How do you make deviled eggs?

Deviled eggs are made from the base of hard-boiled eggs. So, start by hard boiling your eggs. Cool and Peel your eggs. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise (this is important), and then remove the yolks. Place the egg yolks in a bowl, and careful place the egg whites on a platter, cut side up. Mash the yolks and add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well. We’ve found that using a hand blender works really well to make the yolk mixture extra creamy. Please the mixture in a plastic bag, cut the tip off, and pipe the mixture into the empty cavities of the eggs on the platter.

Why are They Called Deviled Eggs?

Have you ever wondered why deviled eggs are called deviled eggs? We did too! It appears that the first references to using the word “deviled” in association to food occurred in the 19th century in association with spicy food, including eggs. Over time the term “deviled eggs” came to mean hard-boiled eggs prepared with spices and mustard mixed with the yolks and then re-stuffed in the egg.  Other common terms for “deviled eggs” are “angel eggs”, “stuffed eggs”, “Russian eggs”, “dressed eggs”, and “picnic eggs”.

  1. I love deviled eggs. I put about a teaspoon of horseradish in mine with dill, spicy mustard a little onion powder, salt and pepper and let’s not forget the mayonnaise. I enjoy reading all the different ways of making deviled eggs. I use my large star cake decorating tip to refill the eggs.
