Recipe: Honey-Infused Deviled Eggs
Here’s a little something you didn’t know about my wife’s family. They used to raise their own honey bees. Yes, it’s exactly as you would imagine. Her dad suiting up in one of those full-bodied bee-proof outfits armed with a smoker to calm the bees when going out to harvest a honeycomb or two. They lived on 20 acres in an area that only has 10 or so neighbors in a 5 mile radius, so there was never a worry about too many bees or not enough food for them. She remembers it bee-ing (see what I did there?) some of the best honey she had ever had.
We still use quite a bit of honey today, whether on toast or waffles in the morning, in a salad with cranberries and chicken or even in a dessert recipe created by my father as a tribute to his favorite performer, Elvis Presley. We typically grab whatever brand honey is on sale, but after recently getting a sub-par batch my wife commented again about the great-tasting honey her father used to harvest. That’s about when we found out about Golden Blossom Honey and their line of regular and organic honey.
A taste on a spoon and Nicole started getting flashbacks (her words, not mine) of the exact taste of her dad’s honey. This was most prevalent when she tried the organic version from Brazil, but loved the smoothness and even flavor of the USA-made (patriotic bees?) Genuine Natural Pure Honey.
One of our favorite recipes to put a dash of natural sweetness is into a simple deviled eggs recipe. Here’s how we make them:
Honey-Infused Deviled Eggs
1 dozen eggs
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Golden Blossom Honey
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
I don’t think I need to explain how to make hard-boiled eggs, so once that is finished and they have cooled, peel the eggs and remove their yolks with a spoon and place in a small mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the paprika) and stir until well blended and smooth. Place egg white halves on plate and fill with yolk mixture. Sprinkle paprika over eggs and serve.
If eggs don’t do it for you, you have to check out the amazing recipe collection over at Golden Blossoms’s website! You might also want to learn more about the differences between their Genuine Natural Pure Honey and the Organic White Forest Honey. I know I never knew there was such a difference.
And so you can taste for yourself the difference good honey makes, we’re giving away a set of both to one lucky SahmReviews reader! Enter below and come back tomorrow for more entries! As a bonus we’ll throw in something to enjoy it with – enough tea to get you through the rest of winter!

My favorite use for honey would “bee” in my lemon/ginger tea. My kids love to put honey on their oatmeal, yogurt, toast, and on waffles. I always assumed different brands of honey would taste the same, we will have to do a taste test. Thanks for the info!
Oooh, Christina. I’ve never tried honey on waffles. We eat peanut butter on waffles as well as peanut butter/honey combo on bread or toast so I’m sure we would love it on waffles, too. It’s surprising how much different the various flavors – not just from brand to brand but from location to location.
Interesting recipe 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I make peanut butter balls and oatmeal cookies with honey!

Yum yum! Going to try this!
This is such a cool idea!
I made these for the 4th of July and they were a hit! We loved them so much i went out and bought morte eggs last night for round #2 lol. I would recommend these. I am going to check out the milkshakes next… working my way up/down the list of recipes 🙂
Wonderful, Rebecca! Hopefully eggs are as inexpensive in your area as they are here! A dozen will set you back about 38¢. Totally worth trying new recipes at that price! Can’t wait to hear what you concoct with the milkshake trick. And now you have me thinking we need to create some more recipes! 🙂
I had to read that twice lol, nooooo i’ve never seen eggs for 38 cents, they average $2.99/dozen more, of course, if you want brown, cage free etc… that’s amazing!
LOL. I imagine that was a shocker if you’re used to $2.99/dozen! We don’t go for brown, cage free or anything fancy. With two teenagers, I buy the inexpensive ones and always have hard-boiled eggs on hand for snacking, egg salad or deviled eggs.
Love using honey in recipes. A must try!
I never would have thought of adding honey to deviled eggs but this sounds delicious
This sounds delicious. I’m going to have to make some. Yum,yum,yum. Thanks for the recipes.
I’m not sure the honey would go with the paprika & garlic, but that’s interesting.
I enjoy your recipes. I saved this one.
