Other Holidays and Parties
At what other holidays or events can you serve these eggs? Since they are so green, think about how that color fits in the theme. Here are some of my favorite occasions just to give you a few ideas:
- Christmas – add some paprika on top for red + green
- Halloween – add edible googly eyes to make them “spooky”

Is Mayo Keto Friendly?
The only ingredient in this recipe that might not be the most Keto is the mayo. However, it is possible to find mayo that is low-carb.
All you need to do is read the label. If it has added sugar, don’t buy it or use it. You can easily find sugar-free mayo in the store.
If you want to, you can also make your own zero-carb Mayo at home.
How to Make Beautiful Deviled Eggs
How do you make deviled eggs look beautiful? The secret is to use a frosting piping bag!
You can make the filling in a bowl, then put it in a piping bag. Then, just pipe the filling into the eggs.
Some people like using different piping tips for different looks. Have fun with this step.
And garnish the tops of the eggs. This gives it a final bit of pizzazz that will help them stand out.
If you don’t care about making them look perfect, you always just spoon the filling into the eggs. That’s what I did in these pictures.
No matter how I do it, no one has ever complained about how these deviled eggs look. That’s because they don’t last long enough on the platter before they’re gobbled up.
When you make deviled eggs, you want hard boiled eggs, not soft boiled. A harder boiled egg will have a firmer egg white.
Here is my no-fail method for making the perfect hard-boiled eggs:
- Put eggs in a saucepan, cover with lightly salted water an inch above the eggs.
- Bring to a rolling boil on high heat.
- As soon as it starts boiling, turn off the heat and cover. Let sit on the burner for 10 minutes.
- When the timer goes off, remove eggs from the burner and drain the water.
- Place eggs in a bowl of ice water to cool for a few minutes.
How do you get hard boiled eggs to peel easily?
This can be super frustrating, I know! You try to peel the eggs and the egg whites break and come off with the shell.
I have a few tips that I’ve learned over the years.
- Use older eggs. The fresher the eggs, the more difficult they are to peel.
- Ice water bath. Submerge boiled eggs in ice water – this will help the be easier to peel too.
- Make pressure cooker hardboiled eggs. This method is fool-proof and hardboiled eggs have never been easier to peel.
