I’m going to be honest- I struggled to name these. They’re savory, a little sweet, and have a hint of spice. They have a perfectly soft texture, a hint of crunch from the topping, and you can’t eat just one. Really, I ate 4 just while making these. So, I sat and I thought about how I would describe these and one word came to mind – perfect. These really are the perfect deviled eggs.

They’re also super WW friendly and make a great appetizer, side dish, snack, or meal. I love to pair these with a hearty side salad for lunch in the summer time, and they’re a hit at get togethers. Each egg (2 halves) is 0 WW SP on blue/purple plans, 2 on green. On blue and purple, you can enjoy 3 eggs (6 halves) for just 1 WW SP!

Perfectly hard boiling eggs:

One of the reasons I love deviled eggs is that they’re so darn easy. Cook your eggs, mix up your filling, stuff, and enjoy. But first things first, you need to cook your eggs the right way. There are two different methods that I use, both of which work great to ensure perfectly soft, easy-to-peel eggs.

Method 1: Boil

In this method, you’ll add your eggs to the bottom of a large sauce pan in one layer. Cover with 1-2 inches of cold water and a bit of salt and set over medium high heat. Once the water comes to a rolling boil, turn off the heat, but leave the pan on the hot burner. Cover and let sit for 10-12 minutes. Then, immediately drain out the hot water, fill with cold water (and ice), and cool the eggs down. Then just peel as you would normally.

Method 2: Air fry

Yes, you read that right. I am all about air fryer hard boiled eggs. It’s so simple – truly set it and forget it, and they come out super tender and soft. Plus, you can adjust the cook time to get more jammy eggs, etc, and they’re a cinch to peel. I prefer this over boiling. Simply place your eggs in your air fryer (mine is oven style so I put them on a tray), set to 275 F for 15 minutes for perfectly hard boiled eggs. If the eggs are really huge, 16 minutes, if they’re smaller, 13-14, etc. Then, just throw them in an ice bath, cool them down, and peel.

Making perfect deviled eggs

Now, the fun part. You’ve your your eggs boiled and peeled and it’s time to make the delicious filling and assemble! First, you’ll cut your eggs lengthwise and pop our the yolks into a mixing bowl. Then, you’ll add the following ingredients to the cooked yolks to create the creamy filling:

  • Light mayo (sub vegan mayo to omit dairy if you wish)
  • Yellow mustard
  • Coarse mustard (or use dijon if you don’t like coarse). Personally, I love the texture that the coarse mustard adds.
  • Hot sauce (Tobasco works great, but any one that you like is fine)
  • Pickle juice (specifically from bread and butter pickles or gherkins, as it’s a bit sweeter and gives these are a great hint of sweetness without adding any sugar)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Mix it all up until smooth, adjusting seasoning as needed. Then, you’ll need to re-fill your eggs. I used a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and piped in a circular motion to achieve this fun look. It takes very little effort and makes for fancy looking eggs. Then, top with a little slice of pickle (trust me, you don’t want to skip it – it adds awesome crunch), and garnish with some chives or paprika to dress them up. Voila! Perfect deviled eggs.

Instructions
 

  • Prepare hard boiled eggs using either boiling or air frying method.
    Method 1: Boil
    Add your eggs to the bottom of a large sauce pan in one layer. Cover with 1-2 inches of cold water and a bit of salt and set over medium high heat. Once the water comes to a rolling boil, turn off the heat, but leave the pan on the hot burner. Cover and let sit for 10-12 minutes.

  • Cut eggs lengthwise and remove yolks, putting all of the yolks in a small mixing bowl. Using a fork or hand mixer, break up the yolks as much as possible. Add mayo, mustard (yellow and whole grain), pickle juice, hot sauce, salt, and pepper and mix well until smooth and creamy.
  • Using a piping bag fitted with a star tip, pipe filling into each egg. Garnish with slice of pickle and some chives or paprika to finish them off. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
