Variation ideas

  • Mustard – Use flavored mustard if you want to make something a little different instead of yellow mustard. Dijon mustard is a great choice.
  • Seasoning – Sometimes, I also sprinkle a little paprika on top. It gives the eggs a great pop of color. Feel free to add in fresh herbs such as basil or rosemary. We have even add in a ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper for a hint spice.
  • Black Olives – I have even seen sliced olives on top for garnish.
  • Hot Sauce – Add hot sauce sriracha sauce to the egg mixture to spice things up.
  • Pickle Relish– add a few spoons of sweet pickle relish to the yolk mixture.
  • Pickle Juice – Pour a little pickle juice into the yoks and mix for a new taste.
  • Vinegar – You can also add in teaspoon of vinegar to balance out the flavors.

How to Make Deviled Eggs

Peeled Hard Boiled Eggs with a cup of mayo and a bowl of mustard and seasoning

Step 1 – First, peel the hard boiled eggs and toss the shells.

Mashing egg yolks in a bowl with a fork

Step 2 – Second, slice the large eggs in half lengthwise. Then remove the yolk and put them in a bowl. I use the tip of a knife or spoon to help pop the yolk out of the egg.

Mixing the egg yolks with mayo, mustard and seasoning in a bowl

Step 3 – Next prepare the egg yolks that are in the bowl. Use a fork to mash the yolks. Once all of the yolks are mashed, add mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Combine this together.

Placing egg yolk mixture in a ziplock bag

Step 4 – Finally, put the yolk mixture into a ziplock plastic bag and seal. Trim the tip of the bag and pipe into the eggs.

  • Step 5 – Now just put the eggs on a plate and enjoy! If you want to be fancy, you can put a small dollop of egg yolk mixture in the center of the plate and add a sprig of fresh parsley to create a flower like look.
  • Step 6 – Sprinkle with paprika. You can make several of these small plates to put on your table to add lots of color.

Tips and Tricks

  • Boiling Eggs – I boiled my eggs and it was so simple using one of these egg timers. Once the water has reached the desired amount of boiling, the timer will turn dark red when it is finished cooking.
  • Boil Eggs in the Oven – Do you know how to make hard boiled eggs in the oven? This is another option if you don’t want to use the stove top.
  • Deviled Eggs Carrier – I use one of these handy Egg Keepers to tote the deviled eggs around. I have the Rubbermaid container and I love how tight the lid fits. We have taken this many of places and never had an accident. You can see all of the containers
  • Use Piping Bags – You can certainly just scoop the egg mixture into the boiled eggs. However, I like to use a piping bag because it makes the so pretty! If you are just doing a few, a sandwich bag will work too. Just keep in mind if you are doing a lot, those can bust.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Far In Advance Can I Make Deviled Eggs

You can make this up to 2 days in advance. I would suggest waiting to pipe the yolk mixture into the eggs until the day you are ready to serve.

How to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs

Peeling eggs can get tricky so choosing the right method will peel your hard boiled eggs with easy. We find that older eggs peel easily and placing them in ice cold water after boiling them. Another great option is to roll the egg on the counter to crack it and it should easily peel without damaging the egg.

How to Store Leftovers

Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
