Ron’s World Famous Sweet ‘n’ Sour Deviled Eggs


(Of course these started somewhere, Taste of Home, but I changed a few things)


 12 hard-cooked eggs

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon low calorie Miracle Whip

5  teaspoons sugar

5 teaspoons cider vinegar (this should be the last thing your add, start with 3 and taste)

 1 teaspoon prepared mustard

1+ teaspoons Sweet Relish Juice (a little pickle relish doesn’t hurt)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Paprika and minced fresh parsley



Slice eggs in half lengthwise; remove yolks and set whites aside. In a small bowl, mash yolks with a fork. Add the mayonnaise, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper.  I whip with my blender on medium until smooth. Now add the vinegar. Start with 3 teaspoons, taste, then one more, taste, etc.  Stuff or pipe into egg whites with the big star tip. Garnish with paprika and parsley.     

Yield: 2 dozen.

  • I put them on a deviled egg tray only after sampling at least two for quality control. I don’t cover them right away. I let the fridge dry the filling out a little bit (a couple of hours) and serve with the relish tray.
  • If there is any left over, pop four in your mouth one at a time with diet Mountain Dew and go to work. You won’t need anything else until coffee break. (maybe a tums to break up the vinegar)
  • If there’s never any left over for breakfast, only put out 18 for the other people.
