How to Make Christmas Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs just aren’t for Christmas! My Red White and Blue Deviled Eggs are great if you are celebrating a Patriotic holiday. If you are wanting a recipe with a bit of heat, our Bacon Jalapeno Deviled Eggs are perfect. And if sage flavored appetizers are on your mind, my Thanksgiving Deviled Eggs are exactly what you are looking for!

How long is it safe to eat these?

When stored properly in an air-tight container in the refrigerator, they will be good for two days.

Is it OK to boil eggs the night before?

Yes. Prepare them as normal except instead of filling them with the egg mixture then putting them into the fridge, wait to do that until you are ready to serve them.

How do you peel an egg without the shell sticking?

I have found the easiest way is by putting the boiled eggs directly into an ice bath and letting them cool down that way.

Expert Tips, Ingredient List and Suggestions for Recipe Success

  • Eggs – ones that are slightly older.
  • Kraft Sandwich Spread – this ingredient adds a unique taste for those who don’t like a mustard tasting egg mixture
  • Food coloring – to add color to the eggs
  • Vinegar – you may want to add this to help with the color

One little tip I learned a few years ago that I think really helps add an extra flair to making any type of classic deviled eggs is to use a piping bag and tip when filling the eggs.

Honestly, it only takes a few additional moments to create eye-catching finger foods. The tip I like to use when putting the egg mixture onto the egg is the #828 by Ateco. 

Step by Step Directions

Step 1: Put the eggs into a saucepan and fill with just enough water to cover the eggs.

Step 2: Place the pan on the stove and boil the eggs on medium high heat until the water starts to come to a hard rolling boil.

Step 3: Once the water is at a rolling hard boil, remove the saucepan from the heat and let the eggs remain in the hot water for around 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 4: Carefully remove the eggs with a pair of tongs and place them into an ice water bath. By doing this, you will immediately stop the cooking process of the eggs and they will start to cool down. Leave them in the ice cold water for about 10 minutes.

Step 5: Take the eggs out of the bowl and dry them off gently with paper towels. To begin cracking the shells, gently tap the bottom of the egg on a hard surface or with the backside of a spoon. There is a little bit of air between the bottom and the egg so by cracking the shell there, you should have an easier time peeling the egg.

Step 6: Once the eggs are peeled, cut the eggs in half and scoop out the yokes and place them into a medium sized bowl.

Step 7: Next in a separate small bowl, add about one cup of water and one teaspoon of the red food coloring. Stir the mixture together. Repeat that process in a different small bowl for the green food coloring. Then to each bowl, add a tbsp. of white distilled vinegar and stir the mixture together. (This step is totally optional)

Step 8: Decide how many egg halves you are going to make green and how many red.

Step 9: Then, one at a time, place the egg halves into the color of your choice. Let them soak for a few minutes until they get the color you desire.

Step 10: Remove the eggs and let them dry on paper towels. While the eggs are drying, break down the yokes with a fork until they are a finer texture.

Step 11: Start by adding 1 tbsp at a time of the sandwich spread into the egg yokes. Add additional tbsps. of the spread until you get the desired taste that you want.

Step 12: Prepare the disposable bag with the tip and add the yolk mixture into the bag. Press the air out of the bag and proceed to fill each half of the egg with the mixture.

Step 13: Arrange the eggs as you wish on your favorite platter and place into the fridge and allow them to chill until it’s time to serve them.
