How to Make Classic Southern Deviled Eggs
First - the Egg Yolk Filling
- Slice each hard-boiled egg down the middle longways, placing the yolk into a bowl. Set eggs whites aside for later.
- Using a fork, mash all egg yolks until mostly smooth with no lumps remaining.
- Add in greek yogurt, cream, and Dijon mustard, with spices and continue using the fork to mash together until smooth and creamy.
How To Assemble
- Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill each egg white with the yolk filling. Making sure to add a healthy amount to each.
- Finish by sprinkling the tops with the remaining paprika, freshly chopped chives, and a little salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
- Place on a platter and enjoy!
What is the Best Way to Fill Deviled Eggs?
You can fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture with 2 spoons
use disposal piping bag, snip the tip-off, and place the filling inside. This is my favorite way to do it because it is easy, less messy, and no cleanup!
Be sure to be generous with the fillings in each egg white too.
How Many Days in Advance Can You Make Deviled Eggs?
I love being able to prep AS MUCH AS I CAN ahead of time for a party. These are super easy to prep ahead.
Make deviled eggs completely the day before your party and store them wrapped tightly in the fridge.
You can also make the hard-boiled eggs up 5 days beforehand. You can also prep just the filling the day before and fill the egg whites right before serving. So many options for prep!
How Long Can You Keep Leftovers?
They will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days. Just store in an airtight container in the fridge.
