What are Deviled Eggs?
- Deviled eggs are eggs that have been boiled then cut in half. The yolk is removed and combined with other ingredients to make a filling for the egg white. Typically, this is mayonnaise and mustard based. They are served as a cold appetizer, particularly for holidays or for parties.
- The term “deviled” refers to a spicy or zesty addition in the eggs. This probably originally came from the mustard or from pepper.
- Deviled eggs have been around for centuries, and can also be known as stuffed eggs, Russian eggs, dressed eggs, or salad eggs.
How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs
Regardless of what you fill them with, you have to start with hard boiled eggs. Growing up, we only ever boiled them, but today there are many different methods that can be used!
My favorite way to boil eggs is to place them in a large pan and cover them with enough water to cover them by at least an inch or two. Place the pan on the stove and bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Once the water comes to a boil, turn off the heat and cover the pan. Let the eggs sit for 10-12 minutes, then drain and place the eggs in an ice/water bath to cool completely.
This is my very favorite way to hard boil eggs because they come out perfect and are so easy to peel. To cook your eggs in an Instant Pot, place the eggs in the Instant Pot – I put mine on the trivet that came with the pressure cooker. Add 1 cup of water. Place the lid on the Instant Pot and lock it. Cook on manual for 5 minutes, then do a natural release for 5 minutes before releasing completely. Transfer the eggs to an ice/water bath to cool completely.
If you have a pan with a steamer insert, this is another method you can try. Fill the pan with 1 inch of water, then place the insert in the pan. Bring the water to a boil, then add your eggs and cover the pot. Cook for 12 minutes, then transfer the eggs to an ice/water bath to cool completely.
I will admit that this is not my favorite method, as it takes longer and is a lot more hit and miss for me. But if you’d like to try it, here is how you do it. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Place one egg in each muffin cup in a 12-cup tin. Bake the eggs for 30 minutes, then remove them from the oven to an ice/water bath to cool completely.
How to Fill Deviled Eggs
The easiest way to fill deviled eggs is by placing the filling in a piping bag, and then squeezing the filling into the egg whites. You can use an actual piping bag (with or without a tip), or you can use a ziplock bag with the corner cut off. My favorite is to use a disposable piping bag, as the cleanup is really simple.
If you are using a piping tip, make sure the tip is open enough if you are making a recipe that has any sort of chunkier filling.
Serving and Storing Deviled Eggs
Prepared deviled eggs can sometimes be hard to transport. (Those whites are slippery!) I always suggest filling them right before serving, but if you want to make them ahead of time, you can buy special dishes to transport deviled eggs in. I’ve seen it suggested to use an egg carton, but you’d want to make sure that it has been cleaned, as bacteria can be found on the egg shells that you wouldn’t want to transfer to the peeled eggs.
You can store any leftover deviled eggs in an airtight container for up to 2-3 days. The filling may start to dry out some before that, though, so it’s best to eat them up sooner than later.
