Homemade Deviled Eggs

I am so thrilled about today’s post because I LOVE deviled eggs — and could probably live off of them! It’s one of those apps that looks more intimidating to make than it actually is, too, so if you’re in need of a dish to bring to a holiday gathering, this is a superb one that will impress everyone. Plus, they travel well in a sealed container.

The simplicity of making deviled eggs is seriously the best, especially for how addicting the little devils are! All you do is boil some eggs (check out the recipe card below for my easy and effective method), let them cool in an ice bath, peel them, slice them lengthwise, and mix the yolks with some mayo, mustard, pickle relish, and salt. Add that mixture back to the egg whites, and you’re done! And they’re SO good. For a little more festivity, feel free to add fresh dill or paprika to the top!

How far in advance can you make deviled eggs?

These are such a great make-ahead appetizer. Make them up to 2 days in advance, and the trick is to store the yolk mixture and egg whites separates. Store the yolk mixture in a sealed container and the whites on a platter covered with plastic wrap in the fridge.

How long will deviled eggs keep in the fridge?

Deviled eggs can keep for up to 3 to 4 days in the fridge, but to me, they always taste better the fresher they are!

How do you keep deviled eggs from sliding?

When filling the egg whites with the yolk mixture, hang on to the egg white with your hand to keep it from slipping and sliding away from you. They’re slick little guys, so using a plate with a high lip or edge is also helpful in keeping them on the dish.

How do you get lumps out of deviled egg filling?

I like to use a hand mixer when whipping up the egg filling to ensure it gets nice and smooth and lump-free.

Description

Deviled eggs are a classic appetizer or snack for any gathering and are incredibly simple to prepare for easy enjoyment!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 cold eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low (or off) to ensure the water is no longer boiling or has bubbles, and use tongs or a skimmer to place the eggs in the water. Then increase the heat back to high, and set a timer for 12 minutes.
  • While the eggs are boiling, prepare an ice water bath, and set aside.
  • After 12 minutes, remove the eggs from the water, and place in the ice water bath.
  • Once the eggs have cooled completely, peel them and slice in half lengthwise.
  • Remove the yolk and place them in a small bowl using a spoon, and place the egg whites on a plate.
  • Mash the yolks with a fork, and add the mayonnaise, mustard, pickle relish, and salt. Stir to combine well. If things are a bit lumpy, keep working them. You can also use an electric mixer to beat them smooth.
  • Use a spoon to add a portion of the deviled egg mixture back into the hole of each egg white.
  • Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

Notes

  • Sometimes I scoop the deviled egg mixture into a sealable baggie, and then cut one corner about 3/4-inch wide. You can use this to pipe the mixture back into the egg whites.
