My Aunt Paula always teases me because she remembers a time when I would come home from school and make deviled eggs as my after school snack. Seriously not the best habit to get into, but I guess at least I was cooking it myself and not whining for anyone to make something for me.


The BEST Deviled Eggs Recipe

Back then it was just egg yolk and miracle whip with a dash of paprika but this recipe is still classic but in a much better  way. The Best Deviled Eggs Recipe could just have miracle whip as the ingredients are similar, but it absolutely does turn out different so just follow the ingredients listed.

And the age old question, are you a miracle whip or mayonnaise fan?

Can Deviled Eggs be Made in Advance?

Why yes, deviled eggs can be made in advance. You can make deviled eggs 2-3 days in advance, but be warned, your fridge will smell like boiled eggs. You can make them and store them in their shells until you’re ready to peel them or you can prepare them and store the whites and filling separate. Read below.

How to Store Deviled Eggs

Did you know you can store The Best Deviled Eggs Recipe for a few days? If you haven’t made the deviled eggs recipe yet, go ahead and leave the eggs in their shells for up to 3-5 days. If you are merely prepping the eggs 1-2 days ahead of time, make the filling and store it in a a zip top bag with the air pressed out and the whites stored in another air tight container.

If your deviled eggs have been prepared, store them in a container with plastic wrap over them and with a tight fitting lid. A little paprika on top will help to keep the plastic from sticking to the yolks.

  2. TOO SWEET!!

  3. Lol, leftover deviled eggs in our house is like leftover wine….a mere figment of the imagination!

  4. wow, it’s a very nice to eat eggs. Normally I don’t like to eat the yolk much because I feel it really fatty.
    Now I know how to change!
    Thanks a lot 🙂

  5. Carrian, Your recipe sounds great and I will use it this year. I do often put a teaspoon to tablespoon (depends on how many eggs I’ve prepared!) of horseradish along with a tablespoon of sweet pickle relish. Love your recipes! Happy Easter all!

  7. I have tried several recipes of deviled eggs and these are by far THE BEST

  8. This has been my go-to recipe for a couple of years now. It really is the best! It’s great with honey mustard but also good with whatever mustard you have on hand (most often Dijon at my house). Thanks for the recipe!

  9. Can you make these a day ahead, or are they better freshly made? I can’t wait to try them! I’m making them for my daughter’s first birthday party this weekend. Thanks for the recipe.

  10. This is good base recipe, so, 1st, I am a Miracle Whip user, though I would like to try this recipe with mayo. My twist on this: I use rice wine vinegar and a capful of apple cider. Also twitch of sugar, twitch of Tabasco, and a teaspoon of sweet relish, small amount. Oh, and I never use less than 18 eggs, they are a family fav.

  11. Oh my gosh. This is my recipe LOL except I add very thinly diced onions.

  12. the link to the ” perfect hard boiled eggs is broken.

  13. Making these today

  14. I was wondering what the measurements would be if i made 24 eggs thank you

  15. If you are going to use mayo, sugar and vinegar anyway—why not just use Miracle Whip? It has the same ingredients and isn’t quite so sweet. I’ve been making deviled eggs and salads with it for years. I think MW has a bad rep because it isn’t good on sandwiches, at least in the opinion of some people (others disagree and to each I say have at it). The name says “salad dressing ” . That’s what it was made for in the beginning.

  16. Sounds almost like my recipe I have always used, except, no vinegar and sometimes I just use plain mustard. Making them that way my whole life. Very good

  17. yummy. Used 8 lg eggs, followed recipe. Just added Dash of garlic powder and cayenne. Tasted great!

  18. Am so grateful i have now this recipe for a change. It’s kind of great.

  19. Just finished making this – the mixture was a little too runny, hoping it will set up a little in the fridge, and i thought it was a little bit too sweet. I will have my house taste tester and deviled egg lover try them tomorrow, over all good, but I might try with the 1/2 honey muster 1/2 dijon someone else mentioned, might even leave out 1/2 of the vinegar if it will keep it from getting so runny (like consistency of mayo).

    • Hi Jen,
      I’ve had that happen too when I didn’t use large eggs. THere just wasn’t enough yolk. I’d start with a little less of everything and then go forward. 🙂

  20. This is hands down the best recipe for deviled eggs! I won a food contest at work using this recipe 🙂 Thank you!

  21. My first attempt at using a recipe for deviled eggs! This recipe is very good – though, just a little too sweet for my deviled-egg-crowd’s taste. The measurements were pretty spot on too; just a TAD runny. I think next time, I’d opt for 1/2 honey mustard and 1/2 dijon as well as 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 pickled jalepeno juice for a little kick! All-in-all, great site and great recipe. 🙂

  22. I just tried your recipe today, it was soooo delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  23. Well first of all I must say I have had many deviled eggs in the past. All good but nothing special. That is until I tried these. I have made these three nights in a row now. They are sooooo good. The best I have ever had. They will defiantly be my go to recipe for DEVILED EGGS!!!

  24. Never tried them like this before i just use mayonnaise but im going to this Easter

  25. Never tried them like this but im going to this Easter thanks for the recipe

  26. What’s so ‘da bomb’ about these deviled eggs? This is a very basic recipe. I’ve been making my eggs this way since I was 15 yrs. old! I was looking for a ‘secret’ ingredient that would have made the eggs outstanding, but obviously there isn’t one.

    • Hi Katie,
      I’m sorry there isn’t something spectacular since you’ve already known this recipe. I grew up in a family that just used mayo and paprika so I think these are way better. In fact, it seems most people I know have the same mayo recipe as whenever we bring these to potlucks everyone asks for the recipe. If you have a secret recipe I’d love to hear it. Again, sorry you were disappointed and have a good weekend.

    • Try adding diced sweet gherkins pickles,finely chopped onion and a little chopped celery

    • What was the point of posting the negative comment? I just don’t get it. Just voicing your opinion as am a I, I suppose. Anyway my family really enjoyed this version. Thanks for sharing.
