Homemade paleo deviled eggs recipe

Picture this: As you’re taking a bite, you’re feeling the smooth, firm egg white that provides the perfect canvas for the rich, creamy filling inside. Made of a blend of mashed egg yolks and mayonnaise with avocado and yolk, you’re tasting a wholesome richness that you can’t get enough of. Each bite is a blend of savory, creamy, and sometimes even slightly spicy flavors that are encased in the boiled eggs – satisfying and health-conscious.

Best part? It’s a super easy recipe to make, especially if you’re in a rush to prepare for special occasions or just want a great snack! This is one of those healthy recipes that you will want to make all the time.

How to Make Paleo Deviled Eggs

Here’s what you need:

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup Paleo-friendly mayonnaise (made with avocado or olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (ensure it’s Paleo-compliant, without added sugar or wine)
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika, plus extra for garnish
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste (really just a pinch of salt and pepper)
  • Optional: Fresh herbs for garnish (like parsley or chives) or bacon bits

Tip: If you’re in the US, I highly recommend using the mayonnaise by Primal Kitchen!

Alternative Ingredients:

  • Mayonnaise – Avocado, homemade Paleo mayo (egg yolks, lemon juice, mustard, and olive or avocado oil)
  • Mustard – Stone ground mustard, wasabi or horseradish mustard
  • Seasonings and Spices – Turmeric, cumin or curry powder, garlic powder, fresh dill, chives, cayenne pepper or chili flakes, minced jalapeño
  • Protein Additions – Smoked salmon, Paleo-friendly bacon
  • Veggie Toppings – Chopped pickles or capers (sugar-free and Paleo-compliant), diced red onion or shallots, sliced olives
  • Extra Creaminess – Coconut cream, nut butters (like almond or cashew butter)
  • Garnishes – Paprika or smoked paprika, fresh cilantro or parsley, lemon zest

Making homemade mayo is actually super easy! So, don’t be afraid to experiment a little.

 

Step-by-Step Instructions For The Best Deviled Eggs

Step 1: The first thing you want to do is get hard boiled eggs – for this, place eggs in a large pot and cover them with cold water that should be about an inch high, then bring it to boil over medium-high heat. Once the water starts boiling, cover the pot and turn off the heat and let the eggs sit in the hot water for at least 10-12 minutes (more is ok, too!)

Step 2: Once the eggs are cooked, take them out and let them cool off at room temperature – if you want to speed up this process, put the eggs into a medium bowl and give them an ice water bath (this will also make the peeling easier!)

Step 3: After the eggs have cooled completely off, carefully peel and cut them lengthwise. After that, take out the hard boiled egg yolks and set them aside in a small bowl.

Step 4: To prepare the filling, mash the egg yolks with a fork before adding the paleo mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper – mix it all well until it’s smooth and creamy. Consider using an immersion blender to make it creamier!

Finally, for color, flavor, and garnish, add a sprinkle of paprika over the top – if you want to go all out, you can also add some fresh herbs like chives or parsley for extra garnishing.

Enjoy your deviled eggs on a platter and serve immediately or chilled from the fridge – to keep them fresh as long as possible, use plastic wrap and leave them in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Expert Tips for Deviled Egg Recipe

  • If the filling is too thick, add a little more mayonnaise, pickle juice, or a few drops of lemon juice to it.
  • For best results and to get that neat look on your eggs, use a piping bag with a star tip to pipe the mixture into the eggs.
  • Fresh eggs can be more difficult to peel. For easier peeling, use eggs that are a few days old – to make peeling even easier, consider giving your hard boiled eggs an ice bath where you add them to a bowl of ice water as soon as it is boiling!
  • Experiment with other additions, such as minced pickles, avocado, or bacon bits, to create different flavors and variants – create your own perfect snack!
