I love the traditional classic version of deviled eggs with green onion and paprika but I've never used vinegar before... what does the vinegar do? Blue cheese and bacon crumbles sound like an amazing way to go but I'm not too sure how I feel about the cheese and jalapeno. Having said that though, maybe jalapeno and lemon rind would be a super bright and flavorful way to liven up your taste buds...yum!

I love deviled eggs. We made some as a snack before Christmas lunch was ready yesterday. Here is a picture of them! I take out the hard yolks and mix them with a combination of mayonnaise and tomato ketchup. They are really yummy. Making hard these is easier than you think.

Deviled eggs are a great side dish, even for Thanksgiving dinner. Sometimes I make the deviled eggs, then chop them up to make an egg salad for sandwiches or as a spread with crackers. I know some people put pickle relish in their deviled eggs, but I choose to leave that out of my recipe.

I'm using not a fan of deviled eggs, but this recipe looks delicious!

This recipe looks great and easy. I love deviled eggs and my oldest daughter enjoys them as well. I usually let the eggs sit in the hot water for 20 minutes though. Is that too long? 12 minutes just seems not enough time. I'll have to try it and see if they come out better. I also like to mix things up a bit and garnish with dill instead of paprika...just for something different.
