Deviled eggs are a holiday staple in my house.  Whether it’s at a Christmas, Easter, or Labor Day weekend celebration, deviled eggs always make the cut!  I thought you might need something quick and easy to whip up for your upcoming Easter celebration, and this recipe is definitely that!  You can make these ahead of time, which is something I especially love about it!  If video tutorials are your thing, watch how I make this on Instagram in my highlight called “Deviled Eggs”.

TIP: Whenever I’m serving deviled eggs it is almost always at a party I’m not hosting, so I have to package them up to travel.  The best way I’ve found is to make the mixture ahead of time and put it in a large Ziplock bag and put the egg whites in glassware with a lid.  The platter I’m serving the eggs on gets packed too.  Once I’m at the party I set out the platter, place the egg whites on it, cut the tip of the Ziplock bag, fill the eggs and garnish them.  This is so much easier than trying to transport the eggs already filled, since they slide around. 🙂

Deviled Eggs
Recipe by: Alison Howard
Yield: 24

Ingredients:

1 dozen eggs, hard-boiled
1 cup mayo (maybe more depending on how you like the consistency)
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
1-2 Tbsp purple onion, minced
1-2 Tbsp dill pickle, minced
1 tsp pickle juice
1 tsp green onion, minced
1 tsp fresh dill, minced
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp white pepper
Salt, to taste

Directions:

  1. Peel hard-boiled eggs and slice in half.  Remove egg yolks and place in a bowl.  Smash egg yolks with a fork until broken up.
  2. In a larger bowl, combine all other ingredients and mix well.  Add the egg yolks and combine.  Use a hand mixture if consistency isn’t smooth enough.
  3. Using a pastry bag or a ziplock bag, pipe egg yolk mixture into the egg whites.  Garnish with fresh dill or chives.

Enjoy!

As a side note: before bringing common food allergens, like eggs, to any party please make sure that there are no known allergies of those attending.  My nephew is extremely allergic to certain foods, egg being one of them, and the terror my sister feels at every celebration is real.  With food allergies on the rise, we can never be too safe! xo!
