The Best Way to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs
Over the years, I’ve tried a bunch of ways to hard-boil eggs. I’ve tried starting eggs in cold water, starting eggs in boiling water, adding vinegar to the pot, even piercing the eggshells with a pin. But my favorite way to hard-boil eggs — hands down — is in an Instant Pot. If you have an Instant Pot and want to learn the method for perfect hard-boiled eggs, check out this post: Instant Pot Boiled Eggs. You’ll get easy-to-peel eggs with tender whites and creamy yolks, every time.
You can also make great, easy-to-peel, hard-boiled eggs on the stove. I like to use the hot-start method to make stovetop hard-boiled eggs. To do this, you’ll first bring a large pot of water up to a rolling boil on high heat. Then, once the water is boiling, add the eggs. I like to do this with tongs or a slotted spoon to avoid any splashing water. Simmer the eggs for 12 minutes, and after they have cooked, take the pot off the heat and immediately transfer the eggs to an ice bath.
Either of these two methods will give you easy-to-peel the eggs. Now, you’re ready to start making Loaded Deviled Eggs.
Ingredients for Loaded Keto Deviled Eggs
This recipe starts off with, you guessed it, hard-boiled eggs. To make the filling, you’ll need a few more ingredients:
- sour cream
- Dijon mustard
- sharp cheddar cheese
- crispy bacon
- salt and pepper
And that’s all you’ll need! If you’re serving these for a party, you may want to garnish them with some parsley or fresh chives, too!
How to Make Keto Deviled Eggs
This recipe for loaded deviled eggs requires only a handful of ingredients and takes almost no time at all to prepare.
The first step in making deviled eggs is to hard cook your eggs. You can do this two ways: boiling them in a pot of water for 11 minutes, or following my guide to making hard-boiled eggs in an Instant Pot. After the eggs have cooled, peel them and slice them in half lengthwise.
Then, make the filling. It’s as simple as mashing the yolk with the rest of the ingredients. If you like, you can reserve some of the bacon to sprinkle on top at the end.
How To Fill Deviled Eggs
There are a few different ways you can get the filling back into the egg white halves. A small spoon works just fine to scoop the egg yolk filling into the white. It might be a little messier, but they’ll taste just as good!
But if you’re looking for party-perfect results, you can use a plastic piping bag to pipe the filling into the egg whites. You don’t even need a real piping bag — you can just scoop the filling into a zip-top plastic bag. Then, seal the bag, squeeze the filling into a corner, and snip off the corner of the plastic bag to make an opening. Use the opening to squze the filling into the egg halves. It’s a lot easier to do than it seems — and it’s less messy!
Storing Keto Deviled Eggs
One of the great things about Keto Deviled Eggs is that you can make them ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them. You can make these deviled eggs up to 2-3 days in advance and store them in a well-sealed container in the fridge. You can store them already filled, or fill them right before serving.
In addition, unpeeled hard-boiled eggs (still in the shell) can be refrigerated up to one week. Peeled hard-boiled eggs can also be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container for one week.
But, remember! Deviled eggs should only be stored a maximum of 2 hours at room temperature.
