Best Damn Deviled Eggs are creamy and tangy. They are a flavor bomb appetizer!
Deviled or “Stuffed” Eggs are the perfect addition to any party or gathering and a staple at our family dinners!
Best Damn Deviled Eggs show up as often as fried chicken and sweet tea do at social events in the South. At church socials, family reunions, barbeques, and celebrations you can always find at least one platter of this quintessential side dish.
This recipe is actually my husband’s recipe. It’s basic, unadulterated Stuffed Eggs. However, they are full of flavor. The texture is smooth and creamy studded with sweet pickles that add a briny flavor and a little crunch.

How far in advance can I make Best Damn Deviled Eggs?
- You can make deviled eggs up to 2 days in advance. The key is to keep the whites and egg yolk filling separately. Wrap the egg white halves well with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. Keep the yolk filling sealed in a resealable plastic bag with all the air squeezed out. When you’re ready to assemble, simply snip the corner off the bag and fill the egg whites with the mixture.
- For assembled ready-to-serve deviled eggs, you can fill the eggs and store them covered up to 12 hours ahead or overnight.
How long can deviled eggs stay out of the refrigerator?
- If you serve Best Damn Deviled Eggs or another dish that contains hard boiled eggs at a party, place your tray on a bed of ice to keep the eggs cold.
- Even on ice hard boiled eggs should only be left of for 2 hours. If possible, refrigerated after 2 hours if there are any left. If they sit out longer than 2 hours, throw the eggs out.
