"My very favorite recipe is so simple and can be used at every holiday event. I can't imagine kicking off any family gathering, especially Christmas, without it. We always begin with the cold hors d'oeuvre, deviled eggs, to complement our veggie platters. It wasn't until this year that I realized my recipe is nearly identical to Paula Deen's. So here's the version, courtesy of Paula Deen." -- Melanie Saxton    

  • 7 large eggs, hard boiled and peeled
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • Salt and pepper, for taste
  • Paprika, for garnishing
  • Sweet gherkin pickles sliced, for garnishing
  • Pimentos, for garnishing
  • Directions

    Halve 7 eggs lengthwise. Remove yolks and place in a small bowl.
    Mash yolks with a fork and stir in mayonnaise, pickle relish, and mustard. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
    Fill egg whites evenly with yolk mixture. Garnish with paprika, pickles and pimentos. Store covered in refrigerator.
