Keto Deviled Eggs just might be my favorite food on the planet.
As I researched different ways of making deviled eggs, I quickly realized that our family recipe is unique… and…
I had put my own twist on it…
In fact, my sister and my mom make these just a little bit differently.
According to my husband and my three picky teenagers, mine are the best.
And they aren’t afraid to tell me they don’t like stuff I make!
so… I went with my recipe.
The thing was…
I had NEVER measured my ingredients when I made them!!
So, in my test batch, I had to figure out measurements… that was a little tricky. But, I’m sure my kids will appreciate that this is documented if they someday learn to cook!
When I filmed the video, I had 15 eggs but they were more of a medium sized egg than a large sized egg. So, these ratios are correct for a dozen regular (large) sized eggs.
If you're working with farm-fresh eggs that are more of a medium sized, then this works for 15 eggs.
Keto Deviled Eggs
- Start with cooled, hard boiled eggs
- Cut each egg in half long wise and remove the yolk from the egg white. Place yolks in a small bowl that will be good for mashing later.
- Mash the egg yolks in your bowl with a fork until you have very small pieces of mashed yolk.
- Fill each egg white shell with the egg mixture.
- These will keep covered in the fridge for 3-4 days. The trick may be making them last that long!
The cool thing about deviled eggs is that they are REALLY difficult to mess up. So, I wouldn’t sweat it.
In this keto deviled egg recipe, I sometimes use ¼ tsp of white pepper and other times use ¼ tsp of lemon pepper. It really just depends on my mood and what we have on hand.
Filling the Keto Deviled Eggs
For filling the keto deviled eggs, I decided to try the ziploc bag method. I really found it less messy and quicker than the traditional “spoon-filled” method.
To do this, you just fill a ziplock bag in one corner (as shown on the video) and then cut the corner off. Then pipe in your filling however you’d like. I go for the quick and done method 😛
Keto Deviled Eggs… The Perfect Food?
This deviled egg recipe is one of the most requested foods in our home. We don’t just eat these for special occasions. After all, an egg is a perfect food…so why not eat more of them!
We hope you love these as much as we all do.
The Best Way To Hard Boil Eggs
Figuring out the very best way to hard boil eggs has been an ongoing conversation in my family for years. I’ve tried all the different methods and return time-and-time again to how my mom taught me to hard boil eggs. I believe this is the method found in Joy of Cooking.
Place your eggs in the bottom of a pan and then cover them with water so they are covered by at least a half inch of water.
Place the pan, covered, on the stove top and bring water to a boil.
Remove the cover from the pan and reduce heat so that the water continues to boil gently. You want to avoid the eggs dancing around too much.
Boil for 10-12 minutes.
While boiling, prepare an ice bath (ice & water) in a large bowl.
