The spicy yolk paste is then piped back into the hole in the egg white and chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Classic Deviled Eggs ingredients & substitutions:

  • EGGS: I like to use free range eggs as they have lovely rich yellow yolks.
  • RELISH: A spoon of relish adds a touch of savory sourness to the egg mixture. This could also be done with some white or red wine vinegar too.
  • DIJON MUSTARD: When it comes to mustard I use Dijon as it has a lovely mild flavor and a great creamy texture. However, you could use yellow mustard in this recipe.
  • MAYONNAISE: The mayonnaise adds a creamy element, you could substitute with Miracle Whip.
  • PAPRIKA: Adds a touch of smoky spice to the top of the egg. If you don’t like paprika then substitute another spice.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Deviled eggs with bacon are truly delicious, after all bacon and eggs is a classic flavor combination. Grill the bacon until crispy then crumble over the top of the egg just before serving.
  • Add freshly chopped herbs to the egg filling or sprinkle over the top. Freshly chopped chives, dill and parsley would work beautifully with the egg.
  • Fancy adding some chili heat, then chop through some jalapenos and swap the relish for some vinegar from the jar of jalapenos.
  • Sriracha sauce has a great sweet, sour and spicy flavor. So swap the relish for some Sriracha sauce or for those that truly love chili heat some hot sauce.
