Deviled eggs … love eating them as long as someone else makes them. (I'm envisioning heads nodding in agreement across the world right now.)
Our favorite little eggy bites are a pain to make and end up as a smooshed messy if you try to pack them. Technically they should make the worst ever start to Back to School Snack Week ever. Except that I've found a way to take away 90% of the work in this truly easy deviled eggs recipe.
Why you'll love lazy deviled eggs
- Jammy boiled eggs that are just barely set in the middle so they're all kinds of creamy and delicious.
- Topped with traditional deviled eggs flavors.
- Each bite tastes just like your favorite deviled eggs recipe but with practically no work involved.
- Easy to pack in lunch kits.
- Boil and peel a bunch of eggs then keep them in your fridge. When you need a quick and healthy snack, cut one open and pop on the toppings. It doesn't get faster than that!
- Three different toppings to choose from: Classic, Smoky Chipotle, and Spicy Sriracha. Which would you choose?
How to make easy deviled eggs
Normally, when you make deviled eggs you need to scoop out the overcooked yolks and mix them with mayo, mustard, minced pickled, and any other flavors you love. Then you spoon or pipe the yolks back into the egg white cups.
To make easy deviled eggs, we skip that whole fussing with the egg yolk part. And since we don't overcook the eggs (not a second more than 6 1/2 minutes!) the yolks don't need to be whipped with mayo to make them taste good. A little dollop of dijon mustard a thin slice of pickle is all they need.
Here's how you'll make your easy deviled eggs:
- Boil your eggs for 6 ½ minutes then cool them in ice water.
- Peel the eggs. This part will be easy as you'll add some vinegar to the boiling water to soften the eggshells.
- Cut the eggs in half and top with a little bit of mustard and a pickle slice. If you want to get really fancy, you can sprinkle a little paprika and pepper over top, too.
Wasn't that ridiculously easy? And even though I made this recipe specifically to be an easy deviled eggs recipe, I also think they look even prettier than regular deviled eggs. Bonus!
That beauty up there is a Spicy Deviled Egg which is topped with a dollop of mayo, a squeeze of sriracha, and a few sesame seeds. It's my personal favorite. The Smoky Chipotle Deviled Eggs, topped with a little chipotle aioli, cilantro, and a pinch of paprika is my daughter's favorite. And my handsome man loves the Classic Deviled Eggs, topped with dijon mustard and a pickle slice, the best.
Until now, the recipe for Bacon Deviled Eggs has been the only deviled egg recipe on the blog. As much as I love that recipe (and oh boy do I ever) the simplicity of these devils wins out.
The jammy eggs are what really take this recipe to the next level. If you start with perfectly cooked eggs, you don't need to doctor them up with lots of other ingredients. Fuzz-free snacking is where it's at!
