Deviled Eggs are quick, fast and delicious! They are perfect for any occasion or meal and you will win everyone over with this fabulous recipe!
Do you love deviled eggs?
You either love them or you don’t- but I sure hope you do!
They are THE perfect side dish for almost every holiday, potluck or BBQ and they are cheap and easy to make.
With Easter right around the corner I’m already planning on making these for our family dinner.
My boys love helping with these, too. I sometimes have to let go of how aesthetically pleasing they turn out when I have them help- but I think it’s a good trade off to have my boys involved with making them.
Because a pretty deviled egg really can be satisfying and pleasing- but it’s how they taste and the love that went into making them that really counts!

What can you serve with deviled eggs?
Like I mentioned above deviled eggs are great for any meal- especially a holiday (think Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving or Christmas) or a summer picnic or BBQ.
Here are some great dishes you might want to pair with them.
I know not everyone loves mayo so you could sub the may for 1\2 miracle whip with 1\2 plain greek yogurt.
You could also use avocado, pesto, or olive oil. – however I cannot vouch for the same taste or consistency.
Instead of mustard you could try hummus, egg yolk, dried mustard, dijon mustard or lemon juice.
If you need to make your mayo try add one egg, mustard, vinegar, and salt then process for another 20 seconds. Slowly add the oil, in tiny drops, until about a quarter of the oil has been added.

Can I use cream cheese instead of mayo? You can try it. Simply place cream cheese in a blender and mix until it is the same consistency as mayo.
How far in advance can you make deviled eggs? You can make up to 2 days in advanced. Place in the refrigerator and cover completely.
What is the best way to fill deviled eggs? The best technique is to put filling in a ziploc bag, cutting the corner and gently squeezing out. Or if you have a piping bag that would also work well.
What’s the best way to slice the egg? Lengthwise is the best way.
Can I use hard boiled eggs that have been left out over night from the Easter Bunny? Hard boiled eggs need to be refrigerated (up to five days) so it is best to make a second batch if your eggs have been left out of the refrigerator for any lengthy amount of time.
Why is it called a deviled egg? Deviled eggs originated in Ancient Rome. The adjective “deviled” has a (somewhat) secular meaning—the word “devil” is just a culinary term that is used to describe a highly seasoned dish.
