Why put horseradish in deviled eggs? Is it spicy?

Horseradish is our secret sauce for deviled eggs. It adds a lot of flavor without adding calories. You want to use prepared horseradish cream sauce instead of raw horseradish. Prepared horseradish is treated with vinegar and salt. Creamy horseradish sauce is available in the condiment section of your supermarket.

What’s the best way to boil eggs to make deviled eggs?

The hard boiled eggs used to make deviled eggs need to be hard boiled. We’ve produced a complete guide to hard-boiled eggs, which can be found here. Pre-peeled and hard-boiled eggs are often sold at grocery stores and can be used in this recipe. They tend to be smaller and a bit more expensive.

Pro tip: Steamed hard-boiled eggs tend to be easier to peel. You can steam them in a steamer instead of boiling them in water for the same amount of time, which makes it easier to peel.

Can I use a piping bag?

Yes, of course you can. While there’s no need to pipe the filler, it does look prettier. It’s just a matter of personal preference.

Note in advance:

We recommend making the filling and squeezing it into the shells just before serving, however, you can always fill them up to 12 hours in advance. Be sure to store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator to prevent a crust from forming on the top.
