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, Guacamole Deviled Eggs and Tuna Deviled Eggs.

How Do You Boil Eggs So They Peel Easy?

  • I personally think the easiest way to peel eggs is making them in the Instant Pot, 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 to your deviled eggs
  • 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. Great easy recipe.  Thanks for that.

  2. 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. 

  3. 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!

    • 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Made as is and these are even BETTER than the less healthy traditional versions. Thanks!!

  6. 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!! ?

  7. I really like using spicy brown mustard.

  8. Question concerning the points. How is this 0 freestyle points when there is mayo in it? 

  9. How many Freestyle Points please?

  10. 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!)

  11. Curious how it’s zero points with the mayo

  12. Wouldn’t the mayo in the recipe make these 1pt per serving?

  17. Just made these and they are absolutely delicious!

  18. I took another reader's advice and did half cottage cheese and half mayo. These were absolutely fantastic!!! Love the simplicity of this recipe. I would always add onion and relish to my recipe but I like it much better without that. This is easy and delish!!!

  19. Does the calories listed count for only one or the serving listed?

  20. I replaced the mayo with plain greek yogurt and it tasted great!

  21. just made this recipe, and can i just say, it's SO DELICIOUS. got the full flavor without the guilt(:

  22. Try making the filling this way – put yolks and other ingredients into a ziploc. Mush them up, then cut off a small corner and pipe them into the whites. Easy clean up, hmm?

    Thanks for the recipe

  23. My mom makes these the EXACT same way. They're so good!

  24. I tried making these in preparation for Easter, instead of using paprika I add a dash of chipotle powder to each one. YUM!

  25. Great idea!!

  26. you could also add a bit of wasabi instead of the dijon mustard. Gives you the a little horseradish heat, and just a smidge of unusual flavor.

  27. I can make deviled eggs for ONE pt per two halves and it involves replacing about half the yolk mixture with pureed cauliflower. They are delicious and no one knows its in there….basically I use the same binder as you do with the lowfat mayo, but I do add just a bit of horseradish also. YUMMY!

  28. I've never tried it with cottage cheese, thanks for the tip!!

  29. I used to use a sandwich bag all the time… just went out and got a pastry bag!! 🙂 I make DE's alot… sometimes I put bacon bits (REAL BACON) in them YUM-O! Another point saver is try using FF cottage cheese instead of mayo.

  30. I need more of that in my life. You know what else I need more of in my life? Deviled eggs. Made a batch the other day… I ate them in one sitting. I couldn’t eat that many eggs cooked any other way, I’m sure of it, but with deviled eggs, I think I could eat a million of those devils!thank you for shearing your post.

  31. @Sherryl, great idea! @Duo Dishes, I use a sandwich bag to pipe mine, just fill the bag and cut the corner of the bag with a scissor. easy cleanup!

  32. Dear Gina,

    I wish you a great trip, enjoy and relax my friend!
    Great snack these Deviled Eggs!

  33. Who doesn’t like a deviled egg? Ours are always taste but ugly. Maybe we should try piping the filling in.

  34. I love your site (although not a deviled egg fan!) One more way to save pts though — after my fatherinlaw’s heart surgery, I made deviled eggs with egg beaters and just threw the yolks out. just let the egg beaters set up in a hot pan, and voila! Instant, healthy yolk! Keep up the great site!

  35. Have a great time with your family!

  36. These eggs looks delicious!!! Thanks Gina.

  37. My kids love my deviled eggs, but mine are not low in points, lol! These look delicious Gina. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter.
