Deviled Eggs

I know some of you may be thinking, “Come on Des, deviled eggs? Do we really need a recipe for those?” It is true that this is a classic dish and chances are everyone has probably had them at one time or another. But since I am a sucker for deviled eggs and there are so many lying around after Easter, I thought I would share my version with you.

I have seen some very different versions of deviled eggs with plenty of exotic ingredients added to the mix, but I am a bit of a purest. With that said, I do add some cream cheese to make the filling a little creamier and a few green onions for a little flavor and a pop of color.

Deviled Eggs Recipe

Makes 12 Prep Time:


  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened, cut into small cubes
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • kosher and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • paprika, if desired



Peel eggs. Cut in half lengthwise.


Scoop all yolks into a bowl. Mash with a fork. Add cream cheese, mayonnaise, yellow mustard, granulated garlic, green onions, and salt and pepper. Stir to combine.


Scoop the mixture into each of the egg halves. (Note: To spruce the presentation up just a bit I used a piping bag for these)


Sprinkle with paprika, if desired and serve.


These are so delicious, I could literally eat them by the plateful. Enjoy! :)
