Ingredients Needed

Large eggs – For best results, I like to use organic brown eggs, but you can use any fresh eggs you have on hand. Hard Boil them and cool before using. Or buy already cooked eggs for easier prep.

Mayonnaise – Replace the half cup mayo with Miracle whip, sour cream, or greek yogurt as needed.

Mustard – I use equal parts yellow mustard and Dijon mustard. Substitute one for the other if desired.

Sweet pickle juice – I like the sweet gherkins, but any dill pickles will also work. 

Sugar – Since this only requires a teaspoon of sugar, you can replace it with honey or maple syrup as well.

Hot sauce – I recommend sriracha for sriracha deviled eggs, or swap with tabasco sauce for smoked eggs based on personal preference.

Paprika – A sprinkle of paprika powder is a great garnish. Replace with cayenne for a little kick. 

Pickle slices – These can be the same type of pickles as the pickle juice you choose.

Bacon – For a healthier option, try using turkey bacon, or removing it entirely to make this meal vegetarian.

Butter – The secret ingredient to rich and creamy deviled eggs. Use unsalted for best results

Pantry Staples – A teaspoon salt, and black pepper if desired.

How to Hard Boil Eggs

Want easier peeling for your hard-boiled eggs? To begin, boil water on high heat in a large saucepan and place your eggs in. Leave in for around 10 minutes.

Test out if they’re done by removing one from the pot and putting it under cold running water before trying it for consistency. 

If the egg is cooked enough, run the rest under cold water. If you are making a large batch, you can also remove each egg with a slotted spoon and place them in an ice bath.

The last step is to remove the cold eggs after a few minutes and begin peeling. Check out this complete guide to making the perfect deviled eggs!

What To Serve with Million Dollar Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs can be made a lot of different ways, which gives plenty of options based on taste. A common favorite is wasabi deviled eggs, where the eggs are topped with a small amount of the spicy paste.

Another good option is topping with green olives or green peppers for a more vegetable based dish. For a salty and sweet deviled egg, try adding a sprinkle of brown sugar rather than paprika. 

My personal favorite way to make these is by topping your white halves with a mix of yolks and Mexican street corn for a tangy flavor! 

How long are they good for?

To store, layer your egg white halves in a single line inside of an airtight container, where they will be good for up to 3 days.
