Deviled Egg Dip Recipe
If you are a lover of deviled eggs like I am, you will love this super creamy dip. With a variety of deviled egg recipes on the blog you can see that I love them. I even prefer them to a fancy omelette for breakfast.
Because they pair well with a variety of foods, the number of deviled egg flavor combinations is endless. But serving them can sometimes pose a challenge. What if the egg whites are super thin on one side? Or the egg yolk isn’t just right?
What if the egg doesn’t peel easily and there are chunks missing from the whites when you fill them?
This dip solves all those problems! Not only that, but I love spreading it on avocado toast for breakfast.
Why this recipe is awesome
- No fancy piping bags or tips needed
- Great way to use up leftover hard boiled eggs
- Don’t have to worry about having pretty eggs when peeling them
- Works with many dietary restrictions like gluten-free or keto
- Perfect as a party dip but great as a spread on toast in the morning
I admit, that I buy already peeled hard boiled eggs at the store all the time. They are prefect for when I need an easy snack or breakfast on the run during busy days.
- Hard boiled eggs
- Cream cheese
- Dijon mustard
- Hot sauce
- Crackers for serving
Eggs – Use hard boiled eggs for this recipe. I like to buy already cooked eggs in the dairy section of the store as a shortcut. If you want to hard boil them yourself, check out these tips on easy peel eggs!
Mayo – Duke’s is my mayo of choice but feel free to use your favorite, including reduced fat or olive oil versions.
Cream Cheese – Be sure the cream cheese is softened close to room temperature for easier mixing. Feel free to use reduced or fat free variations.
Mustard – Dijon mustard gives a nice balanced flavor but feel free to use regular yellow mustard or spicy brown mustard.
Vinegar – White distilled vinegar is best but I sometimes use red, champagne, or white wine vinegar.
Garnishes – Paprika and fresh chopped chives add flavor, texture, and a pop of color. If you can’t find chives you can substitute sliced green onions.
How to make Deviled Egg Dip
First: Peel the hard boiled eggs and slice them in quarters. Set 1-2 egg quarters to the side to use as garnishes if desired. Place the eggs and cream cheese in a food processor and pulse a few times to get them partially chopped and mixed.
Second: Add the mayo and mustard and pulse a few more times. Scrape down the sides of the processor to ensure even mixing.
Third: Add the vinegar and the hot sauce and process until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired.
Fourth: Remove from the food processor and place in a serving dish. Garnish with remaining egg quarters, a dash or two of paprika, and a sprinkle of chopped chives. Serve with crackers and veggies.

What to serve with Deviled Egg Dip?
This dip is amazing because it can be served tons of ways. I like to place it in 1 or two bowls on a large platter and add crackers, fresh sliced, bell peppers, cucumber slices, baby carrots, and even cherry tomatoes.
Serving it as a dip is just the beginning! Spread in on burgers, add it to your tuna salad, or spread it on a slice of toast and top with a sprinkle of Everything Bagel Seasoning. It makes a fun breakfast or afternoon snack.
Can I make it ahead of time?
You can make it up to 2 days ahead of time. Keep in an air tight container in the refrigerator. I recommend storing the garnishes separately and then adding them just before serving.
How long does it last?
If you happen to have leftovers, keep the egg dip stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 2 days. Give it a quick stir before enjoying.

Tapas Tips & Tricks
- You can substitute sour cream for the mayo or the cream cheese but use the full fat version of the dip will be too thin.
- Sweet or dill pickle relish will give this recipe a “Southern” twist.
- Want more texture? Keep out a few of the egg quarters and rough chop them. Sprinkle on top or fold into the dip at the end.
- Make it heartier by adding crispy crumbled bacon or finely shredded cheese.
- Leave off the garnishes if making ahead of time and add just before serving.
- Use a garlic cheese spread like Boursin instead of the cream cheese.
- Don’t have a food processor? Try chopping the eggs into small pieces and mash with a fork.
