Key Ingredients

Hard-boiled eggs – Use your favorite method to cook your eggs or check out my recipe for Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs. Be sure to put the cooked eggs in an ice bath or cold water when they’re done cooking. You can boil the eggs a day ahead so all you have to do is mix and assemble come party time. Or make this entire recipe a day ahead and just pull the eggs out of the fridge when ready to eat. They taste delicious cold.

Dijon mustard – Dijon mustard is one of my favorite ingredients. On it’s own it has a spicy and pungent flavor but when added to creamy or high fat ingredients like mayonnaise it really works its magic.

Hot sauce – If you are very sensitive to heat you can leave this out. It’s not very much so it just gives the eggs a small amount of heat. You can adjust the amount to your likeness.

Mayonnaise – To make these keto and paleo deviled eggs simply use avocado oil mayo instead. This will also make them Whole30 friendly. Just be sure the hot sauce doesn’t contain any added sugar. See my list of the best gluten-free sauces.

White wine vinegar – Egg yolks and mayo are rich with a high fat content and a small amount of vinegar brightens up the creamy filling just enough to make it more flavorful.
