Our Favorite Deviled Egg Recipes
This inventive take on the classic deviled egg adds heat and brine to the mix. Created by chef Cory Bourgeois at Brick & Spoon in Lafayette, Louisiana, the crispy oyster adds plenty of textural contrast to the otherwise soft deviled egg. You can almost taste the ocean and the salty spray right before the zippy sriracha melds with the whipped egg yolk. Make these bite-sized snacks for a beach-day picnic.
Do you ever think that ham and eggs should team up in just, like, one more dish? We found it. This recipe calls for the creamy eggs and spiced deviled ham to join forces for a slightly spicy, tangy treat, originally from The Hive in the 21c Museum Hotel in Arkansas.
True to Southern roots, shrimp had to be on the list somewhere. This recipe by Lauren Utvich includes bay leaves, red onion, and bird’s eye chiles, which makes the resulting combo fresh and light. Enjoy these bites in the garden or on the patio for an evening happy hour.
Which came first the chicken or the egg? In this dish they arrive together. Here, our favorite part of the chicken, the crispy skin, tops the whipped yolk and contrasts with its silky softness. This deviled egg recipe from Mason Hereford, owner of Turkey and the Wolf in New Orleans, brings all the fun and flavor of the Big Easy.
And for those who say don’t fix what isn’t broken, try this classic and buttery-smooth traditional deviled egg recipe. Dress it up with your choice of scallions, olives, paprika, crispy bacon, or lump crab.
Crispy fried oysters atop creamy whipped yolk and a chilled and soft egg white. This deviled eggs recipe is from the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Charleston and is a combination of the traditional deviled egg with a quintessential fried oyster. Before your guests and family arrive, take a moment to fry up some oysters (plus extras for snacking). A pickled okra garnish enhances the Southern flair and brings much-needed acidity to the otherwise rich dish.
This deviled eggs recipe builds on the classic by incorporating tart goat cheese, salty melt-in-your-mouth Berkshire prosciutto, and white truffle oil. Enjoy the refined and elevated flavors with hints of ground black pepper and chives.
Plump pieces of jumbo crab decorates this deviled eggs recipe with silky remoulade sauce. Chef Ralph Brennan artfully created this recipe to highlight the remoulade’s rich Creole mustard, roasted red peppers, and spicy horseradish, all without overpowering the deviled eggs’ general essence
