Classic Deviled Eggs

This is our family recipe for Classic Deviled Eggs.  I can still remember my grandma bring plates of these and big bowls of potato salad to every family gathering!  The deviled eggs never made it to dinner time because the whole family would descend on the plate and absolutely devour them.  I think my Grandma was just happy we didn’t attack the potato salad at the same time and had a modicum civility to wait and actually use forks to eat it at the dinner table! LOL 😉 Classic Deviled Eggs are a snap to make!  You hard boil...
