[Recipe] Deviled Eggs

Since there are tons of the "standard" deviled eggs recipes all over the internet, I messed around a bit and made these ones a little different.  I thought sharing my regular deviled egg recipe would just be repetitive, and they are very easy to make even if you are just guessing at measurements (which I normally do for deviled eggs).  So if you want something a little different, try these out.

What You Need:

- 18 eggs
- 3/4 c. mayo
- 1/2 tbs. minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. Sriarcha sauce
- 1 1/2 tbs. honey mustard
- paprika for sprinkling

 Let's Cook:

- First, you will need to boil your eggs.  Boiled eggs are much easier to peel if they are not super fresh, so buy your eggs a week before you want to make them.

- Set your eggs in a large pot, cover them with water, and bring your water to a boil.

- Once the water is boiling, turn off the stove (remove the pot from the burner if you are using an electric stove).

- Next you will need to peel your eggs (you can leave them in the fridge over night if you boil them the day before you are going to make them, which I usually do).  I've found the easiest way to peel eggs is to crack them all first and let them set in cold water for a bit (just while you are peeling them), and also to peel them under cold, running water.
Separated yolks and whites.

- Once you have all your eggs peeled, begin slicing them in half long ways.  Take out the yolks and put them in a large mixing bowl.  You can rinse your egg halves to get any leftover yolk out, but you don't have to.

- The hard part is over!  Add your mayo, mustard, garlic, sriracha sauce, salt, and pepper into your bowl of yolks and blend with a mixer until smooth.

- If you don't have a cake decorating gadget (something like this), you can just scoop the mixture into the egg white halves with a spoon.  If you do have one, put the mixture into the container and make some pretty egg yolk designs!

- Sprinkle with paprika and enjoy!  Click here to print.


  1. Yummmmm! Deviled eggs are AWESOME! And thanks for including all the tips about buying them earlier, how to boil, and peeling them easily. All too often recipes take it for granted that readers are experts at the basics, and n00bs like me have to look up extra steps or have terrible results. XD

    At least for cake icing, I've found that a plastic bag with the corner cut out can still be a great tool for making fun designs! As long as you fill the bag before cutting the hole, haha. (:

  2. whaaa! I never thought to use Sriracha!!

    Mine is kinda similar but I use honey ("dijon" if I have I have it) mustard and I add bacon. lol And cheddar cheese!

    Also thanks for all the info about boiling eggs! I'm so dumb. I always buy mine the night before I make them, or same day. I usually end up losing 5-10% of the egg :( lol They look so ugly too!

    1. Also, I just looked this up lol

      Ummmmmm yea, mine never look that easy but I dont ever let them sit :(

      and PS, I am actually boiling eggs now to make some deviled eggs. lol
