Amazing Deviled Eggs

Jump to Recipe

One of my favorite hor devours to eat during Easter time is amazing deviled eggs. But that doesn’t stop me from eating them all year round.

If you aren’t sure what deviled eggs are they are basically hard-boiled eggs that are cut in half. Then the yolks are removed and usually used to make some kind of yummy filling, then the filling is put into the egg white halves. And topped off with some paprika to give that classic red coloring.

They are served as a side dish or hor devours. And usually, they are eaten cold. An American and European favorite this classic dish is usually the first to be devoured on the table. This amazing deviled eggs recipe is so simple to make. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Gather the ingredients and tools

In order to make these amazing deviled eggs, we need to first get some ingredients and tools. You will need the following:

  • Hard-boiled eggs – You can’t have deviled eggs without hard-boiled eggs. They are the star of this dish. Don’t know how to make hard-boiled eggs? Follow this perfect hard boiled eggs recipe.
  • Mayonaise – I don’t normally like mayonnaise by itself but it works perfectly as the main filling ingredient. It help binds the other ingredients together.
  • Milk – The milk will help you get the desired consistency of the filling. I generally use whole milk, but you can use whatever kind of milk that you like.
  • Ground mustard – This will give the filling that classic yellow color and slight mustardy taste. You can also use regular bottled yellow mustard if you use that you may not need the milk.
  • Salt – Add some table salt to balance the flavor.
  • Paprika – The classic deviled eggs always have paprika on top.
  • Optional ingredients are black ground pepper and garlic powder. Not traditionally used but I like adding them.

Step 2: How to make amazing deviled eggs

We need some hard-boiled eggs. Prepare those first and let them cool. You can make these ahead of time. Once your hard-boiled eggs have been made and cooled, take the eggshells off of all of them. Next using a knife slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Then carefully remove the yolks so you don’t damage the egg whites. And add them to a bowl.

Step 3: Make the deviled eggs filling

The filling is incredibly easy to make. Just add all the ingredients to your bowl with your egg yolks, the mayonnaise, milk, mustard, and salt. And any optional ingredients like pepper and garlic powder. Then mix them all together with a fork or spoon. You can also use an electric mixer too if you like. Another option would be to smash up the egg yolks separately then add the other ingredients. Mix all the ingredients together until you get your desired smoothness for the filling. You can add more milk if necessary to get it even more smooth.

Step 4: Finish them off

Now, all we need to do is fill up the egg halves with the filling. You can use a small spoon to do this or use a piping bag. Get out some fancy cake tips and make that filling elegant if you wish. Or just use a plastic bag and snip off the corner with some scissors for a makeshift piping bag. Once you have them filled dust the tops of them with paprika. Place them in a container and cover them with a lid or plastic wrap and store in the fridge until ready to eat. There you go! Amazing deviled eggs that are super easy to make. Enjoy!

How long do deviled eggs last?

Deviled eggs will last 3 to 4 days if properly stored in the fridge. I am not sure how they will even make it that long though, they are so yummy! However, after a few days in the fridge, the filling and egg whites will start to separate.

Can I make them in advance?

Sure you can make your deviled eggs in advance. No more than 1 to 2 days though. It is recommended that you keep the egg whites and the filling separate. Then fill them an hour or two before you want to serve them. Keep each in a bowl with a lid. The filling should be placed in a bowl with plastic wrap on top with the plastic touching the top of the filling, ensuring there is no extra air in it.
