Because we have ducks and chickens, we are always the ones who get to bring deviled eggs to parties, cookouts, and get-togethers. Thankfully, they are one of my kid’s favorite summertime foods. They work just as well for a summer barbecue as they do as a side for Easter dinner.
Herbed Deviled Eggs Recipe
I generally use the same recipe every time but when I saw the Herbed Deviled Eggs recipe in the 5 Easy Steps to Healthy Eating cookbook, I was intrigued because it uses Greek nonfat yogurt instead of mayonnaise. I’m always looking for a way to cut down the fat content in what we eat.
Deviled eggs is another recipe that you can really customize the way you want to. My son-in-law likes this deviled egg recipe with hot sauce. I prefer my deviled eggs with chives and dill.
These are absolutely delicious. I couldn’t even tell that I had used nonfat Greek yogurt instead of the traditional mayonnaise in the Herbed Deviled Eggs recipe. I’m definitely going to make this herbed deviled eggs recipe again this summer!
My husband said these are the best-deviled eggs he’s tried which certainly says something! Of course, you can still make this herbed deviled eggs recipe with mayonnaise if you want to as well.
What herb is good in deviled eggs?
You may want to try dill, chives, chervil, or parsley. My particular favorite is dill.
Can deviled eggs be made a day ahead?
If you are preparing herbed deviled eggs for a celebration or potluck, you might want to make them ahead of time. So, if this is your plan, then they can absolutely be made up to one day in advance.
If you are planning on making them ahead of time simply follow the directions provided below. Once they have been cooked and the filling and garnishes have been added, place them in a large Ziploc bag or storage container and refrigerate. When it is time to serve simply remove them from the refrigerator and serve.
The best way to transport deviled eggs
One of the biggest hassles of taking deviled eggs to a party or event is transporting them. I cannot tell you how many times I have accidentally tipped the plate just a little bit too much to the side and lost a few eggs on the ground.
I love this deviled egg carrier when I have to bring them to another person’s house. It keeps them all in one place with no possibility of an accident. When I’m entertaining at home, I use this deviled egg plate to keep them upright and separated.
How long will deviled eggs last in the fridge?
According to the USDA, you should eat any egg dish within 2 to 3 days of making it. Only make as many as you think you will eat in that time period. Serve them within two hours of removing them from the refrigerator.
Can you freeze deviled eggs?
The prepared eggs won’t freeze well. If you try, you will notice that the egg white will taste rubbery when you thaw it out. It’s best not to freeze these herbed deviled eggs.
