Do you love deviled eggs??

Oh good, me too!

For my part of the menu, I made deviled eggs three ways.

There is a traditional version, bacon truffle and avocado cilantro.

They are all so yummy and super easy to make.

let me show you how I made them

For all of these recipes, you will want to first boil your eggs.

Don’t you hate it when you boil the eggs, then can’t get the peel off without destroying the egg?

Yeah, me to!! So, I am going to share a fool proof way to avoid this.

First of all, you will fill a pot with water and bring it to a boil.

When the water boils, you will gently lay the eggs, one at a time, into the boiling water. Be careful not to crack the egg.

Let the eggs boil for about 11-12 minutes. Take them off the heat and drain the water.

Gently tap each egg to crack it, then place back in pot.

Fill the pot with cold water and some ice cubes and let sit about 5-10 minutes. They will cool down and you will be able to handle them to peel them.

They should peel easily and not damage the egg.

Before, I share the recipes, I want to show you a cute way I like to serve the eggs.

I like to use the cardboard carton the eggs come in.

I tear off a piece of lettuce and line each cup of the carton.

Next, you will place an egg half in each of the spaces in the carton.

Be sure you cut the eggs in half across the center of the egg (between the top and bottom) instead of long ways.

They will fit in each egg cup better this way.

After your eggs are hard boiled and peeled, you will cut them in half.

Again, I cut mine in half between the top and the bottom of the egg, instead of long ways, which is a bit more traditional.

This way, they will fit in the carton better, if you choose to serve them this way.

Next, gently scoop out the yolks and place in a bowl large enough to add your other ingredients.

If you are making all three variations, you will want 3 different bowls. Divide your yolks evenly between the 3 bowls.

For traditional/classic deviled eggs, you will add the ingredients below to 6-8 egg yolks…..

1 teaspoon salt
ground pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dill weed
3 heaping teaspoons capers
2-3 tablespoons dill pickle relish
1/4 cup mayonaisse

Mix all ingredients together.

I use a decorator kit (like a piping bag) and add the mixture to each egg half. You can certainly just spoon it in, if you don’t have a cake decorating kit/bag.

Top each egg with a sprinkling of dill weed.

avocado cilantro deviled eggs

For avocado cilantro deviled eggs, you will add to your yolks…..

1 large ripe avocado, mashed
1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sour cream or plain greek yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

Mix all ingredients together with the egg yolks, and spoon or pipe into egg halves.

Garnish the top of each egg with a small leaf of cilantro.

bacon truffle deviled eggs

For the bacon truffle deviled eggs, you will add to your yolks…..

1/3 cup mayonaisse
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon truffle oil
2 finely chopped green onion stems
dash of tabasco or any hot sauce you like

Mix all ingredients together with the egg yolks, and spoon or pipe into egg halves.

Top each egg with a piece of bacon for garnish.

deviled eggs 3 ways

I made 1 dozen traditional eggs and served in a 12 count egg carton.

Since I only made 6 each of the other 2 varieties, I cut one of the egg cartons in half to serve those.

To label each variety, I used my dymo label maker. I used gold tape with white lettering in my label maker and added the label to a piece of brown cardstock.

Cute bunny place card holders held the names of each variety of deviled eggs.

I hope you enjoyed the recipes for these delicious deviled eggs 3 ways.

blessings and Happy Spring,

  3. I like the creative way in serving for I’ve never thought of using the actual carton. However, as much as I’m an environmentalist, I think I would use the Styrofoam containers fearing the cardboard would be impacted by the lettuce? Do you find this to be true? Never thought of cutting the egg the other way either, because I’ve always done the ‘traditional way’ as you say. Yet, I’m game for something new and will do this when making these for Easter. Thank you so much!! and HAPPY EASTER to you/readers!!

    1. I have never had an issue using the cardboard. But, I am typically making them and serving fairly quickly, so I don’t think it would be a problem if they don’t sit too long.
