I don't eat sweet deviled eggs. Here's my recipe for Deviled Eggs Pomona, my own recipe.

12 relatively soft hard cooked eggs
6 dashes Tabasco (original)
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp Grey Poupon Mustard
Hellman's or Best Foods or homemade mayo
Salt

Slice eggs and transfer yolks to a small bowl. Add Tabasco, vinegar, and mustard; blend until smooth. Then add salt and mayo in alternating small amounts until reaching correct taste and texture. This recipe assumes the use of extra large eggs. If you're using different or unsized eggs you'll need to adjust the number. The apple cider vinegar imparts a delightful hint of smokiness.

There's a reason I call this dish Pomona; does anyone know what it is? If you don't see it you'll kick yourself when I supply the answer. Hint: it has nothing to do with the city of that name.

I've made deviled eggs using all sorts of ingredients; these are the best.
I completely agree, they are two different dishes. I also like green onions in egg salad.

To me, paprika adds negligible taste to really pretty much anything it's in. I've had it as a garnish, as an ingredient, I've had well-made Hungarian dishes, paprikash, etc. It looks pretty, but the taste doesn't add much, to my palate.

Try better paprika. Supermarket paprika is bland, but good fresh hot paprika is quite spicy, and smoked paprika is unbelievable!

I knew you were gonna say that, but no...I've tried quality spices and entrees from quality chefs, and I don't get any spices at the supermarket...it's just not "my" flavor.

Inasmuch as I don't have my own personal spice trader roving the seven seas I'm limited to ordinary spice retailers whether they be supermarkets or mail order houses. Where do you two buy your spices?

If you have the address of Imre in Hungary or Diego in Spain please post it.

There is dry mustard in it, but don't knock the ketchup until you try it. My DH hates ketchup, but he looooves the deviled eggs.

I make my egg salad and deviled eggs the same way. Mash the yolks with stone ground mustard, touch of garlic aioli, touch of cayenne and parsley. For deviled eggs, I sprinkle/dust with smoked paprika on top.
