What You Need for Deviled Eggs
Medium Pot: You’ll need to pull out a medium to large pot depending on how many eggs you want to hard boil. This deviled eggs recipe calls for 6 eggs, but feel free to double or triple this recipe if you’re hoping to serve a larger group.
Or, if you’re hoping to use the extra hard boiled eggs for another recipe (we make some recos below!). Make as many as your heart desires, but make sure you have a pot big enough.
Large Eggs: This deviled eggs recipe calls for large eggs. You can use any kind of large eggs you can find, but the #1 tip we have is to make sure you use fresh eggs. Fresh eggs will cook better and taste better, too!

A Bowl of Ice Water: To create your ice bath, you need a medium bowl filled with ice and water.
Deviled Egg Filling: These deviled eggs pack a short list of super flavorful ingredients you’ll absolutely love. You’ll need: dijon mustard, plain Greek yogurt, mayo (or olive oil!), pickle juice, minced fresh dill, salt and pepper, ground paprika, and the egg yolks, of course!
How to Make Deviled Eggs — Step by Step
Now that you’ve got everything you need to make these easy deviled eggs, it’s time to get cooking!
The first step is to bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Make sure your pot is big enough to boil the number of eggs you want to cook and that there is enough water in your pot to fully submerge them.
Bring water to a boil over high heat.
ADD EGGS & COOK
Once the water is boiling, carefully add large eggs to the boiling water and continue boiling for 9 minutes.
ICE WATER BATH
Once your eggs have cooked for 9 minutes, it’s time to take them off the heat and transfer them *immediately* into a bowl of ice water for 15 minutes.
An ice bath does a few things for your eggs:
Easy to Peel: By going from boiling water to ice water in a matter of seconds, it helps peel back the membrane of the egg, disconnecting the shell from the egg itself making your eggs much easier to peel.
Bright Yellow Yolk: the quick difference between hot water and cold water helps preserve the bright yellow color of the yolk. If you don’t use an ice bath, you’ll notice that your yolks could turn brown or much lighter in color. We love to see the bright yellow color in these deviled eggs.
Prep Deviled Egg Filling
While your eggs are chilling, it’s time to make the filling! Add the following to a mixing bowl, and mix it all together:
- Greek yogurt
- Pickle juice
- Fresh dill
- Salt & pepper
Time to Peel & Slice
It’s time to peel your hard boiled eggs now that they’re completely chilled.
Since you’ve followed this recipe to a tee (we’re assuming you did 😀 ), your eggs should be rather easy to peel. We like to take the simple route of cracking the egg on the countertop to loosen the shell and then use our fingers to peel it off. However, we know there are many ways to peel an egg. What’s your go-to?
Once your eggs are peeled, carefully slice them and scoop out the yolks into your egg filling bowl.
Add Yolks to Deviled Egg Filling
Once your yolks are in your egg filling bowl, mix everything together.
Then, it’s time to carefully spoon the yolk mixture into a ziploc bag and squeeze the yolk mixture to the bottom of one corner of the bag.
Snip the corner of the bag and remove all the air from the bag by twisting the top of the bag so that the yolk mixture will squeeze easily out the cut corner.
Squeeze Deviled Egg Filling into Egg Whites
Place the hard boiled egg whites on a plate and carefully fill each egg half with the yolk mixture by squeezing it out the corner of the ziploc.
Garnish & Enjoy!
Sprinkle the deviled eggs with salt, pepper, paprika, and fresh dill. ENJOY!
How to Store Deviled Eggs
Store these deviled eggs in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. They are best when enjoyed fresh, of course, but if you’re hoping to prep the day before for a gathering, we recommend waiting to add the garnishes (salt, pepper, paprika and fresh dill) until right before serving.
