How far in advance can I make deviled eggs?

The secret to making deviled eggs ahead of time is to keep the egg whites and the egg yolk filling mixture separately. You can do this up to two days ahead of time. You will need to cover the egg white halves entirely with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Fill a Ziploc bag with the yolk mixture and squeeze the air out when sealing it closed.

What makes a food deviled?

The food isn’t evil right?! So what makes it deviled? It actually comes from the early 1700s and was a term used to cook anything with spicy seasonings and condiments such as mustard. Today it is typically used to describe deviled eggs and deviled ham.

7 Best Deviled Egg Flavor Variations:

  1. Bacon and Chive – Follow the directions below, but add 2 finely chopped bacon slices to the filling along with 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped chives. 
  2. Bacon and Avocado Everything is better with bacon, right?! Besides bacon, what I love about this recipe is the use of dreamy, creamy, avocado!!  
  3. Crab – Follow the recipe below, but fold in 4 ounces of crabmeat to the filling. The filling will be super thick so you will need to spoon in the filling rather than pipe it. Also, instead of using paprika, dish the eggs with some Old Bay Seasoning. 
  4. Chipotle You’ll love the kick of flavor and spice with these deviled eggs!  
  5. Blue Cheese – Add 3 tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese to the recipe below. 
  6. BarbecueThese would be the perfect appetizer for summertime barbecues!  
  7. Dill Pickle – Follow the recipe below, but use yellow mustard instead of Dijon, and add 1 tablespoon of finely chopped dill pickles and 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh dill to the filling.
