Best Deviled Eggs

This recipe is from Southern Living, but it just happens to be exactly how I make mine too. Who knew? Do you think they've been spying on me????
Feel free to put your own personal spin on them. Go crazy with toppings! Try adding crumbled or shredded cheeses, diced ham, chopped scallions, a little drizzle of pesto or salsa, or even a little sliver of smoked salmon.
They'll be gone before you know it! Great then!

6 hard-cooked eggs
1/4 c mayonnaise
1 1/2 tbs sweet pickle relish
1 tsp mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Slice eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove yolks. Mash yolks with mayonnaise. Add relish, mustard, salt, and pepper; stir well. Spoon yolk mixture into egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika or add any of your favorite toppings.

For extra fancy eggs, use a piping bag with a decorative tip to fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture. They'll look beautiful when you sprinkle the paprika on top.
