Keto Deviled Eggs
Is there anyone who doesn't like deviled eggs? There probably is somewhere.... What about team mayo or team mustard? Well, what about being team BOTH? I am not a HUGE fan of mustard, but I do believe a little bit of Dijon mustard is the perfect addition to creamy mayo based deviled eggs.
And then you add in all the delicious spices and WATCH OUT!
What Are the Best Eggs for Keto Deviled Eggs
This is an interesting question! Most people might think there is no difference. I raise my own chickens and therefore have fresh eggs every day. But let me tell you something - they are WAY harder to peel than store bought eggs. There are many tips and tricks to make it easier, however, so don't let this deter you from hard boiling your farm fresh eggs!
My husband likes to use the Instant Pot to cook hard boiled eggs and not only do they come out perfectly each time, but they are also super easy to peel.
My advice? Use the freshest, most organic eggs possible and hard boil them in the Instant Pot if you can!
What Are Mini Gherkins?
Mini Gherkins are just small pickles! They are used in this recipe to make the stump of the pumpkin decoration. If you aren't doing the fall or pumpkin theme, you can easily leave them out. OR keep them in if you love pickles.
Can I Make Deviled Eggs Ahead of Time
I would not make deviled eggs too far in advance. You can most definitely hard boil the eggs in advance. I wouldn't keep them for more than a day or two, but if you do hard boil them ahead of time, just keep them in an airtight container in your fridge.
I would not take the yolks out until you are ready to make your final preparations.
How Many Carbs Are in a Keto Deviled Egg?
Most Keto deviled eggs fall in the range of 1-2 net carbs for each half. This is not bad at all considering how filling deviled eggs are!
How to Store Keto Deviled Eggs
I generally don't store them for too long after making them. Honestly, though, I'm not sure I've EVER had leftovers. These keto deviled eggs are simply too yummy. But on the rare occasion I've had to store them, as long as they are in a good container in the fridge, they will last for 24-48 hours. Probably longer, but I tend to not test the waters with eggs.
How to Make Keto Deviled Eggs
Peel the hard boiled eggs and slice them in half lengthwise.
Remove the yolks from the eggs and put them into a medium bowl.
Mash the egg yolks and get as many clumps out as possible.
Add the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, paprika, and salt to taste to the bowl with the egg yolks. Stir and continue mashing until smooth.
Pipe the egg mixture into the center of the hard boiled egg whites.
(optional) To complete the pumpkin look, cut the tips of the ends off of the gherkins, and place them onto the eggs to form the stem of the “pumpkin”.
