Truly the EASIEST Deviled Eggs Known to Mankind
Over the years I’ve made Deviled eggs in so many ways I’ve lost count. My family loves them all; apparently they’re not picky! As we added more kids to the family and those kids grew older and became teenagers, I’m finding getting food on the table fast is as important as ever!! So I created shortcuts, made adjustments and swapped out unnecessary ingredients until I landed on this gem of a recipe. Now this is what I make each time! Follow my tips below to make these in as little time as possible!
How to Make FAST Deviled Eggs
Here’s what I do to make FAST Deviled Eggs:
- Use store-bought hard boiled eggs. Seriously. Just do it. Don’t feel guilt or shame or anything. Just buy them. A big reason why? The yolks inside are perfectly yellow. So your deviled eggs will be SO PRETTY! No green or gray yolks here. Oh, another reason- they’re DONE. And you didn’t have to make them. Boom.
- Take the 2-3 minutes and break up the yolks into fine crumbs BEFORE you add any other ingredients. This is a trick to getting smoother filling without having to use a food processor. When you’re trying to be fast, this is important!
- Use a small cookie scoop to dish out filling into the egg halves. OMG this was life changing. Use the 1 TBSP scoop and level it slightly over-filled, if that makes sense. Then release the filling into the egg half. DONE. Are you giddy with excitement?! You should be! I did a happy dance around the kitchen when I realized how perfectly this worked! You’ll be able to fill all your halves in less than 2 minutes.
Ingredients for the Easiest Deviled Eggs Ever
Eggs: You will need 12 hard boiled eggs, store-bought. They come in packages of 2, so you’ll need 6 packages. These can be found at Costco, by the milk, or at any grocery store in the Deli section.
Mayonnaise: Adding in a ¼ cup of mayonnaise will create the perfect filling consistency.
Olive oil: Use 1 TBSP of olive oil to give more great texture and taste.
Mustard: For a bit of tangy flavor, add in 1 tsp of yellow mustard.
Pickle juice: A secret ingredient that not many know about, is adding in 1 tsp of pickle juice (or 1 tsp of pickle relish).
Onion salt: To flavor the mixture well, add in ¼ tsp of onion salt.
Pepper: Use a few shakes of pepper per your taste preference for additional seasoning.
Paprika: For sprinkling on the top of each deviled egg, use some smoked paprika.
How to make Deviled Eggs in 10 Minutes
Egg yolk filling
Begin by slicing each egg in half, lengthwise, and separate the yolks from the egg white halves. Place the egg white halves on a plate and egg yolks in a small mixing bowl.
Then use a fork to break up the egg yolks until they are fine crumbs. Don’t skip this step, it is part of the amazing results of this recipe.
Next, add in the mayo, olive oil, mustard, pickle juice, onion salt, pepper, and a few shakes of the smoked paprika. Stir until everything is well incorporated.
Proceed to use a small cookie scoop to scoop out mounded portions of filling into the cavity of each egg white half.
Top each egg off with a sprinkling of smoked paprika. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Can I add extra flavor to my Deviled Eggs?
Absolutely! I gave you the basic recipe that I use. I’m all for adding bacon pieces to the top, stir in some cheddar cheese, more pickle relish, or pretty much anything that sounds good to you. Swap out the basic mustard for spicy mustard. Top the eggs with red pepper flakes. Take your more complicated recipe and adapt it to this faster version!
HOW LONG ARE HARD BOILED EGGS GOOD FOR?
When stored properly, deviled eggs will be good in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. You will want to store them in an airtight container to keep them as fresh and tasty as possible. But really, these are so delicious the chances of having left overs is very slim.

Good question, the short answer is no. You can make hardboiled eggs at home, actually give this great oven hard boiled eggs a try.
