What ingredients do I need to make this dill pickle deviled egg recipe?
To make these deviled eggs, you’ll need:
- Dill pickle. We minced up one of our favorite dill pickles, but you can also replace the pickle with an equal amount of dill pickle relish.
- Yellow mustard.
- Pickle juice. If you’re using relish instead of minced pickle, or otherwise don’t have pickle juice, you can use a small amount of white vinegar or apple cider vinegar instead of the pickle juice. We recommend starting with a very small amount (1/4-1/2 teaspoon), and increasing as needed. Straight vinegar is much more tart than pickle juice!
- Fresh dill.
- Salt, black pepper, and paprika.
Protip: Swap Smart!
Not a mayo fan? Try plain Greek yogurt in place of the mayonnaise!
Do deviled eggs contain mustard?
Yep, we call for a bit of yellow mustard to balance out the richness of the egg yolks and mayo. But don’t you worry, mustard haters—it is mostly there for a little tanginess, not actual mustard flavor!
What is the best method for boiling eggs for deviled eggs?
The best method for boiling eggs for deviled eggs is…steaming! Fill the bottom of a pan that will fit all the eggs with a few inches of water, and bring to a boil. Gently add the eggs into the water, or place them in a steaming basket that fits the pot. Cover with a lid and steam for 11 minutes.
Transfer the eggs to an ice bath to shock them and stop the cooking.
Protip: Get perfect yolks!
Eleven minutes should give you eggs with creamy, slightly firm yolks. Increase the time if you’d like firmer yolks.
How do you break up egg yolks for deviled eggs?
A fork or the back of a spoon is typically the simplest way to mash up the egg yolks. But if you want a super smooth texture without investing a lot of arm power, try using an electric mixer or fine mesh sieve.
What is the best way to fill dill pickle deviled eggs?
The simplest way to fill deviled eggs is with a small spoon, but if you want to get a little fancy, break out the piping bag with a wide tip! If you don’t have a piping bag, fill a zip-top plastic bag with the filling and snip off the corner with a pair of scissors. Voilà! DIY piping bag!
How do I store the leftovers?
Leftover deviled eggs can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two days. Garnish just before serving.
