by chefmancave

Paula Deen deviled eggs are a holiday favorite. See what Paula puts in her Southern style recipe. So simple even a computer geek can make them. We have pictures to prove it.

As the holidays approach, many people turn their attention to cooking. Thanksgiving, holiday gatherings and company potlucks will shine brighter with a plate of Paula Deen deviled eggs. Often referred to as the Mother of Southern Cooking, Paula Deen’s recipes contain heavy doses of butter and cream. While these ingredients lead to much criticism from healthy living experts, there is no doubt that her recipes are delicious.

How Hard is a Hard Boiled Egg?

For the lucky people who make perfect hard boiled eggs every time, you can ignore this section. However, I fall into the other category. I have tried several gadgets and gimmicks but still fail to cook a decent hard boiled egg. As I prepared myself for the Paula Deen deviled egg challenge, I ran across this simple video. I followed it carefully. I succeeded.

The Final Result

Paula Deen Deviled Eggs

Here we are. Compare the pictures below. Chef ManCave - the computer geek from Detroit versus Paula Deen - the Mother of Southern cooking. No doubt who the victor will be but hopefully my efforts will score a few points with the judges. What is important to see though is that even kitchen challenged people can create these tasty appetizers.

Cook well, Eat well, Live Well…

I am in the midst of doing a Paula Deen tribute. Every weekend, I make one or two Paula Deen recipes. It usually starts with going to the store and buying more butter!!!

Oh! Deviled eggs!!! And home made over some fancy-shmancy TV chef any day, even if you did follow her recipe.

I have always preferred a touch of mustard. I will tell you that the sweet chili relish was a big winner. It is much more expensive than regular sweet relish but it certainly gave my eggs a nice "kick".

What did you think of "my results"? Good, bad or indifferent?

We have deviled eggs over here too. They're good, and an easy-to-make appetizer.

I've had deviled eggs with mustard added, and they were delicious.
