Where did the Deviled Egg Start?

According to Ancestral Findings, while the deviled egg is almost a staple at parties in the U.S., it has existed for years in other countries too. The deviled can be traced back to the Roman Empire era. In the 1400’s they began to appear in European cookbooks, and the U.S. in the 1800’s. It is just amazing; eggs continue to be so popular and a good source of nutrition yet today.

Storing Deviled Eggs

Preparing for a party? These can be made ahead of time and stored until serving. Preferably, make them the day before. However, the deviled eggs will keep well in the refrigerator 3-4 days. If your house is like mine…making these ahead of time means that I need to make extra. Little hands will sneak some.

Deviled Eggs

This deviled egg recipe is a classic recipe that has been in our family for years. Use pantry ingredients to transform eggs into a delicious snack.
Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Total Time20 minutes
Course: Appetizer, Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: appetizer, easy, Eggs, game day, snack
Servings: 12 eggs
Calories: 101kcal


  • 12 Large eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Miracle Whip or mayo I prefer Miracle Whip though
  • 1 Tbl. Dry Mustard
  • 3 Tbl. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt
  • 1/4 Tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 Tsp. Paprika for garnish


  • Place 12 large eggs in a kettle; cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low; simmer 10 minutes.
  • Drain the eggs and run under cool water to cool slightly. Peel the eggs.
  • Halve the eggs, scoop out the yolk and put that in a bowl for mixing. Place the egg whites on a platter.
  • Mash the egg yolk. I use a fork to mash the yolk.
    Mashing the Egg Yolk with Fork
  • Add the Miracle Whip, dry mustard, sugar, salt, and pepper to the mashed egg yolks. I use the fork yet to mix and incorporate the ingredients.
    Mixing Deviled Egg Ingredients
  • Fill each egg white with approximately a teaspoon of the egg yolk filling. I use two methods to fill the egg whites. One is more of an everyday method. Use a teaspoon and scoop approximately 1 teaspoon of the filling – use another teaspoon to push the filling off of the teaspoon.

  • If the deviled eggs are going to be served at a special event, then I use a pastry bag and fancy tip to add the egg yolk mixture to the egg whites.
