Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad - A Guest Post by MiMi

     There was a recipe for deviled egg macaroni salad in a magazine I was reading.  My family really likes the deviled eggs that I make so I decided to create my own deviled egg macaroni salad that would highlight the flavors that they all love.
   I brought it to two different cookouts and was asked for the recipe.  When KC had us over for his bacon explosion, I decided to make this to go with it.  Now the friends and family that asked for the recipe will have it.  I decided to keep it plain so that everybody would eat it.  Each of my children have different things they won't eat.  This was a safe bet, but it would be fun to add a variety of ingredients to this base recipe.  Celery, cheese, cheddar cheese chunks, onions and cucumbers are just some of the ideas I have.  I think it would be fun to change up the seasonings to fit the dish you are serving with this also.  Some ideas are: onion powder, garlic powder, dillweed, seasoned salt or Cavendar's seasoning.  The "pastabilities" are endless.


Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad


1 lb. macaroni noodles or small shells
12 hard boiled eggs
1 cup mayonaise
2 T mustard
2 T vinegar
2 T sugar
1 tsp each salt, pepper, paprika

  1. Cook and drain the pasta according to the directions on the box. Soak in ice water to cool it down before you mix the other ingredients into it.
  2. Dice the eggs. I pushed them through a cooling rack that has a square grid on it.  It worked really well and is a lot faster than dicing them by hand.
  3. Drain the pasta and put in a large bowl.  Stir the remaining ingredients together.  Add mayonnaise mixture and the hard-boiled eggs to the noodles.  Stir and chill until ready to serve.

  1. Oh my! I love deviled eggs. Like so much that I used to make them for an after school snack growing up! I will try this salad for sure. I love the trick you showed about the cooling rack to dice/cut the eggs up. Never knew that, so clever. Have a great day!
