I love Deviled Eggs. I always have. If you like Deviled Eggs as much as I do, you know how difficult it is to try to eat just one. Usually we only enjoy them around the holidays or for special occasions, in which case, I can’t dump several dozen on my plate and find a hiding place to eat them in secret. That would not be in the holiday spirit! No, not one bit. But don’t think it hasn’t crossed my mind on more than one occasion.

Deviled Eggs do seem to be the first thing that disappears on a dinner buffet. Just like that! Thankfully they are so very easy to make. Dozens of these savory bites can be made with basic ingredients, and ready to please Deviled Egg lovers all over the world in relatively no time. Boiling the eggs takes the most time. Once they are boiled and peeled, whipping up the filling is super easy to make and then it’s all about filling each one.

A few Deviled Eggs Recipe notes:

  • Deviled Eggs can be prepared a day or two ahead of time, then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Refrigeration is a must until serving time. I repeat, refrigerate these babies.
  • The recipe below is a classic Deviled Eggs combination, and it is certainly a keeper. An online search will show you a wide variety of different versions to this classic recipe. Sometimes I like to add pickle relish and maybe a bit of cayenne pepper to switch things up.
