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 filling. I could eat that by the spoonful!

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 (we prefer regular, but dijon mustard works too)
  • mayonnaise (for a lighter method, you can use plain greek yogurt)
  • 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 been in the ice bath, 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 mash or 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 amd/or chives.

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 refrigerator 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.

How to Change it up? That’s easy to do based on preference. Use dijon mustard instead of regular mustard or greek yogurt instead of mayo. You can also garnish with different herbs or spices like cayenne.

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!
