Making the Best Deviled Eggs is something that everyone tries to strive for during the summer months. Or maybe, it’s just me? I love deviled egg recipes and with my Instant Pot, peeling the shells is a breeze!

Best Deviled Eggs

Learning how to make deviled eggs should be a course in home economics. Or at the very least be something everyone learns to do before becoming an adult.

With eggs being cheap, and the recipes being simple, it’s an appetizer that anyone could make if they tried.

Finding the best deviled egg recipe is a little more tricky. Too much mayo or mustard could make them flavorless or too flavorful.

Adding in a little sweetness with relish gives a subtle crunch and tanginess too.

Of course maybe you want a little non traditional when it comes to a deviled egg. In that case make sure to take a look at our Famous Deviled Egg with Bacon.

Oh it’s good loaded with bacon and cheese and green onions.

Best Deviled Eggs

You really don’t need much to make deviled egg appetizers! They’re a simple and basic snack that tastes great without added that much work. 

This is probably why they go over so well during BBQ season. So pair them with a plate full of Instant Pot hamburgers or Instant pot cooked hotdogs.

Don’t forget the delicious slice of juicy watermelon!

How to Make Deviled Eggs

  • In your Instant Pot, add 1 cup of cold water.
  • Place your eggs on a rack (or the trivet) that the Instant Pot came with.
  • Set it to manual pressure and then cook for 5 minutes.
  • After the cooking time has finished, allow the pressure to naturally release for 5 more minutes.
  • After that, release the remaining pressure by opening the pressure release valve.
  • Carefully remove the eggs from the pressure cooker.
  • Place the eggs in a 5 minute ice bath. This helps to shrink the eggs inside of the shell so that it will peel right off without issues.
  • Slice each egg in half and then remove the yoke and place it into a bowl.
  • Add in the mayo, mustard, pickle relish, salt, and pepper.
  • With a fork, mash the yolk and combine the ingredients together.
  • Place the mixture into a ziplock bag and then snip the corner of the bag. Now you can pipe the filling into the eggs without the mess.
  • Garnish with Paprika
  • Enjoy!

How to hard boil an egg (Stove)

  • To hard boil an egg on the stove, simply place your eggs in a pot of water. Make sure that the water is covering the eggs by at least 1 inch. You can place a lid on the pot, or choose to leave it uncovered.
  • Bring the pot to a rolling boil over medium high heat. Let it cook for about 5-7 minutes and then remove the pot from the heat. 
  • Using a slotted spoon remove the cooked eggs from the pot and immediately place them in an ice bath. Let them sit for a few minutes before removing and peeling.
  • Alternatively, you can leave the eggs under cool running water for several minutes. But, the ice bath method seems more efficient and can use less water in the long run.

How long are Deviled Eggs Good For?

Deviled eggs, once filled, should only be kept for about 2 or 3 days. Any longer than that and the ingredients tend to spoil.

Not only that, but as the eggs age, they begin to sweat which makes them very unappealing.

How to Store Deviled Eggs

I recommend using a covered egg plate (the ones with dips to hold the round shapes) for storing prepared deviled eggs.

If that isn’t available then a Tupperware style container will do. 

To store unfilled deviled eggs, keep your filling and egg whites separate. In one bag, keep your egg whites, and in another keep your filling.

Now when you go to fill them, place the egg whites on a plate and snip the end of the filling bag. Pipe the filling and enjoy.

Can I make Deviled Eggs ahead of time

You can! Depending on how long in advance you want to make them you can choose to fill now or later. You get a little longer storage time by choosing to fill just before serving.

Just make sure to keep the filling and the eggs well covered in the fridge.

Which way to cut an egg for the Best Deviled Eggs? 

The most traditional way of cutting an egg is lengthwise. This creates little egg boats to hold the filling.

It also gives every piece an almost equal amount of egg white to filling ratio.

When you cut an egg in half around the middle, you create two uneven portions. The top portion has a small dimple for holding filling, but a lot of egg white.

The bottom half can hold a lot of filling but is more fragile because the egg white is thinner.
