Basic Deviled Eggs Recipe with Three Variations | Vintage Cooking

deviled eggs recipe

A basic deviled eggs recipe with three variations including pizza deviled eggs, bacon deviled eggs, and peanut butter deviled eggs.

Serve these for brunch, a potluck dinner, or as an appetizer. You can also find more egg recipes here.

This is a fun recipe to get creative with and make your own variations. I have provided three variations here to get your creative juices flowing.

Who would have thought that peanut butter, bacon, and egg would taste good together? Give it a try!

If your children don’t typically like deviled eggs, these fun options might just get them to give eggs another look.

Also, in our family there has also been a long time debate over using Miracle Whip or mayonnaise. Deviled eggs turn out equally good using either. Miracle whip provides more of a tangy flavor and mayonnaise provides a more mellow flavor, so it is really up to you to decide.

You might also like these deviled eggs, made with mayonnaise and relish or these classic deviled eggs.
