These keto deviled eggs are a perfect ketogenic snack and appetizer that even your friends and family will love. They’re low carb, keto, and high in protein, so definitely a snack that will keep you full for longer!
Keto Deviled Eggs – A Great Snack
Deviled eggs are a classic dish. They’re the perfect finger food to serve at dinner parties-no forks needed.
At the same time, they also make a nice everyday snack. These keto deviled eggs are creamy and packed with flavor.
They’re also pretty cheap to make too. So, they’re the perfect snack if you’re on a budget. It takes very little time to make them too.
In fact, it’ll take you under 20 minutes to make them. And since it makes 6 servings, they’re good for keto meal prep. Do keep in mind that they last 3 to 4 days in the fridge. Though I prefer to eat mine within 2 days. To keep them fresh, make sure you store them in a good airtight storage container.
I recommend these storage containers because they are made out of glass thus will help your food last longer. I don’t recommend keeping these deviled eggs in the freezer, as the texture won’t be great once you thaw them.
If you’re having trouble using them up, you can also use them in your lunches too. For instance, you can use them to make a pretty tasty Caesar salad, use them in lettuce wraps, or toss them with some sautéed broccoli and bacon.
Yum! What I love most about these deviled eggs is that you don’t need a ton of ingredients. And as an added bonus, they’re ingredients you probably already have at home.
If not, you can make simple substitutions.
What You’ll Need to Make Keto Deviled Eggs
- Mayonnaise: This adds creaminess. You can also use Greek yogurt, or if you’re dairy-free, you can use avocado mayonnaise or even mashed avocado. This adds heart-healthy fat.
- Dijon mustard: This adds some heat. If you like it hotter, you can add some hot sauce. Don’t like the heat? You can use yellow mustard instead.
- White vinegar: This adds some zing. If you don’t have white vinegar, you can also use red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, or some lemon zest.
- Salt and black pepper
- Paprika: This is used to garnish your deviled eggs. They also add some sweetness to the eggs too. If you have smoked paprika, you can use that too. It will add a nice smokiness to your eggs.
- Fresh parsley: This is used to garnish your deviled eggs.

So, it is pretty filling.
How to Boil Eggs for Deviled Eggs?
You want to make sure your eggs are boiled just right so that they’re firm, not runny. To do this, bring your water to a boil then add your eggs using a pair of tongs. Boil for 12 to 14 minutes, then place the eggs in a bowl of cold water to cool.
Make sure you don’t cool your egg too long, or else they’ll be harder to peel. One tip for perfect boiled eggs. Make sure they’re at room temperature before you boil them.
This is so that they don’t cool down your boiling water. They will also cook more uniformly too. Nothing worse than having unevenly boiled eggs.
Other ways you can make hard-boiled eggs are in an egg maker like this one or even an Instant Pot.
