5 deviled egg recipes to use up all those Easter eggs
It happens every year—you buy a dozen or more eggs to boil, dye, hide and seek, only to find yourself surprised to find them back in your fridge after the Easter fun is done.
Now, for the moment, let’s put aside the question of, “Well, where did you think they were going to end up?” (It’s self-patronizing at worst and unhelpful at best.) Instead, let’s ask ourselves, “What could we do with them that’s yummy?”
After all, hard-boiled eggs take quite well to being doctored up—most notably in the form of deviled eggs. So we’ve gathered up five delicious deviled egg recipes that will not only help you get rid of those eggs fast, but might also have people asking you how you made them.

Classic Deviled Eggs
Of course you know we have to start with the classic. Just in case you’re looking for a solid, basic recipe for picky egg eaters.
Hot tip: Some people put sweet pickle relish in their yolk filling. If you like the sound of that, but you don’t love the texture, I’m a fan of adding just a little bit of sweet pickle juice!
Bagel and Lox Deviled Eggs
Add a brunchy twist to your deviled eggs by adding classic flavors found in a bagel and lox tray. The extra protein will keep you full all morning long.
Hot tip: Smoked salmon can be pretty salty, so it’s good to be a little conservative with the amount of salt in the yolk mixture.
Thai Curry Deviled Eggs
We LOVE this one. The coconut milk and curry paste transform this take on deviled eggs into something completely different, in a good way.
Hot tip (literally): While red jalapeños make for a prettier garnish, they are typically hotter than the less ripened green version. Keep that in mind when serving to kids or people who aren’t hot sauce fans.
Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs
There we go, making it brunchy again. But come on, they’re eggs! Simply add flavors you’d find in your fave boozy brunch cocktail to a deviled egg and voila—deliciousness.
Hot tip: Feel free to go as overboard with toppings as you would on your cocktail. Bacon? Shrimp? It’s allllll good.
BBQ Chicken Deviled Eggs
Welp, we did it—we made the best deviled egg ever. You might be tempted to ask, “Isn’t that a bit much with the poultry?” To which we’d ask in return: “Has adding fried chicken to anything ever ended badly?” Exactly…no.
Hot tip: Get those chicken tenders nice and crispy. They make a great texture addition. And if you do pickles with your chicken, they’d go great here, too!
We hope you love these deviled egg recipes just as much as we do…and that you’re able to clear out some Easter eggs in the process.
