Festive Deviled Eggs

I've never actually made deviled eggs before this post. I've always just shown up to a cookout or family gathering ate them and thought hmm I like this flavor, I wonder what they used? There so many different ways to actually make deviled eggs... who knew?! After making them a couple different ways I finally decided on my favorite ingredients. Nope, I take that back I'm seriously torn between two different recipes! Therefore, I'm going to share both recipes and would love to hear which one is your favorite.


1st style (red colored eggs):


  • 12 large hard boiled eggs, peeled

  • 1/4 cup mayonaise

  • 1/4 cup sour cream

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill or Chives


  1. Cut eggs lengthwise in half. Remove yolks to a bowl. Reserve 20 white halves. Finely chop remaining 4 white halves.

  2. Mash yolks with a fork. Add chopped whites, mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper; mix well.

  3. Spoon 1 heaping tbsp of yolk mixture into each white half and Serve.


2nd Style (blue colored eggs):

Thank you to my coworker's mom for this recipe:)


  • 8 large hard boiled eggs, peeled

  • 2 tbsp Miracle Whip

  • 1-2 tbsp Sweet Relish (can vary depending on taste)

  • Tony's Seasoning


  1. Cut eggs lengthwise in half. Remove yolks to a bowl.

  2. Mash yolks with a fork. Add miracle whip and sweet relish.

  3. Spoon 1 heaping tbsp of yolk mixture into each white half.

  4. Sprinkle top of eggs slightly with Tony's Seasoning.

  5. Serve


How to Make Hard Boil Egg:

  • Place eggs in a saucepan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Heat over high heat just to boiling. Remove from burner. Cover Pan. Let eggs stand in hot water for about (12 minutes- Large eggs, 9 minutes- medium eggs, 15 minutes- extra large eggs). Drain. Shock the eggs in a bowl of ice water to cool them immediately. They are easiest to peel right after cooking.


How to Color Egg Whites:

  1. Place egg whites in a jar or tall cup (for each color).

  2. Combine 1 cup of hot water, 1 tablespoon white vinegar, and desired food coloring into a bowl or cup.

  3. Pour color mixture into the egg white jar/cup covering them completely. Let stand for 2-10 minutes depending on desired darkness.

  4. Remove color egg whites with a slotted spoon.

  5. Pat the colored egg whites dry with paper towel. Then they are ready for the yolk mixture.


I colored my eggs red and blue to achieve a 4th of July look, but you can color them any color based on what football, birthday, or cook out party you're hosting. Let me know which recipe is your favorite.

Much Love, Reba Faye
