A Dozen Deviled Egg Recipe Ideas to Try Right Now

deviled egg recipe ideas

Deviled eggs. You either love ’em or you hate ’em. I am both feet in on the former.

I remember the first time I had one. It was one of those bustling church picnics where everyone brings a blanket and a pot luck dish and there’s children and ants running around everywhere. My sisters dared me to try it, and by the looks of it, I proceeded with extreme caution and suspicion. (Some of the things my sisters dared me try to weren’t exactly in my best interest. Bless their hearts.)

But it was love at first bite. And the rest is history.

My husband prefers the classic rendition – a hint of celery salt, a bit of mayo and mustard, a splash of vinegar, and a dash of paprika.

That’s fine and all.

But I say live a little.

I’ve pulled together a dozen deviled egg recipe ideas that would be perfect for your Easter brunch, afternoon iced tea with friends, popping while the grands hunt eggs, a Spring picnic, or really any time at all. If you’ve spent much time in fancy schmancy restaurants lately, you know that deviled eggs are all the rage. Go figure! We were gourmet chefs all along and didn’t know it!  But it’s easy to see why deviled eggs are so popular.  They’re not only delicious but versatile. 

They’re great for breakfast. Mid-morning snack. Lunch. Mid-afternoon snack. Cocktail hour. Dinner. Midnight snack. You get the idea.

What make’s these puppies so great is that you can deck them out in all kinds of flavors and they are the perfect vehicle to usher those flavors into your mouth (especially when you use my tried and true system for boiling eggs!). They don’t call them the incredible edible egg for nothing, right?

Ok, let’s jump in. I dare you not to get mad cravings while you are reading this post. I personally had to take two snack breaks while writing it.

And easy. And perfect for last minute guests. And she’s a really lovely human being to boot. What more could I ask for? Nothing.
