Deviled Eggs are a classic appetizer that’s always fun to serve at parties, Easter, potlucks, and during the holidays. It’s one of my mom’s favorite dishes to make for family gatherings and it always surprises me how fast they disappear! But it doesn’t have to be a special occasion to make these tasty little bites. They’re easy enough to make any day of the week and they’re a lot cheaper to make homemade. Keep the toppings simple or play around with some of our favorites listed below!😉

What Are Deviled Eggs?

Deviled eggs are eggs that have been hard-boiled, cut in half, then the yolks mixed with other ingredients before stuffing them back into the whites. They can be basic, super fancy, or anywhere in between. They’re perfect for parties, potlucks, family gatherings, and during the holidays. Or during the week when you just have a craving for some tasty deviled eggs! There are so many options and different toppings to choose from when making deviled eggs, which makes them a LOT of fun!

Ingredients For Deviled Eggs

To make things easy we followed the same formula as our small batch deviled eggs recipe, that we already love, with one extra addition. So here’s everything you’ll need:

  • Eggs: We use large eggs and boil them following our easy how-to guide on How To Make Hard Boiled Eggs.
  • Mayonnaise: Mayo gives the filling a creamy, smooth texture.
  • Dijon mustard: Dijon mustard adds great tang and flavor to the deviled eggs.
  • Seasoning salt: To season the egg mixture we use Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning, but you can use any brand of seasoning salt like Lawry’s, Morton’s, or even a generic store brand. 
  • Dill relish: Relish is the extra added ingredient and my personal favorite! It adds lots of great dill flavor and some much-needed texture to the filling.

How Long Should You Boil Your Eggs?

When it comes to how long to boil eggs for deviled eggs, I followed our step-by-step guide on How To Make Hard Boiled Eggs and the eggs came out perfect!

The short answer is – boil large eggs for about 12 minutes to make hard boiled eggs. But there are a few other factors to keep in mind. I’ll share more details below.

Topping Ideas

This is where it really gets fun! We topped our deviled eggs with some chopped air fryer bacon, sliced green onions, and a little bit of paprika. But you can use all sorts of other toppings to make them your own or just to use up different ingredients in your fridge. Here are some more ideas for deviled eggs toppings:

How To Store Leftovers

If you don’t eat them all in one sitting, you can store any leftover deviled eggs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.

  1. Yup. This has been our go-to family recipe for basically every gathering. A little paprika or sumac is common for us. But! I have a chive plant, so might try that! TY!
