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.

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. 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 deviled eggs 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.

How Long do Deviled Eggs Last?

Please, please stop keeping the best deviled eggs for more than 5-6 days. They really aren’t good after that. If your deviled eggs are reaching the end of their life, turn them into something new like one of these ideas below for leftover hard boiled or leftover deviled eggs recipes.

  • 1 Teaspoon White Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey mustard
