GG's Deviled Eggs

I never really knew how much I liked Deviled Eggs, until I had GG's. My stepmom- who my kids call GG- makes fabulous deviled eggs. I requested them for our Easter get together, and told her that I was going to take pictures of her doing it and post it. I have never attempted deviled eggs before- OK, that's a lie. I did one time, and they were almost unedible... So I needed to watch her do it- I'm a visual learner.
The prep:
boiled eggs, yolks removed and cut in halfyolks smashed with fork, seasoned with salt and pepper
The filling:
mayo (Or miracle whip), mustard, chopped sweet pickles, finely chopped onion
salt and pepper, and vinegar (not pictured)Miracle whip (about 1/2 cup for 14 eggs- 28 halves), mustard (1 tsp.), vinegar (JUST a splash)
Mix wellAdd mayo mixture to yolks
Add chopped sweet pickles (1/4 cup), and onion (just a tsp or 2)
Season with salt and pepper, mix well
Fill in egg halvesThere you have it!!!
I had always heard of adding sweet relish, and then after thinking about it, I like the sweet pickles by themselves better. The relish is very runny, and would make the filling more liquid, which makes it harder to fill and work with. I think the sweet pickles is the way to go!
