Classic Southern Deviled Egg Recipe

Creamy Southern Deviled Egg Recipe

Living in the south there is nothing better than the Southern Creamy Style Deviled Eggs. Of course since we raise our own chickens this is a classic dish at all our family gatherings. I remember the good ole days when we would gather with friends and families and have potlucks or have church luncheons on Sunday after worship services with the church family. One of the easiest dishes to make for a potluck is deviled eggs.

Now there is many different combination but the southern style straight classic mixture is the one that I still opt out for.

Southern Style Classic Deviled Eggs


  • Six large hard boiled eggs
  • Three tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon of prepared yellow mustard
  • Dash of salt and pepper

  • Boil six eggs till they are hardboiled and remove the shell.
  • Cut the hard boiled egg without the shell in half.

  • Place the mixture in a piping bag with a large round tip. Squeeze the mixture into the hallowed out egg whites. Sprinkle the paprika till pretty and garnish the deviled eggs with a pickle slice.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as well as my family and friends. We would love to hear how you make your family’s favorite deviled egg dishes.


I have always had an enthusiasm for homesteading and for living off the grid even though I live in a combination of country and urban setting. Living in Central Florida north of the big cities we have the best of both worlds, country and the conveniences that a person would have living in a large urban city. I personally have had a concern about our weakening economy and how it effects each and every-one of us. The second thing that I have a concern about is how most of the world view’s our country and what may happen one day here in the United States. My Life Experiences I was raised by parents that grew up during the great depression, they passed onto me what life was like and how people had to live during this time period. My family were farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders, they were raised this way and they passed onto me these qualities. I also have family members that live totally off the grid. They live in the North Woods of Minnesota which is a great location for living off the grid. The Southern Homesteader is a passion of mine, I love passing on and sharing information about cooking, news, being self-sufficient, living off the grid, canning, food storage, budgeting, and much more. Since this blog is a passion of mine I am constantly adding and tweaking this site to be a better resource for you. More About Me I grew up in Northern Illinois farm fields. After spending most of my life in large corporate business I decided to relocate to a small town on the nature coast of Central Florida. This is where I met my wife and between us we have 4 wonderful daughters. We have a small homestead where we raise our chicken and live freely. We also have a bug-out place in the mountains of North Carolina that we call our retreat. We spend time there getting things prepared for all our family members when SHTF. I am blessed with a wonderful family and the knowledge that God has given me so I can pass this along to you the readers. I will never tell what you what to do or what to purchase, I just am offering my opinion. I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you. Always feel free to contact me and drop me a note. I will do my best to respond to your emails in a timely manner. Thank you again, Tom Johnson
