I love deviled eggs, and they’re so simple to make. The recipe at its most basic is hard-boiled egg yolks mashed with mayo and mustard then spooned back into the half-egg white shells. Or if you want to be a bit fancier, piped in.
These deluxe deviled eggs have a few extra ingredients added to the filling and are perfect for Easter – serve as an appetizer before the main meal, or place on a buffet table.
You might want to make a few extras, as people are sure to grab a few extras, they’re just THAT good!
Deviled eggs or devilled eggs, also known as stuffed eggs, Russian eggs, or dressed eggs, are hard-boiled eggs that have been shelled, cut in half, and filled with a paste made from the egg yolks mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard.Wikipedia
Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
