Deviled eggs have been around since ancient times; even Marco Polo wrote about enjoying deviled eggs while traveling in China in the 13th century!
Deviled eggs are delicious little bites of goodness. There’s nothing tricky about making them, and they’re incredibly versatile — you can serve them as an appetizer or a snack, for dinner alongside your meal, or with a side salad for lunch.
Deviled eggs are perfect when you want something to eat that’s light but still satisfying (and also delicious). They make great party food since they provide a lot of protein and are easy to prepare in large batches ahead of time.
The idea behind deviled eggs is simple: you take a hard-boiled egg, cut it in half and remove the yolk. Then you mash up that yolk with some mayonnaise, mustard, and other seasonings, scoop it back into the egg white halves, sprinkle with paprika and serve.
But since they’re so easy to make and can be loaded with calories and fat (depending on how much mayo you use), deviled eggs are often not a healthy choice when served as an appetizer at gatherings like barbecues or parties.
Luckily, there are ways to enjoy this classic dish without sacrificing your health goals — and if you want to go even further than that? There are also healthy alternative ingredients that can be used instead of traditional mayo! You’ll find some in the recipes I have selected for you below!
TIP: Make sure you refrigerate until ready to serve. Deviled eggs are best served cold, so take them out of the fridge at least an hour before serving!
You can eat deviled eggs in two different ways: by picking up the egg with your fingers or, if you’re fancy enough, by using a fork and knife. Either way works great! The best part about deviled eggs is that they are super portable (just ask my mom!) which makes them perfect snacks to bring along.
You can serve deviled eggs at any kind of gathering, including:
- Sporting events – If you’re hosting a large meeting to watch your favorite team play, deviled eggs are the perfect snack to keep everyone happy and energized throughout the game!
- Holiday parties – Whether it’s a holiday party at work or with friends, deviled eggs are the perfect addition to any gathering. They’re easy enough to make in large batches that everyone can enjoy them!
- Summer picnics – What better way than a picnic to enjoy a sunny day?
In addition to these ideas, there are many more ways to use deviled eggs. I suggest trying them on sandwiches or using them as a topping for salads and other vegetable dishes!
