Make the best ever {secret ingredient} Deviled eggs

With Easter on the way, there are a lot of hard boiled eggs around.  Let me tell you, I make the BEST deviled eggs ever!!  So good that I get requests to bring them to family parties all the time.  I know for sure I am bringing deviled eggs to Thanksgiving with the hubbs family every year.   What makes them so stinking awesome…it’s one secret ingredient.  And I will happily share it with you!!

I make these so much that I had to invest in a deviled egg carrier.  Have you ever tried to transport rolly circular eggs?  Yeah, we only did that once.

Start with hard boiled eggs.

yummy deviled eggs

Peel and rinse them.  {there’s nothing like getting eggshell in your final product.  Avoid this!!}  Then slice your eggs in half.

Scoop out all the yolks and put them into a bowl.

Use a fork to mash them up.  It’s important to get them pretty well mashed.

Now you are going to add your ingredients.  Add your mayo and mix it up.  Then comes the secret ingredient.


That’s right sugar.  But these are not sweet deviled eggs.  I prefer powdered sugar, but you can use granulated if you have to.  Make sure and mix it really well so you are not biting into sugar crystals.  Or just use powdered sugar and you don’t have to worry about that.  The amount you will use depends on how many you are making.  This was a dozen eggs.  I just shake the powdered sugar out from the bag into the bowl of egg yolks.  I put three shakes into this batch.  {I know so technical}  Really just taste it and adjust the sugar to taste.  Remember this is not a sweet mixture.  You just want a little after taste of “hum what was that, it was yummy.”  Start with less sugar, you can always add more later.  Taste as you go.

From there you can add whatever ingredients you like or leave it just like that.  I usually leave them plain but it depends on my mood.

To fill the eggs, I like to use a pastry bag.

If you do this it will make them cuter.  {I always do this}  You need to use a star tip like the ones shown above.  I usually use the more open tip but you can use either.   Do not use a regular sized tip.  You will get chunks of yolk stuck in the regualr sized ones and it will be a frustrating mess.  These are the large tips and they work great.

I fill my eggs by just squeezing downward and it makes a flower shape.

Super cute and super yummy.  You might think sugar is wierd in these but try it.  You will like it.  And remember you are not making a dessert here.  It should still be a savory item.  With a little ooh that was yummy aftertaste.

Deviled eggs are a great go to for potlucks.  They are super easy and super cheap to make.  A carton of eggs is only a couple bucks and you most likely have all the other ingredients on hand.

I hope you will try out my super secret deviled eggs and let me know what you thought.

Thanks for reading.


  1. hmmmm sugar huh… i think i might try it

  2. I love deviled eggs.

    My family tells me I make the best ones in the world. :D I also add a pinch of sugar but the regular kind. My secret ingredient is Sweet and Sour bottled dressing. About 1/4 of a cup for a dozen eggs. Mix it all up. I just “drop” a tablespoon into each half egg white. And I sprinkle the tops with paprika. Too pretty to eat.

    Thanks for sharing your how-to.

  3. I seem to be the only person I know (other than my mom, who taught me) who actually puts deviled ham in deviled eggs. it’s really good. My boyfriend insists that deviled eggs need to be made with miracle whip, I’ll admit it makes them a bit more tangy.

  4. Can’t wait to sneak that secret ingredient in my deviled eggs (or Evil Eggs, as my nephew who hated boiled eggs calls them).
    I always slice the tiniest sliver off the bottom of my boiled egg whites before filling them with the yolks. This keeps them from wobbling around and not sliding as much. Smidgen of yolk mixture on the plate under each egg is also another trick to nestle the egg halves onto that prevents sliding, too.

  5. Wow, I have never heard this. I’m living in a house full of deviled egg fans, so I can’t wait to try it on them. Thanks for sharing your secret! Lisa~

  6. I put sugar in mine too in addition to yellow mustard and a little white vinegar. Then I sprinkle a little paprika on them to dress them up. That is just the way my grandmother made them.

  7. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to

  9. loss of vision. While virtually unheard of, it does happen, especially when the infection that causes sinusitis reaches your orbital region. Some sinusitis related vision problems include but are not limited

  10. It is clear that EMR is driven by IT folks, who have forged ahead without input and guidance from those of us who will be at Ground Zero – physicians. It makes great sense to coders and billers, who don't have a clue why we physicians are hostile to 'point and click' medicine.

  11. THX that’s a great answer!
