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
  • Paprika

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