I’m sure I’ve said this here at Rhubarb and Honey before, but I’ll say it again … I love eggs. Poached eggs, scrambled eggs, baked eggs, eggs basted in bacon grease, eggs benedict, omelettes, frittatas, and even huevos rancheros … you name the egg preparation, and I’m certain I’ve tried it … and mostly likely loved it.
But, perhaps my favorite egg preparation? Deviled eggs. There’s just something about the combination of the cool, hard-boiled egg white, the creamy, mustardy filling, and a pinch of smoky paprika that I just. can’t. resist. But, my love for deviled eggs goes far beyond the classic recipe … and today, I’m sharing my list of favorite deviled egg combinations with you.
Of course, we have to begin with the classic deviled egg, and this recipe from Simply Recipes is my favorite. A combination of mayonnaise, dijon mustard, shallot, and Tabasco, I think it’s the perfect classic recipe. And no, there’s no pickle relish in the classic recipe I’ve chosen … and you won’t find it in any of the recipes below. Call me names if you will, but I just don’t care for pickle relish in deviled eggs!
Okay, moving on to my favorite deviled egg recipes that go way beyond the boundaries of classic … some are sweeter, some are spicier, some have bacon, and one even contains crushed potato chips, but all are absolutely delicious.

My recipe for smoked deviled eggs was created on a whim, but remains one of my favorite deviled egg recipes to date … smokey, salty, and creamy … it’s a flavor combination that just can’t be beat.
I hope you’ve found a deviled egg recipe you want try … and no matter which one you choose, I’m pretty certain you’ll love them as much as I do!
