Tips For Success

  • You need hard-boiled eggs with a firm yolk for this recipe. So try and cook them for about 10-11 minutes.
  • To cool them fast do it in some iced water, but if you have time then just let them cool down naturally.
  • Feel free to buy pre-cooked eggs to save time.
  • To make the eggs look pretty you can pipe the filling on.
  • If you don’t want to pipe the eggs you can just use a spoon to add the filling back in.

Delicious Variations

These spicy Deviled Eggs are delicious because of their simplicity, but you might want to take it to the next level…
  • Add heat - feel free to add in some diced jalapeño, chipotle, cayenne or red pepper flakes for a bit of heat.
  • Add fresh herbs - a sprinkle of your favorite chopped fresh herbs will make a huge difference.
  • Add meat - diced bacon or buffalo chicken would make a great addition.

Budget-Friendly Tips 

  • Buy eggs when on sale - buy them on sale and serve deviled eggs then. 
  • Use up leftover eggs - use up those leftover eggs from Easter egg hunts and dyed eggs.
  • Keep it simple - just mix in some mayo and mustard and you got some classic Deviled Eggs there.
  • Make deviled egg salad - if you have leftover deviled eggs, just mash them up and turn them into egg salad or an egg salad sandwich!
