Ingredients Notes

  • Eggs: Eggs are obviously the star of the show in a deviled egg recipe. Below you will find my tips for how to cook the perfect hard boiled egg. You can also use a Dash egg cooker for quick and easy, perfect eggs every time. Try these Tuna Deviled Eggs

  • Mayonnaise: The mayo adds a nice creamy element to these Pesto Deviled Eggs. You could also use greek yogurt or even unsweetened coconut yogurt. It is also delicious made with this Roasted Garlic Mayo

  • Pesto: Any store-bought pesto will work for this recipe. I like to get use one that is extra garlicky.

  • Sour Cream: This adds a bright acidity to these Pesto Deviled Eggs. You could also substitute greek yogurt, plain coconut yogurt, extra mayonnaise, or some of my Avocado Ranch Dressing.

  • Microgreens: The micro greens add a nice crunch and pack a nutritional punch. I grow my own using this kit.

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1: Slice the eggs in half lengthwise and scoop the yolks into a mixing bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork.

STEP 2: To the mixing bowl with the yolks, add the mayonnaise, pesto, and sour cream. Mix until the ingredients are well combined.

STEP 3: Transfer the yolk mixture to a pastry bag or resealable plastic bag. If using a resealable plastic bag, snip off a corner of the bag. Pipe the mixture into the egg whites.

STEP 4: Top each deviled egg with some fresh micro greens, if desired.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Storage: Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

  • Add avocado: These pesto deviled eggs are delicious with some mashed avocado added. Add ½ of a small avocado. It adds a silk richness.

  • Add meat: These are delicious with some crispy bacon, prosciutto, ham, or pancetta added.

  • Other add-in ideas: capers, red onion, black olives, sun-dried tomatoes,

  • Make egg salad: Chop up the hardboiled eggs, mix in all the other ingredients and make a delicious egg salad. Pile it on some of my Keto Everything Buns or make lettuce wraps.

  • Deviled egg tray: To keep the eggs from tipping over, I recommend using a deviled egg tray.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make perfect hardboiled eggs?

This is how I make perfect hard-boiled eggs: Place the eggs in a large saucepan with cold water. Add enough water so that the eggs are fully submerged. Over high heat, bring the water to a rolling boil. Once the water is boiling, remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let sit for 10-12 minutes. Submerge the eggs in a cold-water bath before peeling.
