Best Deviled Eggs

I have a few go-to appetizer dishes and deviled eggs are at the top of that list (along with buffalo dip and brown sugar smokies).

They are a classic recipe that never goes out of style. Everyone loves them and they are eaten as fast as I can put them down on the table. The smooth texture and rich flavor of deviled eggs is what makes this recipe a crowd favorite.

These tangy bites of heaven are great for any occasion. Holiday parties, wedding/baby showers, birthday parties, or just small dinner parties.

My favorite part of a deviled egg is the creamy velvety filling. I could eat that by the spoonful! Any else agree with me on that one? If you’ve never tried deviled eggs before, you will be in love with them after trying this recipe.

How to Make Deviled Eggs

The process of making deviled eggs is a lot easier than you would think. I know some people are intimidated by making deviled eggs, but you don’t need to be with this simple recipe. And you just need a few ingredients to make these tasty eggs!


  • eggs
  • mustard
  • mayonnaise
  • salt & pepper
  • paprika

BOIL. If you have never boiled eggs before or need more tips in that area, go to this post HERE. This post will help you boil the perfect egg. After you have boiled your eggs and they have cool in cold water, peel and rinse each egg.

CUT. Take each egg and carefully cut them lengthwise. Take out the yolks and put them into a bowl and set the whites aside.

MIX. Add the mustard and mayo to the bowl with the egg yolks and whip with a fork until smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the yolk mixture into each egg white hole. Sprinkle with a little paprika.

CHILL. Put them on a platter and keep in the fridge until ready to serve!

How to Make Deviled Eggs


How to pipe on egg mixture? To make your deviled eggs look a bit more fancy, use a large star tip and a resealable plastic pipe and pipe the yolk mixture into each egg before dusting with paprika.

You can also simple cut a hole at the corner of a Ziploc bag and pipe the yolk mixture for a smooth, whirled yolk topping.

Can you make deviled eggs ahead of time? If you need to make these ahead of time it’s best to keep the egg fillings separate until you are ready to serve them. Wrap the egg whites tightly in plastic wrap. And put the yolk mixture into a bag and squeeze all the air out.

You can keep the egg yolk mixture and egg white separate and in the fridge for up to 2 days.

How to store deviled eggs? You can store the deviled eggs in the fridge for a couple days. They don’t stay good for longer than about 3 days. Keep them in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap.

Making for a crowd. Depending on the person, I would plan for about 2-3 deviled eggs per person if you are bringing these to a party. Honestly, we feel like you can never have enough of these guys!

    I love love love deviled Eggs! I like the adDition of the mustard in your reCipe. also thAnk you for the link to the hard boileD eGgs. Im always looking for the best way to boil an egg where the shell will peel riGht oFf.

  4. I make the eggs the same as you do but i separate the yolk mixture ansd i had a little horseradish to one half. It is very good and gives just a new flavor. My family loves them

    Great recipes

    I am a hard (semi soft actually) boiled eggg afficiondo

    As such I have had adventures, successes and fristrations with PEELING an egg

    My Almost foolproof Discovery:

    1). Peel a narrow strip down the length of the egg. It can be wuite rough and sloppy

    2) then peel the edGe of that lenghtb you just peeled , tring to also peel the filmy skin btween the Shell and egg white

    3) large pieces of sheLl will come off at one time Somtimes only fOur Or fives pies to completely remove the shell from the egg


    And a very satisfying experience for doing a job well
