1. Chinese Deviled Eggs
Finally, a pre-feast appetizer worth spoiling your dinner for. These deviled eggs are inspired by a few classic ingredients in Chinese cuisine, namely wasabi and zha cai (pickled mustard greens). The combination makes for a nuanced, harmonious flavor experience that'll have everyone going back for more.
2. Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs With Everything Bagel Seasoning
Everything bagel seasoning is so ubiquitious for a reason: it's a perfect combination of salty and savory that truly goes with everything. Including this finger food! With flavors that reference a toasted everything bagel with cream cheese and lox, a platter of these smoked salmon deviled eggs won't last long at any party or gathering.
3. Mexican Street Corn Deviled Eggs
Elotes, but in bite-size form. These street corn deviled eggs are filled with a creamy, yolky mixture of yellow corn and cotija cheese, then finished with paprika, chipotle powder, chili powder, and cilantro for what is truly the ideal appetizer.
4. Sweet Potato Deviled Eggs with Candied Pecans
If there's one thing traditional deviled eggs are missing, it's texture. The contrast of crunchy pecans candied in brown sugar and the smooth-as-silk sweet potato and mascarpone egg yolk filling makes these deviled eggs the epitome of balance.
5. Beet-Pickled Deviled Eggs
As striking as they are delicious, these deviled eggs get their magenta hue from an overnight soak in beet and pink peppercorn brine. The end result? All the sour, sweet, and earthy flavor you could possibly pack into bite-size grub.
6. Pesto Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs benefit from a little bit of brightness in the filling, and in this recipe, that comes in the form of fresh basil and lemon juice. The pesto-like combination is also paleo, which means these deviled eggs are free from refined sugar and and full of nutritious, whole ingredients that everyone can enjoy.
7. Avocado Deviled Eggs
Like egg yolks, avocados have an inherently smooth and creamy texture, so it just makes sense to incorporate them into your deviled eggs. With the addition of lime, cilantro, and garlic, these are reminiscent of a lip-smacking bowl of your favorite guacamole.
