Basic Deviled Eggs with Four Variations
March 30, 2021
Take your deviled eggs game to the next level by making them four ways! Add irresistible flavor to your classic deviled eggs with unique variations like smoked paprika, Bloody Mary, Everything Bagel and Tex-Mex.
Separate the yolks from the whites and put yolks in a small bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork or pastry cutter until there are no lumps. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper, and stir until combined.
Arrange egg whites on a platter. Using a pastry bag or by dolloping, fill the whites with the yolk mixture. Serve immediately or wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Divide the yolk mixture into fourths to make all four variations.
1. Smoked Paprika Deviled Eggs
Fill the whites with the basic yolk mixture and sprinkle the tops with smoked paprika.
2. Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs
Add 1 teaspoon of sun-dried tomato paste (or regular tomato paste) and ¼ teaspoon prepared horseradish to the basic filling recipe. Garnish with finely diced celery (approximately one tablespoon divided over six eggs) and crispy bacon.
3. Everything Bagel Deviled Eggs
Add 1 teaspoon of everything bagel seasoning and 1 tablespoon of softened cream cheese to the basic filling recipe. Fill egg white halves with the yolk mixture and add a final sprinkle of the everything bagel seasoning.
4. Tex-Mex Deviled Eggs
Add 2 teaspoons salsa and 1-2 dashes hot sauce to the basic filling recipe. Fill the egg white halves with the mixture and top each one with a thinly sliced jalapeño.
