Making the Best Deviled Eggs

This deviled eggs recipe derives from my family recipe for Creamy Egg Salad made with pastured eggs. There are a handful of amazing flavors that make this recipe the best deviled eggs ever.

The three flavors you’re going to taste in this creamy recipe is dill relish, freshly minced garlic and smoked paprika.

#1: Choose Dill Relish for a Zing plus fresh Dill too!

Dill Relish is uses fresh cucumbers, onion, pickling salt, onion, red pepper, turmeric and dill seed. Be on the lookout for dill relish because sometimes companies add sugar – but it’s not necessary at all.

Dill relish is fermented pickles which are full of good bacteria called probiotics; which are important for gut health. I also chopped up some fresh dill to serve with the best deviled eggs ever recipe.

#2: Garlic Makes Everything Better… at least we think so!

Garlic is a wonderful antiviral and anti-inflammatory food. This recipes only calls for a little bit, but if you’re brave and want more health benefits from it – add a few more cloves! Garlic can also help to boost you immune system.

#3: Smoked Paprika – in the recipe and sprinkled on top!

Smoke Paprika is the Spanish cousin to the more commonly used sweet Hungarian paprika. Sweet Paprika ingredients include pimiento peppers that are dried and smoked over an oak fire. The pimento peppers are ground into a fine powder and perfect for seasoning these eggs.

Smoke Paprika really does add the extra flair to this dish. My favorite brand is from Trader Joe’s – but if you don’t have a TJ’s nearby, you can buy it online too.

How to Make Easy Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs

I have made 100’s of hard-boiled eggs and I have tried literally every single method to make peeling them easier. Except no, I have never baked them in the oven because the idea of “baking” an egg just seems so weird to me.

But I have boiled them in water, boiled the water first, microwaved them in water and in a steamer. I have added the eggs to ice baths both in the fridge and out of the fridge. I have tried everything.

The One Method Guaranteeing Easy Peel Eggs

With all of this trial and error, I have found the one method that guarantees easy peel eggs and the perfect timing for the most delectable, creamy yolk centers.

Steamed on the stovetop for 10-12 minutes make the PERFECT, easy to peel hard boiled eggs. It just takes a few minutes and a steamer basket or steamer pan, but these eggs are perfect every single time.

I cannot stress how important this has been to making recipes so much easier that include hard-boiled eggs.

Egg Free Mayo to the Rescue

Homemade mayo can be absolutely delicious. Ivy Larson, founder of Clean Cuisine created this recipe a few years ago and is one of the most widely visited recipes on our site. A few weeks ago, someone commented that it tasted like Duke’s, and boy was she right.

So, if you’re a fan of Hellman’s or Duke’s, you will be pleasantly surprised by the amazing flavor.
