Deviled Eggs on Plate

If you thought these little bites of heaven were hard to make, think again! I have some GREAT tips for you to help make a batch of deviled eggs that everyone will love! 

Whenever I see an egg plate like this one, I always think to myself, can these slots really be empty by the end of a party? Oh, yes they can!  I always arrange deviled eggs on a small dish or platter and that works fine too! 

First and foremost, the most important ingredient will be hard-boiled eggs.

I have a great how-to post on how to boil Easter eggs on the stovetop.

BUT, let me tell you-  I L-O-V-E this new egg cooker I found on Amazon! I have a teal blue color, but it also comes in a lot of other colors too. It sits on your countertop and a timing buzzer lets you know when they are done. 

I'm telling you, perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs every single time.

What Are Ingredients for Deviled Eggs?

To make this super easy recipe for deviled eggs you will need these ingredients:

  • Hard-Boiled Eggs made on the stovetop in a pot or in my favorite new countertop Egg Cooker. (LOVE this thing!) 
  • Mayonnaise – You can make homemade or use your favorite store-bought brand. I like Hellman's Mayobut Dukes Mayo is a close second. 
  • MustardDijon mustard is best, but if you like yellow mustard that is ok too. 
  • Vinegar– white vinegar or apple cider vinegar works. Not a fan? You can use lemon juice in its place. 
  • Garlic Powder– Just a tiny bit adds so much depth of flavor when adding this to your yolk mixture! 
  • Salt and Pepper– Just a dash here because the other ingredients will add just enough salt. Taste the egg mixture to get it just right. 
  • Extra Toppings- When I make this, I like to top my deviled egg with a sprinkle of paprika and a pinch of chopped fresh chives or sprig of parsley or dill. It gives a nice pop of color.

How to Make the Best Deviled Eggs Recipe

Prepare your yolk filling: Slice the peeled hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise, and gently scoop the yolks out into a small bowl.  Set egg white halves aside. In bowl full of cooked yolks, mash yolks with a fork, then stir in the mayonnaise, vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper until completely combined and smooth.

Fill the egg whites: Using either a spoon or a piping bag, fill the egg whites with the prepared yolk mixture. If you want the fancy swirl design, use a cake decorating tip inside your piping bag.

Top and serve: Top each of the deviled eggs with your desired toppings, then serve!

Additional Deviled Egg Add-in Ideas

Some tasty mix-in ideas for your deviled egg recipe are:

  • Sweet pickle relish: Just a teaspoon of this will add a really unique flavor to your eggs! 
  • Pickle juice: Want a tangy hint of flavor? Try adding 1/4 teaspoon of dill pickle juice. 
  • Heat: Want a zip to your eggs? Try adding a dash or two of Tobasco, Sriracha, or other hot sauce. 
  • Avocado: Chop up an avocado and add in the yolk mixture, or as a topping!
  • Bacon: It's the best pairing to an egg! Mix it in or chop and sprinkle on top! 

How Far in Advance Can You Make Deviled Eggs?

Deviled eggs are best when eaten the day they are made because to keep them super fresh and tasty. If you need to make them ahead of time, I'd say 3 days in advance, tops. Be sure to completely cover filled eggs with saran wrap. Sprinkle with paprika and chopped fresh herbs right before serving. 

How Do You Hard Boil Eggs so They Peel Easily?

The secret to easily peeling a hard-boiled egg is immediately running it under cold water after it is cooked. Whether you make them on the stovetop or in they handy egg cooker (did I mention how much I LOVE this thing?!) run eggs under cold tap water right away. This will stop them from cooking and super easy to peel!
