THE BEST Deviled Eggs

I almost feel silly sharing this recipe today because I kind of figured that everyone knows how to make deviled eggs but Easter is on Sunday and maybe your aunt always brings the deviled eggs to go along with lunch and now she won't be there and it just won't be Easter without them :)  OR maybe you're like me and could eat a deviled egg and piece of cheese every day for lunch and be fine with that OR maybe you're the person who emailed me after my Harry Potter post last week and asked me to please share how I make mine because your mom's recipe is way too mustardy.  EITHER WAY I'm sharing today because my kids love these, Dave and I love these and they've been a quarantine fave for sure.

Step 1 is to hard boil the eggs.  I like to get the water to a boil and then gently place the eggs into the boiling water and start a timer for 12 minutes.  After 12 minutes I take them straight from the pot to an ice bath where I let them hang out until they're completely cooled.  After that you'll want to peel them, slice them in half and remove the yolks to a separate bowl.

I took horrible picture of this process mainly because my kids wanted to help and I felt like I was more worried about the knife than I was about snapping pics :)  My kids do use knives and I feel like cutting hard boiled eggs is good practice because they're super easy to cut.

Once you've scooped out all the yolks here's what you'll want to add 

(my pics have 12 so I just doubled everything)...

- 3 tablespoons mayo
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- a few pinches of salt and pepper

Use a fork and mush it all together until you have kind of a smooth consistency.  You can scoop the yolk mixture into the egg whites OR put it into a ziplock and attempt to pipe it in there.  Make sure if you pipe it that you don't use one of these dang baggies that doesn't have corners (seriously... there were no corners) because it'll make a hot mess.

Sprinkle some paprika on those bad boys and ENJOY!  If you want to get reeeeally crazy you can top them with a little piece of dill and a candied pecan (a la one of my FAVORITE McKinney restaurants) which I would have done except I wasn't about to run to the store just for candied pecans and dill :)  but TRUST ME it's delicious.

Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. I'm so glad you posted! Guess I'll be giving these a first attempt this weekend!

  2. Deviled eggs are the best and there's no better time to enjoy them than Easter. Have you ever tried them with the Blue Cheese Mustard from Trader Joes? That's my current favorite version :)


  3. I actually didn't know how to make deviled eggs (my grandma always makes them), so I am excited to use this recipe! Happy Easter!

  4. We love adding a little pickle juice. And I've been pickling my own shallots and jalapenos to top them with. Super easy and delicious!

  5. I use mayo, mustard, a little sugar, and Wickles spicy pickle relish. Made them a couple times during the last two weeks and since I didn't have paprika to sprinkle they looked naked....I ate them anyway.

  6. Add a little sugar. . .it will change everything :)

  7. There's a German restaurant in my town that puts a piece of bacon on their deviled eggs and then drizzles honey over the top of them. It sounds like a weird combination, but they're so good!
