12 Easy Deviled Eggs Recipes To Make With Your Leftover Easter Eggs

Every year, I promise myself that I'll refrigerated my colored Easter eggs. I love how much fun it is to decorate those hard boiled eggs, and the hunt itself is more exciting to watch than it is to participate! The worst part of the experience is that feeling of dread I get when I know I'm wasting so many good hard boiled eggs. It's not a complete waste - everyone was so excited as we cheered them on with clues! - but imagine if you could repurpose those eggs for your favorite easy deviled eggs recipes.

This year, I'm making a few dyed Easter eggs (because some always get lost in the hunt!) and I'm keeping them in the refrigerator. As soon as the hunt is over, back to the fridge they go so I can have some fun with deviled eggs! In fact, I might even whip some up early to serve along with Easter brunch. The hardest part of Easter this year will be choosing which easy deviled egg recipe you want to make first.

1. Classic Deviled Eggs

It doesn't get better than the classic deviled egg recipe, where the egg whites are left plain so they can be a vessel for the delicious yolky filling. Combine the egg yolks with mayonnaise, white vinegar, yellow mustard (or, Dijon mustard if you prefer), salt, and pepper before piping the yolk mixture back into the egg white halves. Don't worry if you don't have a piping bag - you can use a ziplock bag with the corner cut off! Top with a sprinkle of paprika and your perfect appetizer is complete!

6. Avocado Deviled Eggs

This Keto and Paleo-friendly treat really elevates the classic deviled egg. Avocados and cilantro are whipped up in the yolk mixture, giving the filling a bright-green appearance and a creamy texture. This would look especially good in those blue and yellow Easter eggs!

A topping of sriracha or hot sauce would be fab with these.

7. Spicy Deviled Eggs

Sometimes, you need to add a little spice to your life. Adding jalapeños to the yolk mixture and as a garnish on top will certainly do the trick! If you like a little spice but don't want your mouth to be on fire, add a dollop of sour cream to the top of each egg to cool things down.
