Best Deviled Eggs

Learn how to make the Best Deviled Eggs as the quintessential appetizer for social gatherings, especially seasonal brunches like Easter, Mother’s Day and even summer BBQ’s. 

Get the complete insight into how to make the best deviled eggs and 5 delicious egg recipes below.

Classic deviled eggs are made with simple ingredients like mayo, mustard, a dash of hot sauce, salt & pepper.  I like to add a little extra flavor by adding minced onion or shallot to my filling.  It’s unexpected but adds just a hint of flavor that keeps people guessing.

Paprika is also traditional, but not for flavor, rather for color when added as a garnish.

I made these classic deviled eggs for my family and my daughter said they were absolutely phenomenal – the best she’s ever had.  Even better than grandmas, which is a huge compliment considering my mother in law is the queen of deviled eggs.

Best Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced onion or shallot
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 dashes of Tabasco sauce or any hot sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • paprika to garnish

Boil, Steam or Pressure cook the eggs until the yolks are hard.  See 3 ways to hard boil eggs here.

Peel the eggs.  Slice the eggs in half and remove the yolk into a separate bowl.  Mash the yolk with a fork until crumbled.  Add mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, onions, tabasco and mix with a fork until you get your desired creamy consistency.  You can add a touch more mayo until you reach your desired creaminess. Taste the filling and add more salt, pepper or tabasco as desired.

You can either spoon the mixture into the egg whites or for a prettier presentation, you can pipe the mixture into the egg whites using a plastic bag.  Simply spoon the mixture into a sandwich size plastic bag.

Clip the corner of the bag about 1/4 inch and slowly pipe the filling into the center of the egg white until it’s filled to your liking.  Repeat until all eggs are filled.

    Thanks for the recipes! Tried the avocado deviled eggs as I had a very ripe avocado I was given that I didn’t want to throw away. It worked out very well. I don’t normally like avocados, but they went very well with the eggs.

    1. Thanks, Arthur! So glad to hear you liked the avocado deviled eggs. Try the classic recipe above with the tabasco sauce. It’s so good! Hope you like it!
