10 “Eggcellent” Deviled Egg Recipes

I’m sure I’ve said this here at Rhubarb and Honey before, but I’ll say it again … I love eggs. Poached eggs, scrambled eggs, baked eggs, eggs basted in bacon grease, eggs benedict, omelettes, frittatas, and even huevos rancheros … you name the egg preparation, and I’m certain I’ve tried it … and mostly likely loved it.

Farm Fresh Eggs

But, perhaps my favorite egg preparation? Deviled eggs. There’s just something about the combination of the cool, hard-boiled egg white, the creamy, mustardy filling, and a pinch of smoky paprika that I just. can’t. resist. But, my love for deviled eggs goes far beyond the classic recipe … and today, I’m sharing my list of favorite deviled egg combinations with you.

Of course, we have to begin with the classic deviled egg, and this recipe from Simply Recipes is my favorite. A combination of mayonnaise, dijon mustard, shallot, and Tabasco, I think it’s the perfect classic recipe. And no, there’s no pickle relish in the classic recipe I’ve chosen … and you won’t find it in any of the recipes below. Call me names if you will, but I just don’t care for pickle relish in deviled eggs!

Okay, moving on to my favorite deviled egg recipes that go way beyond the boundaries of classic … some are sweeter, some are spicier, some have bacon, and one even contains crushed potato chips, but all are absolutely delicious.

Wait, that’s only nine deviled egg recipes you say? Well, I can’t compile a list of my favorite deviled egg recipes without including one of my own! My recipe for smoked deviled eggs was created on a whim, but remains one of my favorite deviled egg recipes to date … smokey, salty, and creamy … it’s a flavor combination that just can’t be beat.

I hope you’ve found a deviled egg recipe you want try … and no matter which one you choose, I’m pretty certain you’ll love them as much as I do!

Happy Spring!

    Thanks for linking to the sriracha eggs! They were really good. I am intrigued by a couple on your list that I can’t wait to try!

      No problem, Stacy! They sound amazing … who doesn’t love sriracha!

    Mmmm, deviled eggs!  Delicious & seasonally appropriate!  I love eggs all ways too, and deviled eggs are right up there.  Curry powder in mine, please.

      Oh, you’ve touched on the one spice I just can’t get on board with … curry. I do wish I loved it though!

    My mom taught me to make deviled eggs. We use a tiny bit of Durkee’s Sauce instead of the mustard. And I agree 100%…no pickle relish! While I do love deviled eggs, I absolutely adore egg salad. So if I’m going to take the time to boil up some eggs, they I just can’t justify turning them into those tiny deviled eggs when I could get a scoopful of yummy egg salad. One of these days I need to try making it with some local farm, cage free eggs. It’s amazing how much better they taste scrambled…I can only imagine what they would take like as egg salad.

      I’m going to have to try some different egg salad recipes. I love eggs, but I’m not a fan of mayonnaise based salads … here’s hoping I can find a mustard or oil based one I want to try! And yes, yes, yes to local eggs … it’s all Chuck and I buy!
