This is the BEST Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe! It’s a quick and easy appetizer or healthy snack that’s filled with simple ingredients and ready in a flash.
Whenever I make a batch of these eggs they always disappear so fast. It’s a good thing this recipe takes just a few minutes to make cause my kids demolish them in no time.
How to Hard Boil Eggs:
- To make deviled eggs you’ll need to first hard boil your eggs. I have a great tutorial on how to do this on the stove top with excellent results.
- Lately I’ve been making my hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot and they’re SO EASY!
- Place 1 cup of water in your pressure cooker and then place a rack over the water.
- Lay your eggs on the rack and set the pressure cooker to Manual for 5 minutes with the valve closed.
- Let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes, then quick release the rest of the way.
- Place the eggs directly in an ice bath for 5 minutes and you’re ready to peel!
How to Make Best Deviled Eggs:
- Place the yolks into a bowl and add the other filling ingredients.
- Mash the filling with a fork until you reach your desired consistency.
- Scoop the filling into the halved egg whites and sprinkle the tops with smoked paprika and diced green onions.
Deviled Egg Recipe Variations:
What I love most about deviled eggs is that you can make simple little changes to the recipe to make it your own!
- Swap out the sour cream for plain greek yogurt.
- Instead of pickle relish you could chop up your favorite variation of pickle!
- Use a granulated spicy mustard for a little more kick.
- Add a little bit of garlic powder for a more savory flavor.
- A classic deviled egg uses regular paprika for garnish, but I love the smoky flavor of smoked paprika… try both to see which you prefer!
How To Store Deviled Eggs:
- If you want to make Deviled Eggs ahead of time, the key is to keep the egg whites and filling separate until you’re just a few hours away from serving.
- Wrap the egg whites in plastic wrap and store in the fridge. Keep the filling in a covered dish in the fridge as well. Assemble just before serving.
- Deviled Eggs should be consumed within 3 to 4 days of being cooked.
