Deviled eggs are the go-to appetizer when I’m expecting a large crowd. People of all ages love them and I have something to curb everyone’s appetite if I’m still working on cooking other food.
The great thing about deviled eggs is that nearly everyone already has the base ingredients.
- Yellow mustard
- Salt & Pepper
- Hot sauce (just a dash)
- Sweet relish (or dill, just add a pinch of sugar)
- Paprika, garnish only
- Sliced green olives, garnish only

Best Way To Fill Deviled Eggs
I have a super-easy way to add the egg yolk mixture to the halved egg whites using a sandwich bag. You’ll transform an everyday sandwich bag into a piping bag!
Fill the mixture into the sandwich bag. Seal the sandwich bag and use scissors to cut a small opening at one of the lower corners of the bag.
Squeeze the egg yolk mixture through the opening to fill the egg whites. Easy peasy!
Now, that you know the biggest pro tip, check out our simple deviled egg recipe below.
