A deviled egg recipe with a very simple twist. The addition of pickle relish gives these eggs a flavor boost.
Everyone needs a deviled egg recipe in their repertoire. They’re a classic and easy appetizer (or snack) that can be whipped up in not much time.
First off, I want to give you a few tips about boiling eggs. No one wants to spend hours trying to peel the shell of eggs, and here’s how I avoid that: Put eggs in a saucepan, cover with water to about an inch above the eggs. Heat over medium-high heat on your stovetop until boiling and boil for 5 minutes. If you boil eggs too long, you end up with a green ring around your yolk. Once they’ve been boiling for 5 minutes, remove from heat and put the eggs in a bowl of ice water or just place your pan in the sink and run cold water over it for a few minutes until the eggs are cold. I’ve found that if you put your eggs in the fridge to peel later, they’ll be much harder to peel. Go ahead and peel them as soon as they’re cool.
Once you’ve peeled your eggs, it’s time to make the filling! This is a very classic recipe, but I’ve added pickle relish for a sweet and tangy offset, and garlic salt because…well…just about everything tastes better with garlic salt 😉 My favorite is Redmond Real Salt, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand and just add it to taste. I only used a few dashes. The eggs aren’t complete, of course, until they’re garnished with paprika and chives. You can use fresh or freeze dried chives, whichever you have in your kitchen. Enjoy!
