Curried Deviled Eggs Recipe – A Vintage 1960s Recipe

Curried Deviled Eggs Recipe

Yep. Another deviled eggs recipe on the internet. This recipe for curried deviled eggs is from a 1960s cookbook, Good Housekeeping I believe, that my mother had. Perhaps it’s because these were the deviled eggs I grew up with, but I think they’re the best. I’m always disappointed (and proud at the same time) when I bite into someone else’s deviled eggs and they don’t have the expected flavor these do. They’re really good. I’m making some right now!

Curried Deviled Eggs Recipe

Deviled Eggs

6 hard cooked eggs
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon mustard
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon minced onion
dash of pepper

Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yellow and put into a small bowl. Add all other ingredients to the yellows and mash well. Spoon the yellow mixture into the egg halves. Sprinkle with more curry powder. Refrigerate.
