Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad


deviled-egg-macaroni-salad

Susan from Susan Loves Books (click for link to her blog!) was asking about my  Deviled Egg Potato Salad yesterday. It is actually macaroni salad that I made but I thought what a great idea! So, next time I am making this as potato salad. See inspiration for different dishes comes from all sorts of places!

How do you make your Deviled Eggs? Does your family love them? Then how about making them into your macaroni or potato salad? It is very easy to do. Whether your family likes them sweet with a bit of sweet pickle relish or sour with a bit of dill weed or dill pickle juice, plain with mustard is up to you! Be creative!

Verdict:

I didn’t sprinkle Paprika over my salad as my family doesn’t like Paprika over their eggs so I left it off.  This is how I make my Deviled Eggs for my family. Use your recipe and add it to macaroni, potatoes and mayonnaise for a delicious salad!

Remember you want a high egg to pasta ratio so it has more egg taste and is not all pasta.

I served this dish with Oven Slow Roasted Ribs and Baked Beans for a perfect picnic!

Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Time: 30 minutes includes cooking pasta and eggs
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1 (12 oz) box pasta, your choice
  • 8 hard-boiled eggs, cooked, peeled and chopped
  • 2 – 2 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar, white or apple cider
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • your choice: diced onions, chopped celery, diced red peppers, sweet pickle relish, dill pickle relish, paprika or Cayenne pepper

Directions:

  1. Stir together pasta, eggs, mayonnaise, mustard and vinegar in a large bowl. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed.
  2. Stir in your add-ins as desired. Keep tasting and adjusting to what your family prefers. Mine likes sweet so we use more sweet pickle relish and no onions for my girl. 🙂
  3. Serve immediately or chill until serving. Sprinkle with paprika or Cayenne pepper just before serving if desired.

  2. O. M. G. You are killing me!!! Genius!!! I always make my deviled eggs with MIRACLE WHIP…you soulless Mayo folks. 😉 Perhaps it’s the deviated septum but mayo tastes like straight up chalk to me, in anything. I have to have that punch that only miracle whip can bring to the table. Then of course I add a splash of dijon.

      Thank you! I used to be a Miracle Whip girl but changed about 10-12 years ago when they changed Miracle Whip. It no longer tasted the same and I moved on to mayo.

    This looks delicious! I always use garlic salt in my devilled eggs, I’d probably add it to this too.
