I am super excited about this post. Yes, I am going to give you a great recipe, but even better than that, I am going to give you a super easy way to make fancy looking deviled eggs.

I love super easy ways to look fancy.

And to top it off? It’s a super easy way to look fancy that will cut down your amount of dishes to clean.

How much do you love me?

The Ingredients

When it comes to deviled eggs, the simplest recipe is the best.

Last Easter, I tried making some super fancy deviled eggs with 14 ingredients. My mother wasn’t about to give up her beloved recipe for  so we made both. We really love deviled eggs in our family.

My mother makes her deviled eggs with mayo, yellow mustard, and sweet pickle relish. She doesn’t measure anything, just throws it all together. She teased me a little a bit but she was nice enough to pretend not to notice when I ate all of her eggs during dinner and left mine on the platter.

I wanted to replicate her recipe for you today but when I went to buy the sweet pickle relish, I made the mistake of reading the ingredients.

High Fructose Corn Syrup.


I am a little opinionated on the subject of hidden sugars and I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it. If I am going to eat concentrated sugar on Easter, give me a Cadbury Egg, don’t give me a deviled egg.

Dill pickle relish did not have the problem ingredient so I went with that instead and had to make some modifications.

Every family has their own deviled egg filling recipe. Take from my recipe what you will and modify what sounds good to you.

Deviled Eggs Filling

4 egg yolks
1 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dill pickle relish
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Sriracha
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon honey

Tips for Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

Manatee and I eat almost a dozen hard boiled eggs each week. It’s one of our go-to snacks, salad toppers, and meals. Here are some tips for peeling your hard-boiled eggs.

Tap the egg lightly on the counter to start to break apart the shell.

Roll the egg on the counter to separate the shell from the egg.

The next step I wasn’t coordinated enough to take a picture while doing it…

Peel the egg under running water. 

Super Easy Fancy Method

You need two things for the super easy fancy method (that’s the technical term): scissors and a ziplock bag. 

Place the yolks in the ziplock bag.

Add the rest of your ingredients.

Seal the bag and smash the ingredients together.

Snip a corner off the bottom on the bag. 

Push filling towards bottom of the bag  and pipe filling into eggs.

Now, doing this with one hand while taking a picture was a little tricky. I promise your eggs will be neater.

 I found that it worked best when I pushed the tip of the bag on the bottom of the egg white and then piped the filling into the egg.  

Top with desired garnish.

I used chopped sun-dried tomatoes. I also recommend chopped green onions or paprika.

Recipe Review:

I read about this in one of those write-in sections of a 2005 Cuisine at Home magazine. I had doubts that it would be THAT easy when I read it.

My doubts were erased. It is THAT easy.

I am the most un-crafty person ever. When I was in fourth grade, my teacher held up my art project and told the class to ‘not do it like Kimberly.’

True story.

If I can do this while photographing myself, then you can do this. Trust me.
