Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe

Deviled EggsOur deviled eggs recipe is a perfect appetizer for gatherings and get-togethers- birthdays, barbecues, or picnics, you’ll find this dish on the table. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  • Eggs: Use large eggs if possible.
  • Mustard: The combination of mustard is my favorite. I prefer the tanginess of dijon and the color and simplicity of regular mustard.
  • Mayonnaise: I live in North Carolina, so Duke’s Mayo is the only option (if you know, you know)!
  • Pickle Brine: Pickles are serious business in our home, and so is the brine they pickle in. Find the best pickles in the deli section of grocery stores, and if you want that good-good, use brine from Grillo’s Pickles.
  • Smoked Paprika: Paprika flavors and adds and a nice smoky finish to the deviled eggs.

VARIATIONS AND SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Pickled Onions
  • Bacon
  • Sriracha
  • Pickles
  • Jalapeños or Serranos: Top the deviled eggs with fresh or pickled chilies for a nice kick.
  • Pickled Shallots
  • Replace paprika with our blackening seasoning for a bit of a twist.
  • Chives
  • Avocado: Use it as a topping or blend it with the egg mixture; this would be a fun way to make “Green Eggs and Ham” with little ones.
