Grandmothers Are The Heart Of The Family
My grandmother was more like a second mom to me. She taught me how to wear make-up, she bought me my first bra and she let me cry on her shoulder when I had my first heartbreak.
She had a small coop with a few chickens and when we were visiting, my sister and I were allowed to gather the eggs.
Deviled Egg Macaroni Pasta Salad Recipe
One of my favorite snacks would be anything with hard-boiled eggs. We would eat them plain or Gram would make her delicious deviled eggs.
My dad loved her pasta salad recipes, which were a must have at every picnic, BBQ or even Sunday dinner.
A Dish To Be Passed Down Through Generations
This is a recipe that I have passed down to my oldest daughter. This recipe is super easy to make and it travels well. This is a great side dish to take to a church potluck or to casual party.
We will make a batch with some fried chicken and take it to a new family in the neighborhood or a family with a new baby.
Healthy Can Still Be Delicious
If you are looking for a healthier side dish, you can adapt this recipe. All you need to do is use a lower fat or fat-free mayonnaise. You can also use a whole wheat or a gluten-free pasta.
Because you get the flavors of the eggs, the mustard, the relish and the onion, you cannot tell the difference with the lower fat mayonnaise.

Oh wow, what a combination! I need to make this for a BBQ this weekend!
Crystal saysAugust 6, 2015 at 2:20 pm
My husband and I made some new friends, and we’ve been getting together pretty regularly. But I’ve noticed something…they won’t eat anything store bought. We had a BBQ and I bought pre-made salads to save time. Nope, didn’t touch them. But when I make them from scratch, they gobble them up. This I’m sure they’d be licking the bowl!
Melinda saysAugust 6, 2015 at 5:33 pm
This is something I can see my son tearing into. Deviled eggs are one of his favorite foods, he can eat about 20 if you let him. This is just another way for him to get them into his face.
Debbie L. saysAugust 7, 2015 at 8:35 am
This looks delicious! I know my family would love this…..I think I will make it for our picnic next weekend.

Marcie W. saysAugust 14, 2015 at 7:10 pm
I have a weakness for macaroni salad and including eggs just makes me even more tempted to eat the entire bowl. I also love that you said smoked paprika instead of the standard type since there really is a huge difference!
Catherine S saysAugust 14, 2015 at 7:29 pm
This looks and sounds yummy. My favorite side is pasta salad or baked beans.
Amy @ Marvelous Mommy saysAugust 14, 2015 at 8:27 pm
Yum, I was just looking for a recipe like this! Pinning it now!
Debbie Denny saysAugust 14, 2015 at 8:42 pm
The grandkids love deviled eggs. This macaroni would be a hit also.

Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly saysAugust 15, 2015 at 10:50 pm
I’m so with your hubby on this one I HATE low cal mayo, it does NOT taste the same at all. This looks great I am going to have to try this recipe out, thanks for sharing!
Sabrina saysAugust 16, 2015 at 6:24 am

Susan Fields saysMarch 16, 2016 at 6:24 pm
Comments from anyone who has actually made this would be nice.
Annonymous saysApril 13, 2016 at 9:26 pm
I completely agree. I don’t make anything unless there are tried and true reviews, doesn’t matter how good it may look. I’d love to hear some actual reviews on this.
Susan Yakus saysJuly 26, 2016 at 1:31 pm
This is a great way to use up eggs and get a great salad at the same time. I am making this for a light dinner tonight. Thanks so much !
Susan Yakus saysJuly 26, 2016 at 3:42 pm
OMG!!! I just made this up and I am posting the review per requests. It is dynamite!! I didn’t change one single thing. Don’t you just hate when people say they made something and then changed like 4 things in it. DO NOT change anything. This is killer! I made a half batch for my husband and I, and I am already wishing I had made the full one. He tasted it and loved it. I guarantee there won’t be any left over.
audreyanneae saysJanuary 26, 2017 at 12:14 am
Thank you so much for your review! You convince me to do it tomorrow 🙂 (I was searching for someone who made it)
Juliette saysSeptember 27, 2016 at 7:23 pm
Good recipe in theory but had an odd taste with all the elements combined. Not sure if it needs to be seasoned differently or what. I ate it but I wouldn’t personally make it again. Could just be my own personal taste preferences though! Fun recipe to try.
mycraftingworld saysDecember 22, 2016 at 6:49 am
This sounds like something I will try to make. I think my husband will like it. More than that, I love the story with your Grandmother. I was the youngest grandchild on both sides of the family. I did not get those kind of memories. By that time older sisters and cousins “tolerated” me and let me hang with them.
Amy Green saysFebruary 9, 2017 at 11:29 pm
Your recipe looks fantastic! My sisters are going to go nuts for this side dish. They both love deviled eggs as well as macaroni. I love the fact that all of your food ideas are great the whole year round, not relegated to one particular day.

