My favorite way to make deviled eggs — sprinkled with lots of everything bagel seasoning!
After sharing my go-to classic deviled eggs recipe yesterday, I’m back today with one more version that happens to be my personal fave.
“Everything” deviled eggs! ♡
After having been on a major everything bagel seasoning kick the past few years with my eggs — sprinkling it on my hard-boiled eggs, fried eggs and scrambled eggs on the reg — it only recently occurred to me that the seasoning would probably be equally delicious on deviled eggs too. So last week, Barclay and I decided to give it a try for a weekend brunch. And sure enough, these everything deviled eggs were egg-ceptional.
Turns out that the famous sesame-poppy-garlic-and-onion blend that we all love pairs perfectly with the savory flavors of classic deviled eggs. And when made with my foolproof stovetop or Instant Pot hard-boiled eggs — up to a few days in advance, if you would like — this recipe is a breeze to prepare. Perfect for Easter, weekend brunch, or anytime you’re craving an egg-cellent batch of deviled eggs.
Let’s make some!
Everything Deviled Egg Ingredients:
To make this everything deviled eggs recipe, you will need:
Greek yogurt (or mayo): Up to you! I’m not a big fan of mayo, which is traditionally used to make deviled eggs, so I like to swap in plain Greek yogurt instead.
Lemon juice (or vinegar): I love the fresh flavor of lemon juice in deviled eggs. But vinegar (white, white/red wine, or apple cider vinegar) is the traditional option to add some tang to your eggs and would also work well.
Dijon mustard: Feel free to add in a bit more or less, depending on how mustardy you like your eggs.
Salt and pepper: Specifically, fine sea salt and freshly-cracked black pepper.
Alright, let’s talk about exactly how to make deviled eggs! I promise, they’re much easier than they might look. Simply…
Prepare your yolk filling: Slice the hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise, and scoop the yolks out into a small bowl. Mash them thoroughly with a fork, then stir in the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, Dijon, salt and pepper until completely combined. (If you would like a super-smooth filling, you can also blitz these ingredients in a food processor for a sec instead of mashing/stirring everything by hand.)
Fill the egg whites: Using either a spoon or a small cookie scoop or a piping bag (up to you!), fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture.
Sprinkle and serve: Top each of the devilled eggs with a generous sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning. Then serve immediately and enjoy!
Deviled Egg Recipe Variations:
There are about a million different ways to customize your own easy deviled eggs recipe, so great creative and have fun with them! For example, feel free to:
Add avocado: To make avocado deviled eggs, just sub in well-mashed avocado in place of the mayo.
Add some pickles: It’s often traditional in the South to make deviled eggs with relish or pickle juice, which also pairs nicely with the everything bagel seasoning.
Add some heat: Such as a pinch of cayenne, Sriracha, fresh or pickled jalapeños.
Add some cheese: Soft crumbled cheeses (such as feta or goat cheese) work well. Or grated sharp cheddar or smoked gouda would also be delicious.
Add some bacon: I’ll never argue with a lil’ sprinkle of bacon bits on top of my deviled eggs. ;)
Deviled Eggs FAQ:
How to make deviled eggs in advance: You can prepare the egg whites and filling mixture up to 3 days in advance, and refrigerate each separately in tightly-sealed containers until ready to assemble and serve.
What to do with the leftovers? Chop these up to make a deviled egg salad and serve it on some good bread!
Slice the hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the egg yolks and transfer them to a small mixing bowl*.
Using a fork, mash the egg yolks completely until they form a fine powder. Add in the Greek yogurt (or mayo), lemon juice, Dijon, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper and stir until completely combined. Taste the mixture and season with extra salt and pepper, if needed. Or if the mixture seems too thick, just add in some more Greek yogurt or a tiny splash of water.
Either using a spoon or a small cookie scoop or a piping bag, fill the inside of the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Sprinkle each deviled egg with a generous pinch of everything bagel seasoning. Then serve and enjoy immediately!
*For a super-smooth egg yolk filling, you can alternately add the yolks, Greek yogurt (or mayo), lemon juice, Dijon, salt and pepper to a food processor and pulse until completely smooth.
