What are Deviled Eggs?
Deviled eggs are also known as stuffed eggs, Russian eggs or dressed eggs, are hard-boiled eggs that have been shelled, cut in half, and filled with paste and other ingredients such as mustard and mayonnaise. They are generally served cold as an appetizer or side dish.
Deviled Eggs Dip Recipe Tips:
- Use organic eggs, preferably from free-range chickens. Those eggs taste the best and will also have a more yellowish egg yolk.
- You can substitute the cream cheese with sour cream instead.
- If you decide to use sour cream please use full fat. To cut on the calories and use fat-free/reduced fat, please note that the dip will be more watery.
- Also, the same applies to the mayo, I prefer to use organic, full-fat mayo.
- Spicy red hot sauce can be skipped if you don’t like spicy food.
- Do NOT skip the mustard and please use high-quality mustard. The eggs are pretty plain in taste so the mustard is almost a predominant flavor in here.
- In addition, if you can’t find chives, I would suggest using green onions. A little green will add a pop of color and also some freshness to the appetizer.
- I kept the dip vegetarian, but a great mix in is bacon, just crumble a few cooked bacon strips into the dip and also top it with bacon crumbs, the result is delicious.
- Another great mix in suggestion is 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
- To make this even more fun you can add a bit of ranch powder mix and fresh dill.

Tools/Ingredients I used to make the Deviled Eggs Dip:
- Food Processor – a household must-have, makes your life so much easier and is great for chopping veggies and creating fun and easy dips
- Red Hot Sauce – optional in this recipe, but it adds a tone of flavor
- Stone Ground Mustard – mustard is a must in any egg recipe, in my opinion, it brings the flavors together
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 7 minutes Total time: 22 mins
- 12 eggs
- ½ cup mayonnaise (full fat and organic)
- 4 ounces cream cheese (full fat)
- 2 tablespoon stone ground mustard
- 1 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon red hot sauce (optional)
- 1 teaspoon chives (chopped)
- ¼ teaspoon paprika or cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon chives (chopped)
- If you have leftover boiled eggs, peel them and separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.
- If you need to boil your eggs, place them in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, boil for 2-3 minutes, after which remove saucepan from heat and let eggs cook in the hot water, using the residual heat for about 10-12 minutes. Pour off hot water and place eggs in a bowl full of ice water to cool.
- Another method would be to boil the eggs for 7 minutes, after that place them under cold water to cool.
- Peel and separate the eggs, add the egg yolks to a food processor.
- Add the egg whites to a medium bowl. Add about ½ of the egg whites to the food processor, and finely chop the remaining egg whites and set aside back in the bowl.
- Add mayonnaise, mustard, white wine vinegar, cream cheese and hot sauce to the food processor. Process until smooth and creamy.
- Transfer mixture to the bowl with the chopped egg whites. Season with salt and pepper, add chopped chives and gently stir everything together.
- Transfer to a dip serving bowl, sprinkle with paprika or if you prefer something more spicy you can use cayenne pepper.
- Garnish with chopped chives and serve immediately.
- If you want to serve the dip later, store it in an airtight container in the fridge or place in a serving dip bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Garnish with paprika and chives right before serving.
