Best Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe (1)Best Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe (2)Since we have backyard chickens we are always looking for ways to use up our abundance of chicken eggs. That’s where these deviled eggs come in.

Whenever I make a batch of these eggs they always disappear so fast. It’s a good thing this recipe takes just a few minutes to make cause my kids demolish them in no time.

How to Hard Boil Eggs:

  • To make deviled eggs you’ll need to first hard boil your eggs. I have a great tutorial on how to do this on the stove top with excellent results.
  • Lately I’ve been making my hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot and they’re SO EASY!
    • Place 1 cup of water in your pressure cooker and then place a rack over the water.
    • Lay your eggs on the rack and set the pressure cooker to Manual for 5 minutes with the valve closed.
    • Let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes, then quick release the rest of the way.
    • Place the eggs directly in an ice bath for 5 minutes and you’re ready to peel!

Deviled Egg Recipe Variations:

What I love most about deviled eggs is that you can make simple little changes to the recipe to make it your own!

  • Swap out the sour cream for plain greek yogurt.
  • Instead of pickle relish you could chop up your favorite variation of pickle!
  • Use a granulated spicy mustard for a little more kick.
  • Add a little bit of garlic powder for a more savory flavor.
  • A classic deviled egg uses regular paprika for garnish, but I love the smoky flavor of smoked paprika… try both to see which you prefer!

How To Store Deviled Eggs:

  • If you want to make Deviled Eggs ahead of time, the key is to keep the egg whites and filling separate until you’re just a few hours away from serving.
  • Wrap the egg whites in plastic wrap and store in the fridge. Keep the filling in a covered dish in the fridge as well. Assemble just before serving.
  • Deviled Eggs should be consumed within 3 to 4 days of being cooked.
