Horseradish Deviled Eggs

We made these deviled eggs for the Super Bowl, and, as you can imagine, they were a way bigger hit than the game itself. But even if the game was somewhat exciting, these deviled eggs would have still been successful.

The recipe is similar to that of my Spicy Deviled Eggs, but I took the recipe up a notch with some prepared horseradish. The end result was the traditional, creamy deviled eggs many people know and love with a kick of tolerable spice in each mouthful.

Horseradish Deviled Eggs
Yields: 15 servings*
-15 large eggs
-2 tablespoons minced pickled jalapenos
-2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
-6 tablespoons Trader Joe's Wasabi Mayonnaise (or plain mayonnaise)
-4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
-Salt and black pepper, to taste
-Squirt of fresh lemon juice
-Paprika and chopped chives, for garnish

1.) Put the eggs in a large saucepan and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat, then cover, and remove the saucepan from the heat. Allow the eggs to sit for 10 minutes. 
2.) Remove eggs from pan and shock in ice water. Peel the eggs and cut in half. Remove the yolks to a medium-sized bowl, and mash with the back of a fork.
3.) Add the jalapenos, horseradish, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and lemon juice to the bowl. Mix until smooth and creamy. 
4.) Spoon the mixture into a piping bag. Arrange the egg whites on a serving platter. Pipe a heaping tablespoon of the egg yolk mixture into each of the egg whites. Lightly sprinkle each egg with paprika and chopped chives.

*15 servings seems a bit random, but I used 15 eggs based on how many people we had coming over. If you wanted to just make 12 eggs/servings, I'd recommend starting with 1 tablespoon jalapenos, 1 teaspoon horseradish, 4 tablespoons mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons mustard, and tasting/adjusting from there.

I'm seriously craving another one of these deviled eggs right now. I loved the kick of spice the wasabi, jalapenos, and horseradish added to each bite, while the cool, creamy texture of the filling helped to calm everything down a bit. Z's cousin is actually anti-spice, but he still loved these deviled eggs - they were just spicy enough, without ruining his palate for the entire evening. 


  1. Ahh this sounds delicious! Now I want some deviled eggs...
