"I made very plain deviled eggs for many years to appeal to my kids. These were very tasty and flavorful and a nice change. I will definitely make these again in the future."

I made them for my in-laws' anniversary party and they were a big hit."

"I thought these had a nice tangy flavor and not to heavy on the spices where you couldn't taste the egg. I will make this recipe again and I also use this recipe just to add flavor to my mayo for sandwiches, etc. and not add the eggs. Great recipe. Thank you."

"Took this recipe for a test drive a while back. Mr and I both agreed that this recipe is a very nice change from both the normal and overly loaded Deviled Egg recipes.

I cut back on the mayonnasie. Used fresh Chopped chives including some of the white part. As well as a dash of Mustard.
It has that Old fashioned taste. Creamy and Good. I'd hands down make them again . I gave them a new look by cutting them in half. Slicing off a small piece from the bottom. They sat perfectly still. I loved the New Look ~ Janie."

"Just made these for our annual church picnic. They got eaten up, but I think the filling would taste better if made the day before and chilled overnight to let the flavors improve. It made enough filling, which I was a little bit worried about."
