Woo, I’ve laid a heavy burden on myself calling these The Best Deviled Eggs. They really are thanks to two special ingredients, pickle relish and light olive oil mayonnaise. Yes the mayo made with olive oil made all the difference. The key to the best deviled egg is that less is more. You don’t need a bunch of ingredients. After Easter, I made our Easter Eggs into deviled eggs. The next day they were all wiped out. My daughter even came home and had deviled eggs for her after-school snack. So I made another dozen. I have loved deviled eggs since I was a kid. My Mom has always made the best deviled eggs, and I wanted to follow in her footsteps but make them a little lower in calories.
I’ve been trying to for a while. I tried my old standby, Greek yogurt, but I did not like the taste of it in the deviled eggs. I picked up a new light mayonnaise at the store that was made with olive oil. That worked beautifully, plus the addition of a love a little tang from pickle relish boosts the flavor. You can sprinkle a little paprika or Cajun seasoning on top. I did not just because my little one might thumb her nose at the spice on top. I personally love a tiny sprinkle of Cajun spices on top. It makes them look a little prettier too. Whether you like a little sprinkle of spice or not, you will love these healthy deviled eggs. Try them and let me know if you agree with me that these are the Best Deviled Eggs.