Christina saysJune 15, 2017 at 10:10 pm
How far in advance can you make this for a party?
Sarah L saysJuly 22, 2017 at 10:18 pm
Great flavors in this. I have a BBQ I’ll be taking this to. Thanks.
Sarah L saysJuly 24, 2017 at 10:15 pm
I’ll be making this next week. Thanks for the recipe.
Sarah L saysAugust 3, 2017 at 10:55 pm
I made this for a BBQ and it was a big hit. Thanks.
Sarah L saysAugust 15, 2017 at 11:54 pm
Will be making this again. Very tasty.
Barrie saysAugust 28, 2017 at 9:28 pm
Holy cow, this sounds amazing! My hubby will love this! I can’t wait to make it for him.
Sarah L saysAugust 31, 2017 at 11:38 pm
OK, I’ve had a ‘you MUST bring this next time’. It really is a big hit.
Mary Songer saysOctober 3, 2017 at 5:00 pm
This looks delicious. I love deviled eggs and pasta salad. My husband and I switched to Hellmann’s lite mayo and we think it’s better than regular mayo.
Mary Songer saysOctober 16, 2017 at 6:59 pm
I so love this recipe that I make it year round. Not just in the summer. I use Hellmann’s light mayo. It is delicious and always a big hit when I serve it to guests. Thanks for another recipe for my recipe book.
Sarah L saysJanuary 27, 2018 at 10:52 pm
Summer is coming and I’ll be making this for cookouts.
Rosie saysFebruary 13, 2018 at 4:50 pm
This sure looks good, and a different take on a picnic favorite. I’d love to try it!
Katrina Weiss saysMarch 3, 2018 at 3:16 pm
I might add some dill relish as well as the sweet. Otherwise it sounds really good!
Michelle saysMarch 25, 2018 at 2:47 pm
For those looking for feedback from people who have actually tried this recipe, not just commenting that they will try it, I’ve made this exactally as written and it’s absolutely amazing! I highly recommend! I’ve also made it with slight changes because of what we had on hand and due to personal preference. That was also really good. I always try AS WRITTEN first, then adjust to taste or as necessary with what I have. Adaptations: used sweet onion, omitted peppers, used dijon mustard, used salad cubes (instead of relish), added 2 Tbs gherkin pickle brine & 1 tsp vinegar. As I said, excellent as written, forgiving/adaptable to what’s in your fridge/pantry if necessary. Thanks for the wonderful recipe, Kelly!
Tiffany dayton saysApril 5, 2018 at 11:54 pm
It looks so good. I would love to try this. What a great recipe.
Amy D saysApril 8, 2018 at 5:54 am
This looks so yummy! I’ve never incorporated egg salad with pasta. Great idea. It looks like a crowd pleaser for a potluck. I’m always looking for yummy and easy-t0-make side dishes to bring to a party. This is great.
Starla saysApril 8, 2018 at 4:55 pm
I don’t know how I randomly came across this but holy yum. Incorporating deviled egg with pasta makes a great idea I think. It makes me think of my Nana. She would of loved this. Plus deviled eggs are a favorite for sure!
Sarah L saysApril 13, 2018 at 9:40 pm
Yesterday was summer-like with 75 degrees. Today is winter-like with snow flurries and 34 degrees. Want it to be warmer so I can fix this salad again.
Terry saysJune 8, 2018 at 11:39 am
Tried this last summer for the fist time and it was a huge hit! Everyone who tried it wanted the recipe! I made it exactly as the recipe called for!making it today for a birthday party tomorrow! Thank you for sharing the recipe?
Sarah L saysJune 25, 2018 at 10:19 pm
Now that it is officially summer I’ll be making this salad again. It has such good flavors in it.
Michelle Ayers saysAugust 2, 2018 at 6:58 pm
Wow never thought to put the two together!
Lynne B saysAugust 6, 2018 at 6:07 pm
I love hard-boiled eggs in my macaroni salad. I also love deviled eggs. I love your combination!
Peggy Nunn saysAugust 8, 2018 at 8:09 am
I love cold salads in the Summer. This is perfect for now. We love deviled eggs too. Thank you for the recipe.
Dana Rodriguez saysAugust 8, 2018 at 10:30 am
