For years and years deviled eggs have been one of my go to recipes to bring to parties and get-togethers.  They are simple to make, let you experiment with all types of flavors, and are super inexpensive. I have tried a lot of different flavors over the year, but I never quite had the perfect deviled eggs recipe to fall back on.

I love to have them on hand at the house, too because they are an easy and healthy high protein snack!  They’re perfect for Trim Healthy Mama and would count as an S meal or snack!

I just got a really cool kitchen tool for Christmas (the Instant Pot electric pressure cooker), so, when my husband asked me if I could make up some deviled eggs the other day I got to thinking…”Could I make the eggs in the Instant Pot and make this even faster?”  And the answer is yes, for SURE!

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, that’s ok, just hard boil the eggs the way you are most comfortable!  (Skip past the instant pot instructions by clicking here.)

For those of you who DO have an Instant Pot, I’ll share how I hard cooked my eggs first:

  • I filled the bottom of the pot with 1 1/2 cups of water and placed the trivet in the pan.
  • Then I added 12 eggs arranged on the trivet and closed the pot, setting the weighted valve to “sealing”
  • I set the pot to Manual for 6 minutes.
  • Once the pot had finished cooking, I let it natural pressure release for FIVE minutes and then did  a quick release of steam.
  • Then I put my eggs into a bowl with ice water to stop the cooking process.

Note: The amount of time for your NPR (natural pressure release) will depend on your elevation.  5 Minutes is perfect for me at 4500 feet, but you may want to adjust that amount up or down depending on what elevation you are at. 

Ok, let’s talk about this deviled eggs recipe!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 dozen hard boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt (or sea salt)
  • 1/4 tsp yellow curry powder
  • 1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 6-7 TBSP mayonnaise or plain yogurt
  • 1 drop Dill essential oil*

*The Dill essential oil is optional, but is really what makes this recipe.  You could try to sub out dried or fresh dill to taste if you wish, but I encourage you to try a good quality Dill essential oil, like the one I get from Young Living.

Making this deviled eggs recipe is super simple:

  1. Cut your peeled, hard-cooked eggs in half and “splurch” the yolks into a separate bowl, and place your egg whites onto a serving tray or container.
  2. Add all the other ingredients to the egg yolks and use a fork to thoroughly and completely combine smoothly.
  3. Fill a piping bag (or a plastic bag with the corner cut out works just fine, too!) with your egg yolk mixture and fill the egg white halves!

    Using a bag with the corner cut out as a piping bag saves a lot of mess and works just as well! Want to be fancy? You can add a piping tip on the bag to make the eggs more fancy!

  4. Garnish with a little dry dill or leave plain as desired!
  5. Chill before serving if you can stand the wait!
