Deviled eggs are a classic for so many different cultures. Italians mix their filling with tuna, Greeks mix theirs with olives, and the south mixes theirs with relish! If you’re a relish person, you will love this version of deviled eggs, and if you’re not a relish person, I encourage you to give this a go anyways because the flavor combination of everything in these deviled eggs and the relish is phenomenal. Truly one of a kind.
Serving deviled eggs at picnics and cocktail parties is a very regular thing for Americans, but this classic finger food did not originate in the United States. Although they weren’t prepared the way we know and love today, the roots of modern-day deviled eggs are traced back to ancient Rome. These little delicacies are also sometimes called Russian eggs, using red caviar or anchovies.
Long story short, there’s probably a bazillion variations for deviled eggs throughout the internet. BUT, this is the best relish deviled egg recipe you’re going to come across. Why may you ask? Well, I used a secret ingredient in these deviled eggs. And that is… drum roll please… BUTTER. And not melted butter, but softened, room temperature butter. It provides a creamy, velvety addition to the filling. Whatever you do, do not skip the butter in this recipe.
