Classic Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are such a classic and perfect if you’re looking for an inexpensive, low-carb appetizer or snack. Really popular if you’re looking for something that’s Keto friendly. And if you want to try some deviled egg recipes with a twist, you may also like these Instant Pot Deviled Eggs which are slightly different, Deviled Guacamole Eggs and Deviled Tuna Eggs.

How Do You Boil Eggs So They Peel Easy?

  • I personally think the easiest way to peel eggs is making them in the pressure cooker, see this recipe for Instant Pot Hard Boiled eggs, they literally pop out of their shells. You can see my recipe for Easy To Peel Hard Boiled Eggs here.
  • If you don’t have an Instant Pot, make sure your eggs aren’t too fresh. Eggs are easier to peel when they are at least 10 days old.
  • For best results, once the eggs are cooked, transfer them to a medium bowl with ice and peel your eggs right after they are cool enough to handle. Fully chilled eggs will not peel well. You can peel your eggs ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator.

Variations

  • Add your favorite relish
  • Add chopped dill pickles
  • Top them with chopped bacon before eating

How Far In Advance Can You Make Deviled Eggs?

Make Ahead: You can make the eggs up to 2 days in advance. Keep the whites and egg yolk filling separate and wrap the egg white halves tight with plastic wrap. Keep the egg yolk filling refrigerated in a resealable plastic bag.

Note:

  • A star-tipped piping tip (affiliate link) will give you the prettiest eggs, but if you don’t have one you can simply use a ziplock bag with the end snipped off.

  1. Very good – the ratio of mayo to mustard was perfect & your tip to peel the eggs while still hot was the best tip out there!!  I just had to add sweet pickle relish though. 

  2. I’m getting one point (Hellman’s light).  Still a great snack/breakfast but wondering about the difference in my calculations?  Have fun in Florida!

    1. The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  3. This review actually refers to her instant pot deviled eggs, which is a similar recipe except that it also uses some milk and pickle juice and is so good.

  4. I am confused! I entered everything using the recipe builder. It came up 1 pt for 2 halves for me too. Why is that? I am making these tomorrow regardless….they look fab! EVERYTHING I make from Skinnytaste IS fab!! Been using it for a loooong time and going to buy the cookbooks tomorrow!! ?

  5. Hi Gina! I built this recipe in my WW app and it came out to be 2sp because of the Light Hellman’s. Is this recipe incorrect as it’s labeled 0sp? (Also, I apologize for asking about the discrepancy – LOVE your recipes nonetheless!)

      1. I’ve put it into the recipe builder and it comes out as 1 point for 2 halves. I’m not sure why the calculation on this one didn’t switch over correctly for the smart points.
