  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper plus more for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • green onions thinly sliced, for garnish


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low (or off) to ensure the water is no longer boiling or has bubbles and use a skimmer to place the eggs in the water. Then increase the heat back to high and set a timer for 14 minutes.
  • While the eggs are boiling, prepare an ice water bath and set aside.
  • After 14 minutes, remove the eggs from the water and place in the ice water bath.

  • Once the eggs have cooled completely, peel them and slice in half lengthwise.

  • Scoop the yolks into a small bowl and place the egg whites on a serving plate.
  • To make the filling, add the yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, Sriracha, cayenne, salt and pepper to a bowl.

  • Stir everything together until smooth. You can also use a hand blender to make it extra smooth.
  • Use a spoon to add a portion of the deviled egg mixture back into the hole of each egg white. Garnish with a sprinkle cayenne and green onions.

  • To Store: You can store any leftover deviled eggs for up to two days in the fridge.
  • If you're feeling fancy, use a pastry bag with a decorative tip to pipe the filling into the egg whites.
  • I recommend Dijon mustard rather than yellow mustard for more flavor. This Dijon mustard is also Whole30 compliant, if you're doing a Whole30.
  • This Sriracha is paleo and keto certified.
  • If you're in need of a platter to display your deviled eggs, this ceramic one is my favorite. And if you're transporting them, this travel carrier is great.
