Deviled Eggs Three Amazing Ways: Healthy Avocado, Plain, or Spiced.


Deviled eggs are a part of every North American family, from devilled eggs on summer picnics to devilled eggs celebrating Ukrainian Easter. But this traditional appetizer food is the best snacky egg idea ever!

So how do you make the perfect deviled egg? Is there are right and wrong way to do it? Nope! But here’s the thing if you don’t have those eggs hardboiled right, you will run into some issues. How long is enough time to have them at a rolling boil? Some say 8 mins; others say 10 mins. Guess what? The timing depends on the size of the egg you start with.

If you snagged inexpensive small-sized eggs, you could expect them to be cooked perfectly after just 6-8 mins, whereas a large egg can take up to ten. Play around with lengths of time on your stove to determine what is the best for you. Remember you want a lovely lemon yellow yolk when fully cooked through.


Making great deviled eggs every time!


Today I am sharing three delicious ways to make your deviled eggs. The first way, the healthier version, is the avocado egg. It’s a relatively straightforward mix of avocado and egg yolk. Some people like to use a piping bag to fill the egg whites, and while it does look fancy, this mom usually opts to use a teaspoon. Ensure you add enough of that delicious filling to round up over the edge of the egg white base.

Note: If your avocado egg mix seems dry, add a tiny amount of olive oil to get it creamier.



The second way we did our deviled eggs was plain. Again, nothing can beat the basic mayo, egg yolk filling in this creamy smooth egg mixture. Each egg is filled to perfection and screams deliciousness!

This last method of making deviled egg filling is spiced. In this instance, we mix mayo, yolk, and a blend of cumin, dry mustard, black pepper, and paprika to get a delicious, more exotic-flavored devilled egg.



Whatever way you choose to fill those eggs, we are sure you will have rave reviews! So make sure you hardboil enough eggs for your guests. Additionally, a general rule of thumb is one hardboiled egg person.

Be sure to save these recipes for Easter morning and celebrate like the Ukrainians with devilled eggs and kielbasa. This savory Easter breakfast is complete with homemade Paska bread that is truly delicious!

What mayo is that? It looks really different to mine.

It’s Heinz Seriously Good Mayo! No we aren’t being compensated by the Heinz company. We have found that when they changed the Miracle Whip formula it wasn’t the same as when we grew up. This mayo though has a Seriously Good smooth flavor to it that can’t be beat.
