A summer cookout isn’t complete without Deviled Eggs. I’ve been making this recipe for years, starting when I was a little girl helping my mom scoop out the egg yolks and mashing them up. My mom modified this recipe from an old Betty Crocker book and I’ve been making it ever since.

This is really the best ever Deviled Eggs recipe. Seriously. Whenever I make these, people ask me for the recipe and rave about how delicious they are. And with a few simple ingredients, they’re super easy to make too.

I use Miracle Whip (as I do for my potato salad) but if you’re not a Miracle Whip fan, don’t let that turn you away. You can use regular mayonnaise instead. Although, you should know that I’ve had some New Englander friends (most people around here don’t use Miracle Whip) be amazed because they normally don’t like Miracle Whip, but loved these deviled eggs!

NOTE: If you use regular mayo and NOT Miracle Whip, decrease the amount of salt by half. If you use the full amount of salt, it will taste too salty. (I figured this out after experimenting with different mayonnaises and confirmed what some of you in the comments have said – this original recipe is too salty with regular mayo.) Miracle Whip has added sugar and the salt cuts that down, hence why the higher amount of salt works. (I’ve updated the recipe card to reflect this note too.)
