The summer months mean good food and good company–just think of barbecues with family in the backyard and picnics with friends in the park. Some of my favorite southern shared foods are deviled eggs. Because I love them so much, I went on to share two recipes on my blog: classic southern deviled eggs and kimchi deviled eggs. Now, I want to share a list of some different deviled egg recipes you can make at home in preparation for summer fun! While some are more traditional, others take a new twist of this southern appetizer and potluck classic!
For those who do not know, deviled eggs, otherwise known as stuffed or dressed eggs, are a type of finger food made from hard-boiled eggs. After hard-boiling the eggs, you then peel and halve them. Finally, you fill the hard-boiled egg whites with a mixture made from the egg yolk and other ingredients. In the south, people serve deviled eggs either cold or at room temperature during potlucks and gatherings.
Different Deviled Egg Recipes to Try
So, now that we know about deviled eggs, let’s dive into some different deviled egg recipes to make at home.
1. Classic Southern Deviled Eggs
First, before getting into new and interesting takes on deviled eggs, we wanted to share the classic version. Typically, with classic deviled eggs, you make the egg yolk mixture using mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper. Then, depending on your family recipe, you may add sweet pickle relish, paprika, or cayenne to the mix or as a garnish!
Below, we shared a link to our recipe we make in my household!
2. Avocado Deviled Eggs
Of late, avocados are everywhere. People eat avocados on almost anything: on toast, in burgers, and mixed into smoothies just to name a few. Now, people have started adding avocado into their deviled eggs.
These deviled eggs, from Chungah’s blog Damn Delicious, have the flavors of cilantro, bacon, and chives to back up the rich avocado flavor. Also, for those wanting to eliminate mayonnaise, this recipe is perfect for you! The creamy avocado replaces the mayo!
In the end, follow the links below to Chungah’s blog and recipe!
3. Deviled Eggs With Caviar
For those wanting an appetizer recipe for cocktail hour, try making deviled eggs topped with caviar. This recipe is the perfect hors d’oeuvre idea for those wanting to celebrate a more elegant event.
This Food & Wine recipe uses sturgeon caviar and pimento-stuffed green olives as a garnish to top their classic creamy deviled eggs. As can be seen by the photo below, these deviled eggs are also beautiful!
4. Kimchi Deviled Eggs
Another one of our recipes, kimchi deviled eggs is a fusion between a southern classic and traditional Korean flavors. First, to make this recipe, you mix gochujang and sesame oil into the mayonnaise-based egg yolk mixture. Then, you garnish the deviled eggs with kimchi and gochugaru (Korean red pepper powder).
To me, this recipe is the perfect fusion between two cultures. In the end, you can find the link to our recipe below!
5. Deviled Eggs With Bacon and Jalapeños
To heighten classic deviled eggs to the next level, try adding bacon and jalapeños as garnishes! The bacon adds smokiness to the eggs while the jalapeños add a spicy kick! In my opinion, these deviled eggs are perfect as a game-day snack!
For this recipe, I recommend checking out the blog The Life Jolie! You can find the links to the website and recipe below.
6. Crack Deviled Eggs
In certain areas of the United States, Ranch is the go-to condiment and dressing to top food. People eat it with chicken wings, salad, and as a dip with chips. These crack deviled eggs use Ranch dressing and bacon as ingredients to make them irresistible. Like the recipe above, I recommend making these on game day or with a barbecue!
In the end, I check out Mindy’s blog Mommy Mouse Clubhouse for these crack deviled eggs. You can find the links to her blog and recipe below!
7. Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs
For the perfect brunch recipe, try making smoked salmon deviled eggs! Instead of a bagel, you will enjoy the cream cheese, lox, onions, and capers with creamy deviled eggs. This recipe is a bite-sized burst of flavors!
For smoked salmon deviled eggs, I recommend checking out Valentina’s recipe on her blog Cooking on the Weekends. You can find the links to her website and recipe below!
8. Beet-Pickled Deviled Eggs
For a colorful treat, try pickling your eggs in beet juice! By soaking your eggs in beet juice, the outside of your eggs will turn a vibrant shade of pink. Then, you can slice them in half and fill them with a deliciously creamy egg yolk mixture.
I recommend making beet pickled deviled eggs for Easter! The extra color brings a nice surprise to the regular deviled eggs. We recommend using the recipe from Epicurious!
9. Buffalo Deviled Eggs
Do you enjoy buffalo dip? If so, you will love these buffalo sauce deviled eggs!
People often use Buffalo sauce with their chicken recipes–think of buffalo chicken dip, buffalo wings, and buffalo chicken sandwiches. In deviled eggs, buffalo sauce adds a burst of flavor. Top with bacon and blue cheese, to make the perfect bite-sized treat.
For this recipe, we recommend checking out the blog How Sweet Eats. You can find the link to the blog and recipe below!
10. Sriracha Deviled Eggs
Do you like spicy food? If so, try making sriracha deviled eggs! Creamy deviled eggs are the perfect accompaniment to spicy flavors.
For those who do not know, sriracha is a type of hot chili sauce made from vinegar, chili peppers, sugar, and garlic. It has a spicy and slightly sweet vinegar taste. In Thai and Vietnamese cultures, people use Sriracha often.
