I have to admit, I’m kind of a deviled egg snob. I won’t eat just any deviled eggs, but this deviled egg recipe is a clear winner! This recipe comes from my grandma and my mom now makes these anytime we have a family gathering.

The recipe is a combination of a few simple ingredients including hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, sweet pickle juice, Worcestershire sauce, a few drops of Tabasco sauce and salt & pepper. Top with a little sprinkle of paprika and chives for a pop of color and dive in!
How Do You Make The Best Deviled Eggs?
Just a few easy steps to the best deviled eggs you’ve ever tasted!
- First, boil eggs. Let them cool and then gently peel them.
- Cut the eggs in half and remove the yolks. Combine the yolks with mayonnaise and all other ingredients until smooth and creamy.
- Fill the eggs with the yolk mixture.
- Garnish and serve chilled or at room temperature!
Tips For Perfect Deviled Eggs
- To make the best deviled eggs possible, it’s VERY important to start with perfectly boiled eggs. This technique from the Pioneer Woman is the one I follow and it always works great! I also recommend cooking a few extra eggs, so you have some backups.
- To fill the eggs place the yolk/mayo mixture in a disposable pastry bag with a large star tip. You can also use a gallon-size baggie with the corner cut off. Of course, you can always just spoon in the filling.
- The most convenient way to make the yolk/egg mixture is with a food processor. This quickly and easily combines all ingredients into a smooth consistency.
- Boil eggs a day or 2 in advance to save time on the day you plan to serve the eggs.
- This recipe can easily be cut in half or doubled.
- If you have leftover deviled eggs, try mashing some up for egg salad sandwiches. So good!
I strongly encourage you to give this deviled egg recipe a try! It’s just so darn good and I know you’ll love it too. But you can also experiment with different ingredients. Listed below are some fun options.
- Cheesy Bacon: Cook and crumble 4 slices of bacon and add it to the top along with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
- Sriracha: Drizzle sriracha or another similar sauce over the top of the eggs.
- Avocado: Use mashed avocado in place of the mayo and lemon juice instead of pickle juice.
- Hummus: Swap out the mayo with your favorite hummus. This one would be yummy!
Deviled eggs are such a great snack or appetizer for the holidays, potlucks, BBQs, parties and other gatherings. And these just happen to be the best deviled eggs that I’ve ever had. Give them a try! They always get rave reviews!

Best Deviled Eggs
- 12 large hard boiled eggs, peeled and cut in half
- 1/2-3/4 cup mayonnaise, depending on how creamy you like the filling
- 2 teaspoons sweet pickle juice
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- a few drops of Tabasco sauce, optional
- salt and pepper to taste
- Optional for topping: paprika and/or minced chives
- Gently separate the egg whites from the yolks. Place the yolks in the bowl of a food processor (or in a shallow bowl) and place the whites on a large plate or serving tray.
- Add the mayonnaise, sweet pickle juice, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce (if using) and salt and pepper to the food processor (or bowl); process until smooth. If you're not using a food processor use a large fork to mash the yolks into a fine crumble and then stir in the other ingredients.
- Transfer the egg yolk mixture to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe the filling into the cavity of each egg white.
- To garnish the deviled eggs, add a sprinkle of paprika and top with minced chives. Deviled eggs can be served at room temperature or chilled.
- Use this technique for boiled eggs that turn out perfect and are easy to peel.
- If you don't have a piping bag, try using a gallon-sized freezer bag with one corner cut off.
- To make ahead, boil eggs 2 days in advance. You can also peel and separate whites from yolks and store until you're ready to make the filling.
- Store deviled eggs in an airtight container for up to about 4 days.
