The Deen Bros. Lighter Traditional Southern Deviled Eggs

  • Prep time: 20 min
  • Cook time: 15 min (Standing Time)
  • Servings: 12


  • 12 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons reduced-calorie mayonnaise
  • 11/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Chopped pimentos
  • Sweet gherkin pickles


Place the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Immediately remove from the heat. Cover, and let stand 15 minutes. Drain; run under cold running water.

Peel the eggs and halve lengthwise. Remove the yolks. Press 6 of the yolks through a sieve into a small bowl. Reserve the remaining yolks for another use. Stir in the mayonnaise, relish, mustard, and spice blend until well mixed. Spoon the mixture into the egg white halves. Place the eggs on a plate, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and chill until ready to serve. Garnish with the pimientos and serve with the pickles on the side, if using.

Test Kitchen Tip
Store the remaining cooked egg yolks covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Use them to sprinkle on fresh steamed asparagus or other vegetables, or in salads.
