Deviled Eggs Recipe …..Devilishly Good!

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.

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!

  1. Shell eggs and cut in half lengthwise.
  2. Remove yolk and set aside intact whites.
  3. Mash the yolks and add the rest of the ingredients to the yolks. You may adjust the amounts of the ingredients to your taste.
  4. Stuff the egg whites with the yolk mixture. I sometimes do mine with a piping bag to make it more decorative.

    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.
