This Church Picnic Deviled Eggs Recipe is a classic deviled eggs idea that doesn't use pickle relish which can make the egg filling more runny. For this classic deviled eggs recipe well drained finely chopped bread and butter sweet pickles are used. Other ingredients you will need for this simple recipe idea include cooled hard boiled eggs, real mayonnaise or Miracle Whip whichever you prefer, finely chopped onion, yellow mustard, and some smoked paprika. There is something about deviled eggs that reminds us of grandma, one of those recipes you might find whenever you went to visit. Inside the eggs is the creamy mixture that you just can't resist, and the smoked paprika offers a nice splash of color to the yummy appetizer. Once the eggs have been hard boiled, you can cool them a bit and then carefully peel them. Then cut them in half lengthwise. Remove the egg yolks and transfer them to a bowl. Find a nice serving plate and place the egg white halves on the plate. Then in the bowl mash the yolks well with a fork, then add the mayonnaise, sweet pickles, onion, and mustard. Mix these ingredients well. Taste the mixture and adjust ingredients to taste, you may need a little more mayonnaise or some salt and pepper. Then divide the mixture evenly amongst the egg white halves and sprinkle with the smoked or regular paprika. You can either serve these deviled eggs immediately or cover and chill until ready to serve. Deviled eggs are best when served the same day as they are made.

Along with tasting good the nutritional value of an egg is high. Eggs are an excellent source of protein, iron, calcium and vitamin A. It seems these days it's not always easy to know the best eggs to buy. If possible, it's always a good idea to try and buy cage free eggs. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires that when eggs are labeled free range that the egg producers be able to demonstrate that the egg layers have access to the outdoors. While this doesn't necessarily mean the hen has a lot of time, outdoors it is a step in the right direction. Many egg producers label their eggs as cage-free in addition to, or instead of, free-range meaning they are not raised in restrictive cages and have better quality of life.

To make paprika sweet peppers are smoked and then dried to produce a distinctive sweet and smoky flavor. You can sprinkle paprika on chicken, fish, pork, potatoes, and rice for vibrant color and taste. You can also sprinkle or rub paprika over chicken or fish before cooking. Paprika can be added in small amounts to soups, stews and sauces. For a deep, smoky paprika flavor sprinkle on deviled eggs and spiced nuts.Thank you to Melissa for sharing this church picnic deviled egg recipe on the "Chin Deep" recipe site.
