Deviled Eggs with Relish

In my family, these deviled eggs are a must-have at every holiday gathering or potluck. We never miss serving them during Christmas and Easter because they are simply that delicious!

What sets these deviled eggs apart from the traditional version is the addition of pickle relish. The sweetness and flavor of the relish complement the mayo, mustard, and egg yolk beautifully.

You must give this recipe a try at your next holiday party!

What is in deviled eggs?

The deviled egg mixture consists of hard-boiled egg yolks mixed with mayonnaise, yellow mustard, and sweet pickle relish. The mayo brings a creamy richness, the mustard adds a delightful tang, and the relish contributes a wonderful sweetness and texture.

How to make deviled eggs with relish

Contrary to popular belief, deviled eggs are actually quite easy to make. Let me walk you through the process.

Step 1 – Make hard-boiled eggs

Start by following my foolproof recipe for Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs. This guarantees tender egg whites and fluffy yellow yolks. I also share tips for easily peeling the eggs to get smooth, clean whites.

Step 2 – Remove the yolks

Once the eggs are boiled and peeled, cut them in half lengthwise. Gently remove the yolk halves and place them in a mixing bowl. Set aside the egg white halves for now.

Step 3 – Make the deviled egg mixture

Add the mayonnaise, mustard, and relish to the yolks. Mix everything together until smooth using a hand mixer, whisk, or fork.

Taste the mixture and season with salt and pepper according to your preference.

A hand beater is a great tool for achieving a creamy deviled egg mixture.

Step 4 – Fill the egg whites

To fill the egg whites, I recommend using two spoons. Use one spoon to scoop out the deviled egg mixture, and use the back of the other spoon to scrape it into the egg. This method is quick and easy.

Two spoons are a quick and easy way to fill the egg whites.

Alternatively, you can use a plastic bag to fill the egg whites. Simply fill the bag with the deviled egg mixture, then cut a small hole in one corner. Squeeze the bag to release the mixture into the egg pockets. If you prefer, you can also use an official piping bag.

If you have any leftover deviled egg filling, feel free to add more to any eggs that have less filling than the others.

Step 5 – Garnish

Finish off the deviled eggs with a dusting of paprika, and you’re done!

The paprika adds color and enhances the presentation of the eggs. Don’t worry, it won’t make the eggs spicy or smoky, unless you accidentally dump the entire jar on them, like we seem to have done in this photo!

How far ahead can you make deviled eggs?

For the best results, prepare deviled eggs no more than 24 hours in advance. While they can be safely stored in the fridge for up to two days, the flavor may diminish over time.

Additionally, if you plan to top your deviled eggs with any crunchy garnishes, it’s best to add them right before serving.

If you want to save some time, you can boil and peel the eggs up to 6 days before your party. Just store them in an airtight container, loosely wrapped with a damp paper towel.

Deviled egg variations

Deviled eggs are highly versatile and can be customized in various ways. You can mix the egg yolks with almost anything. Here are some of my favorite variations:

  • Classic: Mayo and mustard. Skip the relish to create the classic deviled egg.
  • Jalapeno: Mayo, mustard, and diced pickled jalapeños (including a little jalapeno juice).
  • Buffalo: Ranch (or blue cheese) dressing, buffalo sauce, and minced celery.
  • BBQ: Mayo, BBQ sauce, and minced onion.
  • Ham & Cheese: Mayo, mustard, minced ham, and shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Bacon: Mayo, mustard, and diced cooked bacon.

Alternatively, you can create an egg salad version that you can spread on toast or use for sandwiches.

Are deviled eggs keto-friendly?

Classic deviled eggs made with just mayonnaise and yellow mustard are keto-friendly and low-carb.
