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.
