Horseradish Deviled Eggs

People say, "Wow!" when they taste these flavorful tangy deviled eggs. The bold combination of ground mustard, dill and horseradish is so appealing. The plate is always emptied whenever I serve these eggs. —Ruth Roth, Linville, North Carolina

    Excellent! I'm not fan of dill so I substituted celery seed.

    I did not find the horseradish to be overpowering (2 level tablespoons), and, along with the other spices, these made for tart eggs - as deviled eggs should be! (admittedly, I do like spicy foods) Be careful to not add too much mayonnaise (taste along the way) as the mayonnaise tends to lessen the flavor of the yolks), or alternatively, add an extra egg yolk or two. Not the absolute best I have ever tasted, but very good! I will definitely make them again!

    I totally agree with you ladies. 2 Tablespoons is way too much Horseradish. I added a Teaspoon tot he mixture. Then went back for a wee bit more. Love the snap that this one offers. I also topped mine with some cooked bacon and another shake of Dill weed to finish off. Paprika right before serving. Everyone really enjoyed this Different version.TOH VFE.

    I wanted to try something different & found this. I read reviews first. Usually, I make the recipe exactly as written first time, then tweak it, but I thought about the ratio of mayo to horseradish. 1/4 cup mayo to 2 TBSP horseradish is high since 1/4 cup equals 3 TBSP. So while eggs simmered I made the mix but used 1/2 TEASPOON horseradish. When eggs were done, I added the boiled yolks to mayo mix, tasted for seasoning & was surprised it was good. Even more shocked, pickiest eater in house LOVED these.I still prefer my classic ones, but I will make these again. I think they would go well at a Super Bowl party, not so much at a ladies luncheon. I am so glad for other reviewers who pointed out 2 TBSP horseradish could be overpowering. Do what I did, use small amount of horseradish first, then taste to adjust your seasoning.

    The picture does not do this recipe justice. I have been using this recipe for years and everyone that I have made them for love them. Using 2 tablespoons of horseradish would probably be a little bit much. Use 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish per 6 eggs. These things are loved so much that I usually triple the recipe using 18 eggs (makes 36 completed deviled eggs), 3/4 cup of mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons horseradish, 1 1/2 teaspoons of dill weed, 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and garnished with paprika. I have tried adding in relish but in my opinion, they don't turn out as good with relish.

    Way too strong!! I only used half the horseradish the recipe called for and it was still too much!

    Tried this for TG, and first time I've ever had eggs left. Horseradish way too strong of a taste for deviled eggs. No one really liked them except my husband, who likes spicy foods, so will be tossing this recipe.

    Made these for Thanksgiving Day appetizer. Everyone loved them - I used one tablespoon of horseradish, and it seemed to have the right amount of kick.
