Deviled Eggs at Easter

It’s common to find deviled eggs at most southern dinner tables for holiday meals such as Christmas and Thanksgiving, but they’re especially a staple at Easter dinner!

Eggs are everywhere at Easter time buy my favorite has to be these chocolate eggs 😉

This dish has been present on the dinner table for centuries, but it wasn’t until the 1800s when it earned the name “deviled.” It literally meant a food that was spicy, so it’s only fitting to crank up the heat with jalapenos and sriracha!

Sriracha is one of my favorites (don’t miss these meatballs!) though it’s often not found at the dinner table. You can find deviled eggs nestled among other classics of mashed potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, a roast chicken, homemade rolls, and more.

How to: Boil Eggs

Boiling eggs does not have to be intimidating or stressful. All the tips you need for perfect eggs every time can be found in this Preparing Eggs guide.

Place eggs in a pot and fill with water. Submerge the eggs completely and ensure there is water above them too.

Bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, remove the pot from the heat and cover. Let sit for 10 minutes.

While the eggs are cooking, prepare a large bowl with ice water. Place the eggs directly into the ice bath and let sit for another 10 minutes.

Peel the shells of off the eggs and enjoy!

How to: Make the spicy jalapeno filling

The filling for these deviled eggs is very similar to a more typical filling, but with a little extra spice mixed in!

Slice the eggs in half and remove the yolk into a medium bowl, being careful not to break the cooked egg whites.

In the bowl, mash the cooked egg yolks until fine so it is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Add mayo, mustard, jalapeno, and sriracha. Stir thoroughly until combined. Set aside.

How to: Assemble Spicy Jalapeno Deviled Eggs

Next up is stuffing the egg whites with the spicy jalapeno egg filling.

This can be scooped out with a small spoon, but it always leads to such a mess and isn’t as visually appealing.

If you’re looking for presentation points, try using a piping bag or ziploc bag with icing tips! There are great designs out there that will make your deviled eggs really pop.

Top each egg with sprinkled breadcrumbs, the rest of the sriracha, and finish with cilantro.

  1. Oh my god, these look amazing! I live for eggs and have boiled eggs for lunch on most days.

    Thank you for this recipe I can’t wait to try it!


  2. I’ve never been a big fan of deviled eggs because I don’t typically care for the flavor – but add jalapeños and sriracha and I’m sold! I’ll definitely need to try these with my husband soon. He’s the king of spicy foods!

  3. I am definitely saving this recipe to try out!! I love deviled eggs but my husband only likes them made with just mayo and salt, he’s crazy. I would totally make a small batch of these and eat them by myself. Plus, I have the fun piping bags and tips to make them extra pretty. 😊

  4. Sounds amazing. Good deviled eggs are a bit of a competition in my family. At the moment, my brother is the current deviled egg guru…we shall see after I try these. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. You had me at jalapeno. And then even more with Siracha. These look amazing. We have been on a Siracha kick lately with chicken and it’s been SO good.

  7. I love eggs so of course, I also enjoy deviled eggs! And I like spice. This is a perfect recipe for me! I’m going to substitute almond flour for the bread crumbs, (gluten issues) but I can’t wait to make that sweet drizzle with my sriracha! Such a pretty presentation. This one looks like a winner. Thanks!

  8. not familiar with Easter day cooking and haven’t made this ever. but its super easy and quick. don’t know what sriracha is so i can substitute another chilli sauce i guess? thanks for sharing <3

    These look and sound amazing but unfortunately I just can’t eat anything remotely spicy. My boyfriend would love these though so I’ll make them for him instead.
