Easy Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are one of the best parts of spring and summer – they are easy to make but look insanely elegant, they are light – but filling, they use up all the eggs you dye at Easter, and they are naturally low carb and work with a keto diet.

The Best Deviled Egg Recipe Ever is a classic staple everyone should have in their back pocket – it is easy to dress up (check out my Bacon Sriracha Deviled Eggs, and Bacon Crab Deviled Eggs for some good ideas), and goes well with everything!

If you’re looking for the best ever deviled egg recipe – you’re in the right place. I hope you love these easy deviled eggs as much as we do!

How To Make Deviled Eggs

How to cut deviled eggs. Deviled eggs get their signature look from being sliced in half, the yolks scooped out and whipped with mayo and mustard, and then piped back in.

For perfectly cut deviled eggs:

  • Start with boiled eggs that have cooled.
  • Cut boiled, peeled eggs in half lengthwise with a smooth, single motion.
  • Gently scoop yolk from middle of egg – it should pop out.
  • Remove yolks and place in a small bowl.
  • If making ahead of time, store egg white halves in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

How to pipe eggs. You can easily use a spoon to scoop your egg yolk filling back in your eggs, but it is so easy (and so much prettier) to pipe it back in!
While a pastry bag with a star tip will give you a dramatic look, it’s easy to pipe the egg yolk filling by just using a plastic bag with the tip cut off. Don’t worry too much if it looks a little haphazard – topping the eggs with bacon, chives, and sriracha will make even the sloppiest of piping jobs look perfect!

  • Add Yolk mixture to pastry bag or ziploc bag with the tip of one corner cut off.
  • Gently pipe yolk mixture back into egg.
  • If you like spicy food and want extra spicy deviled eggs, mix a little mayonnaise with sriracha and then top with more sriracha!

Tips and Tricks to Perfect Deviled Eggs & FAQs

How to easily peel eggs. It can be tricky to have easy to peel boiled eggs – but I have a trick that will help make your boiled eggs easy to peel! Once your boiled eggs are cool, crack the eggs and place in cold water for 10 minutes, then try to peel them – the shock of cold water helps the shells come off quickly. Make sure to place them in water with plenty of ice to really help get that shell ready to peel off easily!

How far ahead can deviled eggs be made? Deviled eggs can be hard-boiled and peeled up to 1 day in advance and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. The eggs can also be sliced, and yolk filling prepped, a day in advance – but save the yolk filling in a small airtight container, and save the piping for just before serving the deviled eggs. Fill the egg white shells when ready to serve, and top with sriracha, diced chives, paprika, and bacon.
