If you’re searching for a cheap, low-carb appetizer or snack—especially something that fits into your keto diet deviled eggs are a great option. One of my favorite deviled egg recipes is this traditional one.

Deviled Eggs Ingredients

  • Eggs: Boil four eggs hard.
  • Mayo: Use two tablespoons of any kind of mayonnaise—light, normal, or Whole30-approved.
  • Dijon: A little tang is added to the mixture by the Dijon mustard.
  • Seasonings: salt, pepper, and paprika
  • Herbs: Sprinkle freshly chopped chives on top.

How to Make Deviled Eggs

  • Either boil the eggs in the Instant Pot or on the stovetop. After allowing the eggs to cool, cut them in half lengthwise.
  • Egg Yolk Mixture: Take out the yolks and place them in a bowl. Add the mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper, and mash with a fork.
  • Garnish with Yolks and Pipe: After mashing the ingredients until they have a creamy consistency, put them to a piping bag or plastic bag. Pipe it into the egg whites after cutting the corner. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with paprika and chives.

How Do Eggs Peel Easily After Boiling?

  • Quick results with the Instant Pot: I believe that cooking eggs in a pressure cooker is the simplest method for peeling them since the eggs almost fall out of the shell. To learn how to make hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot, see my recipe.
  • Not an Instant Pot? prepare sure your eggs aren’t too fresh if you’d rather prepare them in a saucepan rather than a pressure cooker. Peeling eggs is easiest when they are at least ten days old.
  • When to Peel: When the eggs are cold enough to handle, move them to a medium-sized basin filled with ice and peel them immediately for the best results. Hard-boiled eggs will not peel easily.
  • Hard-boiled eggs that can be made ahead of time: Eggs may be peeled and kept in the fridge for up to seven days.

Variations and Tips

  • Mayo: Greek yogurt can be used in place of mayonnaise.
  • Pickles: You may enhance the taste of the yolk filling by adding pickle juice, diced dill pickles, or your preferred sweet pickle relish.
  • Vinegar: provide a tiny amount of red wine vinegar to provide some acidity.
  • Bacon: Before consuming them, sprinkle chopped bacon on top.
  • Fresh Herbs: Use finely chopped scallions, fresh dill, or parsley in instead of the chives.
  • Make it Spicy: Add horseradish, hot sauce, cayenne pepper, or jalapeño to make it spicy.
  • Spices: Replace paprika with chili powder.
  • How to Pipe Eggs Deviled: The most beautiful eggs can be achieved using a star-tipped piping tip (affiliate link), but if you don’t have one, you may use a zip-locked bag with the end cut off.

How Much In Advance Can Deviled Eggs Be Made?

Making this simple deviled egg dish ahead of time allows you to have it ready for gatherings and meal prep. You may separate the egg yolk filling from the whites and boil the eggs up to two days ahead of time. Place the yolk mixture in a resealable plastic bag and securely cover the egg white halves with plastic wrap.

Never keep them out at room temperature for longer than two hours if you’re serving them at a party; otherwise, you’ll have to discard them. Deviled eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to four days.
