If I am lucky enough to live to be 100, there is a deviled egg story I will never forget. Sharon, a friend of mine, told me about the first time she ever fixed deviled eggs that makes me practically cry (from laughing so hard) every time I'm fix them. She said she went to a holiday dinner with a plate of deviled eggs. Well, when everyone bit into them, they got the surprise of their lives! Sharon didn't realize people sprinkled Paprika on their eggs...she thought it was cayenne pepper! Woo hoo! She set some tongues on fire! Love it!
This recipe is one of those that my Mother, who hates to share recipes, finally gave up. She used to make a variation with chopped celery instead of pickle relish that I loved. However, my bunch isn't crazy about celery, so this is our official recipe.
