An all-time favorite ……  my favorite deviled eggs recipe!

Dviled eggs recipe is so good
This deviled eggs recipe is a Thompson family favorite and a great way to use the surplus eggs we have from our chicken house.

This deviled eggs recipe is a favorite of mine.  It was my Nana’s but it is timeless. We have our own free ranging flock of buff orpington chickens that provide us with a lot of beautiful eggs.

Free Range Chicken Flock
Our chickens free range and are very healthy because of their varied diet.

When the surplus builds up I have to use them up so I make pickled eggs, deviled eggs, quiche, omelets, and more.  Needless to say over the years I have perfected a lot of egg recipes.  Having our own flock of chickens is great.  You can’t imagine the difference in the egg quality unless you see it.  Check out this comparison picture below.

Photo comparing the quality of our eggs from our home flock.
The egg on the right is from our hen house from our Buff Orpington hens. The egg on the left came from a box of “Extra Large” eggs I bought at the local general store.

It’s hard not to have success with any egg recipe with gorgeous eggs like these! Having your own backyard flock is worth the effort and I highly recommend the buff orpington as a breed.  They are the Golden Retrievers of the chicken world – friendly, happy, and very adaptable to the cold weather we have here.

Nana's Deviled Eggs Recipe is an old family favorite that is timeless!

    I love that you added onion in your eggs, they would add just that extra kick! I would love to have my own chickens, I think it would be fun, we move to much in the military… When we are done moving I am totally getting some though :) Thank you for linking up this great Deviled Egg recipe @ Great Idea Thursday’s.

    My old boss used to bring us eggs from his father’s farm all the time. I miss that. They taste so much better than store bought!

    That is the same recipe I use for Deviled Eggs. Once in a while I had a tablespoon of homemade pickle relish. I have been saving juices to make pickled eggs, but keep forgetting to do it. Would love to know how you do yours. thanks for sharing with SYC.

    Oh yum! My husband loves deviled eggs. I’m eager to try your recipe. Your eggs are so much richer looking. Maybe this city girl needs some country chickens!

    I am always looking for a yummy deviled egg recipe…thank you so much for sharing! I can’t believe the difference between store bought and fresh from the farm eggs. I’ve only ever seen the store bought ones…maybe I need to be checking out some of our local Jersey farm stands for my eggs from now on!

    I love deviled eggs. Amazing what a difference. Miss small farm living. Thanks for linking up & sharing your recipe @ Hope to see you again soon!

    Those eggs are too pretty to be devilish! Do you have trouble with fresh eggs not peeling well? I get fresh eggs from the co-op and when I peel them they always make a mangled mess which is why I wind up with egg salad and not deviled eggs.

    • Sheryl T says

      Yes, I used to run into that problem but then learned from an old Amish woman that if you heavily salt the water you boil the eggs in, the fresh eggs will peel easier. Try it…it does work!

  15. says

    Love deviled eggs! Your recipe sounds good. It is amazing the difference in the eggs! Thanks so much for joining the Rock N Share party! Hope to see you again soon! Blessings, [email protected]

      Aren’t the eggs amazing! The store-bought ones look so insipid compared to the vibrant and robust fresh eggs!

  16. says

    I’ve never put onion in my deviled eggs. I’ll have to try that! Sounds like I need to move to an area that will allow us to raise some chickens!

    • Sheryl T says

      Just a touch of onion gives a little depth of flavor to the mix. Having your own backyard flock is worth the effort. Hope you have the chance to do it someday!

  17. says

    Nothing beats a great deviled egg and I love how they have become popular again. So many stores are now carrying them for a quick and easy snack! The fact that you raise your own chickens is so impressive. I just love seeing those little things out in the yard scratching the ground and and break into a sprint when startled!! LOL

    • Sheryl T says

      Chickens are fun to watch! Great for comic relief and the breed that we have, Buff Orpingtons, are very gentle and sweet!

  18. says

    Sounds delicious. We love deviled eggs Thanks for joining us at the Let’s Get Social Sunday linky party. Have a wonderful week. Diane @MamalDiane

    My brother has chickens and we have occasionally got eggs from them but they live too far away to do it on a regular basis. But what a difference fresh makes!

    We loved deviled eggs and this looks yummy! Thanks so much for linking up to the “Making Your Home Sing Monday” linky party today! :)
