s only fitting that she gets to share some of them with you! 


I am excited to be writing on Loving Living Lancaster! I will be sharing some of my Mom’s recipes for you to try along the way.

I grew up on a 300+ acre farm in east Tennessee. Daddy worked an “outside” job plus raising crops on the farm to feed a family of six. Mom was busily raising us kids and trying to feed and clothe us.  I can remember there were few groceries that were bought at the grocery store simply because they raised most everything we needed!

We always had a big garden, with tons of wonderful vegetables that were growing as long as the season allowed from early spring with the leaf lettuce, to the fall with the root crops, cabbage, pumpkins, etc.  Daddy also raised chickens for those wonderful fried chicken meals we had every Sunday after church, with leftovers to have after the evening church service. We almost always could count on Mom’s “deviled eggs,” potato salad, slaw, biscuits and gravy, green beans and some kind of wonderful dessert!


Yes, Mom was busy, but she always managed to feed us well!  After Sunday lunch Mom would pop those leftovers in the oven and leave them there until the evening meal. People now would freak out at the very thought of food ‘sitting out’ that long! I suppose it wasn’t the best way to “hold” the food until needed (not refrigerated.) But, I’m still here! Oh, those were the days!

Today I would like to share with you Mom’s deviled egg recipe, enjoy!

How should I store deviled eggs?

You should always store them in your refrigerator.

How far in advance can I make deviled eggs?

You can make these a day (max 2) in advance! This is a great way to get ahead of your upcoming dinner prep!

How can I make perfect boiled eggs?

I use this tutorial often to make perfect hard-boiled eggs!

Mmmmm, deviled eggs are totally my favorite! I wonder how these would turn out if I replaced the sugar with a little coconut sugar. Time to experiment!! Thanks for sharing <3

I love deviled eggs, but I'm always too intimidated to make them. These really do look easy!

I love deviled eggs! I never thought to put vinegar or sugar in them though. I always just make them with mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, and paprika. I'll have to try this the next time I make them.

Yes, they are delicious this way! I have always wondered why I liked my mom's better than others and I think it's the vinegar and sugar that makes the difference!
