Traditionally served during spring celebrations, deviled eggs are amazing year round for any fun party.

The typical filling is made with the cooked yolks mashed together with mayonnaise and other ingredients like mustard, pickle relish, and herbs.

But not all of us really like mayonnaise

Many don’t enjoy the taste, smell, or texture of this wiggly-jiggly condiment.

Don't like mayo? You can still enjoy deviled eggs with our tasty recipe. Instead of mayonnaise, we use an easy substitute: sour cream! We share the recipe now: https://foodal.com/recipes/appetizers/no-mayo-deviled-eggs/

Good news, though – you can still have this yummy appetizer, but without the mayo.

In our recipe, we keep all of the classic flavors, but replace the mayonnaise with a perfect substitute: sour cream!

Sour cream provides the same creaminess and tanginess in the filling, making it an easy replacement.

You can also try other products of a similar taste and texture, like plain yogurt or creme fraiche. Read up on more common fresh cheese varieties to get even more fun inspiration for changing up the filling.

Combined with classic ingredients like relish, mustard, and fresh herbs, our no-may deviled eggs have a great taste, all in one bite! Get our recipe now on Foodal: https://foodal.com/recipes/appetizers/no-mayo-deviled-eggs/

You may even want to try our magical egg-free mayo for another idea – this delicious spread is made with aquafaba, the leftover liquid from canned chickpeas.

Cooking by the Numbers…

Step 1 – Boil the Eggs

Perfect Deviled Eggs | Foodal.com

Hard boil the eggs, until the yolks are completely cooked. Chill completely and remove the shells.

Step 2 – Cut and Separate the Yolks and Whites

Hard-Boiled Eggs Recipe | Foodal.com

Using a sharp knife, cut each egg in half lengthwise, wiping your knife after each cut to keep it clean and free of any clinging yolk pieces.

Carefully remove the yolks by gently squeezing the whites. They should pop out easily. If they don’t, gently scrape them out with a spoon.

Place the yolks in a separate bowl. Set aside the empty halves on a clean plate.

Step 3 – Make the Filling

Add the sour cream, yellow mustard, pickle relish, salt, and herbs to the bowl with the yolks. Mash everything together with a fork until all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined and the mixture is smooth.

Step 4 – Fill

Feeling fancy? Transfer the yolk mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe the mixture into the empty halves.

If you don’t want to take the extra step of piping, simply use a spoon to scoop out the mixture and place in the halves.

Step 5 – Garnish and Serve

Of course, no classic deviled egg is complete without a dash or two of paprika on the top! Sprinkle the paprika over each one.

I like to garnish mine with some extra fresh herbs as well.

Chill them until ready to serve. Now, try not to eat them all yourself before these make it to the table!

None of the Mayo, All of the Flavor

Hey, you mayo haters!

You don’t need to stare longingly at a plate of deviled eggs, just because they have your least favorite condiment mixed in them.

In our recipe, you can substitute this ingredient with creamy and tangy sour cream.

The result?

A tasty dish to serve and eat at your next party!

While we use classic ingredients like mustard (try making your own!), pickle relish, and paprika, you can easily amp up the flavors!

Mix in soy sauce, wasabi, and garnish with sesame seeds for a fun alternative. Top with bacon, or use other herbs like tarragon or thyme for other fresh flavor ideas.

And for another delicious alternative, you might want to give our deviled eggs filled with guacamole. Fresh and zesty perfection.

Whatever you decide – they’re going to be so tasty!

    • Wow, thanks, Benita! The chives are a great option, but you can certainly vary the garnishes to change up the presentation – herbs like fresh dill or parsley would look amazing as well.
