7 Deviled Egg Recipes for Easter That Are Downright Heavenly

Easter isn’t just about candy eggs anymore. Sure, there’ll be plenty of sugar-coated and chocolate-dipped treats to go around — but this spring, we’re giving a little love to eggs of the deviled kind.

We know what you’re thinking. You’ve probably seen them lying cold and lifeless on a party platter. Or pumped full of mayo at your elderly aunt’s house. But when we say deviled eggs, we mean the ones that are bright and zippy, with a kick that gave them their hellish name in the first place. From the avocado-filled to the salmon-stuffed, here are the wicked bites you need for a heavenly Easter feast.

The Classic

On Easter, some people will be dyeing eggs. Others will be looking for them. But as for us? We’ll be whipping up Jelly Toast’s classic deviled egg, which gets its kick from Dijon mustard and sweet pickle relish.

Guac and Roll

For our yolk-adverse friends, we give you full permission to use avocado instead. Krista and Michele over at The Lovely Bits have the genius recipe.

The Gouda Life takes a little inspiration from our friends down in N’awlins, spicing these bad boys up with Creole seasoning and pickled okra.
